At one point, Full Tilt Poker was the #2 online poker site in the world and a solid competitor to PokerStars. Unfortunately, the company fell into mismanagement and after the events of Black Friday; it appeared that a once great site would fall by the wayside.
Fortunately, PokerStars stepped in and purchased the failed company as part of their settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice over Black Friday. They repaid former Full Tilt players and then proceeded to revamp the site under their corporate umbrella.
Now owned by Amaya, Inc, Full Tilt has become a solid alternative to PokerStars and is currently the #6 online poker site in the world based on stats tracked by PokerScout.com. Now that New York is considering the issue of online poker legalization, the door for Full Tilt’s return to the United States could be opening and they could position themselves as a solid online poker alternative.

Full Tilt is the Place to Play POKER, Not Just Hold’em
One thing you can be sure of when Full Tilt comes to New York is that they will offer one of the most comprehensive spreads of online poker games in the state. Like PokerStars, Full Tilt offers nearly every game every conceived.
Below are the game typically spread on Full Tilt:
• Texas Hold’em (FL, PL, NL)
• Omaha (FL, PL, NL)
• Six-Card Omaha
• Seven Card Stud
• Omaha Hi-Lo
• Stud Hi-Lo
• Five Card Draw
• Triple Draw (2-7 and A-5)
• NL 2-7 Single Draw
• NL Irish
• Mixed Games (7-Game, 8-Game, 10-Game, H.O.R.S.E., HA)
In addition to the above games, Full Tilt is the original creator of fast fold poker known as Rush Poker. In Rush Poker, players are moved to a new table and dealt a new hand whenever they fold. When first introduced, this concept was revolutionary and soon picked up by other sites and renamed. PokerStars’ equivalent is Zoom Poker.
Full Tilt also offers some of the best tournament action in the world with tournaments in all forms of poker spread. Their Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) is the premier online poker tournament series in the world. If they come to New York, expect them to offer unique tournaments geared specifically to New Yorkers.
Full Tilt to Provide Solid Alternative
Simply, if PokerStars is allowed to operate in New York, then Full Tilt will follow them into the state. As a separate stand-alone site, Full Tilt will offer a solid alternative to PokerStars and for any online poker player that loves to play more than Texas Hold’em.
The problems of the past are long gone with the new Full Tilt. Under Amaya, Inc, you can expect a world-class online poker experience coupled with the protections that online poker regulation brings.
