At peak hours
As a partner of one of the world's largest online poker networks, Paradise Poker is privileged to an enormous player pool; the end result of which is a reliable, though fluctuating, stream of online poker action. Because IPN is closed to the US poker
market, online poker player traffic peaks in the European evenings, and traffic numbers tend to dwindle a bit when the European players log off for the night.
The level of player competition at Paradise Poker tends to run parallel to the size of the stakes involved. The micro-limit cash games offer the softest opposition, however, turning a noticeable profit at those levels is a challenge in and of itself. With each step up to the next rung in the online poker stakes ladder, the skill-set and poker strategy
of the players improve. The higher stakes are predominately populated with experienced, formidable poker veterans.
