While playing online poker at Full Tilt, you may have noticed certain players have little symbols under their screen name. Have you ever wondered what the heck they mean? Then pay attention because we are going to clue you in!
When you play at Full Tilt Poker you will automatically earn ‘Badges’ that tell your opponents the accomplishments you have achieved on Full Tilt. There are four Full Tilt Poker Player Achievement Badges that you can earn every month by completing challenges while playing in your favorite games. You will then have the option of displaying the Badges by your avatar to do some bragging, or you can choose to keep them hidden if you don’t want to scare away your opponents! You won’t have to guess anymore as to what those little icons mean - here is the lowdown on the Full Tilt Poker Achievement Badges.
The Full Tilt Poker Academy Badge:

Iron Man Challenge Badge
When you take on the Iron Man Challenge each month, you can earn special prizes and FreeRoll entries. There are four Iron Man status levels in a given month which can be achieved by accumulating Full Tilt Points in any cash buy-in games and tournaments. Every month, depending on how much you play and how many points you earn, you can reach one of the four Iron Man status levels; Bronze, Silver, Gold or Iron for which you will receive an Iron Man Challenge Badge and Iron Man Medals. The Medals can be redeemed in the Iron Man Store to purchase Full Tilt Points, Tournament Tickets and cash bonuses.

True Poker Player Badge:
This one is simple to get; just play in any Full Tilt Poker cash buy-in ring game, tournament or Sit n Go and you get a True Poker Player Badge. Plus you will be earning Full Tilt Points for your Iron Man Challenge Badge!
Rush Poker Badge:
All you have to do here is play in the fastest poker game on the planet – Rush Poker and accumulate 50 Full Tilt Points in one month and you will claim your Rush Poker Badge! Not only will you have a cool ‘R’ Badge on your avatar, but those points will also add to your overall points total to qualify for Iron Man status, so you are working on two Badges at once!
Once you’ve earned all of your Badges, you can choose to display them on your avatar by going to the Full Tilt Lobby and clicking on ‘Options’ in the top navigation bar.
