$55,000 Full Tilt Poker Skills Challenge - Including $20,000 Freeroll

Posted at 18:12 2011-02-19

We’re excited to announce a brand new online poker league in partnership with online poker giant Full Tilt Poker that will give $55,000 in cash and prizes including a massive $20,000 cash freeroll for PokerNetwork players.

The $55,000 Full Tilt Poker Skills Challenge is a series of low stakes league events offering great variety and generous money-added value. The league will culminate in a massive $20,000 Championship Final Freeroll.

Got the Skills? We have the Money.

Starting on February 24th and running right through until April 21st, there will be one league event a week every Thursday morning at 8:00am with $1,000-$5,000 added to every prize pool.

The top 64 players in each league event will score league points that count towards the League Final Freeroll and $20,000 Championship Final Freeroll. Each event will have a points multiplying factor, and some events will score more points to the top finishers than others.

The top 32 players in the league will gain entry into the League Final Freeroll on April 21st to win one of 15 seats to the Full Tilt $750,000 Guaranteed.

The top 200 players in the league standing will then make it to the $20,000 Championship Final Freeroll on May 2nd, which will be one of our most exclusive and biggest single freerolls ever.

FastTrack Your Way to the $20,000 Freeroll

If you miss out on qualifying for the league final, don’t have the time or just want to guarantee your spot, you can get there direct without playing any of the league events. That’s because any PokerNetwork/PokerNews referred Full Tilt Poker account holders who earn 200 Full Tilt Points in the month of April will be eligible to play also.

The $20,000 freeroll is likely to have one of the smallest fields but one of the biggest prize pools you are ever likely to see, so whether you play the league or not you want to get in on this action. If you have already been playing the league events in April you will already have plenty of Full Tilt Points to get you started.

So whether you fast track your way to the $20,000 freeroll or beat up the competition, if you’ve got the skills we have the $55,000 added money you’ve been waiting for. Download Full Tilt Poker today and use bonus code PKRNETWORK to get in on the action while you enjoy a 100% up to $600 first deposit bonus.
