Recently I started a weekly column on poker and this continues our once a week look at a game that I have played for over 30 years. I still remember my father going through all the different hands with me after Christmas lunch. One of my favourite sites was launched in 2004 and Full Tilt Poker continues to showcase its ambition through massive growth and a reputation as one of today’s market leaders. Adding to its prestige is Team Full Tilt, a group comprised of more than a dozen poker legends, including Howard Lederer, Chris Ferguson, Allen Cunningham, Phil Ivey, John Juanda, Mike Matusow, Clonie Gowen, Jennifer Harman and Erik Seidel.
These sponsored pros can be found playing at all limits in all variations across Full Tilt, and are also available for real-time chat at the tables. Anyone good enough to win Full Tilt Poker satellites for entry to the biggest live poker tournaments will also be able to play the pros live.
Full Tilt Poker
At Full Tilt Poker there is action to be found at any poker game and at any limit. You’ll very often find me at the limit hold’em heads up tables. The site was the first poker room in the business to offer ultra high-stakes games, attracting some of the absolute best players in the world. The high-stakes player can often find monster action filled with the best in the world, playing for pots of hundreds of thousands of pounds.
The games offered at Full Tilt Poker include Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud, Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo, Five-Card Draw, Razz and various mixed games. The games vary between No-Limit, Pot-Limit and Fixed-Limit. Full-table games, shorthanded and heads-up tables are all available.
Full Tilt Poker is also one of few sites offering mixed games such as H.O.R.S.E., H.A. and H.O.S.E. in both cash games and tournaments, making the game variation some of the most extensive and impressive online.
The poker room’s software is unique, boasts some very innovative functions, is very stable and features excellent graphics; indeed, it is one of the best in the industry. The functions are easy to use and the points shop is also excellent, offering players all sorts of cool merchandise that can be acquired with their Full Tilt Poker points. The graphics are innovative, with cartoon-style avatars, and the software offers different table types with optional backgrounds.
Overall, the traffic volume is in the very top segment of the industry. Real-money player statistics as of October 2008 show 10,500 ring-game players at peak hours, and 70,000 tournament players at peak hours.
Support response time and quality are both very good at Full Tilt Poker, and e-mails are often answered almost immediately. Some support lag has been known to occur at times, however, due to the high influx of players or during a large software update.
Full Tilt Poker is backed and owned by some of the biggest names in the business and has no reported issues. You can use eCheck, Visa, MasterCard, Neteller, Moneybookers, InstaDebit, ClickandBuy, cash transfer and Click2Pay and withdraw by Visa, Click2Pay, Moneybookers, InstaDebit, ClickandBuy and cheque.
That’s it on the poker front for another week. Good luck to you as always. See you at the tables soon.
