FTOPS XIII Schedule Announced; $19 Million Guaranteed

By Dan Cypra for POKER NEWS DAILY | Posted on July 04, 2009

The thirteenth installment of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) has been announced and will kick off on August 5th. FTOPS XIII consists of 25 events, culminating in a $535 buy-in $2.5 million guaranteed prize pool tournament on August 16th.

In a major change from FTOPS XII, MiniFTOPS events will not occur until September. Each MiniFTOPS event carries a buy-in that is one-tenth of its FTOPS counterpart and the festivities begin on September 9th. A variety of games will grace the FTOPS XIII schedule, including Hold’em, Omaha, Stud, HORSE, and Razz. Heads-up, short-handed, full ring, and knockout tournaments will all be played. Last time out, Full Tilt Poker member Pocketownage420 took home $432,000 for winning the FTOPS XII Main Event. The runner-up, azzabentonaces, received a healthy $262,000 consolation prize and the top five players cashed for at least six figures.

FTOPS XIII also features an Ante Up for Africa tournament, a $120 buy-in charity event. Ante Up for Africa Co-Founder Don Cheadle is a Full Tilt pro and at least $100,000 will be in the prize pool. Full Tilt will donate the entire $20 entry fee to charity. The 2009 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Ante Up for Africa tournament attracted 137 runners and generated over $300,000 for its beneficiary organizations.
