Full Tilt Poker Skills Challenge - Thursday Heads-Up Event $2,500 Added

Posted at 17:22 2011-03-30

The Full Tilt Skills Challenge Online League is starting to heat up with the leaderboard starting to fill up and thousands of dollars of cash already given away. However it’s certainly not too late to join and grab your share to earn your place in the league final as only your top five points results count for leaderboard rankings. A big finish in any of the remaining events should be enough to qualify into the top 200.

Every Thursday morning you can compete with other PokerNetwork/PokerNews players for a share of $55,000 in added cash and prizes. You’ll get points from every event which will qualify you for the final and a place in our massive $20,000 Championship Final Freeroll.

Last week saw 296 players enter a $5 Rush Poker event which had $3,000 added cash on top of the prize pool. The eventual winner was "reRomeo" of Russia, who picked up $918.40 for the win.

The top finishers in each of the following events get League points that count toward the $3,200 League Final Freeroll and the $20,000 Championship Freeroll.

Fast-Track Your Way to the $20,000 Freeroll

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

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

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.

Next Event

The next event in the series is a $5+$0.50 Turbo Heads-Up Shootout event which will be held this Thursday at 6am AEDST with $2,500 added to the prize pool. The tournament ID is 221086127.

So download Full Tilt Poker today, create a new account and make a deposit to test your skills in our Full Tilt Poker Skills Challenge. New players will also be able to take advantage of PokerNetwork’s 100% up to $600 welcome bonus plus entry into a $100,000 First Depositors Freeroll using Full Tilt Bonus Code PKRNETWORK.
