Mid level cash tables have almost the same number playing as the micro tables, where blinds are structured at $1/2, $2/4, $3/6, $5/10 and $10/20.
Higher entry players will see many others entering the fray enjoying $15/30, and $30/60. Much over that, the opposition thins.
Omaha and Stud players will find most of the action takes place at the levels below $5/10. Those who enjoy HORSE cash tables tend to play at the lower levels and you will have to pick your moments to see action on the HOSE and Razz tables.
At the table

Tool bars at the table give player shortcuts to the lobby, cashier, hand history and a replay of previous hands. Plus an options tab allows players useful preferences including optional four color decks, rabbit cam, chat bubbles, hot keys and favorite seat position.
