Full Tilt Fever: FTOPS XVII Starts August 4

Share this
It is that time again! Another Full Tilt Online Poker Series is upon us, and the poker world couldn’t be more ready. The last FTOPS took place in April, and with a few months off for things like summer and the World Series of Poker, online poker is again the place to be for the 17th running of the ever-popular Full Tilt Poker tournament series.

FTOPS XVII looks to be the biggest and brightest ever. After its launch in 2006 with a $1 million combined guarantee, the 17th FTOPS will be offering the most in its history with 34 tournaments and $19 million in guarantees. The Main Event will also be the biggest ever with a $3 million guarantee, and six of the tournaments will be in the Rush Poker format, including PLO and NLHE events, one of the latter even being a rebuy. Throw in some turbo and super turbo tournaments, a two-day extravaganza, and a Full Tilt Pro as the host of each event, and a stellar series is in the works.

As always, there are many ways to win in FTOPS XVII. Obviously, there are the millions of dollars in prize money available to those who cash, final table, and win events, but there are also other prizes. Anyone making a final table of a tournament will be shipped a limited-edition FTOPS jacket, and the winner of each event will also receive a gold FTOPS jersey along with a personalized gold jersey avatar for future use on Full Tilt. In addition, the overall leaderboard winner who accumulates the most points for a substantial FTOPS performance will win an avatar as well as a prize package worth about $10,000 in tournament entries for nearly every FTOPS XVIII event later in the year.

And there is more. For those players who try their hardest but find themselves eliminated on the bubble of an FTOPS event, just shy of making the money, they will be awarded an entry into the Bouncebackability Freeroll tournament, a chance for redemption. The freeroll tournament will be held on August 21, after the conclusion of FTOPS XVII, and will give players a chance to win an entry into the FTOPS XVIII Main Event.

The festivities are set to begin on Wednesday, August 4 with a $200 + $16 no-limit hold’em event with a $750K guarantee, and the action will continue with tournaments each day until the Main Event, which will get underway on Sunday, August 15. The finale will be a $600 + $40 NLHE tournament with the aforementioned $3 million guarantee.

Though there is a little time before FTOPS XVII gets underway, satellites are running now. Why pay full price to play in the tournaments when there are numerous ways to qualify for a fraction of the price? There are Steps tournaments running now, allowing players to win their seats by working their way through the steps, starting with only a few dollars or points. But to do so, one needs to have an account. To get started, download Full Tilt Poker now, use the bonus code “POKERWORKS” to qualify for a 100% bonus through regular site play, and take your chance on FTOPS XVII fame and fortune!
