I recently tried playing online for the first time and I was astonished by how fast it was. More than one time my timer actually ran out before I could figure out what I wanted to do, and I was auto-folded, one time in the middle of trying to set the amount for a pre-flop raise with pocket pairs.
I feel like I don't have time to even try to calculate odds because the play is too fast, and then I get flustered and can't even think what possible board combinations there could be, and then at the showdown I am not even following what every player had before the cards go back into the virtual deck. Is this a usual for players new to online play? Should I try a different site that might not be as fast? Should I just give up trying to play online because I'm slow?
