      Hello,

      So I've just been getting iron man over and over, getting the medals, but now I think I want to try the tourney, but I have a few questions about the whole thing.

      When is this monthly free roll?

      how many people show for it?

      Are there a lot of people who signed up but don't show up?

      Thanks

      the freeroll reduces your rakeback, also the store bonus and FTPs. I believe the 26 and 75 tokens are rakeback free ... can anyone confirm this?

      about the tourney it's supossed to be really soft , most of the players are either sitting out or cash game regs but not tourney players.

      Yeah tokens do not reduce from your rakeback as FT already take a cut of 2$ or 5$ from the 26$ 75$ token respectively.

      Can I use the tokens in SnG or only in Tournaments ?
      If I don't play Tournaments , Can I register with a token and unregister for tournament dollars ?

      Unfortuneately you must play with the $26\75 tokens, if you unreg you get the token back..you can use the tokens to buy into any tourney that is $24+2 but the only SnGs with a buy in o $24+2 are sattellites, although e.g. if you play the 9man Sat to the $750K Gtd, you can then unreg from it and get T$

      Also, you can play the 90man KO which is $24+2 (this is what i use any tokens for) and in those youget $4 per KO so last time i played i busted in 14th or somethingb4 the money but still made $28 by busting 7people

      ok this is how tournaments work, i have played both silver and gold:

      second saturday of every month at around 15:00 ftp time you have the freerolls. usually you have something like 700 entries for silver and 180 places get paid. your rakeback is affected way less than what 180th pays. many people dont even show up.

      try going to the tournaments page, check the completed tournaments and see last months' fields.

      good luck

      Hi Agiz19,

      You can check on your Cashier > My Promotions > Ironman page.

      You do have to opt in and it will ask you whether you would like to receive bonus medals, go for the freeroll or opt out for the moment. Select medals/freerolls obviously.

      There is a second preferences box on the bottom right hand side of this page which you can select/deselect showing your ironman chip next to your name.

      If you still think that you should have qualified, but haven't received the medals yet, you would need to email Full Tilt's support team.

      Best regards,


      Bart
