I agree though, i'd rather the limit be less than 10 (4-6 seems optimal, probably 4 being ideal) however I just don't think it's that big of a problem.
yeah. The problem isn't that there will be a lot of people playing 10 tables, the problem is that there will be many who can competently play 6 tables of zoom, or even 8. And that does make a very significant difference for 200nl+. On Stars, the 500zoom pool is often quite ridiculously reg-infested, and the cap is 4 tables. Now I don't know if there will be enough traffic on Ipoker for 200-speed to run, but if it does I wouldn't be surprised to see some very bad games, and that hurts everyone because there will be less fish in the normal 200 games, and the speed games will be bad.
