Full Tilt Launches New Poker Tournament Format

17 March 2011 by admin

The online poker site Full Tilt, the main competitor of the well-known PokerStars online poker site, launched a new tournament format for their online poker tournaments. They are calling this a matrix format and believe it will give them an edge when it comes to their competitiveness in the online poker world. After all, it is always Full Tilt versus PokerStars.

Full Tilt is calling its new tournament format a matrix format in which players earn points for both staying alive in the tournament and for eliminating another player. Full Tilt explained how points are awarded to players in a statement, saying, “Players will earn one Matrix point for each opponent they outlast, Survival Points, and two points for every player they knockout at each table, Knockout Points. Each player’s point for individual tables will be listed by match under Score by Match in the Tournament Lobby. Total points for the entire tournament will be listed under Matrix Score.”

I know it does not sound like the simplest of explanations, so Full Tilt also gave an example of a nine player online poker tournament in which each player buys in for $11. Then each table would have the following prizes for first, second and third places respectively out of an $18 prize pool for each table: $9, $5.40 and $3.60.

I know. That does not really explain how the points work but Full Tilt thinks that this is a fine example of their new Matrix point tournament format despite the lack of points in that explanation. But perhaps this is Full Tilt’s way of explain that up to eight players will be able to play against the same up to eight other players at up to four tables at the same time. In that way I can see how this would allow players to have more online poker tournament action.

Full Tilt is very proud of their new matrix format for their online poker tournaments. While I personally think it sounds a tad over complicated, I have no doubt that Full Tilt fans will be quite pleased with the new format.
