I do sometimes. It's nice to have couple of 5NL tables open when playing few tourneys. Though 5NL can be very frustrating sometimes.. Big Smile

You should really check 5NL Zoom part of this video series : https://www.youtube.com/user/teampsxflixx helped me a lot.

You will do good just remember not to bluff much and bet big when you have a hand. It's easy to get value from worse hands at 5NL Zoom. GL Smile

I only played PLO as fast poker games but strangely for me only rush was profitable lol

The only advice i could give you is to have a very solid bankroll if you start, at least 50 buy ins, the variance as the winnings could be huge!

Yeah i play zooms games but on other networks and it is known as speed poker on ipoker network, i used to play zoom on pokerstars but tilted my bankroll away and when i rebuild i use other sites due to bonuses as i have already use up the bonuses on pokerstars so other site for me. Good luck with zoom/speed/rush games as they are hard and if you have big leaks you can lose lot of money or if you play a lot and get tilted like me you can be on the road to losing your entire bankroll. Cheers good luck mate!

Thanks Heskor. I'm doing preety well at 2NL and I really don't tilt much. The swings at these games are huge, I have to agree with that.

Well I played on NL2 zoom and the field is quite fishy however I played some NL5 speed on ipoker and seems that's full of regs and shorts but beatable at least. I'll play it as my main game when I have a proper bankroll to avoid being broke and damage my BR bacause of tilt.

i find zoom/rush/fast/bang/fcuk poker way too stressful for me- you are always in the thick of action and you always must be making decisions which can cost you if you make even a single mistake. one of the most important tip (besides the obvious understanding of basic strategy) is to be making constant mini breaks- say one 5 min break in 15 min or sth similar

That is actually a good idea. Will start doing those breaks. I think zoom isn't too stressfull for me, I handle it quite well; besides, I have a small monitor so it's the best way of grinding a large amount of volume without having to use a magnifying glass to see my hole cards Big Smile

Taking a break by playing freerolls ? That would drive me mad. The amount of donkeys in there just gets me tilting even more Big Smile

No kidding.. I admit i have few times just went all-in the very first hand, but i usually try and play serious Tongue Luckily "the very weird style" allows you to cash almost every time.
