The FTR Gauntlet is our own private online poker league. With such a community of both skillful and cool poker players here at FTR, we thought this would be a great venue for us to compete and have a ton of fun.
How does it work?
This free-to-play season consists of a series of 10 tournaments, each held on Sunday at 2.30pm ET (7.30pm GMT). Your top 8 scores will count, with the winner being the player with the highest number of points! Cash prizes will be given to the top 3 players - $120 for the winner, as well as the coveted FTR Gauntlet Trophy and bragging rights! The runner-up will receive $60, while 3rd place will receive an FTR t-shirt. As well as this, the post-season FTR Tournament of Champions will run, with the top 10 players being eligible. There will also be bonus prizes, including bounties, so don't worry if you run bad!
FTR will keep an up-to-date leaderboard on the website, which will be updated after each game with the latest point standings.
