Full Tilt Poker, which is now a sister site to its one-time rival PokerStars, has launched New to the Game tables to make its software more user friendly than ever.
Full Tilt Poker’s New to the Game feature includes online poker tournaments as well as cash games. While the stakes are kept low, the game play is slower, making it easier for new poker players to learn, understand, and play the game. New to the Game poker tables also offers invaluable tips to help players understand their hand strength better.
According to Full Tilt Poker’s official website, new players are urged to use the basic view mode of Full Tilt Poker’s gaming lobby if they want to find New to the Game scheduled tournaments, ring games, and Sit and Go tournaments. The online poker room explains, “Basic View is an interactive guide designed to help you find the games you want to play via step-by-step instructions.” New players have to hit the Options tab in the lobby and choose Basic View under Lobby View. If the Full Tilt Poker software considers players eligible, they will be automatically taken to the New to the Game tables. If players have already learned the game and gained the required set of skills, they will be directly taken to the standard tables.
If players who are eligible for New to the Game have opened the Standard View, their games list will show only New to the Game tables. If players want to see all the games that are available to them, they must hit the Show All Sit & Go Tournaments or Show All Ring Game Tables tab. To get back to the original list, players can hit the Show New to the Games Tables Only tab.
New to the Game cash table tables are available at the smallest stakes offered at Full Tilt Poker, and players can play at as many as two tables at the same time. The Sit and Go tournaments within the New to the Game feature are available at the smallest buy-ins offered at Full Tilt Poker, and players can play as many as two Sit and Go tournaments at the same time.
The New to the Game feature is not available to all players. The software takes factors such as number of hands played and number of Sit and Go’s and scheduled tournaments played into considered while deciding if a player is eligible for this feature.
