October, 2009 - Update - Nevermind this article, you hear? Full Tilt Poker does not deserve your business. Since the publication of this blog entry, Full Tilt has been involved in some serious cheating scandals and lawsuits. Need I say more?

April 07, 2008 - I don't know about you, but I don't think I have ever come across a $10 million guaranteed online poker tournament. Yes, when I say guaranteed, I mean that is how much is guaranteed to be handed out in winnings to participating poker players. But before you get your hopes up, let me clarify this is $10 million spread out over an entire series of tournaments, and not a single table.

I know, I know. I thought the same thing when I saw Full Tilt Poker's headline press release saying "Over $10 million in guaranteed prize money". I've got to hand it to Full Tilt for getting my attention, though. $10 million is too good to be true for a single online tournament, but $2 million sure isn't. Indeed, the main event for Full Tilt's Online Poker Series is guaranteeing $2 million for first place.

The tournament is scheduled less than a month away, from May 7-10, 2008. Twenty-four individual tournaments will go down during this time - covering the complete spectrum of poker games, including Razz, Omaha,  HORSE, and of course, No Limit Hold'em. As I mentioned, the winner will walk away a millionaire (if they're not one already). During the course of tournament action, Full Tilt says they will announce a handful of "mystery" tournaments, like a two-day $2,500 No-Limit Hold'em tournament to take place before the main event (Obviously, this one's not such a mystery).

Anybody who makes it to a final table will be crowned, or rather, adorned with a jacket, while winners will get a gold jersey for further bragging rights, as well as a gold jersey avatar on Full Tilt's website. Me personally, I'd pass up on the gold avatar. Bragging rights are fun and everything, but sometimes you just want to be the quiet one sitting in late position, if you know what I mean.

The best perk of winning one of these tournaments (besides the money of course) is a free entry into Full Tilt's Tournament of Champions on May 24. Winning this, my friends, will buy your seat to the next World Series of Poker main event.

Full Tilt Online Poker Series is now in its third year, and seems to only get larger each time around. The 2006 event modestly hosted 8 tournaments and guaranteed a $1 million top prize. Now with three times as many tournaments and lots more money, this year's games are expected to draw a large turnout. Online satellite qualifications to all tournaments are now available through Full Tilt's Satellite Challenge.
