02/24/2012 : POKERSTARS' ZOOM POKER LAUNCH IMMINENT
Fans of the old FTP Rush Poker are going to enjoy this one
The industry skinny is that Pokerstars is about to launch its much anticipated Zoom Poker, reportedly a proprietary take on the extremely popular Rush Poker offered by Full Tilt Poker before its Black Friday demise.
Various Pokerstars sources confirmed this week that Zoom is on the launchpad and will provide fast-action online poker in which anyone folding a hand at one of the new Zoom tables will immediately be moved to a new table and dealt a new hand. Players can ‘fast fold’ out of turn and their opponents at the former table will only see it when the action reaches them.
One indication that the launch is imminent is a currently active drive by Pokerstars to sign up players for the new turbo-driven tables.
