    After playing zoom, ko, spin, tournaments, 6 plus, and power up, the best chances of winning are with zoom. Zoom moves you through the cards faster and with the fast fold feature you can dump your low cards quick with a micro penalty. Spin and Go has a gambling feature at the end without any player control/ Zoom gives you the most control.

      Classic no limit holdem MTTs are what i like most. I also like the progressive KO type. I like to play long tournaments so that you can focus and play your best game. That's why hyper turbo and spin and go is something that i don't like. Short deck is also something which i don't like.

          Hi there, currently I play ‘no limit Hold’em’ micro stakes cash tables and micro stakes spin and go’s. Just for fun really although I also consider it sort of practice - I can assess my play easier without fear of losing money.
          That being said my favourite format is undoubtedly mtt or multi tables sit and go’s. something about closing in on a final table gives me buzz like no other!

            I'm not sure if Progressive Knockout tournament is a format but i love it, i love to play NL Hold'em knockout tournaments cause is a way to keep it up always exciting, players do risk most so they can knock other players and get the bounty reward so newbies like me will always be going all in all the time and keeping these tables funny. despite of the fact that i only get micro buy-ins there is where the most fun is cause of the ammount of enrolled players )), hope i can win this one.

              What's currently your favourite format on PokerStars and why? Which game type do you play the most?

              Subconsciously and for excitement & I love Phil Hellmuth I like to play NLHE MTT's but I used to play 9 man and 45 man SNG and that s how I built my bankroll slow and steady

              I say subconsciously as , as the WSOP is a NLHE MTT I guess that is my end game aim...I actually make more per hour in small cash games but dont enjoy cash games so in a way im not in it f r the money its the excitment then again if you win the WSOP or a big MTT it is life changing money but thats the long term aim

              I do like the progressive tournaments they are too exciting haha but not turbo games and not really 6 handed at the moment so its full ring all you can eat baby

              Going back to the SNG i got upto 4 tabling $3.30 and some $5.50 but now im back down to 55c MTT in the main have tried couple of $1.10 so small sample size and didnt win anything

              Ive been learning mainly albeit slowly and now keep records to see when to move up etc

              I tend to only play 1 table though so I need to work on improving so I can add an extra table this is something I find very difficult but in the past 3 to 6 months Im studying more and more had health issues which disrupts the rythmm of learning and playing of course but thats just an extra challenge

              Longer term befre adding turbos I plan on adding 6 max or rebuy tournamentsits always good to plan ahead

                NLHE is my favorite format because it is the first game I learned and have played the most.

                I used to watch all the poker shows on TV years ago and learned how to play through that.

                The format I play the most is Spin and Go because it is fast paced and lots of fun.

                  Nhle for life but I am a sucker for timed tourneys as well as super progressive ko and bounty builders


                  • #10
                    I like to play ZOOM. It is continuous poker playing. No waiting for hands to complete if you fold.
                    Folding basically means give me a new deal of cards and on to the next bet.

                      I have two favourite formats I play - Max Hold'em or regular Hold'em Spin and Go's for a quick scoop or lose (I do not go throwing furniture around when losing, cause losing is part of the game after all). And KO tournaments. I love KO tourneys because I love the thrill of knocking out another player


                      • #12
                        I've been playing zoom lately almost always doubling up then switch to sit and goes for more profit but, as for spin and go's it's abit too fast for my standards also when I start playing tournaments in a bad or wrong mindset my income significantly decreases wow

                          I like the tournaments, play money, as I am a new player.

                          The KO bonus tourneys add an extra kick to them, but the sit-down ones often end up as an all-in fest.

                          Impatience led me to playing the 250K entry rather than waiting for the 50K, and then rebought when knocked out quickly.

                          500K in chips blown in less than 20 minutes!

                          Lesson learned (should have read bankroll management)!

                              Regards to all . Ever since I started my online poker career, I've been playing at PokerStars. And love at first sight was created with BountyBuilders and PKOs. I still play micro and low. I had some great results and final tables. I like PKO hyper and turbo best. I also don't run from ZOOM pko It's nice when you get paid without even finishing the tournament. Good luck to everyone at the tables
