One of the latest variations, not so much in the way Holdem Poker is played, but in that way the tournament is organised is Rush Poker. As it sounds Rush Poker is a pretty successful attempt to speed up the tournament and the brains behind this new form of tournament have come up with some pretty original and innovative ideas on how it can be done, and how online poker can be heated up to fever pitch.
Rush Poker Tournaments can either start with four players to a table, six, eight or even ten. As the tournament begins so does it finish, with the same number of players at the final table? It's the interesting path they have to take in order to get there that makes playing in a Rush Poker tournament so dynamic.
What makes Rush Poker interesting is that as soon as a player drops out of a hand they are automatically whisked on to another table where they play against up to three other players in the same situation. The powerful software involved in tracking this rapid movement also identifies the two players who have gone the longest without posting blinds. The one who has posted less blinds get to be the big blind, and the player who has posted more of the two is on the little blind. That way the onus of posting blinds should even out as well as can be expected during the white hot pace of a Rush Poker Holdem tournament.
The real action begins in Rush Poker tournaments as the field begins to thin out, and play becomes short-handed. When there are twelve players are left in the tournament, play automatically switches to three tables of four players each, and continues with three tables till the number goes down to eight, when play is switched to two tables, and then the final table with just four players.
It is only when thefinal table stage at a Rush Poker tournament is reached do things return to normal, and is played out as any normal Poker Holdem final table would be.
