Calling all online poker players – there’s a new tournament series in town. It’s called the Full Tilt Classic, and it presents players who don’t have an excessive bankroll to work with a lot of opportunities to cash in. Full Tilt’s new online poker series began Sunday, February 15th, with tournaments starting at $0.50, and will end on Sunday, February 22nd, with a $100 buy-in, $200k GTD Main Event.
The Full Tilt Classic will feature two daily deep-stack tournaments for 8 days straight, featuring what the online poker operator calls “some pretty sweet prize pools”. To top it off, Full Tilt is running “daily freeroll tournaments and even more prizes when you satellite your way into a Full Tilt Classic tournament.”
The buy-ins increase with each day of the tournament, starting at $0.50 on day one, then increasing to $1, $2.50, $5, $10, $25, $50 and $100 on the final day of the Full Tilt Classic online poker series. There’s a variable mix of games to be played throughout the festival. Each day will present one NL Holdem event, plus one non-Holdem event, which encompasses everything from FL Holdem with full and 6-max tables, to PLO, FLO, 5 Card Draw, 2-7 Triple Draw, Stud Hi/Lo and Razz.
Two tournaments will be held each day at 13:30 and 15:30 ET. There are 15 regular events and one Main Event in the Full Tilt Classic, with the Main Event scheduled for 13:30 ET on Sunday, Feb 22nd.
Full Tilt Classic Freeroll Tournaments
In addition, two freerolls will be held each day, and anyone who participates in a Full Tilt Classic event will receive a ticket to play in them. Here’s how it works…
Classic Holdem Freeroll – Daily at 12:30 ET: Every player who participates in a Full Tilt Classic NL Holdem event will receive a ticket to play in the following day’s Classic Holdem Freeroll.
The Classic Freeroll – Daily at 14:30 ET: Every player who participates in a Full Tilt Classic Non-Holdem event will receive a ticket to play in the following day’s Classic Freeroll.
Every freeroll will dole out anywhere from 5-200 tournament tickets for the next day’s Full Tilt Classic event. Winners of the Classic Holdem Freeroll will win tournament tickets into the following day’s Full Tilt Classic NL Holdem event, while winners of the Classic Freeroll receive tickets into the following day’s Full Tilt Classic Non-Holdem event.
It’s a repetitive, 8-day cycle that could actually catapult a player into every single event of the online poker series just for paying a $0.50 buy-in to each event on day one.
Satellite Last Longer Competition
There’s an added benefit for players who win a satellite into any event of the Full Tilt Classic. It’s called the Satellite Last Longer competition, and it will award a $100 Main Event ticket to the player who lasts the longest in any Full Tilt Classic tournament after satelliting their way into a seat. For instance, if 15 players win a satellite entry into an event, of those individuals, the player who makes it the deepest into that event automatically secures a $100 seat in the Full Tilt Classic Main Event.
