"Full Rush" tables at Full Tilt Poker

It would be hard to imagine that anyone who plays online that has not heard about “Full Rush” poker being played at FullTiltPoker.Com, an affiliate site of mine.

The concept is very simple. You can “quick fold” any hand when you are not the big blind and be moved to another table and get dealt a fresh hand. If you are the big blind, you can “quick fold” as soon as you are raised. You can also advance click a fold option selection, which is helpful if you are playing multiple tables.

The basic idea of the quick fold is to allow you to see more playable hands while folding away the junk … unless of course you crave the action and like playing position poker against the unsuspecting.

There are opportunities to steal blinds if you are the first raiser in the pot, say from middle position.  The blinds may defend button and cut-off raises so you cannot always count on the blinds folding to a pre-flop raise.

There are opportunities to defend blinds with air .. if you re-raise instead of flat calling and then make a pot size bet, the player trying to steal the blinds from the button or cut-off position will usually fold, although not always.

Play the Full Rush poker tables at FTP is a way you build your bankroll and experience action the likes of which you have not seen before. It is also a easy way to lose your bankroll when you make bad decisions. You are also going to run into maniacs and you will have worse hands hold up and beat your good hands.

Be prepared for a roller coaster ride as you end up having to play all styles of players and if you are unable to adapt, you will be losing out on a chance to chip up.

Where do I stand today … I am down about $25, but am now getting some of that back as I have adapted to the many styles of play needed to master these tables. A word of advice: If you lose more than two buy-ins, give it up for a while; if you are winning, keep playing until you start to lose your edge. Because of the increased number of hands you play, you will find that you might to lose your ability to concentrate after a couple thousand hands and that your decisions are not the best. So keep that in mind.

If you have not tried Full Rush poker tables and are a FTP member, give it a try. If you are not an FTP member,  click on one of the FullTiltPoker.Com links and join me at the tables. Look for StevieTrips. But you might have to look quickly as I jump from table to table.

Do you play online poker? Have you played at FullTiltPoker.Com? Have you tried playing at the “Full Rush” table? What were your results?

A “Full Rush” table tip! If you want to see how hands play out at the table you are currently on, click the “Sit out” option before folding. This way, you will be able to see the action at the table. This is helpful when you want to find out what someone was playing when they went all-in and were called.  I once saw an 83 suited go all in against a K8 suited. A three hit the board and the “83” won. These players wagered over $20 each on what was a coin flip.
