poker stars logoThe back and forth between the two biggest poker rooms in the game, Full Tilt Poker and Pokerstars continues.

Pokerstars over the past week implemented probably one of the most popular features on Full Tilt Poker; the heads up cash game table. There is nothing like battling someone heads-up and not having to worry about a third player sitting in and not leaving; Pokerstars has finally offered up a solution and implemented the heads up cash game table.

These cash game tables are extremely popular with cash game pros, and also generate quite a bit of rake for the poker rooms, so I am surprised that Pokerstars did not implement this earlier. It is a cash cow due to so many heads being played per hour.

As far as I know, Pokerstars is only spreading as high as $5/$10 at this time. Full Tilt Poker offers much higher limits, so I am curious as to whether or not Pokerstars will follow suit. Pokerstars ultra high limit games have proven to be a failure so far compared to Full Tilt Poker, so they may be aiming for the mid limit player with these new heads up tables.
