FTR Gauntlet VII
Season VII of the Gauntlet is set to start this weekend! Beginning Sunday, 18 May 2008, at 3:00pm ET, games are held each and every Sunday at 3:00pm ET and Wednesday at 10:00pm ET. This league has been running since 2004 and with each new season, it's been getting better and more popular! The FTR Gauntlet is a series of $11 buy-in private tournaments hosted at PokerStars. It's free to join the league. All you need is to be a registered FTR Poker Forum member with a PokerStars account and then register for the league here: http://www.flopturnriver.com/poker-league/register.php
This season of the Gauntlet is different from past seasons, with a maximum of 16 out of 32 tournaments to choose from, and is a mixed-games format. You can enjoy other varieties of poker besides the standard no-limit Hold'em tournaments. Players may choose to play any mix of full-table or 6-max no-limit Hold'em, heads-up Hold'em matches or pot-limit Omaha Hi-Lo tourneys. Play well and run good and you'll work your way up the leaderboard. At the end of the season, 3rd Place wins free FTR gear and $75, 2nd Place receives FTR gear and $150, but everyone is shooting for 1st Place which gets the FTR gear and $300, plus the beautiful and coveted FTR Gauntlet crystal trophy! That's not all. During select Gauntlet games, there will be surprise bonus or bounty prizes announced, so make sure you show up for your full 16 games! To see a complete schedule of events, the current leaderboard, and statistics of past seasons, visit the Gauntlet home page here: http://www.flopturnriver.com/poker-league/
After the season, the top 10 players from Season VII and each of the past seasons are eligible to play in the FyrFytr Tournament Of Champions (TOC) invitational tourney. This is the post-season match of all-stars and it's a thrill just to watch, but even better when you qualify to play. So always bring your best game to your 16 events!
