FTP Montreal Festival hosted by Playground Poker Club

Montreal in dusk

Poker moves to Canada courtesy of Full Tilt Poker who is behind the huge Montréal Festival featuring a $1 million guaranteed main event. For two weeks, poker players are expected to travel to Canada to compete in one of the 17 events at the Playground Poker Club.

The highlight of this string of tournaments is Event 8 which is scheduled for September 27th and has a guaranteed prize pool of C$1 million. Those who decide to buy in for the Main Event will be set back $1100, while those who don’t have a sizable bankroll can earn their place by winning the qualifiers. As always, the prize pool is expected to surpass the guaranteed amount, as this is a multi-entry tournament with three start days.

Regardless of how they choose to participate in the Main Event, Full Tilt Poker players who suffered an untimely elimination will get a second chance. They will be awarded a bonus ticket for buying into the $25,000 Second Barrel Freeroll on Sunday, scheduled for October 13. Those who participate in events 1, 10, 12, 14 and 17 are also eligible for such a ticket, as long as they are Full Tilt Poker players.

This makes it the best time of the year for those who don’t have a Full Tilt Poker account to open one, as their members will also receive branded merchandise. Those who make the final table will not only compete for serious cash, but are also guaranteed to receive a custom jacket featuring distinctive Full Tilt Poker symbols and a personalised avatar to make your online presence unmistakable!

The first qualifiers for the main event began as early as August 19, with the buy-in for satellites starting at $1.1 and going all the way up to $100 +9 dollars. These qualifiers run on a weekly basis and those interested should make no plans for Sunday’s at 19:00 ET. Check out the full schedule for Full Tilt Poker Montreal Festival below:
