Speed Hold’em Hits iPoker Network
Rapid-fire instant-fold style poker is heading to Titan Poker, Winner.com Poker, Poker770 and other sites on the iPoker Network.
The new Speed Hold’em, which is still in beta testing, launched earlier this week on iPoker sites with support for No-Limit Hold’em.
Pot-Limit Omaha will be added in the near future.
Similar to Full Tilt’s Rush Poker and PokerStars’ Zoom Poker, Speed Hold’em allows players to immediately fold their hand and be transported to another table with a fresh hand.
The benefit of a variant like Speed Hold’em is that it allows you to put in much more volume.
The average player can easily triple the number of hands he or she plays at a single table. More hands means more frequent player points.
Currently Speed Hold’em is limited to the downloaded game client so there’s no in-browser play.
You can find Speed Hold’em in the main lobby of each online poker site that offers it under the Speed Poker tab.
Currently iPoker is offering support for $.02/$.05 to $.50/$1 games but more stakes are likely to be introduced in the coming weeks.
