Full Tilt Fever: FTOPS XI Fun Begins This Week, Satellites Still Running

Share this
The time has already come for the most recent installment of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series. With the last one wrapping in November of 2008, FTOPS XI is ready for everyone who has been anxiously awaiting the next opportunity to take one of the coveted online poker tournament titles. The events kick off on February 4th, and 25 tournaments will ensue with more than $15 million in guarantees.

To win an FTOPS title puts players in an elite group of winners, each of whom has won thousands - even hundreds of thousands, in some cases - of dollars, not to mention the coveted FTOPS jacket, FTOPS gold jersey, and matching avatar for use on Full Tilt Poker. In the tenth installment of FTOPS alone, there were 47,699 players, and a great number of them divvied up the $17,457,500 in prize money.

In a difficult economic time, that kind of money sounds even sweeter than usual. But speaking of economic woes, Full Tilt Poker understands that everyone is not able to plunk down hundreds of dollars in buy-ins for the chance to cash in on the millions at stake. Sure, the investment is a sound one if players have the skills to accept the challenge, but many have the skills but not the bankroll to support the FTOPS tournaments.

Full Tilt Poker has the answer. Satellite tournaments are running around the clock for FTOPS events. For as much as a few dollars or a small collection of Full Tilt points, anyone can work their way through the qualifier system and win coveted entries into any of the 25 FTOPS tournaments.

There are also bonuses involved with the process, aptly named the FTOPS XI Satellite Challenge. Not only will you win entries into the tournaments, but for each additional satellite you win for a particular event, you get tournament dollars in your account that equal that tournament entry. Since you can only play each event once, Full Tilt Poker will reward your extended satellite efforts with tournament dollars that can be used in the future on any tournament, not necessarily during FTOPS.

In addition, if you are the player who wins more entries to a particular FTOPS event than anyone else, you will receive tournament dollars equal to two more of those buy-ins. The second place qualifier wins one extra buy-in amount. Currently, “The Field 34” is leading the pack with 79 satellite entries for Event 1 of FTOPS. Yes, 79! It just goes to show what dedication and poker skills can do.

With the start of FTOPS very close, here is another rundown of the events:
