Full Tilt Poker has some fun promotions during the festival to keep you in action: If you bust from events 1, 10, 12, 14, 17, or the Main Event without making the cash — and have a valid Full Tilt Poker, and are wearing a Full Tilt Poker patch — you are going to win a ticket into the exclusive $25,000 Second Barrel Freeroll held on Sunday, October 13th at 19:00 EDT; every tournament you bust in without reaching the cash will get you a ticket.

If you make the Main Event final table, you'll score a Full Tilt Poker custom jacket along with your own custom avatar to use online at Full Tilt Poker and winning the event would give you the coveted trophy and the cash! NOTE: You must opt in at the Information Desk before the start of the tournament, have a valid Full Tilt Poker account and wear Full Tilt Poker patches throughout the event to be eligible for the Full Tilt Poker promotions.
