hello, I play in rush poker... on FT and the advice i will give, is to start playing in 0.02/0.05 first , and play tight. There are some joker players and you need to be carefull. If you want, mark them with a color when you play against them, so you know about them next time. And try to play with the minimum , $2 , not with the maximum $5. Yes if you start with $5 you can win more, but when you lose... its rly bad for your bankroll. And try to get out when you have $3 , almost 3$ or more. So like this you will be on +, instead losing them. Ofc if you think can manage to not lose, you can go with more, and bigger SB-BB.
And with FTP, i had 1100+ and i buy 4 tickets to daily dollar, since im playing those every day.
thanks for all the info and good advise. i like the one about marking players with a color so i can see them next time . i was going to try get points for a ring ticket it is a bit like cash back but not quite

Okay this is a sneaky tip for playing Rush.
If I'm on the small blind or cut off with a marginal hand that I'd really like to see the flop with I've found that I'm more likely to fold if a player acting before me takes an age over their decision. I find myself thinking it's only marginal and I can't be bothered waiting just fold and move on to the next hand.
Now I can't be the only person that thinks like that so if I'm going to raise from early position I almost run the clock down. Hopefully the marginals that may have been calling just got bored and have already folded.

Hello I expected a lot of Tilt next time, but unfortunately today it disappointed. I am sure that the hands random in nature, but so often they are incredible hands that you'd think it's like just pulling your arm-armed bandit when a player joins into egyy party.

dunno, i hoped to see some full tilt swag to spend my points on- not really interested in buying tourney tickets- the first time i went to the store, i was kinda surprised there was no stuff to spend my 2 points on- no hats, no caps, no mugs, no Porsche, no Icock, no concierge- hope this is gonna change with time

that's right, buying SnG tickets is one of the best ways to get value from your FT points. Together with some specific ft point buy-in tourneys that give tickets to big tourneys. That $2.25 SnG ticket for 445 ftp is very good value to start with, now that they have them on discount

Until now I am only accumulating, I still haven’t think about that but I didn’t wanted to spend them at those FTP SnG’s with tickets as prizes, it doesn’t seems reasonable. Perhaps one day, when I have much more points than I have now, I can think about going to one of those tourneys (the ones with higher amounts of points as buy-in have already pleasant prizes) or perhaps shopping something!
