Player Notes Enhancements

We’ve made it even easier for you to make notes on your opponents at the table.

You can now assign a color note to a player without having to open the Player Notes window. Simply right-click on the player and choose “Color Code” to assign your desired highlighting.

The software will now also remember any changes you make to the position and size of the Player Notes window for the next time you want to make a note.

  • For 7, 8, 9 and 10-Game Mixed Games, we have added Cap Games
  • For 2-7 Triple Draw, we have added Pot Limit tables with Antes
  • For HA, we have added a Mixed Limit version

A new option that you’ll find in the Options dialog allows you to customize the Bet Buttons on the Bet Slider at the table.

You can choose the bet sizes you want for No Limit and Pot Limit games, both Pre-Flop and Post-Flop. In the Options dialog, select Table Options then Custom Bet Buttons. Choose the multipliers that suit your game from the dropdown menus or by typing directly into the boxes.

Pre-Flop bet sizes are in multiples of Big Blinds and can be set up to 6X for both No Limit and Pot Limit games. Post-Flop bet sizes are a percentage of the pot size and can be set up to 150% for No Limit games, and 100% for Pot Limit games.

Multi-Entry Tournaments

Give yourself multiple chances to make a big tournament score with Multi-Entry Tournaments, a unique tournament format exclusive to Full Tilt Poker.

Multi-Entry Tournaments allow you to register for the same tournament numerous times, meaning you can “multi-table” a single tournament! Each of your entries in a Multi-Entry Tournament will have its own chip stack and be dealt its own hand. You can register multiple entries at the same time, or use additional entries as a “second chance” if your first entry is eliminated from the tournament in the early stages of play.

To find a Multi-Entry Tournament, set the filters in the Standard View browse area to Tournament and look for tournaments identified with the following icon in the game list:

Multiple Entry Tournament Game List

Black Card Improvements

Earn extra Full Tilt Points multipliers through your Black Card membership by reaching higher points thresholds. Achieve a 1,500-point rolling average to earn your 3x Full Tilt Point multiplier, or a 3,000-point rolling average to earn your 4x Full Tilt Point multiplier.

Track your progress as you play by using the updated Black Card Status widget:

Black Card Status Widget Updated

You can also monitor your 100-day rolling average and milestone points thresholds through your personal Black Card page, available in the My Promotions section of the Cashier.

Learn more about The Black Card by Full Tilt Poker.

Sit Out at All Tables

To create a smoother multi-tabling experience, we’ve added the option to sit out the next hand or next big blind across all tables.

While at the table, you’ll see a triangle icon next to the “Sit Out Next Hand” and “Sit Out Next BB” checkboxes. Click the icon to open a menu of available options:

Sit Out at All Tables

Select “Sit Out Next Hand (All)” to sit out at all tables you’re currently playing, or “Sit Out Next BB (All)” to sit out when the big blind reaches your position.

When you’re ready to rejoin the action, select the “I’m Back At All Tables” option in the same menu:

I’m Back At All Tables

Please note that this feature is enabled by default. If you’d like to disable this feature, you can click the Options button at any table, select the “Misc” tab and uncheck the “Enable Custom Sit Out Controls” option:
