The fourteenth Full Tilt Series of Poker begins in under a week and scores of competitors are online now, honing their MTT skills. This weekend, Full Tilt are offering everyone a cut-price chance to practice their game in a one-off guaranteed event. The FTOPS XIV Warm-Up takes place on Sunday, with a guaranteed prize pool of $250,000.
On November 4th thousands of players will flock to Full Tilt to experience Event #1 in the FTOPS XIV schedule. The $200 + $16 No Limit Hold ‘em tournament has a huge $1 million guaranteed, juts a small slice of over $16 million put up by Full Tilt over the whole series. Playing big tournaments for big money is not something you do every day, and many of the satellite entrants will be looking for an opportunity to properly prepare for their upcoming endeavor.
The FTOPS XIV Warm Up presents just such an opportunity. On Sunday November 1st at 15:05 ET, up to 50,000 players will join together to compete for a prize pool of at least $250,000. This guarantee is bigger than some of the actual FTOPS events, but features a buy in of only $5 + $0.50. Even if you aren’t planning to compete in the FTOPS, you’d be mad to miss out on such a great value tournament.
There is no chance the prize pool will exceed this huge guarantee, as the field is capped at 50,000 players. This means that only in the case where the player cap is reached will there be no added value. To get in on the event, load up your Full Tilt client and navigate to the Tournaments sections. A click on the FTOPS button should reveal a line-up full of events and satellites. You can refine your search by specifying No-Limit and Low Stakes. It is worth remembering that the Warm Up is not a fully fledged FTOPS event and so won’t count towards any challenges or leaderboard contests.
