Join Full Tilt and you can “learn, chat & play with the pros.” The Full Tilt team reads like a who’s who of the poker world; Chris Ferguson, Howard Lederer, Phil Ivey, Phil Gordon & Jennifer Harman (just to name a few.) The pros play on a regular basis, so if you’re up for the challenge, you can sit down and play with the best! WSOP Champion Chris “Jesus” Ferguson created TiltWare, the company that produced the Full Tilt software. Apparently, poker is not the only thing Ferguson is good at; Ferguson ’s Company has produced an incredible online poker experience.

Software: Full Tilt’s software is fast/reliable and easy to use. You’ll find all the standard features; four color deck, hand histories, game statistics, etc. Player to Player $$$ transfers are another nice feature. Full Tilt also offers some nice extras: One of my favorite amenities is the note-taking option that allows you to color/tag the note marker next to a player’s name (great for cataloging donks/sharks/friends etc.) Once you’ve tagged a few fish, you can use the ‘find a player’ option to follow your friends (and/or enemies.)

Note to Mac users: Full Tilt is one of the few online poker rooms that run on Mac/Apple computers.

Graphics: The graphics at Full Tilt are fun and flexible. Yo u can pick from over 40 different avatars and you can change their expressions during a game/hand (from normal, to happy, sad, angry and surprised.) There are also several different backgrounds to choose from. Of all the choices, my preference is to turn off avatars and set the background to Midnight . Try it, you'll like it (or you'll like the smiling monkey.... either way... you'll find something to like.)

Game Selection: Full Tilt offers: Hold'em, Omaha , Omaha Hi/Lo, Stud & Stud Hi/Lo. Plus, they’re the only online poker room to offer RAZZ. Ring game limits range from 05/.10 to $200 / $400.

They offer all the above in tournament form (including H.O.R.S.E. tourneys! Tourney Tip: I highly recommend their ‘double stack’ events where you start w/ twice normal starting chips!

Traffic: Over 10,000 online poker players during peak hours (this is a HUGE improvement over last year & I look for this # to keep growing.)

Bonuses / Promotions:   Full Tilt Poker offers a 100% deposit match bonus (up to $600) for all first time depositors. Note: this bonus can be hard to clear @ the lower/micro limits. We have a Full Tilt referral code here too. They also offer %50 Reload bonuses on a semi-regular basis. While playing, you’ll also earn Full Tilt Points which can be used to enter satellite tourneys or redeemed in the Full Tilt Store

Pros: Play with big name pros, Great Software, Mac/Apple Compatible
