Dedication. It's when players hit the table every day. They're tough to beat, because they've stared across miles of felt and flipped over thousands of cards.
There's also another type of dedication, which is when you show your appreciation for a special group of people. That's why every player who reaches Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Iron status will receive special Iron Man medals each month, based on their performance.
Over the course of any month, players can achieve one of four status levels based on their daily accumulation of Full Tilt points. Points are credited at the end of a hand or when the tournament finishes. Check out the image below to see how you can qualify.
You can redeem Iron Man medals in our exclusive Iron Man Challenge Store for tournament tokens, cash bonuses, the chance to create your own tables, and more. The chart below shows the starting number of medals you can receive in your first month of the Iron Man Challenge, based on your performance:
|Iron Man Status||Month 1|
Qualifying for our Iron Man Challenge begins May 1, 2010 at 00:00 ET and runs until May 31, 2010 at 23:59 ET.
Play More to Win More
In future months, you can earn additional medals in two ways:
- Maintain your current Iron Man Challenge level for consecutive months
- Move from one level to a higher one in consecutive months
The chart below shows the number of medals you can receive each month.
IRON MAN MEDALS
|IRON MAN STATUS||MONTH 1||MONTH 2-3||MONTH 4-6||MONTH 7-12||MONTH 13-18||MONTH 19-24||MONTH 25-30||MONTH 31-36||MONTH 37+|
If, for some reason, you fail to qualify for any of our Iron Man Freerolls in a particular month, your status will be reset and you will begin earning medals at Month 1 levels when you re-qualify.
Iron Man Bonuses
As a reward for our Iron Man Challenge players, we are offering special bonuses that can earn you over $100,000 in additional prize money or extra Iron Man Challenge medals.
If you're just starting out in our Iron Man Challenge, be sure to check out our One A Day Freeroll where earning just one point per day each day of the month will qualify you to play in a special $2,000 Freeroll.
For some players, becoming a Full Tilt Poker Iron Man is about more than medals. That's why we offer you the chance to put your metal to the test in one of our four monthly Freeroll tournaments.
Compete for the first-place prize money and the chance to face the other three Freeroll champions in a four-player shootout tournament where the winner will walk away with an additional $5K.
What's more, the winner of the Sit & Go tournament will go on to play three of our red Full Tilt Poker pros in consecutive heads-up matches. Beat one pro, and we'll give you $5,000 on top of your previous winnings. Beat two pros, and we'll give you $10,000. If you are a Bronze, Silver or Gold Freeroll winner and beat all three, we'll give you $50,000. But, if you are the winner of the Iron Man Freeroll and scoop all three matches, we'll give you an extra $50,000 for a total of $100,000!
Our monthly Freerolls will be held on June 12, 2010, followed by our four-player Sit & Go on June 13, 2010. Our heads-up matches will take place on June 19, 2010.
If you'd prefer not to play in one of these monthly Freerolls, you can exchange your tournament entry for additional Iron Man medals. If, for example, you qualify for our Gold Freeroll in your fifth month, you can exchange your tournament entry for 70 Iron Man medals, as shown below.
|Iron Man Status||Bonus Medals|
This means, by reaching Gold in your fifth month and opting out of the Freeroll, you will collect a total of 170 medals for the month. You may decide whether you would like to opt in or out of a tournament at any time before the monthly qualifying period ends.
Iron Man Plus
For those of you who go beyond 200 points a day, we have Iron Man Plus. By earning a minimum of 500 Full Tilt Points in a day - and qualifying for any of the four Iron Man Levels - you can earn extra Iron Man medals for use in our Iron Man Store. With each new plateau you reach, you will earn more medals. See the chart below for all the details.
|Full Tilt Points||Medals|
|Every Additional 1,000 Points||10|
Remember, becoming an Iron Man isn't easy - it takes a lot of hard work and dedication. But for those who are willing to go above and beyond, we have a special bonus just for you.
