New promotions created by online poker sites often fall somewhere between standard and amazingly creative, but a recently announced promo at Full Tilt is nothing short of a knockout.
A total of $60,000 is on the line in Full Tilt’s “Cash Knockout” promotion that offers payouts in three separate leaderboard races. But the leaderboard winners are not determined by player points racked up, as has been the industry norm. Instead, points are earned by knocking out opponents on ring game tables.
Players need to opt in to the promo that gets underway on Friday, February 6 and runs for 10 days through Sunday, February 15. Each player that you bust on the No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha ring game tables is good for one point. That includes action on the Rush Poker cash tables.
A knockout is counted when you leave a player with $0 in cash at the conclusion of a hand. But each player can knock out a particular opponent only once, even if they reload and end up hitting the canvas with $0 in cash again due to your winning hand.
Cash Knockout Leaderboard Categories
The three separate leaderboards are for low, medium and high stakes. Low stakes players are found on tables of $0.02/$0.05 – $0.05/$0.10 and will be playing for a leaderboard prize pool of $15,000. A total of 250 places will be paid, with the winner taking home $1,200 in knockout cash.
