      Decided to play the old but gold cash games with only 5BI but i have only these funds for now .Started zoom tables with 10$ on 0.01/0.02 and i beat most of the opponents.Today I'm + 3 BI but there on zoom poker is blind war and if you can steal good it will be +EV. There is one hand from now.
      Also Have 1 question why HUD dont show me statistics on zoom poker, but it works on normal tables.How to fix it ??

      There is an article and solution on HMs website.
      I'm in a bit of a hurry right now, or I'd look it up for you.

      It is also mentioned in our own software forum -- you might try searching there.

      If you haven't found anything by tomorrow, post here and I'll find it.

      HM2 works for me on zoom.

      Do you have the latest version?
      Is your HUD configured to display one on zoom tables?

      Here are some links to posts about HM2 and zoom.
      I'm guessing you'll find your answer in there.

      That is my first 10k hands on zoom nl2. What to improve and what to reduce what are your suggestions?

      Time to take a break.

      The setups DO suck.

      This is precisely the reason that I don't like SnGs in all of their various flavours.
      In a cash game, one bad hand can cost you a stack, true, but in tournament, one bad hand costs you a couple of hours of work.

      You can get the money back soon enough, but the time is gone forever.

      When you do get back after your break, post the bust out hand in the hand eval forum.

      If you played it well, then you have that to console you.
      If not, you might save yourself some money in the long run.
