Full Tilt Implements Policy Changes to Suit Recreational Poker Players

Full Tilt m.d. Dominic Mansour has addressed the promise of upcoming changes to the site with a series of important updates to Full Tilt policy.

Policy updates effect heads-up cash, nosebleed stakes and Mixed Games, which have been removed, and new rules to prevent table selection advantage.

With regard to the removal of heads up cash games, Mansour said:

"Heads Up games were being adversely impacted by the minority of experienced players who targeted 'weaker' opponents rather than take on all challengers, and secondly, new players who tried out the Heads Up games found it intimidating and confusing (asking themselves 'why are all these guys not playing each other?'). In short, Heads Up ring games just didn't form part of a healthy poker ecosystem, which made our decision to remove them easier."

Eliminating nosebleed stakes, Stud, Draw and Mixed Games is geared toward providing a more level playing field for recreational players.

"We recognize that in the past, a proportion of players have used extensive table selection to their advantage and that those players might not like these changes," Mansour said. "Their advantage over other players will now be negated and we don't think that's a bad thing."
