Full Tilt Fever - Enroll in Full Tilt Poker Academy

Share this
It has been a long time in the making, and after years of putting the best minds in the poker industry to work, Full Tilt Poker Academy has been launched. Poker fans and players from around the world are now welcome to attend the Academy by logging on and tapping into the lessons that have been recorded by some of the best players to ever have graced the poker felt.

There are educational poker websites on the internet that boast of one or two names that may be familiar, and membership typically costs an initial fee plus monthly payments. Full Tilt Poker Academy offers something completely different.

First, Full Tilt Poker Academy is a free educational resource. A simple log-in using one’s Full Tilt Poker name and password is all that is required to begin the process, and if visitors to the site do not yet have them, it takes only moments to sign up. The bonus to having Academy and FTP accounts that coincide is that during the learning process at the Academy, one can earn credits, Full Tilt Points, tournament tokens, and cash to be applied to the FTP account. It will certainly pay off for anyone who takes the Academy seriously and looks to participate fully.

Second, the list of names associated with Full Tilt Poker Academy is a stellar one. The members of Team Full Tilt alone are impressive - Chris Ferguson, Phil Ivey, Howard Lederer, Jennifer Harman, Erick Lindgren, Erik Seidel, Andy Bloch, Phil Gordon, John Juanda, Mike Matusow, Gus Hansen, Allen Cunningham, and Patrik Antonius. That group alone boasts of more than $82 million in tournament earnings throughout their careers, which includes 35 World Series of Poker bracelets and 12 World Poker Tour victories. But add to that list the multitude of Full Tilt Poker Pros and Friends of FTP, such as Kristy Gazes, Paul Wasicka, Bill Edler, and recent NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship winner Huck Seed, and that provides the most well-rounded and accomplished set of instructors ever to teach the game.

Lederer stated, “I’m excited to share my insights and experiences with the Full Tilt Poker community, and to watch all of my fellow pros’ videos and learn from them as well. With this extraordinary line-up of teachers, the best poker education in the world is at Full Tilt Poker Academy.”

And Gordon added, “The Full Tilt philosophy has always been built around the idea of breaking down the barriers between the so-called ‘star’ pros and the rest of the poker community. Full Tilt Poker Academy continues that tradition, and is the ultimate in combining education with entertainment for poker players of all skill levels.”

One of the most exciting parts of Full Tilt Poker Academy is its range of games included in instructional pieces. With everything from the always popular no-limit hold’em to exciting pot-limit Omaha, there are variations within those games, such as heads-up to full nine-handed tables, single-table tournaments and multi-tables to cash games, and no-limit and pot-limit to limit games.

The site offers multiple videos hosted by the many Full Tilt Poker pros associated with the project, as well as interesting features like the “Test Your Skills” section of the site that allows you to accept a challenge from a pro. That challenge involves a list of tasks to complete, such as playing particularly hands on a Full Tilt Poker table and allowing the action to be scored. By learning the lessons of the pros and scoring high on the challenges, credits can be accumulated for use in the Full Tilt Poker Academy store or toward tournament entries.

There are also interactive “Sit-n-Learn” lessons that feature quizzes that play off video hints from the associated pros. Quiz scores allow students to earn points on the leaderboard, and the higher one positions himself or herself on that board, the better the opportunity to gain entry into Academy-only freerolls on Full Tilt Poker.

New information will be uploaded on a daily basis to Full Tilt Poker Academy, so there will always be something new and fresh to learn. And speaking of learning, the lessons are not only available in English but 19 other languages, including Chinese, Italian, French, Spanish, Russian, German, Japanese, and the Scandinavian languages.

Full Tilt Poker Academy is an exciting project that has been established for the benefit of the millions of Full Tilt Poker players worldwide. Why not take advantage of the ultimate learning experience, one that can only improve your game and bankroll?

In order to gain the most from Full Tilt Poker Academy, first sign up for your FTP account so points from challenges and play can be properly credited to your account. Download Full Tilt Poker and use the bonus code “POKERWORKS” to earn a 100% bonus on any deposit amount up to $600. Then head over to Full Tilt Poker Academy to immediately take your game to a new level!
