FTP Sunday MTT Schedule & Other Popular Tournaments
After Poker Stars, Full Tilt Poker is the second largest poker site. As Poker Stars now own and operate both sites, you can make transfers between each poker room. Effectively you are twice as spoiled for choice when it comes to playing multi-table tournaments on Poker Stars or Full Tilt Poker.
Like most poker sites, Full Tilt Poker has its own annual flagship series of online tournaments. There is the widely renowned FTOPS and more recently, they've launched the MTOPS, a series of tournaments geared towards micro stakes player. Both series offer mouth-watering guaranteed prize pools running into millions of dollars. Overlays are not common and guarantees are often exceeded due to the size of the fields.
I'll discuss the each online series in greater detail in other articles that discuss these specifically, but for now I will focus on the Sunday major schedule on Full Tilt Poker, along with the more popular tournaments and guaranteed prize pools scheduled throughout the week.
