$4 Million Guaranteed FTOPS XXVIII Schedule Released

Full Tilt

Those of you who love high buy-in, large field tournaments better keep March 15 through march 29 completely free because those are the dates that the latest edition of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) takes place.

The next instalment of the FTOPS is the 28th in poker history and it could well be the largest. Thirty-five events are on the schedule with buy-ins ranging from $100 up to a bankroll-damaging $2,500. As you'd expect from the FTOPS, each event has a substantial guarantee, which when you add them all together come to a combined $4 million.

Each event should attract some of the best poker players in the business with the $2,500 buy-in High Roller being one for the railbirds to feast their eyes on. Another tournament that is sure to have the eyes of the poker community gazing at it is the $1,000 buy-in Main Event that runs on March 29.

Thanks to its re-entry format, the FTOPS XXVIII Main Event should have no problem at all in reaching its lofty $1,000,000 guarantee.

Players who reach the final table of any of the 35 events receive a limited edition FTOPS jacket, with the events' champions receiving a gold FTOPS jersey, an FTOPS jacket and the famous gold-jersey avatar.
