There are some great games available on RedKings Poker but the easiest ones are generally always in the low-stakes cash games and smaller buy-in tournaments.
It’s worth noting the higher stakes on the Ongame network are frequented by top European players so sometimes it’s better to avoid those games.
That said, it’s possible to find $5/$10 No-Limit Hold’em tables with a viewed-flop percentage of 35-40%.
