Rush Poker* Tournaments

Steps Tournaments

Available exclusively at Full Tilt Poker, enter a Rush Poker* Tournament to experience the world’s fastest poker tournament. Unlike a standard tournament, when you play a Rush Poker* Tournament you’ll join a large player pool and face a different table of opponents every hand you play. When you fold your hand, you’ll immediately be moved to a new table for your next hand.

As players are eliminated from the tournament, tables will become short-handed to ensure that the pace of game play does not slow down. When the final table of the tournament is reached, the tournament will switch to the “standard” tournament mode and hands will be played one at a time until the tournament is complete.

Enter Full Tilt Poker’s Steps Tournaments and climb your way to the top.

Full Tilt Poker’s Steps Tournaments give players the chance to win entry to larger buy-in tournaments – and claim shares of bigger prize pools – by working their way up the steps of a progressive series of tournaments. Steps Tournaments start with lower buy-ins and play like regular tournaments, except that players compete for Tournament Tickets to the next Step in the tournament series. Even if you don’t advance to the next step, Steps Tournaments also award seats at the same level or a lower level. Finish well and you’ll stay alive, with another chance to climb to the top.

Ante Games

Rush Poker*

Enjoy more action and bigger pots with our new Pot-Limit and No-Limit ante ring games. Ante games are played the same way as regular ring games, but with an added incentive - each player pays an ante before the hole cards are dealt to increase the pot. Look for the ante icon in the Full Tilt Poker ring-game lobbies.

Shallow Tables

Deep Stack Tables

Are you looking to improve your skills with a shallow chip stack? Join the ring-game action at our new Shallow Tables. You can sit down at a Shallow Table for anywhere from 20 to 40 big blinds. Shallow Tables are available in any of our ring game lobbies.

Looking for some deep stack ring-game action? We’ve upped the minimum buy-in at our Deep Stack Tables to 75 big blinds so you can build some truly huge pots. The maximum buy-in for Deep Stack Tables remains at 200 big blinds. Deep Stack Tables are available in any of our ring game lobbies.


Speed Tables

Double Stack Tournaments

Do you have a need for speed? Are you tired of players who take forever to pull the trigger? Then we've got the perfect game for you. We've super-charged some of our ring games, cutting response timeouts in half, auto-posting blinds, and removing all animation. Now, you can play poker the way you like: fast. Look for these games with the word (Speed) next to them in the game window.

Do you want more action for your tournament dollar? Then, try our new Double Stack Tournaments where we start you off with 3,000 chips. Just browse through the games in our Tournament window and read the descriptions to find these Double Stack tourneys.


Cap Games

Four Player Heads-Up Shootout Sit & Go Tournaments

If you enjoy playing No-Limit and Pot-Limit games, but prefer not to risk all of your chips in a single hand, you're going to love Full Tilt Poker's new Cap Games.

Hands are played exactly the same as in regular No-Limit and Pot-Limit games until the cap is reached. Once the betting cap is reached, all players left in the hand will be considered all-in. Now when you get caught betting that flush draw, you will still get a chance to catch as the betting might be capped.

To join the action, look for games with the word (CAP NL) or (CAP PL) next to them in the game lobby. And, for even faster-paced play, look for our Cap Speed tables (Cap Speed) where players have to make even faster decisions and blinds are auto-posted.

It's winner-takes-all in our new Heads-Up Shootout Sit & Go tournaments. Four players are spilt into two heads-up matches, and each first-round winner will square off at the final table. Whoever wins that match, scoops the entire prize pool. Reserve your place early, because these games will definitely fill up quickly.


Rebuy Tournaments

Turbo Sit & Gos and Multi-Table Tournaments

There are few feelings worse in poker than busting out of a tournament, which is why we're giving you a way to keep on playing even if you've lost your entire chip stack.

Our new rebuy tournaments let you buy back into a tournament if your chip stack falls below your starting level - even if you go completely broke at the table. Depending on the tournament, you can even rebuy more than once.

We've turned up the heat in our Sit & Gos and multi-table tournaments. These new games are designed to keep the pressure on players, increasing the blinds in half the time. That means, in the Sit & Gos, blinds go up every three minutes instead of every six. In multi-table tournaments, the blinds go up every five minutes instead of every ten. These games are easy to find - just look for the games with the word (Turbo) next to them in the game window.
