Full Tilt Poker set to eradicate shortstackers

Monday, 21 December 2009

Rumours have been flying recently, claiming that some big changes will be occurring at Full Tilt Poker in the New Year. This comes as many in the industry expect big changes from the major sites – Full Tilt, PokerStars, PartyPoker – regarding their VIP systems.

Full Tilt has confirmed one change for 2010 – and it’s something every grinder at the site will be ecstatic about. Shortstackers are a universal problem at poker sites – not only do they bring less money to the table, but they often double up and leave: a process known as ratholing.

Since PokerStars introduced deep (50BB minimum) tables, shortstackers have flooded Full Tilt. It's now expected that Full Tilt will raise the minimum buy-in on all their ring game tables. “That’s not all we’re going to do, but that’s the biggest change,” said Full Tilt’s representative on the Two Plus Two forums. “And that’s all I can say about that until the update.”

However, what is confirmed is that the VIP system will undergo an overhaul, as well as two new features called 2-click exit and a new dialog box feature for taking seats at tables.
