  • Seven Days of Speed at Full Tilt Poker - **OFFICIAL DISCUSSION THREAD**

    Experience the blistering pace and intensity of Rush Poker, the world’s fastest poker game, to earn up to $250 in cash and win free entry to an exclusive $25K Rush Week Freeroll.

    Running from Monday, January 28th to Sunday, February 3rd, Rush Week offers even more reasons to play Rush Poker. Accumulate enough Full Tilt Points by playing Rush Poker ring games, Sit & Gos and tournaments during Rush Week and you could earn up to $250 in cash. In addition, all players who make the final table of a Rush Poker Tournament or Sit & Go will receive entry into the exclusive $25K Rush Week Freeroll. Opt in through the My Promotions tab in the Full Tilt Poker lobby to avail of Rush Week rewards.

    Earn up to $250
    Playing Rush Poker is the fastest way to earn Full Tilt Points – the more you play during Rush Week, the more you’ll earn. Accumulate enough points from Rush Poker games on at least four days to earn your cash reward. Reach your reward level on all seven days to double your cash.

    There are four Rush Week reward levels – reach Mach 4 for your $250 payday:

    Mach 1 (10 Full Tilt Points):

    Earn at least 10 Full Tilt Points per day on any four days to receive $5
    Earn at least 10 Full Tilt Points per day on all seven days to receive $10
    Mach 2 (100 Full Tilt Points):

    Earn at least 100 Full Tilt Points per day on any four days to receive $25
    Earn at least 100 Full Tilt Points per day on all seven days to receive $50
    Mach 3 (350 Full Tilt Points):

    Earn at least 350 Full Tilt Points per day on any four days to receive $50
    Earn at least 350 Full Tilt Points per day on all seven days to receive $100
    Mach 4 (1,000 Full Tilt Points):

    Earn at least 1,000 Full Tilt Points per day on any four days to receive $125
    Earn at least 1,000 Full Tilt Points per day on all seven days to receive $250
    If you achieve more than one of these reward levels, you will receive your highest possible cash amount only – the rewards are not cumulative.

    For example, if you earn a Mach 1 reward on all seven days, and reach Mach 2 on four of those days, you will receive your $25 Mach 2 reward only – this amount is higher than either of the Mach 1 rewards. Likewise, earn 1,000 Full Tilt Points on all seven days and you’ll receive your $250 Mach 4 reward only.

    For more information on Rush Week rewards, please see the Rush Week Rules.

    $25K Rush Week Freeroll
    Win your seat to the exclusive $25K Rush Week Freeroll at 14:15 ET on Sunday, February 10th, by reaching the final table in a Rush Poker Tournament or Sit & Go during Rush Week.

    Hey all, Rush plays just like Zoom, and achieving some of the basic levels for this should be easy to do and profitable even with just a tight straight forward style at micro-stakes. If you've already checked out zoom or are grinding zoom there's no reason not to take advantage of this promo too! Once you've paired your FT and PS accounts you can move money back and forth with ease. If you have been thinking about giving zoom or rush a try, this makes for a good time. You can check out live training for strategy and game play tips for this format. I did a class on Zoom Theory back when Zoom was rolled out, which was based on my experience of several hundred thousand hands of Rush, you can view that video here: Zoom Theory Also both GarethC23 and xflixx play primarily 6-max Zoom and have done many videos of live play and hand review from all stakes between 2NL and 50NL. Since Rush is basically the same thing (on a different software) any of these classes would be worth while to help you prepare. Good luck!!! umbup:
