Speed Poker is a new game format that allows instead of joining a single table, to join a pool of players playing same stake. Instead of waiting around for a hand to complete, you can 'Speed Fold' and join a new hand instantly. You will be randomly seated with players from the pool at a new table. You can even play on multiple Speed tables simultaneously so you will have more action and less time-wasting.
Speed Fold is a feature that instantly transfers you to a new table without having to wait around for hands to complete. The short keyboard key for speed fold is F1. Blinds are assigned to players who have played the longest without posting them.
When playing on speed game and regular tables simultaneously, there are no other limitations than the usual – maximum 16 tables can be opened at a time, no matter cash, tournament or speed game tables.
