The latest version of the Full Tilt Poker Online Poker Series – number 8 in the series – commenced this week, with WPT champ David Chiu hosting the first event in the 24 contest program that runs through to May 18 and offers large prize-pools, attracting thousands of online poker fans.
Several of the events boast guaranteed prize-pools in excess of a million dollars, ensuring high levels of interest and thousands of entries for contests hosted by internationally respected players such as Chiu, Jennifer Harman, David Pham, Roland de Wolfe, Phil Ivey, Jeff Madsen, Gus Hansen, Max Pescatori, Nick Schulman, Mike Matusow, Lee Watkinson, Paul Wasicka and Phil Gordon.
In FTOPS 8 Harman will host the popular main event, a Texas Hold 'em competition that carries a buy-in of $500+$35 and a guaranteed prize-pool of $2 million.
Three new "mystery tournaments" introduced to FTOPS 8 have been the cause of some speculation recently, and Full Tilt has now confirmed that these will be:
* A May 8 No Limit Hold'em Triple Shootout with a maximum entry field of 729 and a guaranteed proze-pool of $300 000. Buy-in for this event (number 3 in the program) are $500+$35.
* Event 8 is the Heads-up No Limit Hold'em, restricted to 2 028 players who will pay a $500+$35 buy-in to compete for a guaranteed prize-pool of $250 000.
* The final "surprise" event is number 17, where a buy-in of $200+$16 gets a maximum of 1 296 players into the 6-handed No Limit Hold'em Quadruple Shootout with a guaranteed $200 000 prize-pool.
FTOPS 8 follows a well proven and successful path, with at least one event a day at the Full Tilt website through until May 18, and guaranteed prize-pools totalling $10 million for this major online poker tournament.
