Event #7 in the Full Tilt Skills Challenge proved to be our most lucrative yet, as 210 players did battle in the $5+$1 rebuy event with $2,500 added. The final prize pool was $5,920 and "Flosav" of Hungary had the last word, taking it down for $1,332.
The final league event in the series could be even bigger, as it is a $10+$1 six max shootout with $4,000 added to the prize pool. This event also had a x2 points multiplier, which means a strong finish could be enough to secure your place in the top 200 and possibly even the final 32 of the leaderboard.
The reason why that is important is that the top 200 players in the league table after this event will gain automatic entry into a $20,000 Freeroll Final on May 1 at 1600 EDT. The top 32 players will also gain entry into an exclusive $3,200 freeroll on April 20 at 1600 EDT as well as each receiving a ticket to the Full Tilt $750,000 guaranteed worth $216 each. The league is calculated by taking each player’s best five scores from a possible eight.
