Welcome back to This Week at FlopTurnRiver.com, where we do our best to bring you little gems of added value. I’m sure you have already found the regular strategy videos, and other bits of strategy gold, but here we bring you the more unusual added bonues of joining this site.
European Poker Tour Live Stream on FTR
We have the PokerStars sponsored EPT coverage from Barcalona, and you’re able to keep up to date with the action from one of the most beautiful cities in Europe in the company of Joe “Stapes Stapleton, James “No Nickname” Hartigan, Matt “The Waster” Broughton and new permanent member of the team Marc “The Conv” Convey. Convey has been a writer on the EPT, and other tours, for a few years, and has been a guest commentator on the live stream for a while.
The action has already gone through the Super High Roller, but the Main Event will be running all this week. Just follow this link to catch up on the action.
MiniFTOPS face off against WCOOP
Sunday sees the two branches of the Rational Group of poker sites, PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, pit two festivals against each other. Not that these festivals are aimed at the same people. The Full Tilt MiniFTOPS has smaller buy ins, and is aimed at the more recreational player, with the buy ins ranging from $10 + $1 to $200 + $20. The buy ins for PokerStars’ WCOOP on the other hand start at $109 and go up to a stonking $10,300 for some of the high roller events.
The two series have traditionally created massive prizepools, and we’re expecting some massive fields during these festivals.
WCOOP Brings Reload Bonus
Pokerstars are offering players a chance to make the most of playing the WCOOP. If you deposit to play the series using the code WCOOP, you’ll instantly get a bonus of 25% of your deposit credited to your account.
The bonus clears at 20vpps per $1, and you can earn up to an extra $150. The minimum deposit is $20.
I’m off to go couch diving to see how much I can find to put on my PokerStars account, but if you have any questions about this week’s post, head over to the forum post and I’ll see if I can answer it.
