Set up your own Private Tournament and get in the running for tournament buy-ins, a custom avatar, and have your own Private Tournament added to the regular Full Tilt Poker schedule when you become the Tournament Tycoon. The fun started on Monday, July 1st, and runs through Wednesday, July 31st, 2013, and every player that plays in qualifying Private Tournaments has a shot at winning 100 Tournament Dollars.
Become a Tournament Tycoon
Find 10 or more players to join in the action and set up and play a private tournament; this could get you your buy-in back of up to $50+$5. If you can create the most popular tournament, it will be added to Full Tilt Poker's regular tournament schedule, and since you made the magic happen, you'll receive tournament tickets to the value of 10 buy-ins and a special avatar. You get to choose your avatar and it will be customized with a top hat and monocle as an exclusive Tournament Tycoon.
Players who play Private Tournaments during the month of July, will have a shot at winning T$100 when 10 lucky players are randomly selected at the start of August to receive this prize. Use Tournament Dollars to enter any real money tournament or Sit & Go.
