Update: Full Tilt has now been merged with PokerStars... the software still operates, though the game selection for both sites is the same. 


Full Tilt Poker is one of the most popular online poker sites and is owned by the Amaya Gaming group, which is the same company that owns PokerStars. This partnership means that if players have an account at both rooms they can link both of their accounts so that it’s possible to transfer funds between the two poker rooms, which comes in handy if you play at both sites on a regular basis.

Endorsed by some of the biggest names in the game including Gus Hansen and Viktor “Isildur1” Blom, this poker room is where the high stakes cash game pros come to play. As a matter of fact, a large part of Full Tilt’s success can be attributed to its nosebleeds cash games, as thousands of railbirds would login just to watch this action, and began playing poker.

The popular online poker site offers an above average range of tables and game formats as the site can support enough action across all stake levels for both cash games and tournaments. So regardless of the time of day you’re playing, you can get amongst the action.

Full Tilt Poker’s traffic took a bit of a hit following Black Friday when it was forced to pull out of the US market. With that being said, being that Full Tilt Poker is popular with European players, there are lots of Euro players at this site, and the peak traffic times are almost always during the day in Europe. There will also be a lot of players online on weekends especially when there is a large field Sunday major tournament taking place.
