Petition: Zoom stacks overhaul

I want to petition to have a change in how the zoom stacks are handled.

Zoom is open season for 40BB stacks to hit and run all day long. Poker is not meant for preflop hand selection niches to make money and kill action. If you leave a table, you should have to rejoin your previous stacks from the past 2 hours, starting with the largest stack first. And right now you only get 30 minutes to play your previous stacks. That is way too short. You should be able to make a meal and come back and play.

So you wanna end ratholing in Zoom and increase timer to 2hrs? Ambitious, but I can't say I disagree.

Re: Petition: Zoom stacks overhaul

One problem from grinding zoom is losing time bank

so often have to leave, and then re join to have a fresh one

stars should implement a "reset" button , so that you dont miss hands, etc

probably wrong place for that comment but whatever

Re: Petition: Zoom stacks overhaul

Signed from me as well ofc.. I also struggle with the timebank issue so that would be something I also want to fix. (In fact, there's times when I'm deep 2-tabling but need to close a table to open a new one @ 100bb for timebank issues even though I'd rather play deep.)

Re: Petition: Zoom stacks overhaul

You should have the option to come back at either your maximum stack size or the maximum buyin if you happen to be over it. If you are playing 25/50 and leave with a stack of $13.5K you should have the option of coming back at 13.5K or $5K
