The Explosion Of Fast Fold Poker, Barry Carter at PokerStrategy

The Explosion Of Fast Fold Poker, Barry Carter at PokerStrategy | Poker & eGaming News | Scoop.it

It is completely understandable why everyone would want to jump on the fast fold poker bandwagon; Rush Poker was lots of fun and very popular, it increases the number of hands being played and therefore rake (and deposits), it protects against certain practices that harm depositing players like data mining sites and software, and it encourages people to play in short periods of time that they otherwise would not have chosen to play in.

Not only does this protect the new players, it also stops the better players from sitting out against each other. In fact, many players are suggesting that fast fold poker would also reignite the high stakes and heads-up tables; which are rife with these problems.

Likewise, fast fold poker limits, but certainly doesn't eliminate, the edge gained with tracking software. Although this means that serious players might consider their edge would be therefore lower in fast fold poker, in the long term the games would benefit, and become much softer, as recreational players would not get slaughtered as soon as they sat down.   

Another reason, other than the patent, why operators may have jumped onto fast fold poker now is the rise of mobile poker. 2012 really looks like the year for mobile poker, and PokerStars appear to be leading the way here, releasing Zoom and their mobile client almost alongside each other. Now Zoom is available for mobile, and it seems the two concepts were a marriage made in heaven.
