WSOP numbers are down a bit this year, but online poker is still steadily growing. FTOPS (Full Tilt Online Poker Series) #5 has a $7,000,000 guaranteed prize pool, which is $3,000,000 more then last year.
This time they’re adding a $2,500 two day event into the mix. The deepstack format gives you a ton of room for play before the blinds start eating away at your stack, and it definitely rewards the more skilled players.
Full Tilt is also running a satellite challenge for the the FTOPS event to get more players involved. They player that wins the most satellites to an individual FTOPS event will have their account credited with twice the buy-in for the tournament, along with the cash for each additional satellite win. So if you’re running good in the $2,500+120 tournament satellites, you can potentially get an extra $5,240 credited to your account.
Satellites started on July 9th and will run up until the day of each tournament in August. Here’s the complete FTOPS #5 Schedule.
