Ever fancied going head-to-head with Gus Hansen but never had the bankroll? Full Tilt Poker is giving players that opportunity courtesy of its new Satellite Hero challenge.
The winner of the site's Satellite Hero Freeroll on 7 September will play heads-up against the Great Dane a day later on 8 September. The lucky winner will begin with a 2:1 chip lead over Hansen and, if they beat The Professional, they will be awarded a prize package that includes a ticket to every MiniFTOPS XXIII event, valued at over $1,200. Players can qualify for the Satellite Hero Freeroll by satelliting into a scheduled tournament between now and 1 September and then going on to cash in that tournament. The Satellite Hero Freeroll seat will come in addition to any cash prizes won. There are also MiniFTOPS XXIII tickets worth more than $3,000 on offer to the top 126 finishers in the Satellite Hero Freeroll. And that's not all as during the Satellite Hero period, qualifying satellite winners who reach the final table of their destination tournament will receive a Tournament Ticket to the value of the buy-in. "Full Tilt Poker's satellite tournaments represent great value, letting players compete for big prize pools for a fraction of the cost," said Sarne Lightman, Head of Marketing at Full Tilt Poker. "But Satellite Hero brings this to a whole new level - it gives our players a shot at taking on a true poker legend and the opportunity to bag tickets to all the MiniFTOPS XXIII events along the way." New players at Full Tilt can try their luck in the Satellite Hero challenge with a 100% bonus up to $600 and entry into freerolls where $50,000 can be won. Sign up at FullTiltPoker.com.
