Poker is a great game, but it does have a downside - the wait in between hands. When you fold your cards, you're stuck waiting around for the other players to finish. This issue can be alleviated if multi-tabling online, but even then you often find yourself either with big lapses between hands or having to act in too many hands at once.
PokerStars has just launched a test version of "Zoom Poker," their answer to all of these problems. When you're at a Zoom Poker table, every time you fold you are instantly moved to another table and dealt a new set of cards. It's fast paced and you can't get overwhelmed by having to play too many hands at once. Just take your time with each hand, and move on to the next immediately when you finish up!
With Zoom Poker, it is possible for players to participate in over 200 hands per hour, even while playing at just 1 table.
Currently, Zoom Poker is only available via the test client of PokerStars, available at TestPokerStars.com. The test client uses only play money, but knowing PokerStars it shouldn't be long before Zoom Poker is rolled out in their real-money primary software as well.
