PokerStars ready to roll out new Zoom Poker product
PokerStars has confirmed to be approaching a beta launch of its new speed poker product, set to be named "Zoom Poker". The new poker variation will hit the first computer screens already at the end of February or beginning of March.
Following months of heavy rumors, PokerStars has confirmed to be ready to roll out the first beta versions of a new speed poker product called "Zoom Poker".

PokerStars confirmed with Pokerfuse.com today that the new product is set to reach the first players already "at the end of February or the beginning of March."

Zoom Poker will be PokerStars' pendant to the popular Rush Poker ring games, which were initially launched by Full Tilt Poker in 2010.

The concept allows players to fold a hand and be removed to a new table with new opponents immediately, paving the way for a fast-paced version of the game with a high volume of hands and plenty of action.

Rush Poker quickly gathered a big following, and was one of the Full Tilt Poker's most popular products up until the site shut down its operations in June last year.

Widespread speculations and industry rumors this fall suggested that PokerStars was working on a similar product, after it became apparent that there were no patent issues surrounding the concept as it had otherwise been suggested by Full Tilt.

PokerStars allegedly first considered naming the new product "Blitz Poker", but this has reportedly been canned in favor of the new name "Zoom".

There is still no definite date for the first beta launch, but with the first indicators pointing to a release within roughly one month, the the product is seemingly in its advanced stages.

I am a bit surprised that they did not release something like this a little sooner. This is going to be a huge hit for PS. I was never a big fan of Rush Poker though. You could lose a lot of money very quickly when it was available.

Apparently full tilt poker had a patent pending for rush poker, it was a very good format to play, i enjoyed it occasionally when full tilt was still around, i think it will surely add to the rake collected by poker stars, many millions of dollars more im sure. Poker stars is one huge cash generating machine that never stops. If they had continued to operate in the usa market its owners isai sheinberg could have really made a run at the top of the forbes list, but that wasnt meant to be for them, anyways a new software format for us in zoom poker, heres to good times in online poker.
