FastForward Poker Launched

PartyPoker launched their very own version of "fast-fold" poker when FastForward Poker entered beta in play money games recently. Soon FastFoward will be available in real money micro limits.

You'll look at a zillion or so hands in a day when you sit in a FastForward table. FastForward seats you in a player pool rather than a single table and you can hit the fold button as soon as you see your cards; you are then immediately moved to a new table to look at a new hand. Not to worry, no one at the table you just left will even know you are gone. Obviously, you can raise or call and proceed as normal with the hand if you’re interested in your hand.

Imagine how many PartyPoints you'll be able to rack up as you terrorize your opponents in this new speed format. Once you try FastForward poker, you won't want to go back to a single table format. Get ready for speed, get a seat, and check out FastForward today.

Marvin Rettenmaier Wins Back-to-Back WPT Titles

Almost as soon as Marvin Rettenmaier could say, "I'm now a PartyPoker sponsored pro," he won the WPT World Championship held at Bellagio in May.

Then "Mad" Marvin hit the next WPT event which was the final tournament of Season X and took down the WPT Merit Cyprus Classic without missing a beat. PartyPoker and Rettenmaier are both walking on cloud nine right now. PartyPoker has an established, young, German poker player flying under their banner setting records and Rettenmaier is the holder of a new back-to-back record by winning two World Poker Tour events in a row.

Get an inside view of the excitement that's going on at PartyPoker when you read about this WPT historic result.
