This Week At FTR IconIt’s that time of the week again, where we justify the exorbitant sum we charge here at ($0.00) to you, our dedicated poker clan. We’ve brought together not only events happening under the FTR Banner, but also those we think should be of interest to you.


FTR Exclusive Tournaments

We have two exclusive tournaments for you this week, one for the Canadians and Americans, and one for the rest of the world. The Canadians get to play in both, so someone must have been good in a previous life.

Wednesday sees the FTR PokerStars Direct sign up Freeroll, with $250 guaranteed. This is a way to say thank you to those of you who signed up to PokerStars through FTR, and the only additional requirement to qualify is earning 250 FPPs in the previous month.

For those who signed up through us, and earned 250 points in July, the Freeroll is starting at 21:00BST (16:00EST) and will be shown in the “Private” tab on the PokerStars client. If you need more information, click the link.

The other event for the week is the Bodog/Bovada $490 added event, also on Wednesday. This event is open to FTR Qualified Members only, and is password protected. You can get access to the password by following the link below. The Tournament starts at 20:05EST, and the buy in is a mere $3.30, so you’re going to get very good value.

More details are available here.


America’s Cardroom Offering Reload Bonus

Americas Cardroom is offering Players a new reload bonus that’s only available until the end on this Tuesday. You need to reload your account before then to take advantage of the 50% bonus, up to $300.

The bonus will be issued in $5 chunks, each of which take 120 Status Points to release. You’ll need to use the Bonus Code “FAST300” to qualify. More information is available here.


FTOPS XXIII has already started

The twenty third FTOPS series has already started on Full Tilt Poker, and with at least $8 Million up for grabs, it’s going to be a hell of series for some lucky guys.

Fashion is also going to be raising it’s head at the final tables, as every player who makes a final table in the series is going to be in line to receive a limited edition FTOPS Jacket, and as usual, the winner of an event will get the coveted yellow jersey.

Free $5 for all new Full Tilt Signups

Are you one of the poker players that hasn’t got an account at Full Tilt Poker? Want to try out the software before you start playing with your own money?

If you sign up through FTR, if you start out playing Play Money games, you can pick up a free $5 worth of Sit and Go tickets. All you need to do is cash in one of the Play Money New To The Game (NTTG) Sit and Gos, and you’ll get a ticket. If you cash 8 times, you’ll get the full $5, and have a start on your career at Full Tilt Poker. This offer is only available in August, so if you want to take advantage, sooner rather than later is the key mantra.

Well, that’s your lot for this week, not that I think you’ll have too many complaints. If you have any questions, pop over to the thread on the forum and I’ll see what I can do about answering it. Until then, I’m off to enjoy what’s left the summer, and see if I can turn this pasty skinned flabby body into something a Greek god would be proud of.
