FastForward Rake Race Returns to Party Poker Today

Fastforward Rake Race at Party PokerPlayers who enjoy fast-fold poker games should head over to Party Poker, where the site is running a FastForward Rake Race promotion giving players the opportunity to win a share of $6,000 every day. 

“FastForward” is Party Poker´s fast-fold cash game in which you have the opportunity to fold your hole cards in advance of your turn to act, and be taken to another FastForward cash table at which you will be dealt a fresh pair of hole cards. By speeding up the action, players can get more hands into each session, earn more Cashback Points, and clear bonuses quicker.

To incentivise more players to visit the fast-fold tables, Party Poker is running a FastForward Rake Race promotion over the next eleven days. The promotion consists of two daily leaderboard competitions, and players earn points towards their leaderboard position according to the amount of rake they pay in each hand. The top point earners can win up to $1,000 each day.

Why Two Leaderboard Competitions?

Party Poker is aware players with bigger bankrolls tend to benefit the most from rake races. So the site has created two leaderboard competitions – one for micro-stakes players and one for mid-stakes players – in order to give everybody the chance of winning some money. The site has also capped the mid-stakes leaderboard competition to stop whales monopolising the top prizes.

Consequently, players playing on micro-stakes tables (blinds of $0.02/$0.05 and $0.05/$0.10) will have their own leaderboard competition with a daily prize pool of $1,000. Everybody else can play in the mid-stakes leaderboard competition (blinds of $0.10/$0.25 and $0.25/$0.50) that has a daily prize pool of $5,000 and a deeper payout structure.

Micro-Stakes Leaderboard Mid-Stakes Leaderboard
1st $250 1st $1,000
2nd $200 2nd $800
3rd $150 3rd $600
4th $100 4th $400
5th $75 5th $250
6th $50 6th $200
7th $40 7th $150
8th $30 8th $100
9th $20 9th $75
10th $10 10th $50
11th-25th $5 11th-30th $40
  31st-50th $30

The FastForward Rake Race promotion starts today at Party Poker and runs until Sunday 11th February. Players can track their progress in both leaderboard competitions via the Party Poker website; but please note that, for the sake of the promotion, “days” run from 00:00 CET to 23:59 CET. Prizes will be credited to players´ accounts within 48 hours of each day´s leaderboard competition closing.
