The best players in the world have come together to form Full Tilt Poker. The team comprises:
| Phil Ivey |
Each of the players operate under their real names and can be found playing an average of 10 hours a week exclusively at Full Tilt Poker. They are easily identified by the red tag attaching to the room and are as fascinating to watch as they are to play against. They play at all levels, including the free play area and are open to questions. If anyone doubted their credentials - at the 2005 WSOP these players walked away with $3.6m or 10% of the total prize pool, but in number they only represented 2% of the field. As the company says Play, Chat, and Learn from the Pros.
Texas Holdem Poker in all its variants is complemented by Omaha, Stud and Razz. Tournament choice is good and set to meet all ranges of pockets with the minimum WSOP qualifying buyin set at $4 (+40c). $400,000 in guaranteed tournaments are offered each week. In addition the company awards its top players by automatically entering them into one of three monthly Freeroll tournaments with a combined prize pool of $50,000.
Full Tilt have taken a novel approach to the site visuals. Each player can choose from a range of Avatars to represent them at the table (option to switch these off if you dont like them) and the room background can be changed to any one of a number of options including the Las Vegas Skyline, a Beach Scene, Jungle backdrop to name a few. This is a new room launched in 2004 so is a secure interface that is geared to enhance and personalise the online poker experience.
A great range of poker tables and good player numbers make a visit here a lively occasion. For newcomers there are Free Play options, and low end tables that cost as little as 5c/10c in both Limit, and No Limit format. The high end goes all the way to $200/$400 should your pocket allow. A typical evening sees over 5000 players at the tables so a game is guaranteed at any level.
Full Tilt Poker is an excellent idea and will become a serious contender to the established major online poker rooms. It has the right approach to marketing and the exclusive relationship with 27 of the best players on the planet make it an engaging play. Where else outside of Las Vegas could you claim you beat Phil Ivey today (if indeed you got lucky and did take some money from him). We like the concept and rate the room highly.
