Full Tilt Classic set to take tournament poker back to basics this February

5 February 2015

ONCHAN, Isle of Man -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- 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, comprising 16 freezeout tournaments across eight days of action.

The series features two daily deep-stack freezeouts – one No Limit Hold’em event and one alternative game type – with direct buy-ins on the first day of the series set at just $0.50. As the series progresses the buy-ins will increase, culminating in the $100 Main Event on Sunday, February 22nd, with at least $200,000 on the line.

The new series is being launched in conjunction with a complete update to the Full Tilt tournament offering. Buy-ins have been standardized for Multi-Table Tournaments and Sit & Gos, and a range of new satellites have been added to the schedule. The Full Tilt Classic will showcase the variety on offer to players. Check out the full schedule below.

“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.

Players will be in line to win even more prizes if they satellite into a Full Tilt Classic event, as they’ll automatically be entered into the Satellite Last Longer competition.
