Many of the members of Team Full Tilt and quite a few of the Full Tilt pros are well-known for their cash game and tournament skills, sometimes at the highest limits the game offers. And the best of the Full Tilt team is now looking to play the ultimate six-person sit-n-go, ten times over ten weeks, in front of television cameras. The kicker is that a qualifier will sit in one of those seats on eight of those ten weeks and compete for a $120K winner-take-all prize.
The Poker Lounge is the newest concept to come from the minds at Full Tilt Poker. With a television show in place, ready to begin airing on June 21 on Channel 4 in the U.K., the Poker Lounge will be providing excitement from some of the biggest names in the game of poker while giving every player the opportunity to win a seat in the game and on the show.
The Poker Lounge will consist of 10 sit-n-go’s played in an exclusive London poker venue behind closed doors. Each of the Full Tilt pros that sit down for the games will buy in for $20K each. Six players equal a $120K first place prize for the table’s winner. And all ten games will be filmed for broadcast on Channel 4 from June 21 through August 23.
And the best part is that one qualifier will be put in the game - the $20K buy-in courtesy of Full Tilt Poker - for eight of the ten shows. Those lucky players will compete against the likes of Phil Ivey, Gus Hansen, and other Team Full Tilt members for big money and big fame.
Numerous opportunities are available starting…well…now. There are qualifiers running for as little as $10, as well as $600 + $40 direct qualifier tournaments at 2:30pm ET on most Sundays now through July 4. One prize package worth $22,000 will be awarded in each of the tournaments on April 4, 11, 18, 25, and May 2, and those winners will fly to London to play in the games to take place on the weekend of May 14. And more packages will be given away on May 23, June 13, and July 4, and those players will compete in London on the weekend of July 24.
How do you get in on the Poker Lounge action? It starts with a simple download of Full Tilt Poker to set up an account if you don’t already have one. And when establishing that new account with a deposit, use the bonus code “POKERWORKS” to qualify for a 100% bonus on any amount up to $600.
Next, head to the Lobby menu and using the Standard View, find Tournaments, then Live Events, and look for the highest levels. The green color-coded events are labeled “Poker Lounge Qualifier” and will get you in the running for one of the most coveted prize packages in all of online poker.
Take a chance! This is the ultimate sit-n-go, against the best players in the world, and $120K on the line!
