2-decks and automatic shufflers. Decent dealers too. 9max
Just checked my hands played last summer for live
Hours played : 34
Hands played : 799
So average hands/hr was 23.5
This was over a period of 3-4 months so different players involved. The only thing I can think of which may slow down the game is that the dealer uses a calculator to calculate rake at the end of the hand, but it wouldn't be that significant imo. Also the dealer does a wash shuffle quickly before putting the cards in the machine, but again, this can't account massively.
BTW, anyone gotten back to poker after a 3-4 month break ? I'm going to start grinding again next week and I've barely played since March, well haven't played at all actually. Not feeling too comfortable about it atm.
