It's easier to make money and it's easier to lose money. I went from 80 bucks to 220 bucks in one night.
A day later(today, that is) I was down to my last 7 bucks and faced an all in from an opponent.
I called with AQs, got lucky and won. I've been playing now for 3 hours and that 14 bucks become 80.
So remember: you win faster, lose faster.

Zoom Poker is very fast, but often the extraction of money. When you lose your bankroll play Zoom poker.

Take it easy. Everything that comes fast, goes away fast also. Maybe the game zoom is ideal for those players who play with only one screen, precisely because they require much more attention, differently of many of the regular players who are on multiple tables simultaneously.

This exactly! A lot of players here come and ask for an advice, and then they come back at you telling that everything what they did was all right. Then why are you asking for help if you already know so and are so sure in yourself? You're just building up controversy and fuss. If you ask a question, be nice and respectful when answered. Just absorb the information you get.

And the OP of this thread seems like he's already made up his mind. He's getting dragged/taunted towards the Zoom play.

playing Zoom or not

You would be better off playing a 50/50 sit and go rather than zoom.

I have to admit I have more trouble playing zoom. I feel like I can better adjust my play when i can profile the people I am with.

Personally, i hadn't much luck on zoom games but if you doing well just go for it!
One question regarding zoom, which hands you find playable to all in preflop? THANK YOU

In my case i had tried waiting only for pairs but i assume most players do that.

Players should play to their strengths. If you are strong on Zoom and consistently win, then by all means stay with it. But the above statements are also true. Because you are playing more hands the swings can get pretty wide (win/loss amount). If you do better playing with more information, then playing at standard tables where you can take better notes on players is certainly not going to hurt your game. :) If you are good at preflop hand selection, play fairly tight for the most part, and are good at stealing blinds and reading opponents based on bet-size, then Zoom be quite profitable. GL!

I'm a Zone Poker only player. (Bovada's version of Zoom.)

Just play tight, control the pot and let the fishcakes bluff it off / pay you off.

I really like Zone Poker because it's completely readless, what with the anonymity.

What is better zoom or regular?
Zoom version is nice- fast hands, not needed to wait for next hand but I in zoom always ended losing cash, yes of course sometimes in lucky day I get some nice cash.
Regular tournaments for me is better, safier money spent, regularly I get in money, but dont like that waitting :) What I am doing to get over that dislike? - I am watching newest films and serials in small window :D

Zoom I do not play for about a month, and the result of my bankroll is stable. Zoom I was once up once down, but it is a good way to clean a bonus

Zoom is o.k. if you like the quick action, and want to play lots of hands. The problem is you pretty much have to play cards, not poker when you play zoom, because it is hard to get a handle on the other players tendencies, which makes it very easy to overvalue hands against unknown opponents. I like regular ring game tables because you have a chance to read your opponents and get a better idea of strengths and weaknesses.

of course zoom is better, more hands = more $$ if you are decent enough.

Zoom is okay if you really move fast with a clear mind. I dun like zoom cause I can't manage well in ring game but I won't doubt that zoom is a well money maker style.

Hi. Difficult game, but is better, than on poker stars not to find anywhere. In particular on big limits.

I play a zoom nl10, everything is excellent, the main thing to control itself for a stolomd there is minus, it is the best of all to leave because of a table and to go to walk
