WHY IS PUB POKER DIFFERENT FROM THE REST?

Our friendly and professional Pub Poker dealers are there to run the game and also assist inexperienced players.  Plus, Pub Poker offers a unique tournament  format that ensures lots of games and chances for everyone – giving participants an entire evening of fun and competition – not just until they receive that first “bad beat”.

Pub Poker also sets itself apart from the rest by providing direct paths into our quarterly Pub Poker Full Tilt Grand Finals (see HOW DO I MAKE THE PUB POKER FULL TILT GRAND FINAL? below). Pub Poker players don’t need to go through multiple and complex qualification processes to compete for the Big Prizes – at least 3 players from every Pub Poker venue qualify for the Pub Poker Full Tilt Grand Final.

Every quarter, Pub Poker holds its Pub Poker Full Tilt Grand Final. Great prizes are on offer, topped by the fantastic Full Tilt Aussie Millions package valued at $15,000.

HOW DO I MAKE THE PUB POKER FULL TILT GRAND FINAL?

There are 3 ways to qualify for the Pub Poker Full Tilt Grand Final:

VENUE POINTS LEADERS

Each Venue has a 10 week season. Every week, players compete for points to contribute to their overall standing on the Venue Leaderboard. After 10 weeks, the Top 2 points leaders win seats into the Pub Poker Full Tilt Grand Final.

VENUE FINAL WINNER

At week 11, Venues hold a Venue Final. Admission into to this Final is gained either by winning one of the Venue’s Pub Poker weekly events, or by earning enough points throughout the venue season to qualify for the Points Qualifier. The winner of the Venue Final wins a seat in the Pub Poker Full Tilt Grand Final.

PUB POKER FULL TILT ONLINE TOURNAMENTS

Every Sunday evening, Full Tilt hosts a special Pub Poker Online Tournament. Details for this tournament can be found each week in the Full Tilt News section of www.pubpoker.net.au (http://www.pubpoker.net.au/archives/category/news/full-tilt-poker-news). Simply visit Fulltilt.org to download the software. Register your account, and be sure to use PUBPOKERAUS as your referral/bonus code. It’s easy!

Each week, the Top 6 place getters earn entry into the Pub Poker Full Tilt Online Final (held in the week leading up to each Pub Poker Full Tilt Grand Final). The Top 6 in the Online Final win a seat into the Pub Poker Full Tilt Grand Final (winners must be registered Pub Poker members to gain entry).

HOW DO I EARN PUB POKER VENUE POINTS?

Pub Poker Venue Points can be earned in 3 ways:

ATTENDANCE

Every player that attends a Pub Poker event earns 1 point.

POKER PERFORMANCE

Players earn points based on their poker performance. All players that qualify for the Final Table earn 2 points. The Top 8 players on the Final Table earn additional points, based on the following scale:

1st = 15 pts

2nd = 10 pts

3rd = 9 pts

4th = 8 pts

5th = 7 pts

6th = 6 pts

7th = 5 pts

8th = 4 pts

IN VENUE EXPENDITURE

Players can also earn points based on their In Venue expenditure. 1 point per drink (up to 8 drinks) and 2 points for a meal. An additional 10 points per event can be earned  to contribute to the player’s overall standing on the Venue Leaderboard.

HOW DOES THE POINTS QUALIFIER/VENUE FINAL SYSTEM WORK?

Every Pub Poker Venue has their own 10 week season, with an ongoing venue specific leaderboard. Players earn points via attendance, poker performance and expenditure. Every weekly winner throughout the venue’s 10 week season wins a seat into the Venue Final.  The Venue Final occurs every 11 weeks. Additional seats are awarded for the Venue Final via a Points Qualifier game. This game occurs on Venue Final night, before the main game.  Players ranked 3rd – 10th on the Venue Leaderboard (once all Venue Final Seat winners are disregarded) compete in this game to win seats into the Venue Final. The winner of the Venue Final earns entry into the Pub Poker Full Tilt Grand Final.

Venue Leaderboards are updated weekly and available for viewing at www.pubpoker.net.au/venue or your Pub Poker venue.

WHAT IS FULL TILT?

Full Tilt Poker is one of the world’s largest online poker sites. Their goal is to promote poker, the hottest game that’s sweeping the nation. Poker is no crap shoot. There’s no closing your eyes and hoping your lucky number comes up on the wheel. Poker is courage. Poker is art. Poker is skill. And at Full Tilt Poker they  have some of the most talented players in the world available to help you improve your game and have fun at the same time.

Not only do their pros have decades of cumulative experience playing at real poker tables, they also bring a wealth of knowledge about the online poker world. Their contributions to the design process allow Full Tilt to incorporate all the best features that make playing and learning a pleasurable experience. Some of these features include avatars with four different facial animations so you can let your opponents know whether you’re on tilt or on fire. Of course, if you’d prefer to just concentrate on your cards, you can turn the avatars off. They have visual hand histories that let you see the last 50 hands at any given time. You can view your own stats, to see how many hands you play preflop, on the flop or all the way to the river, as well as your winning percentages for those hands to help you refine your game. There is also a “find a player” feature, and a color-coded notes feature which lets you take notes on players, and see at a glance if you’ve marked them as a fish, or a shark.

If you have concerns about security, let us put your mind at ease. The people behind Full Tilt Poker are of the highest integrity and they stake their reputations on every hand. Their software is continually tested, guaranteed to be 100% virus-free, and will not change any settings on your computer. Also, their random number generator meets all requirements of the Kanawakee Gaming Commission to ensure an authentic gaming experience.

Full Tilt Poker offers a wide variety of poker games including No Limit, Pot Limit, and Fixed Limit Hold’em as well as varieties of Omaha, Stud, and Razz. They have ring games, Sit & Go tournaments, and multi-table tournaments. If you can find it in a poker room, you can find it on Full Tilt Poker

And most of all, Full Tilt Poker brings you the single best feature of any online poker room: their pros. Only on Full Tilt Poker can you get advice from guys like 6-time WSOP bracelet winner Erik Seidel, Celebrity Poker Showdown host Phil Gordon, or Howard Lederer, whose instructional videos and live poker commentary for major tournaments have earned him the nickname, “The Professor”. There’s also Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, winner of 5 World Series of Poker bracelets, whose win in the main event in 2000 was chronicled in the bestselling book, Positively Fifth Street, and Phil Ivey, whose tournament finishes the last two years make him the hottest young player in poker today.

So come play at Full Tilt Poker. They’ll get you started with some play cash right away so you can sit down and start working on your skills.
