Full Tilt Launches New MTT Series

Full Tilt Launches New MTT Series

Friday, 6 February 2015

Full Tilt is taking things back to the old school this month with a new tournament series that's described as "classic".

Announced last night, the Full Tilt Poker Classic will coincide with a complete revamp of the site's MTT schedule that will see buy-ins across all disciplines standardised to a more even level. The first event in the Full Tilt Classic will take place on February 15 and, over the course of eight days, players will be able to compete in two tournaments per day (16 events in total).

To give the series a unique twist, Full Tilt has implemented the following features:

Each day the series will offer a No Limit Hold'em event and one alternative game type.

Buy-ins on Day 1 will start at $0.50 and as the series progresses the entry fees will increase. The action will culminate with a $100 Main Event that will take place on February 22 and boast a $200,000 prizepool.

Anyone who enters either of the two MTTs on a given day will be given a freeroll ticket which will allow them to win entry to the corresponding event the following day.

In addition to the above features of the festival, satellite players are being given an extra reward if they can demonstrate superior survival skills. According to the rules of the series, any player that qualifies for a tournament via a satellite will be automatically entered into the Satellite Last Longer competition for that event.

The player who lasts the longest will receive a ticket to the $100 Full Tilt Classic Main Event on February 22.

Commenting on its newest online festival, Full Tilt's Managing Director, Dominic Mansour, said:

"The Full Tilt Classic has it all – deep-stack tournaments, a wide range of buy-ins, daily freerolls, and extra prizes that offer great value to players. It’s time for players to rediscover the joy of pure tournament action – the kind of events that got people playing poker in the first place."
