PokerStars shocks Players by turning All High Stakes Games into Zoom Format

PokerStars recently shocked their players by making huge changes to their high stakes games. Starting January 1st, 2014, all NL Hold’em and PL Omaha tables at $50/$100 stakes and up will be changed to Zoom format only. The reason why this is such a shock is because, behind Full Tilt, PokerStars boasts the second largest high stakes community. However, the removal of regular nosebleeds tables is likely to push even more players to Full Tilt. So why drastically alter your high stakes games when they are still popular? Well for starters, PokerStars doesn’t mind if high rollers go to Full …

Since the advent of the internet, spending too much time online has been a …
