Full Tilt Announces Classic Poker Series – Starts on Sunday

Full Tilt Announces Classic Poker SeriesFull Tilt has released the schedule for its inaugural Classic Poker Series, a series of tournaments “that got people playing poker in the first place”.

The Full Tilt Classic poker series is poker how it used to be according to the company´s managing director Dominic Mansour, and he is right. Unlike many other current online poker tournament series, the Full Tilt Classic poker series contains no gimmicky events – just freezeout, after freezeout, after freezeout.

The series starts this coming Sunday (February 15th) and consists of sixteen poker tournaments over the next eight days – one NL Hold´em event each day at 13:30pm (ET) and one event in an alternative poker discipline at 15:30pm (ET) each day. The series culminates with a Main Event scheduled for Sunday February 22nd that has a guaranteed prize pool of $200,000.

What´s on the Schedule for the Full Tilt Classic?

Whether you are a Texas Hold´em purist or a player that likes participating in other poker disciplines, there is something for everyone during the eight days of the Full Tilt Classic. Buy-ins start from just $0.50 on the first day of the series, and increase each day until they reach the Main Event – which has a buy-in of $100.00.

Satellites are running for the tournaments with the highest buy-ins and there is also a freeroll promotion to give players with a limited bankroll the opportunity to compete in the most valuable events (more details on this below).

Full Tilt Classic Freeroll Promotion

During the series, Full Tilt will be giving away between 50 and 200 seats to each of the events in two daily freeroll tournaments which will be played at 12:30pm ET (for entry into the NL Hold´em tournaments) and at 14:30pm ET (for the non- NL Hold´em tournaments).

To qualify for the first of the freeroll tournaments on Sunday February 15th, players just have to earn one Full Tilt Point between now and the start of the freeroll. Thereafter, players participating in any of the Full Tilt Poker Classic tournaments will automatically be credited with a seat in the following day´s freeroll tournament.

Full Tilt Classic Last Longest Promotion

Full Tilt is also hosting a “last longest” promotion for players who qualify for any of the first fourteen events in the Classic Poker Series. Each of the satellite qualifiers who last longest in Events #1 to #14 will be rewarded with a Full Tilt Classic Main Event ticket as well as any winnings they collect for finishing highest amongst the qualifiers.

Like the freeroll seat prizes, tickets for the Full Tilt Classic Main Event will be credited to a player´s account the following morning, and the player must self-register for the tournament. There are no cash alternatives.

Are You New to the Game?

If you are a new online poker player and have never experienced playing at Full Tilt, this is the ideal site for you to learn the principles of poker and develop your game. Full Tilt has special “New to the Game” tables at which play proceeds at a slower pace than at standard tables.

For your first 2,000 hands in a ring game or 75 tournaments, you will be able to play exclusively against other new players while taking advantage of tooltips and a hand strength monitor to help develop your game. You are not confined to new player tables though, and can take your chance in the Full Tilt Classic Poker Series if you believe your game is strong enough!
