What is Zoom Poker?
By now, you have probably heard of the new Zoom Poker which was created by the massive online poker site PokerStars within the past few weeks here. This new fast-paced poker game is essentially PokerStars' own version of the popular game called "Rush Poker" on the old Full Tilt Poker, and it was one that hit the online poker world with a bang as soon as it was released. Zoom Poker has done nearly the exact same thing, as players on the site have given rave reviews to the new style of poker, and also the fact that PokerStars now offers it! So the question is though, what exactly is Zoom Poker?
Well, for starters this is a game that is MUCH more fast-paced than any type of regular or online poker that you've played to this point. The idea behind the game is that players are playing with a huge pool of players who are playing with specific limits. So if you sit down in the $0.25/$0.50 limits, then you are playing only with players from that specific pool. You are dealt into a hand instantly and have the option to play the hand, fold it, or "fast fold" it. Regardless of how you fold, you will automatically be switched to a new table with a new hand instantly. The idea behind fast folding is that you can fold out of turn and be moved, so that you don't have to wait until the action is on you.
The reason why Zoom Poker was created is to help those players who like to stay in the action constantly do just that, stay involved by seeing more hands in a shorter period of time. Players will see a ton more hands per hour than they would at a standard poker table, and most players will even see more hands per hour than they would if they were multi-tabling as well! But, for all of the players out there who are looking to multi-table still, PokerStars offers you the option to multi-table your Zoom Poker tables as well to give you even MORE hands that you were able to see before.
What are the Advantages of Zoom Poker?
There are both positives and negatives of this, and of course the positives include being able to see many more hands per hour than before, and also to be able to get a new hand if you choose not to play the one you are dealt. This can help you avoid playing the bad hands out of "boredom" as some players find that this happens to them. Some of the other positives that come along with Zoom Poker are the fact that you can earn a very good amount of frequent player points from the site, and also quite a bit of rakeback as well!
What are the Disadvantages of Zoom Poker?
As far as the negatives go, you'll find that if you end up playing TOO many tables TOO fast, that you could potentially miss spots to steal the blinds, or play using your position against other opponents. On top of that though, you want to make sure that you are constantly aware of what is going on at the tables, and if you have too much going on often times you could find yourself getting a bit overwhelmed with the fast pace!
Overall, it seems that Zoom Poker is a popular choice for players, and one that should continue to grow as they offer more and more games over the next few weeks and months as well.
