How many times in your online poker playing career have you had the opportunity to play in a $20,000 FREEROLL with only 199 other runners trying to beat you out??? Think about that one! There are Freerolls and there are freerolls but the Skills Challenge League at Full Tilt Poker not only gives you numerous shots at low level buy-in guaranteed tournaments along the way but shots at two freerolls at the end, one of them is $20,000.
The Skills Challenge League started on February 23rd with a new event kicking off on every Wednesday - each event varied with a variety of buy-ins (one was a freeroll), money added varies, top scorers receive points, and there is always cash to be won. Now there are four Wednesday events left, the next one is the 23rd, and if you haven't already started playing the Skills Challenge League, you need to start this Wednesday.
Not only is there a lot of cash at stake as you play through the events but the League Final is a FREEROLL with $3,200 money added for the top 32 players of the league only (points scorers) and if you're in the top 15 players of the League Final Freeroll, you receive a Ticket to the $750,000 Guaranteed at Full Tilt Poker. The League Final happens on April 20th. The top 200 players in the final league standing earn a seat into the $20,000 Championship Final Freeroll on May 1st.
Some events will find top finishers scoring more points than other events; each event has a points multiplying factor. The following chart breaks down the points awarded and the prizes, and dates:
