Fast Five game

What is Fast Five?

Fast Five is a quick-fire 6-max cash game where players start with precisely five big blinds. It’s played exactly the same way as a regular cash game except everybody starts with a tiny stack, so the action is always fast and furious!

Why only five big blinds?

The tiny buy-in of just five big blinds means that everyone can afford to play, with the smallest buy-in starting at just $2.50.

The fixed buy-in keeps the game fast and fair. Players can’t sneak in with one or two big blinds for a quick hit and run, nor can they sit down with a huge stack to bully others. Fast Five is fair, fast and full of chances to win a ton of chips in minutes!

What’s the difference between Fast Five and normal cash games?

In normal cash games players usually buy in with around 30-100 big blinds, but with Fast Five the buy-in is fixed at just five big blinds – no more, no less. This means everybody at the table is short stacked from the first hand, so get ready for plenty of all-ins!

All Fast Five games are No Limit Hold’em 6-max tables, so you never have to wait long for the action to be back on you.

How much does it cost to enter?

There are four different Fast Five blind levels with buy-ins of $2.50, $5, $10 and $100.

Check out the table below for the full list of available Fast Five games:

Blinds Buy-in
$0.25-$0.50 $2.50
$0.50-$1 $5
$1-$2 $10
$10-$20 $100

What can I win?

You’ll start with precisely five big blinds but after that there really is no limit to what you can win. With everybody so short stacked an all-in is always on the cards, so don’t be surprised if you double or treble up in just a few hands!

Fast Five tables are still cash games which means you can stand up, sit down or sit out whenever you please – the choice is yours.
