Following the “official” launch of Zoom Poker on PokerStars last week, the world´s largest online poker site has been tweeting tips on how to beat the Zoom Poker tables.
Acknowledging that Zoom Poker is a far different game than is played at the standard cash poker tables, PokerStars hopes that these tips will encourage players who “had a go” during the beta test stage to return to the Zoom Poker tables and take a second look.
Poker Zoom Tips
- ZoomTips 1) Identify which players at the tables are playing tight and which are raising/re-raising frequently.
- ZoomTips 2) A lot of players will be using the auto fold feature so widen your pre-flop opening range.
- ZoomTips 3) Don’t be afraid to put the pressure on, by 3 or 4 betting the active players at the table.
- ZoomTips 4) Don’t play too many tables. Zoom is much faster than normal tables. If you usually 10 table, 4 Zoom tables may feel the same.
- ZoomTips 5) Try both 6 handed and full ring Zoom tables see which suit your style best. Maybe even a mix of both!
- ZoomTips 6) If you’re watching a certain player to see how active they are, don’t auto fold if they’re first to act.
