$55,000 PokerNews Skills Challenge on Full Tilt Poker - Includes $20,000 Freeroll
Download Full Tilt Poker via PokerNews to play in a $55,000 added skill league which culminates in a $20,000 freeroll.
PokerNews and Full Tilt Poker have come together to bring low stakes players one of the most varied and generous money added leagues anywhere in poker. The $55,000 PokerNews Skills Challenge at Full Tilt is a series of low stakes league events, which culminate in a $20,000 Championship Final Freeroll.
Got the Skills? We have the Money.
Starting on February 23 until April 20, there will be one league event a week every Wednesday with a $1,000-$5,000 added to every prize pool.
The top 64 players in each league event will score league points that count towards the League Final Freeroll and $20,000 Championship Final Freeroll. Each event will have a points multiplying factor, and some events will score more points to the top finishers than others.
The top 32 players in the league will gain entry into the $3,200 League Final Freeroll on April 20 and on top of that each win a ticket to the Full Tilt $750,000 Guaranteed worth $216.
The top 200 players in the league standing will then make it to the $20,000 Championship Final Freeroll on May 1, which will be one of our most exclusive and biggest single freerolls ever.
The scoring for both the $3,200 League Final Freeroll and the $20,000 Championship Final Freeroll will be based on the best five results from any of the eight tournaments, so you still have a good chance even if you have to miss a few events. In the event of a tie in the top 32, we will go on the best individual finishes of the tied players to determine who gets in the $3,200 League Final Freeroll + $750,000 Guaranteed Tournament Token. In the event of a tie between places 200-201, both players will get in the $20,000 Championship Final Freeroll.

FastTrack Your Way to the $20,000 Freeroll
If you miss out in the league, don’t have the time or just want to guarantee your spot, you can get there direct without playing any of the league events. That’s because any PokerNews referred Full Tilt Poker account holders who earn 200 Full Tilt Points in the month of April will be eligible to play also.
The $20,000 freeroll is likely to have one of the smallest fields but one of the biggest prize pools you are ever likely to see, so whether you play the league or not you want to get in on this action. If you have already been playing the league events in April you will already have plenty of Full Tilt Points to get you started.
So whether you fast track your way to the $20,000 freeroll or beat up the competition, if you’ve got the skills we have the $55,000 added money you’ve been waiting for. Download Full Tilt Poker via PokerNews and use bonus code PKRNEWS to get in on the action (Also good for a 100% up to $600 first deposit bonus)
