      Zoom Poker Challenge - win ten times your profit

      Throughout Team Online Week (October 28 - November 3), each member of Team Online will play a one-hour session at Zoom Poker in a special $0.02/$0.04 game.

      If you manage to show a profit against the Team Online member then PokerStars will reward you with ten times that profit.

      Follow the PokerStars Team Online twitter account to find out who is playing when.

      Direct your way to the PCA

      The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is right around the corner and on top of the myriad of other ways to win, you can put your filmmaking skills to the test to win your own $15,000 package.

      about the Zoom Poker Challenge, what do u actually have to do? Will you be eligible if you show any profit during that hour, or do you have to win against the Team Online member?

      You have to win $ in hands against that specific PS Team Pro. Any profit you win v them is then multiplied by ten. To be honest, I've played 3 of them for the full hour and if you're playing stakes higher than say NL5/10 it's probably not worth your time, as you have to:

      1. Get in a hand with a specific player in a 1500 - 2000 player zoom pool.
      2. Have that player actually pick up a playable hand.
      3. Win the hand.

      Add to this that everyone on the table is looking to do the same thing as well and it becomes pretty difficult. There was one pro that was shoving every hand near the end which is probably your best bet.
