  • Zoom ... Variance or bad for learning ?

    Last month i decided to play PSO legaue at least twice a day. It all worked good till last third of month. Gathered 2160 points with rank in first 400 (200+). Beside that i played little of zoom, micro limits and begin to gather VPPs like never before. With little help of Bing Bang tournament i managed to get my BR from 17$ to 33$ and with help of zoom to 49.95 playing just 1 table...
    I gathered 100VPPs in no time and then decided to grind 50 more for premier league

    And then it all went down .

    My BR is at 37$, i suck at PSO tournaments,i have 150+ VPPs and cant even make it to first brake of PSO tournament (was easy before)...I know my game has changed, is zoom the key factor .
    Is it just variance or zoom can realy mess up your play at sngs, tournaments ?

    Anyway im not giving up even i have lost over 160points in last week ...

    Wish me luck, lol .

        You don't say what level zoom you're playing. Anything over 2nl is going to be so completely different from the OSL that you do have to change your game back for the tourneys. Read the strategy threads and blogs before you play the OSL so you get your head right, and don't try to play zoom and any tourney at the same time. With your start you should be still in with a shot at making the PSL. Good Luck umbup:
