FTOPS XII Kicks Off At Full Tilt Poker!

Posted at 01:12 2009-05-07
Arguably the most popular online poker series is back with a vengeance. FTOPS XII launches Thursday morning at 11am AEST with a US$200+16 buy-in, million dollar guaranteed event at Full Tilt Poker. The series has grown to US$18 million of guaranteed tournament action in 25 tournaments over 12 days.
 
In true Full Tilt style all of the FTOPS events will be backed by a comprehensive range of satellites, including a special satellite challenge!
 
The aim of the challenge is simple. Win as many entries to a given event as possible. For every additional satellite you win to an event, Full Tilt will credit your account with T$ equal to the tournament entry. The person who manages to win the most entries to a particular event will receive the T$ equivalent of two more buy-ins for that tournament. The player who wins the second most entries will receive the T$ equivalent of one more tournament buy-in.
 
More exciting for the lower stakes player is the addition of the MiniFTOPS which will mirror the FTOPS series but events will cost a tenth of the regular series buy-in. The MiniFTOPS series will guarantee US$2 million dollars in prizes and is a great opportunity for players of all backgrounds to try their luck at FTOPS loot.
 
The MiniFTOPS series will boast its own Leaderboard and the winning player will receive a special prize package which includes entry to every FTOPS XIII event (except the Two-Day Event). The prize package is expected to be worth approximately US$7,500 in tournament entries.
 
Both series are full of added value with Full Tilt throwing out a range of prop challenges such as winning with various hands in Hold‘em or making the money in a set number of events.  Full details on these prop challenges are available at Full Tilt Poker.
