Internet wagering software developer Playtech's iPoker Network has announced that it will be launching a high speed poker game on July 1st titled "Speed Poker".
Dubbing the game "the world's fastest online poker", Speed Poker will be competing against similar games like Zoom Poker, Instadeal, Fast Poker, and Blaze Poker. Speed Poker is very similar to its competitors in that players will have the choice to fold hands and join a new table immediately, effectively speeding up the game.
Writing on the twoplustwo poker forum, an iPoker Network Spokesperson noted that "We will be starting with limited stakes in Hold'em only as a soft launch. PLO and other stakes will be rolled out afterwards, whilst HU, anonymous tables and other variations will definitely be considered for future updates."
