Poker is an incredible game, easily one of the most popular in the world. But if you do it right, you’ll be folding a lot. Folding, and waiting. Most of the time, you’ll be mucking your cards preflop when you play any of the games at Bodog Poker: Texas Hold’em, Omaha or Omaha Hi/Lo. Then you’ll have to wait until the hand is over before you get another chance at taking down a pot.

Or you could play Zone Poker instead. This format has revolutionized the way people play poker, allowing you to get in more hands with less waiting around. With Zone Poker, once you fold, you’re transported instantly to another table and dealt a fresh set of cards. Instead of seeing around 100 hands per hour, you’ll get to play twice, maybe three times as many hands in the same amount of time. Some people exclusively play Zone Poker instead of the regular cash tables at Bodog – that’s how great poker can be when you get in the Zone.

 

Great Poker, Less Filling

Volume isn’t the only reason you should play Zone Poker. Since each table brings a new group of opponents, your anonymity is protected even more than when you play at Bodog’s anonymous cash tables. If you like to bluff more than average, or if you prefer to play premium hands only, your opponents won’t have enough time to figure you out and adjust. You’ve already moved on to the next table.

At the same time, if you play a more balanced style, Zone Poker should be exactly what you’re looking for. When you use an optimal ratio of bluffs at the poker table, your opponents can’t do any better than break even against you in the long run, no matter what style they play. You’ll encounter all different kinds of players in Zone Poker – TAGs, LAGs, nits, weak-tight, maniacs, the whole enchilada – and you’ll be prepared to deal with them.

Whether you’re playing balanced or exploitatively, Zone Poker means you can worry less about adjusting your style, freeing up mental energy to play many more hands per hour. You can even play two Zone tables at the same time if you really want to crank up the volume. More hands means more money and more fun, too, as long as you don’t go too crazy and overwhelm yourself. If you haven’t already, give Zone Poker a try, and you’ll see why life in the fast lane is so popular.
