Best Full Tilt Poker FTOPS XVII Schedule Events to Play
In total there are 34 very profitable events taking place during the Full Tilt Poker’s FTOPS XVII series that begins on August 4th and concludes with the Main Event on the 15th. For the first time ever the Full Tilt Online Poker Series of tournaments will have one major addition: Rush Poker. When Full Tilt created Rush Poker back in January 2010 the second largest online poker room created an even more exciting form of online poker and their new tournament format of Rush Poker will grace the world renown FTOPS and is sure to become a major feature of the FTOPS in the future.
Events on the FTOPS XVII Schedule that are Should be Focused On
In all there are 34 events during the FTOPS XVII worth over $19 million in guaranteed money, and that’s including the $3 million FTOPS Main Event that takes place on August 15th. This means that there are 4 more events than the last FTOPS, making the 12-day FTOPS jam packed full of events. For those bankroll wise players that are forced to pick and choose which events to take part in rather than buy into all 34 events for well over $10,000, there are a few events that should be focused on.
Here are the top 5 FTOPS XVII events that should be considered by the bankroll conscious player:
- Event #1: August 4th $200+$16 (No Limit Hold’em) $750,000 Guaranteed
- Event #9: August 7th $100+$9 (No Limit Hold’em with Rebuys) $600,000 Guaranteed
- Event #11: August 8th $120+$9 (No Limit Hold’em Knockout) $800,000 Guaranteed
- Event #22: August 11th $300+$22 (No Limit Hold’em Six-Max with Rebuys) $1million Guaranteed
- Event #30: August 14th $100+$9 (Pot Limit Omaha with Rebuys) $400,000 Guaranteed
All of the events that have been listed are each different and have their own qualities that make them good choices, but out of the 34 events these 5 hold the best cost to reward possibilities. It must be noted that the Main Event has been left out. The Main Event might have a $3 million guaranteed prize pool. At a $640 buy-in the possibility of winning the Main Event is not good as the number of players for the event will be enormous regardless of the high buy-in making it very difficult to cash let alone win.
Top Two Rush Poker Events in the FTOPS XVII Schedule
There are 6 Rush Poker events in the upcoming FTOPS and they too can have a hefty buy-in. For those player’s who wish to try their hand at the top Rush Poker events without breaking the bank here are the top two Rush Poker events during the FTOPS XVII:
- Event #10: August 7th $200+$16 (No Limit Hold’em Turbo Rush) $350,000 Guaranteed
- Event #33: August 15th $150+$13 (No Limit Hold’em Rush with Rebuys) $750,000 Guaranteed
Like the regular FTOPS event selections these hold the best cost-benefit ratio. For those player’s who fancy themselves Pot Limit Omaha or Omaha Hi/Lo players there are also Rush Poker events for these as well, but the guarantees won’t be as high. These events do have comparatively low guarantees as this is more than likely a byproduct of Rush Poker events in the FTOPS being just introduced so Full Tilt is unsure as to how popular they are going to be.
No matter what event a player chooses, however, the money that can be won during the FTOPS XVII is enormous. During a period in poker where other major online poker rooms are hosting their own major tournament series Full Tilt has a lot to draw players to it, even for those who are on a tight bankroll. Full Tilt is also running FTOPS satellite tournaments all the time for players who want to play in the tournament series without spending hundred on a single buy-in. For those who want to play on as many events as possible be sure to consult the full FTOPS XVII schedule.
