Full Tilt Poker is getting ready to kick off their MiniFTOPS XV this week. The smaller version of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series begins this week on March 11th and will see the same events at the FTOPS but with 1/10th the buy-in.
The miniature tournament is always a hit with players at Full Tilt as the buy-ins are small but the prize pools are still a good size. This tournament series will have twenty seven events and offer over $6 million in guaranteed prize pools. But if a good number of players compete, the total prize money could reach high above the $6 million guaranteed!
The buy-ins are small compared to the FTOPS but if you still cannot afford the buy-in, you can try your luck at satellites which start at just $0.50 or 50 Full Tilt Points. The MiniFTOPS XV will not only be offering cash prizes they will also be offering prizes as well. Those who make the final table will earn a limited edition MiniFTOPS jacket. Winners of the events will earn a jacket plus a silver MiniFTOPS jersey.
The leader board has also returned and the player at the top of the leader board will earn a special prize package. This package includes entry into every FTOPS XVI event except the two day event. This is worth $8,500 in tournament entries.
There is also the MiniFTOPS Challenges. The site will have four challenges, the Satellite Seat, Hold’em, Survivor and Double Up Challenge. Players can compete in each one to earn special prizes which includes cash bonuses and free roll entries.
The most anticipated event of the MiniFTOPS XV is event #22. This event is a two day affair with a buy-in of $250 plus 16. The name of the game is no limit hold’em and it will feature a prize pool guaranteed at $600,000. This tournament will begin on the 21st and it will feature a 5,000 starting chip stack and thirty minute blind levels.
