If you are facing a bet you will be given the ‘Forward Fold’ button. This is the main feature of FastForward. Clicking it will allow you to fold out of turn, allowing you to move onto the next hand even faster.
If you want to fold a hand but you would like to stay at the table to see the outcome of the current hand, check the ‘Watch on Fold’ checkbox. Once you fold you will remain at the table until the hand ends. Alternately, you can click ‘Next Hand’ to move onto a new table.
