Full Tilt Fever: Still Time to Satellite into FTOPS X

Share this
It is almost here. The tenth running of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) is just around the corner. With 25 events on tap and more than $15 million in prize money up for grabs! The time is now to win a satellite entry into one of the tournaments and shoot for online poker fame.

FTOPS X is set to begin on November 5 and continue through November 16. All of the events included will be hosted by a Full Tilt Pro and boast of a guaranteed prize pool. And considering the last installment of the FTOPS catapulted over the cumulative prize pool by several million dollars, the likelihood is that this one will do the same. It will be a series of tournaments with some of the most well-known poker players in the business competing against the average Joe or Jane for what is, in most cases, life-changing money.

The very first event on November 5th will be the $200 + $16 No-Limit Hold’em six-max tournament with a $1 million guarantee. Mike Matusow will play in the event while hosting it. Every subsequent day will bring two to three tournaments for players to choose from, all leading up to the big one - the $500 + $35 NLHE Main Event that will determine the player who will take the position of reigning FTOPS champion.

Have you registered for your tournament(s) of choice yet? No?

It is true that some of the buy-ins are a bit steep for the average player. Full Tilt Poker recognizes that and gives players multiple opportunities to play in satellites to win their seats for less than the price of a Starbucks coffee. And for just a few dollars, anyone can parlay that small investment into a few hundred thousand dollars, not to mention the status of being an FTOPS event winner and receiving a gold FTOPS jersey.

Full Tilt Poker gives satellite players even more chances to cash in during FTOPS X with the FTOPS X Satellite Challenge. Sure, if a player wins a satellite, he or she wins a seat into the FTOPS event at stake. But for every additional satellite won for that particular event, your Full Tilt account will be credited with tournament dollars equal to that tournament entry. As an example, by winning two satellites for Event 1, you will win a seat and have $216 in tournament dollars for any future tournaments - not necessarily FTOPS events - of your choosing.

At the time of this article submission, one player by the name of “The Fiend 34” has won 72 satellites into Event 1. Considering the event is a $216 buy-in, said player will not only be playing in the event but has $15,336 in tournament dollars in his or her account. Since “The Fiend 34” is likely to win more entries into Event 1 than any other player, he or she will also win the equivalent of two more buy-ins in tournament dollars. Now that is the way to win a challenge!

The first step to getting in on all of the FTOPS X action is setting up a Full Tilt Poker account. By downloading here, you can establish an account on one of the most prominent poker sites in the business. And by using the bonus code “POKERWORKS” when making that first deposit, you will receive a 100% bonus on any dollar amount up to $600.

FTOPS X begins on November 5th, so don’t let another day go by without gearing up for the daddy of all online poker tournament series!
