It is not only cash prizes that will be given away during the tournament series.

Each event winner will also get a gold FTOPS jersey and a gold-jersey avatar.

Full Tilt Series of Poker used to be one of the biggest online tournament series neck to neck with the series like SCOOP but has been experiencing a decrease in numbers during the latest editions. This probably has something to do with the fact that Full Tilt (formerly Full Tilt Poker) has been focusing more on offering other games and live casino.
The possible overlay in some of the tournaments is in fact good news for the grinders but may not be such a good thing for the future of the series with the most likely consequence being lowering the guarantees for the future FTOPS editions.
All that said, big online series are always exciting times for online grinders and many of them will spend the first half of December chasing golden jerseys on Full Tilt. We will try to bring you regular reports once it commences, featuring biggest winners, overall numbers and more!
