The Ultimate Poker Game Has Arrived, 25-Game Mix!

Full Tilt Poker had a surprise for the players in this year's Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) XXV by introducing a brand new game type; 25-Game Mix!. At first, I thought this was a joke or one-off event since it fell on 1st April but it appears that a similar MTT will run in 3 weeks time at the miniFTOPs, albeit with a smaller buy in.

Details about the MTT:
Name: FTOPS Event #6 25-Game
Buy in:  $200 + $15
Re-entry: Maximum 2 (I think)
Super Stack: Players Start With 5000 Chips
Turbo: Levels Increase every 3 minutes (More like a Hyper)
6-Max: This makes sense since there aren't enough cards in the deck for some games (6 Card Omaha, 2-7 Triple Draw etc)

Heres the run down on the games and the betting structures:

As you'll expect, there are the usual games in here which are also found in all of the mixed games. But there are also much much rarer games, which are even seldom run as individual MTTs such as A-5 Triple Draw and 5 Card Stud.

Suffice to say I am extremely excited for this MTT and I sincerely hope that FTP decides to run this at the micro level.
