Full Tilt Poker is one of the most popular online poker room, and safest poker sites out there. And with the multitude of players joining every day, variations of games available, and easy to use interface, it’s no wonder.
Several professional poker players can be found playing the tables, both on the nail biting high stakes tables – where it’s not uncommon to see tens of thousands of dollars in the pot in one hand – and on the micro stakes tables making five cent bets.
With minimum bets ranging from $0.01 to $1,000.00, there is a game for poker players of any skill level.
Poker Games Available
Several different poker games are available, at all levels of play, including Texas Hold-em, (the most popular of poker genre games) Omaha, Omaha hi-lo, Razz, 7-card Stud, and 7-card stud hi-lo. For those who enjoy playing all of these games and like to mix it up, Full Tilt Poker offers mixed games such as HORSE, (H-Hold-em, O-Omaha hi-lo, R-Razz, E-Stud hi-lo) or 7-game, which incorporates all of the available games on a single table.
As well as the multiple types of games available to play, Full Tilt Poker also offers multiple formats in which to play them.
Also known as “ring games”, cash games are exactly what they sound like. You sit at a table with a specified amount of money, and make your bets in dollar values.
Sit and Gos
Sit and Go games are just small poker tournaments. The difference is that Sit and Go games have a set number of players, a set prize pool, and the game doesn’t start until the specified number of players have registered. You “buy in” for a specific amount of money and each player is given an equal amount of chips to start with. They range in size from 120 players to a single table Sit and Go.
Full Tilt Poker offers a number of tournaments. Tournaments have a specific starting time, which is specified when the tournament is posted. Players have until that starting time to register for the tournament, though there is usually a “grace period” in which late registration is allowed. The size of the prize pool is relevant to the number of players that have registered.
Perfect for the impatient poker player – rush poker is Full Tilt Poker’s newest game format. In rush poker you don’t have to wait until everybody else on the table has finished playing to start your next hand. Once you have folded you are immediately transferred to another table, and a new hand begins.
