FullTilt drastically slashes game roster
Posted by Defrag, April 18
FullTilt is continuing its recent trend of changing towards a poker room aimed at recreational players: they made several cuts from the games in last week, mostly reducing the stakes available for the high stakes games.

The changes are enormous and this is the single boldest move from a long time in the poker industry. The main reasoning behind the changes is to simplify the offer so it's easier to find the games for recreational players.
However, besides the modification in less popular games, poker room decided to cut all High Stakes games (which FullTilt was so known for in the past), leaving just No-Limit and Pot-Limit games at two levels: $250/$500 and $25/$50.

Here is the full list of games removed from the site:
    Adrenaline Rush games (from the end of April)
    Cap and Deep Stack Heads-Up No Limit Hold’em games
    Cap, Deep Stack and Deep Stack with Ante 6-Max No Limit Hold’em games
    Shallow Stack Full Ring No Limit Hold’em games
    Pot Limit Hold’em Heads-Up and 6-Max games
    Full Ring Fixed Limit Hold’em games
    Deep Stack Pot Limit Omaha Heads-Up games
    Cap, Deep Stack and Deep Stack with Antes Pot Limit Omaha 6-Max games
    Deep Stack with Antes 6-Card Pot Limit Omaha Heads-Up games

Are Spin&Go'es beatable or not?
Written by: Defrag, April 13
Introduction to Spin&Go tournaments(skip that if you know how they work)
When Spin&Go tournaments were introduced there was an enormous migration of recreational players from normal Sit&go tournaments to Spin&go format - it's a perfect format to attract that kind of players.
If you don't know how they work - each tournament is 3-max, winner-take-all, hyper turbo Sit&go with a random prize pool. Buy-ins range from $1 to $60, and each tournament has a randomly drawn prize pool that will award between two and 3,000 times your buy-in. The highest multiplies are obviously super rare (1 of 100,000 for the 3,000xbuy-in, even the 240x multiplier have a chance of just 5 out of 100,000).

The games are insanely fast, give a thrill of emotion through the random prize pool and that's what recreational players were looking for. Jackpot was hit by PokerStars.
