Full Tilt Poker is the place to be if you want your shot at playing heads up with the big names in poker. Poker professionals Phil Ivy, Howard Lederer, Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, Jennifer Harman and many more, not only endorse Full Tilt Poker, but can also frequently be found playing at their tables, including at high stakes tables where it’s not uncommon to see hundreds of thousands of dollars (if not millions) change hands between the poker elite.

Full Tilt Poker allows you to chat with professional players and learn from them at Full Tilt’s Poker Academy where you can use a library of multimedia content to hone your skills through interactive lessons taught by Team Full Tilt Professionals.

Full Tilt Poker is the second largest online poker site with a variety of cash games, daily tournaments, satellite qualifiers (where you can qualify for the World Series of Poker!), and promotional tournaments available. At any given moment you will find thousands of players online playing at Full Tilt Poker, making it extremely easy and fast to find a cash game or tournament to begin playing in immediately.

Full Tilt Poker is constantly improving their site with the additions of new graphics, innovative games (such as Cash Out Poker Tournaments, where players have the option of “cashing out” some or all of their tournament chips during play), and enhanced security.

The sign up process at Full Tilt Poker is fast and easy.  There are no glitches and verifying your account for real money play only takes a few seconds. Initially, the software platform appears to have a lot going on. Detailed backgrounds and a plethora of cartoon avatars are a bit overwhelming at first. But once you get used to the background noise and bright colors the playability is actually very good. Personally, I find something refreshing about the concept of playing up the video game quality of online poker.

Bonuses: Full Tilt Poker offers a 100% new player sign up bonus up to $600 when you open an account.  What this means is that when you sign up for an account Full Tilt Poker will give you a bonus equal to the amount you deposit, up to $600. You then receive your bonus as you collect Full Tilt points by playing at cash game tables and in tournaments.

Full Tilt Poker also awards players by offering a variety of Freeroll (tournaments that are free to enter) and promotional tournaments, as well as through Full Tilt’s rewards program- where you accumulate points each time you play that can be used to purchase a variety of merchandise (including cars!) at the Full Tilt store.
