Pokerstars just released "Zoom". I'm quite sure there are other rooms now releasing their own versions of this format (open-market?), so I wouldn't be suprised if almost all major sites and networks created some type of quick-seat change offering. I got this from Pokerstars: "...you will be randomly seated with a set of players from your chosen game. ...

I am not in touch with the state of 200NL online since Black Friday, so you may have to adjust my analysis for those games at this stack depth. Preflop and flop are fine.

It's not a new idea, FullTilt had it too for a long time and I know I played on it quite intensively. It was called Rush Poker Mode if I remember correctly. The upside is, like you noticed, the very high number of hands per hour. Numbers like 300 hands / hour are not uncommon. The downside however is that you go against a massive field (1000 players ...
