Full Tilt Poker adds news games.
Ladbrokes Poker to Migrate to iPoker Network.

Full Tilt Poker has added some new game varieties - 5-Card Stud and Irish. In addition, a new tournament format called the "Escalator" has been added.

Here is how Full Tilt Poker explains the new game varieties:

  • 5-Card Stud: One of the oldest poker variants, the rules of 5-Card Stud are very similar to those of Stud Hi; the main difference is that in 5-Card Stud, players are dealt a total of five cards during the hand and must use all of these to make their best high hand at showdown, while in Stud Hi players can choose any five of their seven cards to make their best hand.
  • Irish: This game is a variant of Hold'em, where the main difference becomes obvious when the cards are first dealt: players are dealt four hole cards instead of two pre-flop. Two of these must be discarded after the flop round of betting, and the hand then proceeds similarly to a standard Hold'em hand. Irish is offered in both No Limit and Pot Limit formats.

5-Card Stud is currently being offered in Fixed Limit format from $0,05/$0,10 all the way up to $1000/$2000, while Irish is being offered from $0,01/$0,02 NL/PLO to $400/$800 NL/PLO.

The Escalator tournaments are different to tournaments with Normal, Turbo or Super Turbo structures, as the duration of the blind levels gradually increase as the game progresses.
