'Mystery' Events Revealed as FTOPS VIII Begins 0001

Full Tilt Poker has now released the formats for three "mystery" events in the Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) VIII, which begins today and runs through May 18th. The three now-disclosed events are these:

Event # 3, May 8th: No-limit Hold'em Triple Shootout (729 players max), $500+$35 entry, $300,000 guaranteed

Event # 8: Heads-up No-limit Hold'em (2,028 players max), $500+$35 entry, $250,000 guaranteed

Event # 17: $200+$16, 6-handed No-limit Hold'em Quadruple Shootout (1,296 players max), $200,000 guaranteed

FTOPS VIII offers $10 million in guaranteed prize money, with one or more events running every day at Full Tilt through the run of the series. Full Tilt has also completed its lineup of event hosts for the series, adding such stars as Gus Hansen, Phil Ivey and Roland de Wolfe.

Players can win seats to all FTOPS events through Full Tilt's Satellite Challenge. FTOPS has also introduced its new "Bouncebackability" freeroll to every player who bubbles, meaning the last player exiting prior to the money in each FTOPS event. Those unfortunate players will qualify for a chance to win a seat into the FTOPS IX main event.
