As the New Year arrived, Full Tilt Poker quietly added an easier way for players to achieve Iron Man Gold and Iron status, much to the delight of its high-volume players.
If a player earns 500 Full Tilt Points for 15 days in a given month, Iron Man Gold status is achieved, and for earning 500 points for 20, Iron Status is reached.
In addition to this, Iron Man Plus has returned by popular demand. Players achieving any status level in the Iron Man Challenge are awarded bonus medals based on the number of days they earn 1000 or 2000 points. For each 1000 point day, five bonus medals are awarded, and for every 2000 point day, 15 bonus medals are awarded.
One other minor change to the Iron Man Challenge is that players are now automatically enrolled in the corresponding Iron Man Challenge Freeroll tournament the following month, as opposed to having to go and register for the freeroll as it was before. As always though, players who prefer not to play in the freeroll can exchange their tournament tickets for bonus medals.
Full Tilt Poker has also added Heads Up Sit & Go rankings to their Leaderboards. Like the other leaderboards Full Tilt offers, the Heads Up Sit & Go Leaderboards assign points based on the diversity of your opponents. With Low, Medium, High, and Highest Limit Leaderboards, there’s something for everyone.
Finish a month in the top 200 of any leaderboard, and you can win extra buy-ins to your favorite Heads Up Sit & Gos.
