  1. hey rosh just wondering if your playing much zoom and what u think of it because not many people are talking about it

  2. Im playing a little everyday but as the HEM1 update is not fully working yet I am playing HUDless only at NL25.

    The tables on zoom seem pretty good and I am winning even tho only a small amount. People are saying that whales and fish are playing tighter as they can see more hands. When the have to wait then they play Q3o etc

    Once I get the HUD and see how people are playing in terms of ranges I can say a bit more.

  3. dude nl25 and nl50 zoom is insane, people randomly klicking buttons and calling down with pocket pairs on Highcard boards, i played a lot of hands there since there only where NL100 until yesterday.

  4. Looks like I will have to give higher levels a go

  5. you should invest in HM2 :)

  6. I was one of the beta testers for HEM2 but I had so many problems with it crashing that I decided to only get when all the problems are solved and when I have a more powerful machine

  7. the problems are solved, my HM2 didnt crashed over a month. but... new machine is a good idea :P

  8. Hey mate, sweet blog. Definitely one of the more detailed / interesting ones I have read :)

    I was looking at examples of multi tabling monitor set ups on youtube, and randomly stumbled across your vid which lead me here.

    Keep up the good work, and I'll be sure to read it!
