Full Tilt Skills League Event #1: Huge Overlays for PokerNews Players
Download Full Tilt Poker via PokerNews to play in a $55,000 added skill league which culminates in a $20,000 freeroll.
PokerNews players enjoyed a huge overlay in event one of the $55,000 PokerNews Skills Challenge last week. $3,000 was added to the prize pool of event #1, which was a $5+$0.50 freezeout that attracted just 133 players. That meant that there was nearly six times as much added money as there was put up by the players in event number one. It also meant that if you had played, your $5+$0.50 buy-in would have actually been worth around $27.50.
In particular geguzis41 of Lithuania will be smiling, as he took down event #1 for $844.10 and put himself right to the top of the leader board.
Like the sound of that? You can still get in on the action as there are 7 more of these money added league events every Wednesday and the ranking system does not penalise latecomers. There is still $52,000 in added money to play for so get in on the action now like the 133 shrewd PokerNews players did last week.
Got the Skills? We have the Money.
The top finishers in each of the following events get league points which count towards the $3,200 League Final Freeroll and the $20,000 Championship Freeroll. For more information on how the league works, check out the $55,000 PokerNews Skills Challenge League Page.
