Review of RUSH POKER from Full Tilt Poker: most exciting thing to happen to cash games in YEARS!

Full Tilt Poker: real money or free play!

Like action? Play RUSH POKER! There is no better action cash game on the market, especially if you dislike multi-tabling because of monitor size issues, or you lack the manual dexterity to switch from one table to another to another.

In my opinion, Full Tilt was already the best live online poker site around and this feature makes it even better!

It takes some getting used to, but I predict that RUSH will become one of the most popular gaming styles on Full Tilt. I'd be surprised if other websites don't copy this idea.

How it works

Don't ask me how it WORKS works, but this is what you see when you play.

Each Rush Poker pool has up to 2,000 players. You join the pool like you'd join a tourney. Currently it's NL only, with tables from $0.05-0.10 to $0.50-1.

As soon as you sit down, you are "WHOOSHED" to a seat. In fact, you stay still while all the other seats rush off to the left of the screen and then rush back on from the right. It's quite hard to photograph, but I did my best!

WHOOSH! There go the seats off the left of the screen...

WHOOSH! More opponents fly in from the right to join your table.

Each WHOOSH occurs with a nice sound effect. I was grinning all over my face the whole session. Full Tilt Poker really has hit on a winning formula here.

Whoever has gone the longest since posting the big blind ponies it up. You also post a BB when you first join the game.

Other than that, it's a fairly normal game of poker, apart from when you fold. As soon as the action reaches you and your cards are folded, WHOOSH, off you go to a new hand.

The only exception, and it REALLY speeds up play (as if Rush Poker is not fast enough already!!), is the Quick Fold button:

Quick Fold makes Poker Rush even more crazy

Quick Fold makes a very fast game INSANE and even more fun!

Quick Fold takes a fraction of a second. It WHOOSHES you to a new hand, even before the action reaches your seat! Insanely fast and a lot of fun.

The only thing I didn't like about Rush Poker was that, unlike regular poker, I didn't get a chance to play while I wrote this review! There is no time at all to do anything else. You are totally focused on your game, which can only be a good thing.

Because each hand presents you with new opponents and there are 1,999 other players in your pool, you have little to no chance of learning about your opponent's gameplay -- and forget about taking notes.

Conclusion: TRY IT! You will LOVE it!

Already my favorite poker destination, Rush Poker has made Full Tilt cement its position as the best live online poker site in the world. It ticks all the boxes:

  • Friendly and FAST deposit and withdrawal options
  • Big player base
  • USA players accepted
  • The only site to offer you a real RUSH!
