1/20/10 – Still chasing its larger rival Pokerstars, the world's second biggest online poker provider, Full Tilt Poker, has continued its innovative range of enhancements by launching Rush Poker this week.
Rush Poker is a high-speed poker experience, designed to minimise wait time between hands and keep players in action at all times. In a Rush Poker game, players are dealt up to four times more hands per hour than in standard ring-game play.
"Rush Poker is the greatest innovation in online poker since poker started on the Internet," boasted 2000 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion and Team Full Tilt member Chris Ferguson this week. "Rush Poker is an amazingly fast-paced game. You always have a decision to make; you're never waiting for other players to finish the hand." Play Rush Poker Now.
Unlike standard ring games, where players join one table and face the same opponents every hand, Rush Poker games have a large player pool spread across multiple tables. When a player folds their hand, they'll immediately be moved to another table with different opponents for the next hand, even if the current hand is still in progress.
In order to speed up the game even more, Rush Poker games feature a Quick Fold button at the table which allows players to fold their hand before it's their turn to act.
