About Paddy Power Poker
PaddyPower began in 1988 when three Irish bookmakers merged. It is now Ireland's biggest bookmaker and currently sits on the Irish and London Stock Exchanges. PaddyPower is well-known within the industry for its colorful publicity stunts, and in equal measure, for its stability, value-packed promotions and excellent customer service.

[H]Games Offered at Paddy Power Poker[/H]
The majority of cash game action at Paddy Power Poker is found at the six-max no limit hold’em cash game tables, with plenty of games taking place between the €0.01/€0.02 up to €1/€2 stakes. During peak times, regular games as high as €5/€10 take place.
Low stakes six-handed pot-limit Omaha is also popular, although most of the traffic revolves around peak European times.
Paddy Power Poker features [I]Speed Poker[/I], its take on the "fast-fold" poker craze. Instead of being seated at the same table for the duration of your play, you get to change table and opponents each time you fold!
If you don’t like the cards you have been dealt, you can click the speed fold button and are instantly whisked away to a new table with new opponents and cards! You can do this as frequently as you like until you find hole cards that you are happy to play.
Paddy Power Poker is also the home to [I]Twister Poker[/I], a special sit and go tournament format. The tournaments are played three-handed to a hyper-turbo blind structure and feature prizes randomly selected at the start of the tournament. The software randomly selects a prize pool amount of between twice and 1,000 times the initial buy-in and the winner-takes-all!
