Kicking off Sunday, February 6th, with over $22 million in guaranteed prize money and 45 events on the schedule, FTOPS XIX will provide plenty of variety.  With games including 2-7 Triple Draw, Badugi, and even several new mixed game formats, casual players to grizzled veterans should find something to enjoy.

For the high rollers out there, Full Tilt has added a new $10,000 No Limit Hold’em Heads Up Event that has a guaranteed prize pool of $500K. The Heads Up Event is a two day tournament that’s limited to only 128 participants, and starts on February 12th at 17:00 ET.

To showcase their latest tournament poker innovation, nine of the FTOPS XIX events will be Multi-Entry Tournaments, including the $600 buy-in Main Event on Sunday, February 20th which carries a guaranteed prize pool of $3 million dollars.  In addition to this, seven of the events scheduled will be played as Rush Poker Tournaments.
