Full Tilt Poker Releases New SoftwarePublished October 22, 2009 by OCR Editor
Players can now use Run It Twice and Cashout Tournaments features.
Online poker room Full Tilt has released two new features in its latest software update - Run It Twice and Cashout Tournaments.
The Run It Twice feature allows ring game players the option of seeing two outcomes for one hand, providing both players consent to it. The feature can be enabled when one or both of the remaining two players are all in: the remaining community cards are dealt twice, meaning the winner of each of the two outcomes wins half of the prize pool.
The feature has become popular through poker television programs such as NBC's Poker After Dark and GSN's High Stakes Poker.
The Cashout tournament gives players more flexibility as it allows them to cash out some or all of their chips before the end of a tournament. Everything else about the tournament remains the same.
Meanwhile, Full Tilt's latest promotion has seen it offer to match part of poker professional Phil Ivey's winnings at the World Series of Poker Main Event.
Members can play cash games at Full Tilt to enter a raffle where the major prize is for a seat at a tournament named 5 percent piece of Ivey. The prize for that tournament will be based on how Ivey goes at the final table at the WSOP tournament.
Ivey is one of the favorites to beat his eight opponents at the final table and win the $8.5 million Main Event, which begins November 7 in Las Vegas.
