Live Montreal Festival to be Hosted by Full Tilt Poker
Full Tilt Poker, the leading online poker room, has announced that it will be hosting a live poker series in the Montreal area over a period of two weeks, commencing on 21st September, 2013.
The Full Tilt Poker Montreal Festival will feature 17 events and unlike the Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) which consists of almost every game imaginable, the Montreal Festival will consist of mostly No-Limit Hold’em games. Other than a few Omaha events, the majority of the games are No-Limit Hold’em. There will, however, be some variation in the category of No-Limit Hold’em such as re-buy, and deepstack.
Buy-ins for all the tournaments range from $50 + $10 to $200 + $20 with the exception of the Main Event which will cost $1,000 + $100.
Full Tilt Poker is guaranteeing a prize pool of C$1 million for the Main Event of the tournament which will be a re-entry event with three starting flights.
The online poker room will be running qualifiers for the Main Event on its site every Sunday at 7.00 pm ET at a cost of $100 + $9 for direct entry. Full Tilt Poker is also offering several satellites to the $109 qualifier with prices starting at a mere 55 cents.
The Full Tilt Poker Montreal Festival is scheduled to take place at the Playground Poker Club in Kahnawake which is located approximately 20 minutes south of downtown Montreal.
