      Hi,

      I would like to know if it should be more profitable to play at ZOOM NL100 or to Play at normal cash game table NL100 ?

      6 Max or 9 Handed ?

      Where the level of players are lower: ZOOM or normal cash game ?

      Where we can have a bigger Edge, Zoom or Normal Cash Game ?

      I'm specially interested of winner player answer, players experience, players examples.

      Thank for you answer.

      Regards

      Table selection, is key at NL 50+. I would say ring games but that's not true we got many players that plays NL 200+ on zoom/rush and is litteraly crushing!

      Depends a lot on your bumhuting skillz. If you table select really hard then your obviously going to get a better winrate on regular tables. Overall there's better fish/reg ratio on standard tables and the fish are worse since they generally play looser then zoom fish.

      On the other hand you get a lot more volume in playing zoom, you don't have to lose focus table selecting and it easy to put in short sessions while on standard tables you pretty much commit yourself to 2h+ sessions since it takes 30mins to get good tables going so its pointless to play short sessions.

      Personally i play nl100 both FR and SH regular and zoom, depend on how much time i have available and what i feel like playing. My winrate is slightly worse on zoom but since i get more h/h my hourly is basically the same.

      Winrates are lower in zoom, but hourly bigger. I mix both from time to time, depends on if I want smooth sailing with fishes (regular tables) or am fine with constantly measuring dicks with regs for higher hourly (zoom).

      Wouldn't advice playing zoom if you're just breakevenish on regular tables.

      after some analyse
      arround 2200$ lost in zoom nl100-nl50 from my iphone, must of then with dificult hand to fold AA vs brelan. etc...,brelan vs flush backdoor flopped,.
      and of course some mistake from me but not too much, it is very very tigh, without a lost of mistake from opponant and without stats.
      as i have see i'm winning on normal 6 max table, so i'll retry slowly.
