you have information about your opponents and people tend to play more like nits in zoom so i guess regular tables are easier than zoom

Regular suits the thinking player,the focus is on exploitative play based on how your opponents are playing (HUD's are V. useful).Also the amount of times I have stacked a cash game by calling an open shove with JJ and they show a 64o as they are bored.
Zoom is profitable by playing strict tight hand ranges. You cannot call wide as people can see more hands and thus play a tighter range.
Play what you'll enjoy and you will play better. I prefer cash as you can identify weaker players and milk them dry. Zoom is very much based on your preflop play so if you're happy playing a tight strategy with no info on your opponents, go for it.

yes it is true, zoom is a robotic game, it is necessary to have a very strong bankroll, and experience at the tables, the game zoom is fast, so the bads can not shake during the game. If it is to start playing now better start on the laps.

re: Poker & Zoom vs regular
maybe you play a lot of cash zoom ?? it was a time when I played but I did not face it and I quit, some friends tell me that I gave up slightly, but I find it more safe and remember that I meet many regulars but also recreational, it is a balanced area, but I did not have much money to deal with, I do not respect the bankroll.

It seems to me that zoom poker is harder than regular cash.
It seems to me that zoom poker is harder than regular cash. On the one hand, the zoom is much more interesting, because in an hour you play twice or even three times as many hands, but for some reason I always lose in zoom poker. It seems to me that in order to win in a zoom poker, you need to go into the game only on nuts hands or monsters hands. Perhaps there is a special strategy for poker's zoom, I think in any kind of poker you can win the main thing to know the right strategy, and of course have luck.

I play zoom when I'm just wanting to get some hands in for 5-10 minutes. I don't normally play it any longer than that. If I double up I usually take off or if I lose, I get out.
When you think about it, it's more of a gamble because you have nothing to read on from your table and your opponents play. You can try and remember their stack, but that's a bit unreasonable. It's still fun for me every once in a while but I prefer regular cash games.

On regular tables, the select table is possible, so the winrate is higher than in the zoom

Zoom is cooler poker
You win quick and you lose quick. Tilt will easily get the better of you.

It depends if you want to play with information or not. With one table and a full ring, you have a lot more information to play with than say a Zoom game where you might meet the same player once every 50 hands.
