With the winter months drawing nearer and nearer, people across the country are gearing up for a long, cold winter. Full Tilt Poker, however, is betting that they can cure the winter blues.
Hot off the seventeenth running of the popular Full Tilt Online Poker Series, the company has put the finishing touches on plans for the next episode. With an impressive roster of 34 events, FTOPS XVIII will hot a prize pool over over $19,000,000 in guaranteed cash.
Action kicks off on November 10 at 21:00 ET, with the $200 + $16 No Limit Hold’em action of Event 1. With an impressive $800,000 guaranteed up for grabs, it will be a fitting way to get the ball rolling.
But beyond the standard tournament fair, Full Tilt has plenty of games which should keep things interesting. Besides their Knockout, Shootout, and Turbo/Super Turbo events, they will also host a massive two-day poker marathon with a guaranteed prize pool of $2,000,000. There will also be seven separate Rush Poker tournaments, giving gamers the chance to win big in a short amount of time.
One of the biggest components of the FTOPS allure comes in the form of their prizes. Every player who makes a final table in any one of the series’ 34 events will receive a limited-edition FTOPS jacket, with the eventual winners also earning a gold FTOPS jersey, along with a new avatar to match. But that’s not where the action ends. The player who tops the event’s leaderboard will win a custom Full Tilt Poker avatar, along with entry into nearly every event in the nineteenth FTOPS running.
For those who finish just out of the money, Full Tilt has found a way to show their appreciation. The bubble player in each of the 34 events will receive entry into an exclusive Bouncebackability Freeroll, which will feature one entry into the FTOPS XIX Main Event. Taking place on November 27 at 15:00 ET, this freeroll tournament should provide some manner of relief to the sting of elimination.
