This Week At FTR IconIt’s the middle of August, the weather is great (hopefully, I imagine we have readers from several climates here – I hope you Australians are enjoying your winter 🙂 ) and we’ve got another weekly update to kick off the week.

Pokerstars FTR250 – $250 Added

It may still be 11 days until our monthly Pokerstars private tournament with $250 added, but if you want to play time is starting to run out already! Access is only available to our “Qualified Members”, and with fields averaging just 10 to 20 runners this is not a tournament you want to miss!

How do I get access I hear you ask? Simple – contribute to our forum! All we ask in return for hundreds of dollars added every month is for you to improve your poker game or make some friends 🙂 Quality posts are the only requirement to enter the club, and these can be in any of our subforums; chat about your favourite TV shows, share your favourite receipes, or stick in the strategy subforums by posting hands asking for advice or giving it out yourself.

We look forward to seeing you in our forum!

Full Tilt Poker Promotions

Full Tilt have two top promotions which kick off today. You can see the full details in our forum in these threads:

Satellite Hero
Build Your Bonus

Satellite Hero involves $4,000 in free prizes for tournament players – satellite into scheduled tournaments and you’ll get automatic entry into a freeroll with MiniFTOPS tickets galore. You’ll also get a free tournament ticket every time you satellite into a tournament with 100 players or more and reach the final table!

Build Your Bonus essentially gives all cash players a reload bonus, up to a massive $400. The more you play (and the more days you earn a Full Tilt Point on) the bigger your bonus is, and the longer you have to clear it.

A free holiday for Americans!

Fear not Americans, apologies for boring you with talk of Full Tilt and Pokerstars promotions. If you aren’t bored of summer yet (and if you are, maybe it’s time to move to Alaska?) there’s not one but two great promotions for the big main event down in Punta Cana.

The Bovada Promotion (click here) offers $150 in cash bonuses as well as entries into a draw to win a package worth $5,500 for free. The America’s Cardroom promotion (click here) is a very well structured series of satellites and super satellites where, if your cards fall right, you can earn a $4,100 package for free by winning just 3 tournaments in a row! They also have a huge up coming Super Satellite (on the 8th of September) which is only $55 to play and has a massive 10 Packages up for grabs. With an all-inclusive Caribbean holiday to go with your Main Event entry, it’s the holiday of a lifetime!
