I have played both modalities, one gives you the possibility of a faster game and at the same time go instantly with the best hands you choose. The normal Cash, is a little more of patience and it gives you the possibility to read the previous game of your opponents, which you choose?

I like both

I just figured I should not play both at the same time, since the games are quite different and I sometimes mixed up the tables :confused:

I prefer to play regular tables. There you can watch the game opponents.

Zoom tables are good because you can play more hands for the same period of time. But I prefer ordinary tables.

I prefer zoom, it is faster and you can create a game pattern

Both require adjusting to the different player pools, but Zoom is great for exploiting.

I like both, Zoom and regular tables. Zoom is immediate results, regular tables are patience and longer sessions. Funny this is when I am on tilt I play the zoom

Regular tables are softer

Regular tables are softer, especially if you table select a bit. Zoom tend to attract a lot of grinders, and even casual players play less hands on Zoom, because the format takes away some of the boredom of waiting for decent starting hands.

The advantage of Zoom is, that it is somewhat easier to focus on each hand, you play, if you are playing a single Zoom table rather than 3-4 regular tables, which you need to get the same amount of volume. And of course there is no waiting to get in and out of tables. So if you only have like 20 minutes to play, Zoom is perfect.

I prefer Zoom by the volume of the game but as you mentioned, cash g. usually is better in relation to notes about players

Zoom/booste all the way. A lot of chances to grab $ while everyone is folding to find their perfect hand. The downside is bad beats are more frequent so i try to make sure to keep small % of my bankroll on table at any given time. Also easy to bank what ur making as you go unlike regular tables which often make you reenter with the same $ u had on table when u left

I choose regular tournaments. Statistically, this is the most profitable option for me.

I like zoom because I can focus better on 1 table.
If I multitable I find I can't make my best decisions

I usually stick to playing cash tables rather than zoom. I prefer Cash tables because they give you the opportunity to pickup players habits and trends.

It all depends on the time I have infront of me. Of course, if I don't have 30 minutes or more, I play agressive Zoom (PLO or NL)

If I have plenty of time, I like a patient PLO cash game.

I choose naturally cash game. What's the hurry? It is necessary to enjoy the game with any hands.

It depends on the time you have available to play and your adaptation in each mode! I recommend that you choose the one that makes you more comfortable.

Zoom tables - like a sprint of 100 meters. It's exciting, but leaves little chance for a sound calculation. You rely only on intuition. I prefer a regular table. since there are already more options in choosing a strategy for different players.

Regular

I prefer to play on regular tables, so I can do a reading of my opponents.

Definitely I prefer to play ZOOM for the speed of the game which allows me to see a great amount of hands in a short time, it is a modality which you do not have many opportunities to know about your opponent but I put some notes and his way of playing in zoom to not confuse on cash game or MTTs. If I decided to play something else I would not play cash games I would change it better for a tournament. Good luck at the tables !!!
