Sweat Tournaments at Full Tilt Poker
To make the upcoming $25K Heads-Up PLO Championship even more exciting for spectators, Full Tilt Poker offers Sweat Tournaments connected to the popular Full Tilt pro players.
After the success of the $25,000 Heads-Up Championship in May 2008, Full Tilt Poker now launches the $25,000 Heads-Up Pot Limit Omaha Championship.
The HU PLO Championship starts on September 6 and goes into its final stages the day after, on September 7.
Who will you sweat?
To spice up the experience for all railbirds who intend to watch the final battle, Full Tilt offers four separate Sweat Tournaments, starting on Sunday, September 7, at 4 PM (ET).
Each Sweat Tournament is connected to one Full Tilt Poker pro, for example, Phil Ivey, Gus Hansen or Patrik Antonius. When joining a Full Tilt Poker Tournament of this kind, players must choose which pro they want to sweat in the big tournament.

Bonus payout to final table finishers
If one of those pros wins the Championship, all players who reached the final table of the corresponding Sweat Tournament receive a share of a $5,000 bonus:
Of course, this bonus comes on top of the regular prize money.
The Sweat Tournaments are $10+1 multi table tournaments played out in Pot Limit Omaha, and you will find them from the game lobby of the $25K Heads-Up PLO Championship.
