Six ways to Zoom

teampro-thumb.JPGWhen I saw first time Zoom poker for the first time on the PokerStars client, I clicked the Zoom button immediately - and from the first moment I liked "Zoom". Finally I found a way to play the game when I don't have anything to do for a while. So here are some tips that I think could be valuable for people who are newbies in the world of poker who want to play in a responsible way. That's why you play poker and not roulette, isn't it?

Dag's Top 6 Zoom Tips

1. Play Zoom anytime you are under a time pressure, like when you have half an hour or one hour sitting in the airport, waiting for your friend, before you go to work. It's really the best way to play poker if you have shortage of time or you just want to have fun - you won't be waiting at the table while other people are thinking about the game.

2. If you come home after some party, don't play the highest limits, otherwise you'll go broke. Imagine that with Zoom you are playing a lot of hands - more than usual - so you should know there will be technically more bad beats and more good cards in the hands of your opponents.

3. Discipline and patience are very important as well. If you don't play aces only, and your range is quite wild, with Zoom you should play with higher self-discipline.

4. If you are not able to handle bad beats quite easily, just click sit out after you suffer a couple of tough ones. Getting tilted will cost you much more money than on the regular table.

5. If you are a very tight player who plays premium hands only, you can take seats on more tables, so you will be in an active hand more often.

6. Don't forget take important notes about your opponents. You never know when it's going to help you make a right decision.

I like Zoom and I have a lot of fun playing. Whenever I have free half an hour and my MacBook is with me, I click PokerStars and play Zoom Omaha. I do not get bored by waiting too long for the action. I am focused on the game and I enjoy the thrill of Zoom.

Good luck!
