Full Tilt is bringing things back to the old school–to the “good old days”–with the launch of a new online championship of poker: Full Tilt Classic.
The event series, taking place from Feb. 15 – 22, is eight days of action encompassing 16 freezeout tournaments. The series will features two daily deep-stack tournaments–one No Limit Hold’em event and one alternative game type-–with buy-ins ranging from $0.50 on the first day all the way up to the $100 Main Event on Feb. 22, which offers a guaranteed $200K prize pool.
Dominic Mansour, Managing Director at Full Tilt, had this to say about the new tournament series:
“The Full Tilt Classic has it all–deep-stack tournaments, a wide range of buy-ins, daily freerolls, and extra prizes that offer great value to players. It’s time for players to rediscover the joy of pure tournament action – the kind of events that got people playing poker in the first place.”
The series will showcase the new overhaul to Full Tilt’s tournament offerings, which includes standardized buy-ins for multi-table tournaments and SNGs, and a slew of new satellites. Click here for the full schedule and more information.
