    Good vid, but FL Zoom is still dead nowadays, and only 10/20c limit, do you think there'll be higher stakes, and maybe any traffic?

    Maybe they'll try a promotion lucrative enough to drive traffic from the cash games.

    Re: JTo barrel UI

    If we could develop a reputation to exploit later we could probably realize some value by getting snapped off. On a regular table we could easily parlay a spewy image, but not so much in zoom.

    Re: A9o turn and river plan

    I think on that board we don't have much SD value. What do you think about barreling against AJ/AQ and small pps with a heart draw?

    A couple general zoom tips:
    - Note players seated at one table in the lobby. They're more likely to be fish. Also, if you spot them on a second table it means they've fast folded on the other.
    - CTRL + fold lets you watch the full hand. Watching hands early in a session can help identify the marks in a pool.

    To be honest I doubt it

    POkerstars is acutely aware of normal Fixed Limit traffic and they've already said they won't do anything that would jepoardise the normal games so we may not see Zoom FL above Micros.

    However we may see one off monthly promotions or something like that as datsmahname said so I wouldn't give up on it yet

    Hi datsmahname


    Agreed and in fact I had a very similar hand in an earlier video with JTo where I barrelled in similar circumstances. I think on this occasion the board just came that little bit worse but I can certainly see where you're coming from


    I like the idea for sure. As I said at the time it was a close decision and I certainly don't object to betting the turn. Betting the river as well on such a huge brick might be a little optimistic but looking at where I am in my range for 3-betting a HJ open I'm pretty dang low so turning my hand into a bluff here I don't think is out of the question at all. Nice line.


    Thanks :)

    Wish I'd have known that beforehand :p

    Thanks for your comments
