Full Tilt Poker
Full Tilt Poker has once again improved its poker client software, with some very cool additions that include Ante Games, new Ring Game Icons, Synchronized Breaks, and Network Communication Improvements to avoid those nasty disconnections during gameplay.

Here’s a detailed rundown of the new features:

Ante Games

This feature will entice pot-hungry players as it created bigger post in Full Tilt Poker’s NL and PL ring games. In these cash tables each player must pay an ante before the hole cards are dealt. For example, each player will pay a $10 ante bet before getting his/her cards in $25/$50 No Limit Texas Hold’em.

Ante games have a dedicated ‘A’ icon that can be seen in the Full Tilt Poker ring game lobby:


Ante games are pretty common in Las Vegas and on TV poker shows such as Poker After Dark. It’s more aggressive and pays out if you’ve got the nerves to play it.
Ring Game Icons
With Full Tilt Poker’s new ring game icons you’ll be able to quickly decide which game you’d like to play. The new icons are for:
  • Ante
  • Cap
  • Deep Stack
  • Educational
  • Speed
  • 6 players max
  • Heads Up

Synchronized Breaks

Playing poker at Full Tilt around the clock and in need of a break? The new feature Synchronized Breaks feature lets you take a 5-minute break for every hour of tournament play. This means that after 55 minutes of each hour the tournament will be on a 5-minute break; for instance, if a tournament starts at 21:15 CET, the tourney clock will stop at 21:55 CET and hands being played at that time will be completed before the break starts, so there won’t be any problems with some tables taking more time than others. 5 minutes after the last hand was played the tourney will resume until the next break which will take place at 22:15 CET.

This is a great feature that players playing at multiple poker tournaments can use.

Synchronized Breaks don’t work in these cases:
  • Tournaments open for late registration that are still running
  • Tournaments in the first blind level
  • Turbo Tournaments in the first two blind levels
  • Sit and Go Tournaments with under 30 participants
Network Communication Improvements

Full Tilt Poker has improved problems with lagging connections and slow responses. Ever had slow responses when you multitabled, played in large events, or just switched between Texas Hold’em and Omaha? Well, it’s now going to be much faster.
