What happened to NL5 Zoom? I am a semi-regular there, but today I witnessed a very high amount of 3Beting preflop. Like 50% of my opens were 3Bet, no matter what position I opened from. Raised by Buttons, by BigBlinds WAY more often than before. And often by cards they insta-folded to a 4Bet.
Did I miss a class where they talked about 3Bet stealing pots preflop?

Not sure but I noticed this a little as well. I have noticed also that there are more Gold/Platinum/Supernova players picking about at 5/10NL these days. Not sure if some of them are gravitating across from regular tables and using the lower stakes to experiment.

Yeah, it seems to be happening more.

I noticed it too. Personally I like it. I am a fairly aggressive player and the last couple of days at 10NL I am getting much more value from my premium hands. It also allows for much more room to play with some more speculative openers.

I have had a couple of weird ones where people have been calling my 4 bets with 75o and 89o etc. No complaints on that front as have taken a stack or two however it does seam like the some people have got the idea of 3 and 4 bets at the lower stakes but are doing weird things with that knowledge.
