Pokerstars 50nl zoom vs 50nl reg (most profitable?)

-1
So with all the tableselecting, waitlists and looking for good tables while playing. Are the regular tables still more profitable then the zoom pool? At the zoom tables all you have to do is focus on the hands you are playing and you will come acros a weak player now and then, but on the regular tables there are just a ton of regs fighting against each other to find the best tables with the weak players, and leave as soon as they bust or go away. Because of this you are just forced to do the same and you can not focus 100% on youre game and volume with all the table selecting and tables breaking? What do you guys think about this?

If one thing was much better than the other everybody would do it, so personally I think it is personal preference and I wouldn't worry too much about it.

I like this advice a lot :D

I also used to do both pre black friday. If I wanted a quick session, I'd play rush (example, wife getting ready to head out to dinner, have time for a quick 30-45 minute session, bam, rush it is). If I was sitting down for 3+ hours (like a sunday and I was going to also play a few mtts), I'd play normal.

Nothing wrong with doing both depending on your attitude/personality of the day.
I wanted to also add, I think different people are more +EV in different games. So player A might have a 2 bb/100 winrate in zoom and 1.5 bb/100 winrate in normal. While player B might have a 1.5 bb/100 winrate in zoom and 2 bb/100 winrate in normal.

I've seen that a LOT over the years with my students.

(remember, you need a pretty LARGE sample size for that small of a difference to be meaningful...a VERY VERY VERY large sample size)
