This is a discussion on What is zoom? within the online poker forums, in the Poker Rooms section; I have seen that on some pokerstars tables it puts zoom, can someone explain to me what it is exactly? Thank you!
I played it, and I think that basically it is that when you finish playing a hand, you change the table randomly and you can leave the hand and the table before the hand ends in play continuing in another table and so on ...
I think that zoom is a kind of fast poker, it exists both in cash games and in tournament games, that is, you are given a card and if you don’t like it, you fold it and you are instantly transferred to another table, thereby increasing the number of hands played for less playing time in cash and tournaments.
Simultaneous play at four Zoom tables in terms of the number of hands is comparable to 16 tables of regular cash games, only it is much easier to play Zoom. For a comfortable game at 16 tables, you will need a pair of monitors, otherwise the open windows will overlap each other, which is very inconvenient. By playing Zoom, you can easily open as many tables as possible, even on a small laptop.
