[Ad] The Most Fun Online Poker Game
Which game type would you show a friend who’d never seen online poker before? What one format would be most likely to get them hooked, even if at first poker seems boring to them?
If we had to pick one discipline, it’d be Fast Fold No Limit Texas Hold’em.
That’s a cunning double whammy of:
- as Doyle Brunson put it, the ‘cadillac of poker‘ – No Limit Holdem (NLHE), where even a rank beginner understands the concept of going ‘all in’ and can get to grips with two hole cards relatively quickly
- the Fast Fold Poker format – aka ‘Rush Poker’ or ‘Zoom’, it’s branded name on Full Tilt and PokerStars – which allows you to speed fold rags and see more monsters, pumping up your volume and profits
These dual elements combine to create arguably the most ‘wow factor’, especially for a new player.
