$55,000 Skills Challenge at Full Tilt Poker

Share this

Poker is Skill and we know you have the drive, the skill, and the good sense to accept the $55,000 PokerWorks' Skills Challenge starting at Full Tilt Poker. The $55,000 Skills Challenge is a series that brings low stakes players an incredible opportunity to play in a $55,000 added skill league that finishes with a big bang - a $20,000 Freeroll.

The Skill League starts on February 23rd and runs until April 20th; every week will feature one league event - held every Wednesday - with $1,000-$5,000 added to every prize pool.  

League points that count towards the League Final Freeroll and $20,000 Championship Final Freeroll will be awarded to the top 64 players. As an added teaser some events will find the top finishers scoring more points than other events and each event will have a points multiplying factor.

Finish in the top 32 players in the league and you'll receive a ticket into the League Final Freeroll on April 20th where 15 seats will be awarded to the Full Tilt $750,000 Guaranteed.

The top 200 players in the league standing will have a seat in the $20,000 Championship Final Freeroll on May 1st.  The Championship Final Freeroll is a 'must play' since it is one of the most exclusive and biggest single freerolls ever.
