Full Tilt Poker was for a long time at the pinnacle of online poker rooms, that is until what has been named "Black Friday" a day where US Dept of Justice closed the site to the players of America. The story behind this and since its re-launch in 2012 is a long one and this is not the place for it. As for the site in its current state, Full Tilt Poker is once again at the top of the internet poker room scale, offering multiple cash game variants, playing limits and is backed by one of the best poker software systems available. Now backed by Pokerstars it is unfortunate that the site does not accept players from the US. Consistently ranking in the top 3 for player traffic, Full Tilt deserved to be considered as a place to play online. Offering a unique format of what they call "Rush" poker which basically mixes the tables and players each and every hand, When you play Rush Poker, you'll face a different table of players every hand you play. As soon as you fold your hand, you'll be moved to another table for your next hand. With the ease of multi-tabling and even the ability to multi-tournament, Full Tilt is potentially one of few poker sites that offers a complete package. Originally hosting a huge sponsor list of professional players, the advent of Black Friday has seen now Gus Hansen and Viktor Bloom be the only recognized pro players affiliated with the site.
With an incredible amount of traffic coming through Full Tilt Poker, the range and diversity of players that you can face offers a great challenge. What this also means is that there are soft players playing throughout the different levels. Overall the quality of player is above average and the game can be challenging, with this in mind Full Tilt Poker is a definite option for you.
