F.t.o.p.s. 26 Gets Underway

By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated Aug 8, 2014

$4.5 million in guaranteed prize pools up for grabs

Sunday saw the launch of the 26th edition of Full Tilt's popular Full Tilt Online Poker Series with 31 events and guaranteed prize pools worth $4.5 million.
Poker fans from all over the world flocked to the virtual tables, getting FTOPS XXVI off to a rollicking start in a competition that will see a diversity of poker genres played by competitors in a slew of different events, with the series running through to August 17.
Motivated players will be chasing cashes and the opportunity to win a gold FTOPS jersey and avatar to show their poker prowess, and the ace who emerges at the end of the tournament in the top position on the leaderboard will receive a four-month Black Card Pro sponsorship contract and 100 percent cash back on all his or her action.
The big one is the main event, a NLHE competition with a $635 buy-in which takes place on the last day of the tournament and carries a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
