Full Tilt Poker Online Poker Series Underway
This weekend saw the start of the latest running of the Full Tilt Poker Online Poker Series (FTOPS). This popular series of online poker tournaments is now in its 24th edition and is expected to once again attract large fields hoping to land a big prize. The first two events took place yesterday and both of them exceeded the guarantees.
First up was the $200 No Limit Hold’em Re-Entry Tournament, which drew a field of 2851. The winner of that, “PrishChips31”, took home a prize of just over $100,000. Next up was the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em 6-Max. Understandably the higher buy in meant less runners, but there was still a respectable field of 427. The top prize of $93,000 was won by “philbort”.
In total there will be 39 taking events during this FTOPS and there is over $8 million in guaranteed prizes. The series finishes on December 8th, culminating in the Main Event which has a $600 buy in and has a guaranteed prize pool of $1.5 million. Satellites to this tournament, and all the FTOPS tournaments, are taking place regularly at Full Tilt.
During the series there is a leaderboard running, with players awarded points based on their finishing positions in tournaments. The outright winner of the leaderboard will receive a customized Full Tilt Poker avatar and six-month sponsorship contract as a Black “Card Pro.”
