Full Tilt Poker

Full Tilt Poker is an online poker card room launched in June 2004 with the involvement of a team of poker professionals, among them Howard Lederer, Phil Ivey, Andy Bloch, Mike Matusow, Jennifer Harman and Chris Ferguson. The service can be reached via two web domains, fulltiltpoker.com, and fulltiltpoker.net, where players can choose to gamble with real or play money.

Full Tilt offers both Windows and Mac software with equal features.

Games offered include Texas hold 'em, Omaha High and Hi-Lo, Razz, Seven Card Stud, Stud Hi-Lo, and mixed games including H.O.R.S.E., HOSE, and HA (Hold'em and Omaha).

Tournaments take place throughout the day and often include participation from one of the Team Full Tilt pros. Freeroll tournaments are common. "Sit and Go" tournaments are offered for one, two, five, ten, and twenty tables. Tables seat 8 players for the H.O.R.S.E., Razz, Stud, and Stud Eight or Better format and 9 players for Hold 'Ems and Omaha variations in each in these tournaments, though some have six players per table and are select tournaments/sit n gos which have turbo blinds (to speed up gameplay). There are also heads up "Sit and Go" in both 2-player and split 4-player formats.

Jerry Yang, winner of the main event of the 2007 World Series of Poker, is a recent notable celebrity player sponsored by Full Tilt Poker.

The Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) is Full Tilt's poker tournament series. They also offer a "Mini Series of Poker", where players may enter tournaments that that are 1/100th of what it would cost you to play in that day's World Series of Poker event.

Features

Full Tilt has "cap limit" games which are played identically to pot-limit or no-limit games, except that the total amount a player can bet in any single hand is capped at 30 times the big blind. A type of tournament added in November 2007 are "Knockout Bounty Tournaments". In these tournaments, a small percentage of the buy in is awarded to the player for each opponent he or she knocks out.

They offer hand history files for analysis, discussion and conversion using a poker hand converter.

An optional "racetrack" view of the table flattens the 3D model in favor of a flat table window.

Another site feature is the "Tips from the Pros" newsletter which includes tips from the professional players associated with the card room.

Full Tilt on television

Full Tilt Poker is or has been the principal sponsor of a number of poker television programs, including:

US players

On September 29 2006, the U.S. Congress passed the Safe Port Act which includes otherwise unrelated anti-gambling language known as the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. Though a number of major online cardroom operators closed their doors to U.S. players as a result of the legislation, Full Tilt Poker continues to offer its services to U.S. players. The company has stated that poker is a game of skill, and that the legislation does not apply to Full Tilt's operations.

FullTiltPoker.net hosts only play money games. These same games are available through Full Tilt Poker alongside the games played for real money.
