Step tournaments at Full Tilt Poker are Sit & Go’s where you can start with a small buy-in and work your way up the ladder into bigger steps, multi-table tournaments, live tournaments or big cash payouts.
Full Tilt Poker offers seven step levels. The buy-ins are:
You can use steps 3-6 for entry into any similar buy-in tournament or Sit & Go on Full Tilt Poker. You are not allowed to “cash out” along the way into tournament dollars.
Step tournaments are offered in No Limit Hold’Em and Pot Limit Omaha (except Step 7). You can play with regular blind levels (6 minutes), turbo blind levels (3 minutes) or super turbos (3 minutes and 300 chips). You can play a 9-handed, 6-handed (Steps 1-6) or four player heads-up shootout (Steps 1-4) Sit & Go's.
At each step level a minimum of 1 person advances to the next step (often 2) and each step offers tickets for the same level or a lower level for some players if they fail to advance. For example, in 9-handed Sit & Go's, tickets are awarded at each step as follows:
Play should be tight in the early levels. In the middle stages look to take the blinds from both large and short stacked players. The bigger stacks, if they have enough chips to cruise into the next step are looking to only play monster hands. They don’t need to win every chip at the table. When you reach the redo bubble (after the next player is eliminated a same step ticket is locked-up), start picking on the shorter stacks that appear to be just folding their way into a redo ticket.
Once the redo ticket is locked-up, open up your game and gamble it up. You have nothing to lose at this point if you are in a chip position not to advance to the next level. Take your chances shoving a wide range of hands.
