Get More Poker With Zone Poker
Ask any player what they love about poker, and none of them will have “It’s a slow game” at the top of the list. Poker’s all about action; every time you get dealt a fresh set of cards, you’re getting a new opportunity to win some cash or build your chip stack. Players want more of these opportunities, not fewer. We want more hands per hour.
That’s where Zone Poker comes in. When you play the regular cash tables at Bodog Poker, you can expect around 90-100 hands per hour if you’re playing 6-max. But if you play at the Zone tables, you can double or even triple that volume. It’s a great way to speed up the game and build your bankroll without adding tables to your workload. You might even have a bigger edge in Zone Poker, depending on your style of play.
4 on the Floor
Zone Poker works by putting all the players in a common pool, based on what stakes they’re playing, and letting the software seat them at random. As soon as you enter the Zone, you’ll be assigned a seat and dealt a hand. Then, as soon as that hand is over, you’ll be randomly placed at another seat – maybe at the same table, maybe somewhere else.
Even better, you don’t have to wait for the entire hand to end if you’ve already folded. As soon as you muck your cards, you get transported to your next seat and dealt in. This cuts down tremendously on the amount of time spent between hands. It’s a much more efficient way to get in more volume without multi-tabling, and since you’re already playing at anonymous tables when you play at Bodog Poker, there’s less need to take the time to profile your opponents – just get those next two (or four) cards and go at it.
That doesn’t mean you can’t multi-table when you’re in the Zone. You can play two of these tables at the same time when you play at Bodog Poker, for an even bigger boost in volume. You should be able to see more hands per hour than you would playing the maximum of four tables at the regular cash games. Just make sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew. Zone Poker comes at you fast and furious, so instead of putting that pedal to the metal right away, start with one table, get your bearings, and take it from there. You may never look at poker the same way again.
