The recent craze of “fast-fold” poker will become available on PartyPoker within a couple of weeks; in fact it will be released at some point today on their client. Named Fast Forward, this brand new feature will launch as play money only in the first instance but as soon as the PartyPoker management are happy with it real money play will be rolled out.
It is our understanding that Fast Forward should be available to play for real money with stakes of $0.02/$0.04 and $0.05/$0.10 very soon after launch with the plan to bring the feature out of Beta-testing within 1-2 weeks. Once the Fast Forward has been fully launched new stake levels will be released based on demand from the players.
This is a very exciting development as it allows PartyPoker to directly compete with PokerStars' Zoom Poker and the other fast-fold poker variants that are currently available. Fast-fold poker was first introduced to the online poker world by Full Tilt Poker when they launched Rush Poker.
The innovative feature allows players to play hundreds of hands per hour thanks to them being seated in a player pool rather than one fixed table. Instead of having to wait for a new hand to be dealt to them, players can fold and be whisked away from their seat and placed on a new table with new players. Many in the industry have wondered when PartyPoker were going to get in on the act and it appears that time is now. Keep a look out for Fast Forward in the PartyPoker lobby.
