Fairly new to Texas Holdem online? Join the world's largest, most fun online poker game with a recap of the rules and terminology. William Hill have put together a series of 'getting started' articles for beginning poker players before you get your feet wet at their very own fast fold format - Speed Poker.
Why William Hill ? It's one of the most established rooms on the iPoker network - itself one of the top three highest traffic places to play poker online, with Playtech powering the software platform.
Speed Poker players can grind up to 10 tables at once for a 1,200 - 1,600 hands/hr. That means being dealt A♠A♥ approximately once every 8 - 11 mins.
The lowest Speed Poker stakes on William Hill start at €0.02/€0.05, and go up to €1/€2.
Pot Limit Omaha (PLO) Speed tables are also available for players who've grown bored of just two hole cards.
