I have kept track the last 3 days, 53 games of $7.00 Zoom 52 of them were for $14.00 & 1 game for $21.00 Lets see 3 to 1 odds against not bad. BUT 52 games x $7.00 = $364.00 in the slush fund minus 10% for Poker Stars to run the game for us = 53 x 10% of $21.00 = $2.10 x 53 games = $111.30 So $364.00 - $111.30=$252.70  So why should we continue to play this game? Is there skill required, most certainly. So what is the attraction to the game? Lets say Poker Stars were to start a new tournament buy in $25.00 payout no gaurantee couldd be any were from $1.00 to $50,000,000.00 once we reach the top 5% left we spin a whell to find out what the payout is? How many of you would play a game of chance were 1rst place could pay be as high as $10,000,000.00 that to me is the intrigue of Zoom
