The poker world awoke to a brand-new software update on Full Tilt Poker yesterday that introduced a revolutionary new poker format to one of the world’s largest online poker sites. It’s called Rush Poker, and it already has exploded in popularity.In standard ring games, players are forced to compete against the same opponents and wait for the hand to conclude before receiving a new one. In Rush Poker, you can join a large pool of players spread out across multiple tables. The second you fold your hand, you are instantly moved to a new table, with new opponents and, more importantly, a new hand to play.“Rush Poker is the greatest innovation in online poker since poker started on the Internet,” said Team Full Tilt member Chris Ferguson . “Rush Poker is an amazingly fast-paced game. You always have a decision to make; you’re never waiting for other players to finish the hand.”Though the option to multi-table is still available, you may find it difficult to keep up with the action. Rush Poker allows players to see up to four times the amount of hands per hour than in a standard ring game. That is made possible by the new “Quick Fold” feature, which allows a player to fold their hand and move on to the next before it is even their turn to act.For example, if you are dealt 7-2 offsuit in the cutoff, you can click the quick fold button and instantly move to a new table and new hand. Meanwhile, your player avatar remains at the old table, waiting for its turn to fold.With all of the rapid movements within the game, you may be wondering how position at the table is determined. When you first enter the game, you’ll post the big blind for that hand. After that, the player who has gone the longest without posting will then take the big blind. The small blind and all other positions at the table are chosen at random from hand to hand.In addition, because these tables are constantly changing, they cannot be observed by third parties. This means that sites such as Table Ratings cannot currently scrape information and statistics from the game.

On Wednesday, Full Tilt rolled out $0.10/$0.25 pot-limit Omaha, as well.Though most have enjoyed the new poker format, there are those players who are more comfortable with a classic ring game. There have been some complaints concerning position at the table. Though it is random, it is not unheard of for a player to be given the small blind twice in a row or avoid the button for long stretches. Also, many players would like the software to allow them to see the conclusion of some hands in which they folded, hoping to see if they made the right decision in a multi-way pot.To watch a short tutorial on Rush Poker, click here .Card Player readers are eligible for deposit bonuses of up to $600.
