Full Tilt Poker Hosting Super Turbo Weekend


From Friday, June 11th to Sunday, June 13th, Full Tilt Pokerwill be hosting Super Turbo Weekend. The action kicked off at 4:00pm ET on Friday and runs for 48 straight hours. All you have to do is fire up the virtual felts of the world’s second largest online poker site, opt in, and head to a Super Turbo Sit and Go.

If you’re unfamiliar with the action-packed Super Turbo format, Full Tilt gives you the lowdown: “Unlike Standard or Turbo tournaments, most Super Turbos feature 300-chip starting stacks – ten times the initial big blind. A nine-handed Super Turbo Sit and Go usually lasts for 15 minutes, compared to one hour for a standard nine-handed Sit and Go.” Given such a fast structure, you’ll have plenty of chances to play.

Your goal is to unlock four pieces of a ticket to the $100,000 Super Turbo Step Freeroll, which takes place on Sunday, June 13th at 6:30pm ET. A total of $100,000 in Steps Tournament tickets will be on the line and the top 20 finishers will bink a $2,100 Step Seven ticket. By the way, that’s only one step away from a $12,000 trip to Las Vegas for the 2010 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event. Accordingly, if you lack a seat to poker’s most prestigious tournament, the Super Turbo Weekend on Full Tilt Poker may be your answer.

The number of pieces of your $100,000 Super Turbo Step Freeroll ticket you’ll receive depends on the buy-in of the Super Turbo Sit and Go. If the tournament has a price tag of less than $5, you’ll get one of the four tickets needed if you cash in it. If the tournament has a buy-in of $5 or more, you’ll get two tickets if you make the money. Different rules apply for Matrix, Step, and Heads-Up Super Turbo Sit and Gos, so check out Full Tilt Poker’s website for more details. As an important side note, private tournaments don’t count.

Make sure to register for the Super Turbo Weekend through the “My Promotions” page in the Full Tilt cashier. Once you receive all four pieces of the ticket, you’ll need to register for the special promotional tournament, as you won’t be automatically entered. If you’re having trouble locating a Super Turbo Sit and Go, never fear. They’re marked with a yellow “T” symbol in the lobby.

The $100,000 Super Turbo Step Freeroll will award more than 2,000 Steps Tickets in total. You read that right: over 2,000 tickets will be in the prize pool. These can even be used during Full Tilt’s annual WSOP Main Event Week, which runs from Monday, June 14th to Sunday, June 20th. The final day of Main Event Week will feature a massive 150-Seat WSOP Main Event Guaranteed that comes with a buy-in of $640.
