Full Tilt Poker review
Full Tilt Poker is, besides PokerStars, one of the biggest and most famous poker sites online. Everybody knows the famous poker show "Poker After Dark" on tv, which is sponsered by Full Tilt and the famous slogan "Learn, chat and play with the pros". Full Tilt Poker offers a great 24/7 customer support, a mac version of the software and has some well-known poker legends like Howard Lederer, Chris Ferguson or Phil Ivey in its team.
Software and Design
The Full Tilt Poker software is fast, save and offers good customization options. You can choose a cartoon avatar out of a wide variety of included avatars and if you made it to be a Full Tilt Red Pro or purchase a very huge amount of Full Tilt Poker Points, you get your own custom avatar with your face on it. The cartoon avatars are a bit tiresome to look at after a while, but this doesn't narrow the overall impression of the software. For players looking for a simple and clean game, the backgrounds and avatars can be turned off, leaving a strictly functional interface.
The stats functions at Full Tilt allows to save notes of your opponents and at the lobby, you can see the viewed-flop percentage, the average pot size and the hands played per hour.
A nice feature, that other poker rooms doesn't have, is that the saved notes are also available in the lobby, so you can see what kind of players are at a certain table before joining. This saves you a lot of time and eases the table selection.
Players can also save their hand histories on the local hard drive for viewing later or import them in a analysis software like Poker Office or PokerTracker.
