Not so long ago we reported that iPoker network is going to be split (News: iPoker confirms network split from September 1st), but that doesn't mean the poker room have to stop the fight for the market share. The iPoker network have just announced it's launch of zoom poker a-like, Speed Hold'em.
The new iPoker Speed Hold’em, which is still in the beta phased, have officially launched earlier this week. At the moment it supports only No-Limit Hold’em games, but the network is looking to expand it in the future to Pot-Limit Omaha as well. Currently Speed Hold’em is limited to the downloaded game client as well.
Currently iPoker is offering players games from $.02/$.05 to $.50/$1, but as the network management informed - stakes arability will expand within next few weeks.
If you don't know how it works yet, here is a short explanation taken from the iPoker description:
How does Speed Hold’em work?
Joining a table enters you into a large player pool.
You’ll face a different table of opponents every hand you play.
You can fold at any moment, even when it’s not your turn to act.
When you fold, you’ll immediately move to a new table to play a new hand.
