Online poker tournament players on a low budget will be in their glory for 15 days beginning Sunday, February 16 when Full Tilt kicks off the first of 75 events in its Micro Turbo Online Poker Series (MTOPS).
More than $1 million is guaranteed to land in the accounts of winning players upon the conclusion of MTOPS on Sunday, March 2. Half of that will be doled out to players who finish in the money of the $500,000 Guaranteed Main Event on the final day of the series that requires a buy-in of only $14 + $1 in No-Limit Hold’em Turbo that features a huge starting stack of 10,000 in chips.
Most events throughout the 15-day online festival can be entered for just a few dollars and all 75 allow for multiple entries. The number of entries permitted per player for each event is listed on the MTOPS schedule. As always, FTP provides a wealth of satellite opportunities for players to gain entries for as little as $0.11 or 5 Full Tilt Points.
Of course, NLHE is the dominant game of the 75 events on the schedule. However, a wide assortment of various game types are on the menu, including Courchevel, Irish, Badugi, Razz and Stud.
MTOPS action begins at 08:00 ET on Feb. 16 with a $25,000 guaranteed freeroll. On the same day at 16:00 ET, a NLHE Turbo Rush Rebuy allows for four entries on a miniscule $2 + $0.20 buy-in that guarantees a prize pool payout of $30,000. There are also a few Pro Bounty events on the schedule that award cash for knocking out FTP pros in addition to the prize pool guarantee.
While the pro bounties and guarantees are worthy goals to shoot for, FTP has tossed in some added fun by also promising cash bonuses, tourney tickets, MTOPS merchandise, and prizes for excelling in MTOPS Leaderboards and a Multi-Entry Challenge.
Players would be well-advised to highlight Feb. 16 – March 2 on their calendars for micro turbo tournament action at Full Tilt Poker. It all begins this Sunday!
