At Least $8 million up for Grabs During FTOPS xxIII, Starting Sunday

Full Tilt Poker’s flagship series returns with new and exclusive tournament formats

Onchan, Isle of Man – Kicking off this Sunday, August 4th, the latest Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) features a combined prize pool of at least $8 million, 39 events and a wider range of tournament formats than ever before.

As well as competing for a cut of the big guaranteed prize pools, players will battle it out for a place in FTOPS history by becoming the first 5-Card Omaha, Courchevel or 6-Card Omaha event winner.

A returning FTOPS favorite, the $1,000,000 Two-Day Event will start on Saturday, August 17th and will feature a Multi-Entry Tournament format. The series will conclude with the massive FTOPS XXIII Main Event, which runs Sunday, August 18th and has a $1,500,000 guaranteed prize pool.

There is more to play for than a share of the prize pool – players who reach the final table of any FTOPS XXIII event will receive a limited-edition FTOPS jacket, while winners will also get a gold FTOPS jersey and a gold-jersey avatar. The player who tops the FTOPS XXIII Leaderboard will be rewarded with a unique custom avatar and entry to every FTOPS XXIV event (excluding the Two-Day Event) – a prize worth approximately $11,000.

“FTOPS is Full Tilt Poker’s Flagship tournament series,” says Sarne Lightman, Head of Marketing at Full Tilt Poker. “With $8 million guaranteed across 39 events, featuring over 30 different game formats and poker varieties, this is the ultimate test for any online poker player.”

Direct buy-ins to FTOPS XXIII events start from $100 + $9, or players can satellite in for a fraction of the cost.
