Full Tilt Series kicks off Wednesday

6th May, 2008

The Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) returns this week for the eighth time with a massive 24-event tournament schedule.

Event No 1, which kicks off tomorrow (May 6th) is a $200 (100) buy-in six-handed no-limit Texas Hold'Em tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $750,000.

Satellites are underway for that event now but the most hotly anticipated event will be the epic $2,500 buy-in $1.5 million Guaranteed, which will take place May 17 - 18th.

Another bumper prize pool of $2 million will be on offer in the Main Event, which takes place on May 18th, while there are even three mystery events slated for the series.

A Full Tilt spokesperson said that the events would be "unlike anything FTOPS has ever seen before".

To mark the launch of the series, Full Tilt is also running the Bouncebackability freeroll - a novel runner-up poker tournament exclusively for players who miss out on cash payouts by one place.
