Full Tilt Poker Room Review

Published March 11, 2010 - RSS/XML Feed RSS
Full Tilt Poker was launched in 2004 and has quickly become the second largest online poker room. Beaten to the top-spot only by Pokerstars.com. Full Tilt's success has largely been helped by the involvement of some of poker's top professionals such as Phil Ivey, Howard Lederer, Chris Ferguson and Mike Matusow.

Full Tilt's colorful graphics, huge traffic and the welcoming of US poker players make it stand out from the crowd and continue to grow into one of the biggest poker rooms on the internet.


Full Tilt Poker Games
 
Full Tilt offer a wide selection of cash games and tournaments, as well as providing play money tables for practice and fun. All major types of poker are offered such as, Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Razz, Stud and their new game 'Rush Poker'.
 
Rush Poker is an extremely fast paced poker game, designed to minimize the wait between hands. This is possible by moving players between tables depending on which tables finish their hands at the same time. Each hand you play may be against different opponents at a different table.

As well as ring games, Full Tilt Poker offers a range of quality tournaments. Buy-ins can range from as little as $1 all the way up to $2,500. Due to Full Tilt's enormous player base, tournaments are not sparse and you should always be able to find tournament to suit your needs any time of the day or night.
 
Full Tilt Poker Traffic & Competition
 
Full Tilt Poker has the second largest player base out of all the online poker rooms. You can expect traffic to reach over 100,000 players during peak times, giving you the option to sit at one of over 30,000 tables.
 
Most of Full Tilt's traffic, like most online poker rooms, is directed towards the Texas Hold'em tables. However, due to the sheer size of Full Tilt, you should be able to find a table at the Omaha, Stud and Razz tables at most stakes even during off-peak times.
 
Competition varies at Full Tilt. The lower-mid stakes contain a lot of week players and the ability to make notes on players makes it that bit easier to find them after already playing against them once. Competition at the mid-high stakes tables gets much harder and if you climb high enough you will be up against some of the world's best, such as Phil Ivey and Howard Lederer.

Full Tilt Poker Bonus
 
Full Tilt offers new players a welcome bonus of 100% of their first deposit up to $600 when using the Full Tilt Referral. The Full Tilt Poker bonus is only available to players who do not currently have a Full Tilt account. However, Full Tilt do offer their existing players regular reload bonuses. Players will be notified of these via email when they become available.
 
The Full Tilt Poker bonus is released in $20 increments or 10% of the bonus amount - whichever is smaller. Each installment of your Full Tilt bonus will be paid directly into your player account once the required number of FPP (Frequent Player Points) have been earned.
 
For every 1 FPP you earn, $0.06 of your bonus will be released. How to earn Full Tilt Points is explained below.
 
Full Tilt FPP's (Frequent Player Points)
 
Full Tilt points are earned by playing in any raked real-money hand whether it is ring-games, tournaments or sit-n-go's. Full Tilt points can be used to buy various items in the Full Tilt Store. Items include: DVD's, TV's, laptops, iPods, books and entries to exclusive Full Tilt Poker tournaments where cash prizes and entries to satellite tournaments can be won.
 
Below is a brief explanation on how Full Tilt Points are earned.
 
Ring Games - For every $1 that is taken in rake, each player that is dealt into the hand will receive 1 FFP. Points are also awarded on a fractional basis, meaning that if $1.5 is raked, each player who is involved in the hand will receive 1.5 points.
 
Tournaments & Sit-N-Go's - For every $1 paid in tournament fees, 7 points are earned. For example, if you enter a $50 tournament which has a $5 fee, you will receive 35 Full Tilt points (7x5).
