Over the last few years one of the most popular innovations in online poker was Full Tilt Poker’s Rush Poker. The fast-paced ring game allowed for players to play hands in rapid-fire succession by seating them at a new table as soon as they fold a hand.
Rush Poker proved to be quite popular among players and apparently had a patent pending on it. Full Tilt Poker spent quite a bit of time and money promoting it as a feature that set it apart from its competitors. But with Full Tilt’s departure from the online poker world as a result of the U.S. DOJ investigation and license suspension from the Alderney Gambling Control Commission, Rush Poker has become a non-option for players around the world.
Last week a short post by a representative from PokerStars on the Two Plus Two forums hinted at a possible version of Rush Poker from his company that may be in the works. “PokerStars Stefan” wrote that “PokerStars is developing a fast moving ring games product. We expect it to be available for public beta testing in a few months.”
No other details have been announced, but it certainly seems as though the offering will bear a resemblance to Full Tilt’s version of Rush Poker. No information is available on the details of the patent that Full Tilt Poker claims to have pending on its version.
