The big news this week comes to us from PokerStars, the world’s largest online poker room, as it has announced intentions to develop a product similar to the uber popular and now defunct Rush Poker.  Full Tilt Poker developed Rush Poker as “the ultimate high speed poker game”. 

Full Tilt Poker was shut down on June 29 after its licensing arm, the Alderney Gaming Control Commission, pulled the plug on the site for failure to pay out customers.  FTP co-founders were charged on April 15 in the United States with money laundering and bank fraud.  The Rush Poker site was also seized by US authorities. 

PokerStars founder were also charged as part of the same indictment, however, Stars has continued to thrive after paying all its customers and exiting the US market. 

PokerStars released the following statement this past weekend:

"Pokerstars is developing a fast moving ring games product. We expect it to be available for public beta testing in a few months."
