The Full Tilt Online Poker Series recently concluded and was a monumental success. Poker pros from all around the world took their shot at millions in prize money and this created some exciting poker drama.

Of course, not all of us can afford to put up hundreds or even thousands of dollars to compete in FTOPS. Fortunately, for you, miniFTOPS XXVIII is just around the corner featuring events at just 1/10th the buy-in of standard events.

MiniFTOPS XXVIII kicks off on April 19 and continues through May 3. This time, 35 events are featured with combined guarantees exceeding $1 million.

Become a Well-Rounded Player Without Much Risk

The only way you’re going to become a well-rounded poker player is to become competent in all the games. Mini-FTOPS allows you the opportunity to play over 20 different variants of poker with most events under a $100 buy-in.

These are some of the variants spread during Mini-FTOPS:

  • Texas Hold’em (Fixed Limit and numerous variants of NL)
  • PL Omaha
  • Omaha Hi-Lo (Pot-Limit and No-Limit)
  • PL 6-Card Omaha
  • Stud Hi-Lo
  • Razz
  • PL HA (PL Holdem, PL Omaha)
  • HORSE (Fixed Limit Hold’em, Omaha Hi-Lo, Razz, Stud, Stud 8 or Better)
  • 10-Game (HORSE plus NL Hold’em, PL Omaha, 2-7 Triple Draw, NL 2-7 Draw and Badugi)
  • 25-Game (10-Game plus 5 Card Draw, 6 Card Omaha, Corchevel Hi, Irish, 5 Card Stud and A-5 Triple Draw)

These events offer a chance for you to improve your mixed game prowess without breaking your bankroll.

Earn Black Card Pro Sponsorship

Mini-FTOPS offers the opportunity for one person to earn a four-month Black Card Pro Sponsorship. The player that finishes atop the MiniFTOPS leaderboard will earn Black Card Pro Sponsorship privileges starting from May 19.

What does a Black Card Pro Sponsorship earn you? How about 100% rakeback during the entire time that you’re a Black Card Pro. That’s right; earn Black Card Pro and you get every penny paid in rake or tournament fees refunded directly to your Full Tilt account.

FTP Black Card Solid Black

In addition to 100% rakeback, you also receive exclusive Black Card Pro merchandise directly from Full Tilt. The best part of this promotion is that you don’t have to battle for months in Sit & Go’s or cash games. Run well in Mini-FTOPS and you can play rake free for four months.

Over $1 Million in Guaranteed Prize Money

Every event in MiniFTOPS XXVIII features a guaranteed prize pool. Guarantees range from $5,000 all the way to $300,000 for the Main Event.

Some notable guarantees include Event #1, a $25 NL Hold’em with Re-Entry event that features a $75,000 guarantee. Event #15 is the $250 Two-Day NL Event with a solid $100,000 guarantee. Event #18 is a $50 NL Re-Entry Event also featuring a $100,000 guaranteed prize pool.

The final day of the series features $350,000 in guaranteed prize money. Event #34 kicks off the day with a $25 NL Hold’em freezeout event boasting a $50,000 guarantee. Later in the day, the MiniFTOPS Main Event features $100 buy-in with Re-Entry and a $300,000 guaranteed prize pool.

We expect many of these events, especially the Main Event, to shatter these guarantees. With most of the buy-ins in this series under $100, MiniFTOPS XXVIII presents a fantastic opportunity to build your bankroll with reduced risk over other events.

It’s All About the Jersey

If we haven’t already convinced you that MiniFTOPS is a good investment, how about we sweeten the deal with a championship jersey. The winner of each MiniFTOPS event receives a silver FTOPS jersey as well as a matching silver jersey avatar for their Full Tilt Profile.

MiniFTOPS Gold Helmet

The FTOPS and miniFTOPS jerseys are symbols of true champions on Full Tilt, much in the same vein as a World Series of Poker bracelet. Many miniFTOPS champions go on to win FTOPS events or perform well in other high profile online tournaments. It truly can be the springboard for great things in the online game.

Also, anyone that reaches the final table of a miniFTOPS event will receive a limited edition MiniFTOPS hoodie. This will make a great brag piece at your next home game with your buddies.
