If you love online poker as much as we do, your ears should perk up at the very mention of the upcoming FTOPS XVI tournament series.
Full Tilt’s amazing online extravaganza is set to return in late April, with several improvements to the structure and setup. After a successful 27 event run in February, the online poker giant will kick off FTOPS XVI on April 23, with a full slate of 30 events.
They’re also raising the stakes by a full $1 million, up from $17M to $18M in guaranteed prizes.
As in the past, each of the 30 events will be hosted by a Full Tilt Pro. Among the options offered are Knockout, Shootout, Turbo, and Super Turbo tournaments. FTOPS XVI will also feature a Two Day Event, with a guaranteed prize pool of $2 million.
Besides the big paydays, Full Tilt is offering players even more incentives. Every player who makes a final table in any event will receive a limited edition FTOPS jacket. Event winners will also receive a gold FTOPS jersey, and an exclusive gold avatar for use on FullTilt.com.
The biggest of the scheduled dances will be the $3 million FTOPS XVI Main Event, which will kick off on Sunday, May 2 at 18:00 ET. It will be a $600+$40 NLHE contest, with a host yet to be determined. Judging by the importance of the event, players can expect all of the big names to participate. Don’t be surprised if the host is someone like Chris Ferguson, Gus Hansen, or (most likely) Phil Ivey.
Excited yet? Mark Friday, April 23 on your calender. The FTOPS XVI experience kicks off at 14:00 ET with a $200+$16 NLHE tournament, with $750,000 in guaranteed money.
Players who lack the funds to buy directly into their chosen events can still find their way into the action. Check out the FTOPS XVI Satellite Challenge for your shot to earn gaming glory.
