Yep. Rush poker was their last ace in the sleeve. If other rooms have comparable games than there is even less point in rejoining Full Tilt, should they reopen.

Nothing new - Terminal Poker works exactly the same as a RushPoker and is already more than a half of the year at the market.... Thumbs Up

I saw the news that pokerstars launched today their zoom poker on real money and i actually saw their blob post about it...

So i was pretty excited and i wanted to open the poker client and you guess what: there is no zoom poker tab, so i reinstalled the poker app, same result. I shoot them an email about it about 6 hours ago and so far no reply.

Do you guys have the zoom tab?

I have talked with all my friends and also some guys on a national poker forum and none have the zoom tab. Even more, all european players don't have acces to zoom poker.

Maybe we need to wait for the real deal to reopen Tongue

Always liked playing RUSH Poker at FT and there's not a lot of options out there for U.S. players so none of the sites you mention will allow some of us the opportunity to play simular games. Maybe Carbon will see or hear something to come up with their own version of RUSH. Would be nice to play the fast paced game though!

Home > Poker News > Online Poker > ZOOM Poker Goes Live on PokerStars

ZOOM Poker Goes Live on PokerStars By: PokerListings.com
The much-anticipated, high-speed Zoom poker format has officially been released for real-money play on PokerStars.

Similar to the now-defunct Rush Poker format on Full Tilt, ZOOM allows players to move immediately to a new table and new hand whenever they fold.

You can fold at any point in a hand and jump to a new table or use the "fast fold" option even before it's your turn to act.

As it's still in beta mode, only a few ZOOM games (with around 1,500 players max allowed each) are running on PokerStars right now.

No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha ring games are the only games available but more game types and tournaments are expected to be added soon.

Choose your game and stake level in the Zoom lobby and cick "Join Game" to get started. You’ll be asked to choose your buy-in and the number of tables you want to play with up to four tables max.

If you stick around long enough to see the end of a hand you can see the replay by holding the CTRL key when you the click the Fold button.

As it is still in beta mode, if you find any bugs or have any comments, sned them to beta@pokerstars.com.

Check our PokerStars review to access our sign-up bonus code and exclusive freerolls.

Had the same problem until yesterday....ZOOM was only present in PokerStars.com software, so if you are from Romania, Estonia, Poland and using PokerStars.eu, you have to wait for update.
Today I switch of the poker client and it was already there .... secound hand in my trial round: 3 players going all-in preflop befor me, I'm holding QQ, so I call and they all showing AK /3 times/....flop is dry, so I'm winning, than comes turn and river : A + K. LOL what a surprise !!! Confused Confused Confused

It seems nowadays its a matter of time to get the same product with a different name.
Hard to keep the monopoly.
Even if you cant copy it 100% you make a tiny adjustment and you are done Smile

FT lost more ground again.

no spot is left empty in the market- so considering that there was a healthy demand for rush poker there is no surprises to see companies trying to satisfy the demand...i personally enjoyed rush poker on tilt- the idea of skipping the garbage hands and playing only the ones you like, and doing this quickly appealed to me Big Smile

Zoom poker is nice and its the same like rush poker. And another rooms like unibet & co. strts with another fast tablegames in the next days. Its the right way against the players, which use the time bank in every hand.

I missed rush poker. Last time was at full tilt. Terminal poker was the most similar thing i found. If you really want to get into the action rush poker is the solution. I knew the minute i played rush poker, it would appear at other pokersites. Smile

I like that other rooms and networks offers a fast game, not only poker stars. But this is another reason against a comeback of FullShit, äh FullTilt. They wait to long for their comeback and now rush poker is old school...
