PokerStars Zoom Close to Launch at PokerStars?
PokerStars is apparently very close to rolling out “PokerStars Zoom,” which appears to be similar to Full Tilt Poker’s Rush Poker.
A new section of PokerStars’ website says the news fast-paced PokerStars game will be released soon, and that players should “stay tuned for more details.” You can check out the PokerStars’ site here for more details.
Here’s a description of PokerStars Zoom from the site:
PokerStars Zoom is a new fast-paced way to play poker. You’re always at the centre of the action and can play more hands per hour than ever before.
Fold your hand in Zoom Poker and you’ll instantly be moved to a new table and get a new hand. You can even ‘fast fold’ out of turn and the players at your old table will only see it when the action’s on you. By that time, you’ll already be playing your next hand at a different table!
The description sounds much like the popular “Rush Poker” on Full Tilt Poker that was on the online poker site before its gaming license was suspended last year.
PokerStars Zoom will be found in a section of the lobby in the PokerStars client, once it goes live. It is not yet known what games will be included other than no-limit hold’em, or what stakes will be included. We will have more details as they become available.
