This topic was disscused on last weeks pokercast with Steve D, he said they will be rolling it out in the future but didn't give exact dates. I think it would help generate some traffic at the HU tables and I would give it a go if the tables were rolled out at micro levels. HU play puts you in lots of marginal spots forces you to think more about decisions, this can only be a good thing for ones game imo.

HU is extremely reads based. It's almost impossible to have a standard line against villains, and for this reason I think zoom HU would be awkward.

The whole point of zoom is to skip hands you down want to play. In HU, you are playing a high % of hands anyway, so it kinda of defeats the purpose.

Had to give it a shot
Minimum buy in is $50 for the CAP game. 25/50
304 hands later I left with $63.00 was down to less than $20 at one stage.
Lots of Fun

Yap, played 101 hands at 50NL CAP and walked away with $21.39 profit.

But I prefer the 6-man Zoom

I'll probably not play it much to be honest.

Think I need to be playing the game a bit more before I feel comfortable with heads-up games. Much more comfortable with 9 man games.

I gave the 5/10 play chip game a go. Felt a bit strange having my opponent's stack size changing every hand. Soon got used to it and left with a profit.

Not rolled to play 25c/50c but would play Zoom Head's Up if I could.
