When Rush Poker was introduced to the poker world, it was a whirlwind experience and has continued to attract players to the games. The speed poker games offered players quick action without having to play ten tables. And now, only a few months after Rush Poker proved to be a huge success, Full Tilt Poker launched Rush Poker Tournaments.
Sometimes, committing to a tournament requires so many hours that many players choose not to compete. For most MTT’s, if a player intends to do well, they must have the time to play it through. But with Rush Poker Tournaments on Full Tilt Poker, the length of time required is lessened quite a bit. It is played in a “rush,” ya know.
Rush Poker Tournaments allow players to enter a tournament as part of a large player pool, as all Rush events, and face a different table for every hand played. Fold the hand, immediately move to another table. When the tournament field thins to less than 30 players, short-handed tables go into effect to ensure that the game continues to move along quickly. It’s not until the final table that “standard” mode takes effect and the action plays out as any normal final table, one hand at a time.
In order to get started and participate in the biggest online poker phenomenon to hit the industry in years, it’s important to set up and fund an account. Download Full Tilt Poker and use bonus code “POKERWORKS” to get started. The code will allow you to get in on a 100% bonus on any deposit of up to $600, to be earned through regular site play.
Now that you’re on the site, go to the tournament section of the lobby and look for Rush Poker Tournaments with the black R symbol next to them. If you’re using the “standard view” for your screen, simply search Rush Poker Tournaments in the “advanced filters.” Select the tournament, the poker variation, and the buy-in, and then register for the event.
Once you’re in the tournament, the game will be set to “rush” mode and change tables after every hand. If you’d like to speed it up even more, click the “quick fold” button at the bottom of the table, and you don’t even have to wait for other players to act in order to have your hand folded. Blinds will be posted randomly for the first hand, and the blinds will then be assigned to players who have gone the longest without posting as the tournament plays on. Then, should you make the final table, as mentioned previously, “standard” mode will commence until the tournament concludes.
There is a warning about Rush Poker and Rush Poker Tournaments. They are addictive. Players are raving about the excitement from the speed of the events and how exhilarating they are to play. But if you like a little thrill with your online poker, go ahead. Give it a try! You’re up for the challenge, aren’t you?
