Every Sunday at 18:00 ET, FullTilt hosts the $750,000 Sunday Guarantee (prize pool may be worth even more). If you want to buy-in directly, it’ll cost you $216, but you can always go for the satellites that start at $2 + $0.25. You can also use your Full Tilt Points (FTPs) to register for a satellite for 300 FTPs.
One of the advantages of playing satellites at FT is their buy-in refund for tournaments that you win more than one satellite seat for. In other words, if you win a satellite and then go back and win another satellite for the same tournament, FT will refund the cost of the big event (in this case $216) in tournament dollars. So, if you qualify for two seats to the $750K, you’ll be given 216 T$, which you can spend on more tournaments. To find satellites, locate the main event tourney in the lobby. Open the tournament box and there will be a list of available satellites. You can organize the tournaments by date, buy-in, etc. by clicking on the column heading of your choice.
If you just can’t stop winning satellites, then you should seriously think about going for the weekly $750K Guarantee Satellite Challenge. This challenge is for players who win more than 1 satellite tournament that starts with 1000+ chips, is not a Sit & Go satellite (must be scheduled), and has 6+ players. On your second win, you will automatically be entered into the challenge and your name will go onto the Leaderboard for the event. If you come in first place on the board, you will win $400 cash. Second place will get $200 cash. This is one of the perks of playing at FullTilt—there is always something extra to go for.
You will also very likely find some FullTilt red pros in this tournament, which you can knockout for a hefty bounty. Notice the players column on the left hand side of the tournament box (red players will be listed at the top). Should one of these poker professionals be seated at your table, start paying attention because their chip stack could be worth more than just a double up. You will win back the buy-in of the tournament (up to $200) for each player you knock out. In addition, FullTilt will send you a FT T-shirt that you can proudly wear next time you go to a live game to go along with your story.
If you are into knocking players out, you might enjoy a Knockout Bounty tournament (indicated with a black “K” in the tournament lobby), so don’t forget to check out these promotional tournaments also.
