PRESS RELEASE -- The best online tournament series just keeps getting better.
In August of 2006, FTOPS I debuted with eight events and a combined guaranteed prize pool of more than $1 million. This past February, FTOPS VII awarded more than $15 million in prize money over 20 events. FTOPS VIII promises to be the biggest FTOPS ever.
Starting on May 7th, FTOPS VIII offers 24 events with a guaranteed prize pool worth more than $10 million. This series features a wide selection of exciting tournaments, each hosted by a Full Tilt Pro, including: the massive $2 million guaranteed Main Event, the $2,500 Two-Day Tournament and three special "mystery" events unlike anything FTOPS has ever seen before.
Remember to participate in the Satellite Challenge, which gives you the chance to win tournament entries. Stay on top of the FTOPS VIII action by checking out the FTOPS leaderboard and watching video highlights from each final table with commentary provided by the pros and Poker After Dark announcer Ali Nejad.
Be one of the final players in any FTOPS VIII event and receive more than just a nice payday. Everyone who makes the final table of any FTOPS VIII event will receive a limited-edition FTOPS jacket. Players who win an FTOPS VIII event will receive the jacket, along with a gold FTOPS jersey, a coveted gold jersey avatar for use on Full Tilt Poker and an entry to the FTOPS Season II Tournament of Champions.
We've crowned 50 champions so far in our second full year of FTOPS. Twenty-four more players will join this elite group after FTOPS VIII is complete. To find out who's the best of the best, we're gathering all the winners from FTOPS V, VI, VII and VIII together to compete in the Tournament of Champions for the chance to win a free $10K WSOP* Main Event seat.
All of the champions from the second year of FTOPS will be automatically entered into the TOC, which will take place at 15:00 ET (20:00 GMT) on Saturday, May 24th. Prove that you're the best of the best and make your way to Vegas for the Big Dance.
