Does anybody remember playing on Fulltiltpoker.com back when it first came out? I opened my account after reading Phil Gordon's Poker: The Real Deal. It was a Christmas gift from my mom one year and although it wasn't exactly one of those improve your game type poker books, it was at least a good read in general.
Anyways, I remember playing on Full Tilt back when the off peak hours meant sometimes 15 minutes literally for a 9 handed sng to fill up.
Back then I mainly only played limit holdem with the occasional sng thrown in. A multi tabling cash game session meant playing on two tables (because there wasn't even enough people online to start a third table.)
At the time I really thought this site would never take off. It wasn't like partypoker/">Party Poker, where at the time you could barely even register for a sng before it filled up and cash games required waiting on a list.
It's just amazing to me when I think back how simple and empty this site used to be. This site is now one of the power houses in online poker with easily the best interface (in my opinion)
Back then they had like 5 pros or something. Nowadays they have more than you can count, and half of them I've never even heard of.
Sorry for the book. I've been thinking a lot lately about the time in my life when I discovered poker and thought I'd see if anybody remembers Full Tilt when it was almost nothing. (Back then I used the frog avatar)
