The Total Tilt Online Poker Sequence (FTOPS) is again

The Total Tilt Online Poker Sequence (FTOPS) is again. The 19th installment with the well-known quarterly series will get underway on Sunday and is also comprised of 45 events of all formats and kinds, such as Rush Poker tournaments, Cashout tournaments, and Multi-Entry tournaments.

Multi-Entry tournaments were additional to the Complete Tilt Poker consumer in January and had been an immediate hit. So a lot to ensure that FTOPS XIX capabilities nine of them, which includes the $640 Primary Occasion on February 20th which has a $3 million assured prize pool.

There were currently 144 entries for your Principal Event at the time of writing. Among the players with six entries registered incorporated David “Doc Sands” Sands, Joseph “hoodini10?? Udine, Shaun “tedsfishfry” Deeb, and Josh “professor plum” Prager. Group Full Tilt Pros Erick Lindgren and Huck Seed each had 1 entry registered. Lindgren is hosting the occasion.

Even though the Multi-Entry events had been hugely profitable during Double Guarantees Week in January, some players have currently grown fed up with the enormous fields and extra tables. “I’m pondering of boycotting the (FTOPS) Multi-Entry events,” explained Daniel “Deoxyribo” Strelitz. “Would relatively not enter pricey tourneys having a relative minimal ROI.”

TwoPlusTwo forum poster “Blufforz” agreed, saying, “I don’t such as the new Multi-Entry factor. They must develop unique Multi-Entry tournaments, not apply it to by now current tournaments. I played a tournament that was doubled in dimension simply because of this and they did not alter the payouts and barely elevated the amount of men and women who money.”

Similar opinions surfaced on PocketFives.com this week. 1 participant complained, “Just checked out the FTOPS schedule and observed there is not any just plain aged NLHE MTT. Not in all of the 45 entries. They’re Multi-Entries, Rush, or other. Remarkable you can possess a 45-tourney series and never have one single-entry NLHE.”

The agitated poster did overlook the first FTOPS event on Sunday, February 6th, which can be a $216 No Restrict Hold’em freezeout. But, like many with the common high-stakes gamers in the U.S., he might be participating in Super Bowl Sunday festivities rather than taking to the virtual felts.

That sparked a entire other discussion in between gamers. With FTOPS XIX kicking off on Super Bowl Sunday, what had been the high-stakes tournament professionals going to decide on?

Joe “Dyzalot” Morneau presented his thoughts on the topic within a thread at PocketFives.com: “The Super Bowl is only as soon as each year and is really a de facto national holiday. I can play poker every single day, Sundays 52 times a yr, and FTOPS 8 weeks out of the yr. I’ll be attending a Super Bowl get together.” Francis “The Lab Rat” Anderson echoed Morneau’s sentiments, saying, “Don’t believe I’ve actually or will actually grind a Sunday session on Super Bowl Sunday.”

With the chance of an overlay within the very first FTOPS event, which features a $1 million guaranteed prize pool, some of the top rated players don’t need to miss out. Page “pageh656?? Harris, who won the very first event of FTOPS XVIII for $117,000, said, “Who provides a [expletive] concerning the Super Bowl? UFC Saturday night along with the Sunday grind obviously.”

Then you will discover those that will tackle each. Stated Paul “paulgees81?? Volpe, the #3 ranked player to the PocketFives.com Worldwide Rankings, “(I’ll be) playing poker with buddies and watching the Super Bowl ?- Could cease registering just a little earlier. If the Eagles had been enjoying, I wouldn’t be playing poker.”
