During peak hours (GMT) you will find around 500 players online. You will get a decent amount of action at low-stakes and will be able to easily find 10 plus NLH tables full. There is a little action at mid and high-stakes. Although SkyPoker offers PLO and PLO8, these game types are not popular and you will not find many tables during peak hours and even less off-peak. There is a reasonable amount of action in SNGs with many running at low stakes and a fair few runing at mid and even high-stakes. There are also some MTTs available, but the fields are pretty small – rarely more than 100 players.
