Full Tilt Poker has added a few new card games recently. Irish poker is the more notable of the new games. The other new poker games at Fulltilt in 2013 are Courchevel poker, 5 Card Omaha and 5 Card Stud. All of these card games except 5 Card Stud are making their debut in the online poker world. To be honest I had never heard of Irish poker, Courchevel or 5 Card Omaha because Full Tilt Poker and Pokerstars added them to their software. I really wish I could play these games for real money but Fulltilt and Pokerstars do not accept US players in 2013, at least not yet. This post is primarily about Irish poker at Full Tilt Poker and it includes a offer for a $10.30 bankroll that does not require a deposit. This new card game is a Texas Holdem variant so it is bound to grow in popularity. Right now there are a limited number of real money Irish poker tables at Fulltilt but this is the standard procedure there. They tend to offer new games on a limited basis and analyze their reception amongst poker players. They will then use this data to determine how they want to proceed in regards to the tournament schedule and sitngo availability. These new additions at FTP bring their total number of poker games up to 14. This number does not include the 15 different mixed poker games there or Rush poker, which is a new way to play existing games.
I have added some basic info about playing Irish poker at Full Tilt Poker below. This information is bound to change in the next few weeks as FTP rolls out more ring tables and tournaments for this new game.
Want a free $10.30 bankroll to give Irish poker a try? If you have never opened an account at Fulltilt Poker you can claim this no-deposit bonus. This is not available at the www.Fulltiltpoker.com web site. It is a unique promotion that is only open to a few affiliates and the players they send for the next few months.

The above image outlines what you will receive. Our players at Fulltilt Poker will also receive the three 100% bonuses, a $2.25 MTT ticket and 10 seats to the $50,000 depositor freerolls. Out of all of the top online poker rooms in 2013 only Full Tilt Poker is offering a no deposit bonus.
The Irish poker rules are very similar to the rules of Omaha poker. Irish poker basically is Omaha poker but you must discard two of your four hole cards after the flop. Discarding two hole cards completely changes the dynamic of the game and the strategies required to win. Here are a few notes on the differences between Omaha poker and Irish poker strategy.
You are going to have to change your tactics and strategies if you plan on winning money at the Irish poker tables. Winning Irish poker strategy is not set in stone since not many people even know how to play it. It certainly hasn’t been studied like Holdem or Omaha has. There are no programs or charts that will tell you which cards to keep or your odds of winning.
This means that the potential for profit is far greater when you play Irish poker, compared to games like Holdem. Since this game is more complex than the others it is also likely that you could lose a lot of money while you are cutting your teeth. I suggest going all-in and working to perfect your Irish poker strategy. Solid Irish poker players will win far more money than solid Holdem or Omaha players. This is an opportunity to get in early and dominate a card game. Time is of the essence though. You want to take advantage of the players who want to check out the new game.
You will be going after draws in Irish poker very often. You will also have to choose between made hands and draws. Making the right choice is going to determine if you win money or lose. Here is an example:

Which is the right decision? It all depends on:
