The Twitter Poker Tour is pleased to announce a brand new series of events to be hosted on Full Tilt Poker.  The Twitter Poker Tour Championship Series will begin on Sunday, April 3rd, and feature 26 amazing events that will span the scope of several online poker disciplines, with buy in levels that are open to players of all bankrolls.  The tournaments will feature events from $2 to $50, and will offer incredible bonus prizes in the form of cash, tournament buy ins, and poker training to its players.

“For a long time now, our community has been asking us about branching out the TPT to include games other than No-Limit Hold’em,” says Geoff Manning, Twitter Poker Tour President and COO. “The Thursday Night points events, which have been enormously successful in creating a fun home-game type of environment, has sparked interest from a great number of players who wish to play different games and on more than just one night.”

The very first TPTCS will replace the weekly Twitter Poker Tour Thursday Night events and the monthly leaderboard.  Players in the TPTCS will compete in 25 Preliminary Events on Sunday afternoons, and Tuesday and Thursday evenings.  Winners in each event will qualify for a freeroll “Tournament of Champions” which will offer incredible tournament cash prizes to the prize pool, and an opportunity to compete for some of Full Tilt Poker’s biggest online prizes.

“The TPTCS Tournament of Champions will reward 3 players with Medium and High Stakes tournament prizes, giving players a chance to freeroll their way to hundreds of thousands of dollars,” Says Manning. “Last year we qualified a player from a series of $2-$10 events to the World Series of Poker.  We also had one of our members work their bankroll up to compete in the North American Poker Tour Main Event.  Now, the sky’s the limit. It’s entirely possible that one of our players may turn a $2 buy in into a major tournament championship!”

Among the list of TPTCS Events, the schedule will include a $50 Buy-in Players Championship, a $25 Buy-in Heads Up Championship, and a Multi Entry Main Event with the winners taking home more than just the first place cash.  Winners of each of these Sunday championship events will receive large tournament cash prizes, including a $216 Step 4 Ticket which is redeemable for Tournaments on Full Tilt Poker such as the Sunday $750k Guarantee, The Sunday Mulligan, or any of the online qualifiers for live tournament packages available through satellites online.

“Not only are the events expected to offer great prize pools, but the list of Full Tilt Pro players that have expressed interest in hosting the tournaments continues to grow,” says Manning.  “We’ve already lined up some of the top names on Full Tilt Poker to host a great number of events.  I can’t wait to release the schedule and the names.  I think everyone is going to be very excited.”

Finally, the TPTCS will feature a Player of Series Leaderboard, which will award the best player of the series their own entry into a $216 Event.  In addition, the player of the series will receive a live poker training course at a DeepStacks Live event courtesy of Deepstacks.com. Says Manning “with thousands of dollars in cash and prizes, the TPTCS is an online series that no poker player will want to miss.”
