      Yes, I'm pretty impressed by it so far, just about completed my first challenge.

      Good to run along with PokerStrategy guides.

      Thanks for posting Tklimas.

      Is these really run by FTP and is not a scam to get our username and password. Sounds to good to be true that while playing at FTP(which btw i already am doing) we can earn additional money by passing those tasks that will improve our game anyway. I dont get what FTP gain besides maybe some players will play more.

      How do you imagine that would be possible to do on fulltiltpoker domain? :) Probably that's their marketing strategy to get players that way and I believe it works quite well.

      Hi slikec,

      I must admit that i personally had the same concerns initially too, but it is now being advertised on their banner in the actual Full Tilt software. Like Tklimas mentioned, only just in the course of being set up and so I expect more & store etc will be added to shortly.

      In my personal opinion it's looks to be a good tool (a nice little extra like Ironman etc) to use alongside PokerStrategy with my linked account, but PokerStrategy has much more detailed strategy advice on a much wider topic base and will still be my primary learning route.

      I've just started re-reading the bronze PokerStrategy articles on sss as I think I might have missed some aspects by rushing through too quickly. Any leak plugging has to be +EV ;) and I need all the help I can get to drag myself out of a current downturn. :D

      I can't believe ya'll are so positive about this stuff.. I mean ffs they are pushing my fishes into folding KJo early in a sng.. I MEAN PLEASE DON'T FEED MY FISHES!!!!... Poker rooms should do what they can to keep enough fishes on their site... but full tilt seem to want to create the atmosphere that full tilt is the toughest site on the planet to beat... like seriously they're are basically pushing no brainer villians into watching some poker strategy videos....

      and yeah the academy credits stuff is probably as bad as every other full tilt promotion... 2k academy points will prolly be worth around $5 r so... It's amazing how full tilt can always come up with something sounding so good and then execute it in such a terrible way... Seriously don't feed my fish :(

      One more promotion that will make the quality of play higher on full tilt than else where... Great... Gotta hate that...

      he wasn't advising to min raise from EP. It was more something he meant as in mixing up your game on the higher limits :) ... still the challenge says min raise monsters few times in EP... lmao min raise EP now means monster on ftp :) ... so if you have 22 and want to represent monster min raise ep

      I like the fulltilt academy it's colourful and fun but ofcourse is never gonna over the indepth strategy that PS has. But it's good to see the pro's play i was watching Eric Lindgren's FTOPS video it's awesome. Gotta say it looked like he was getting preferential treatment with the cards he was catching. I think the challenges are a nice little touch. As for "feeding the fishes" they'll always be fishes. :D

      It sucks. I've completed the SNG challenge in like 2 days and there is nothing else I can do there. I can't even buy anything in the shop since it's not open yet...

      You can retake any challenge up to 10x each apparantly and more are due online over the coming weeks/months.

      You can retake the challenges, but you won't get additional points for taking them over again. I did the SNG challenge twice and only got credit for the first time.
