Full Tilt Fever: Are You Ready for FTOPS XVI?

Share this
Full Tilt Poker understands that April is a big month. Several poker tours wrap their seasons at the end of the month, and players begin their serious planning for the upcoming World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. And what’s the best way to wind down from the live circuit and prepare for the excitement of the WSOP? Online poker tournaments! Thus, FTOPS XVI is on the schedule.

Starting April 23 and running for ten days, the Full Tilt Online Poker Series gives players the chance at more than $18 million guaranteed in the 30 tournaments. Earlier this year, the fifteenth edition of FTOPS awarded more than $17 million, and FTOPS XVI has added more events and more money in order to make this the most exciting series to date. With a Full Tilt Pro hosting each event and a wide range of pro and amateur players mixing it up on the virtual tables, action is guaranteed and excitement is inevitable.

The series kicks off with three tournaments on April 23, and Event 1 offers a $750K guarantee for the $200 + $16 no-limit hold’em event. A super turbo short-handed NLHE follows later that afternoon, as does a short-handed limit hold’em event. Throughout FTOPS XVI, players will have options of buy-ins - ranging from the $100 + $9 rebuys to the $2,000 + $100 NLHE - and quite a few variations of poker, such as razz, PLO, stud, and mixed games. Heads-up tournaments welcome players with a specialty in that area, and shootouts and knockouts add some extra zing to those particular events. And it will all wrap up on Sunday, May 2, with the $600 + $40 NLHE Main Event that boasts of a $3 million guarantee.

FTOPS offers tens of millions of dollars in prize money as well as other prizes. Those who make it to final tables will receive a limited-edition FTOPS jacket, and winners will also receive a gold FTOPS jersey and gold jersey avatar to use for future play on Full Tilt Poker. Winners will also be automatically entered into the FTOPS Tournament of Champions, an elite tournament to take place on May 8 and award a $10,000 seat into the upcoming 2010 WSOP Main Event.

And ultimately, the winner of the Leaderboard Challenge will take home a unique prize package worth more than $9,000 that offers entries into nearly every FTOPS XVII event later in 2010.

Numerous challenges are set up for players, so that by completing certain tasks during FTOPS play, they win tournament buy-ins and freeroll seats. And the winner of the Leaderboard Challenge will take home a unique prize package worth more than $9,000 that offers entries into nearly every FTOPS XVII event later in 2010. And don’t forget the Bouncebackability freeroll, a tournament saved for all players who are eliminated on the money bubble in any FTOPS XVI event. That May 8th freeroll will award a buy-in to the FTOPS XVII Main Event.

So many ways to win, cash, and get in on the FTOPS excitement… But in order to begin, there’s one thing that must be done. Download Full Tilt Poker now and set up an account. Use the bonus code “POKERWORKS” to qualify for a 100% bonus on any deposit up to $600, and get to working on that bonus by warming up for FTOPS XVI tournaments.
