The thirteenth instalment of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) will kick off on August 5th this year, consisting of 25 events which culminate in a $535 buy-in $2.5 million guaranteed prize pool tournament on August 16th.
This time around, the company is holding off on the controversial MiniFTOPS events, which were accused of cannibalising the full event matches in FTOPS 12. In a major change, MiniFTOPS events will not occur until September.
Each MiniFTOPS event carries a buy-in that is one-tenth of its FTOPS counterpart and these will kick off on September 9th.
Several different poker genres are featured on the FTOPS 13 schedule, including Hold’em, Omaha, Stud, HORSE, and Razz. Heads-up, short-handed, full ring, and knockout tournaments.
FTOPS XIII is also carrying an  $120 buy-in Ante Up for Africa charity tournament with at least $100 000 in the prize pool, and Full Tilt will donate the entire $20 entry fee to charity.
