Full Tilt Taking Tournaments Back to Basics

Full Tilt is going back to basics from February 15th-22nd with the launch of the Full Tilt Classic – an online championship of poker in its purest form, with a total of 16 freeze-out tournaments across eight days of action.

The new series will feature two daily deepstack tournaments with one being No Limit Hold’em and the other being an alternative variant. Buy-ins will start out cheap with $0.50 tickets, but as the series moves forward the buy-in will rise and culminate with two $100 buy-in tournaments with $200,000 and $20,000 in prize pool.

The new series is being launched in conjunction with the update of Full Tilt’s tournament offerings, where buy-ins has been standardized for both MTT and SNG. Furthermore they have also added a variety of different satellites for the tournaments in the new schedule, so players can qualify cheaply.

“The Full Tilt Classic has it all – deep-stack tournaments, a wide range of buy-ins, daily freerolls, and extra prizes that offer great value to players. It’s time for players to rediscover the joy of pure tournament action – the kind of events that got people playing poker in the first place,” said Dominic Mansour, Managing Director at Full Tilt.
