We are talking about the Full Tilt Poker Montreal Festival! This exciting event looks to kick off in a few days in the wonderful city of Montreal.
The series will feature 17 events over a 13 day period, from Saturday, September 21st to Thursday, October 3rd. The series will start out with a $150 buy-in event that will feature three Day 1’s. Players can re-enter if they are knocked out, and given that the tournament is guaranteeing a prize pool of $100,000, it would be in their best interest to do so.
The series will also sprinkle in a handful of unique tournaments that are offered at small buy-ins for some of the smaller stakes pros. The highlights on the list include an $80 buy-in Big Ante tournament on Sunday, September 29th, $165 Six-Max Event the following day, and a $200 Bounty tournament on Wednesday October 2nd.
Of course, the tournament that everyone will be coming out for is the Main Event, and it should be a doozy. The buy-in is $1,100, with a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million, meaning that first place will walk away with around $200,000. The event starts on Friday the 27th with the first of three possible Day 1’s. As is the hot trend these days, the event is also a re-entry, meaning that if you bust on one day 1, you can come back and play Day 1b or Day 1c.
It is a five day event that will be culminating with the final table on Thursday, October 3rd. Don’t have $1,100 to burn? No matter. You can qualify multiple ways for the Main Event. You can do so at the Playground Casino itself, but if you don’t want to leave the comfort of your own home, Full Tilt Poker and Pokerstars will be offering satellites around the clock!
It will sure be an exciting time in Montreal starting this weekend, and if you are a Canadian poker pro, you don’t want to miss it. The first event kicks off Saturday at noon, so make sure that you make it out to the Playground!
Don't forget, if you do not have a FTP account yet, make sure you sign up through PokerNews otherwise you will miss out on the bonus money and freerolls you will be entitled to in the future by doing so.
