If you wish Valentine’s Day would never come because you are single and dateless, you should know that you are not alone. The good news is that Ladbrokes is aware of this and has something in mind for you for February 14th.
Now you have the chance to earn some bonus Valentine’s Day prizes. For £10, you can enter the Dateless MTT at 10:30 UK time. £5 is used for a bounty, £5 goes into the prize pool, and Ladbrokes is going one step further by adding £250 to the prize pool.
On top of the regular prize pool, the people finishing in the top five will also receive Valentine’s Day bonus prizes. The prize geared towards the men (although ladies can also choose it) is a super fun radio controlled mini helicopter. This little model has a built in gyro and is designed to fly indoors. It is dressed up in flashing lights and can even be controlled from up to 200 feet away.
If you are female or if you have a special someone in mind, you can receive Flora, a Gucci fragrance, as an alternative.
When you load up Ladbrokes, head to the Special section of the tourney lobby to locate this tournament. The game of choice for this event is NL Holdem, and starting stacks are 2,000. If you are late for whatever reason, you will be happy to know that there is 30 minutes late registration.
You may have already gathered that being single is not a requirement for participation in this tournament. Here is a winning idea: BOTH of you play the event, win a bunch of extra cash, win some bonus prizes, and then go out for a special cheaper dinner the day after!

FTOPS XIX on FullTiltPoker.com
Are you ready for some poker excitement? FTOPS XIX is finally here, and it comes as no surprise that it is bigger and better than before. The 45 events in this series has a combined guaranteed prize pool of $22 million, up from the $19 million that was guaranteed in FTOPS XVII. Considering that FTOPS started out in 2006 with just eight events and a combined guaranteed prize pool of just $1 million, you have to admit that the growth has been astounding!
The biggest guarantee of the series is an incredible $3 million for the $600+$40 Main Event. You might think to yourself that the Main Event’s prize pool is a lot larger than usual, and it is possible because of Multi-Entries. This basically means that players can register for the event multiple times and multi-table the tournament under the same account.
If you love large prize pools, you can try the $2,000+$100 two-day event on February 19th. The structure has antes from the start, and you will play 6-max for a guaranteed $2 million prize pool. If you are eager for some heads-up action, you should put February 12th aside for the new $10,300 buy-in heads-up competition. This event also runs over two days, and it has a $500k prize pool.
Full Tilt Poker introduced Multi-Entry tournaments in January, and most people enjoy the concept. Players love having more than one chance to win a given tournament, and the multiple entries greatly increase the prize pools. Fans of Multi-Entries will have 9 events to choose from, including a super turbo event and a KO event. Fans of the exclusive Rush Poker format will also have plenty to play this month.
You might be familiar with the prizes that can be won for making FTOPS final tables. First of all, you receive a special FTOPS jacket for making the final table of an event. If you go on to place 1st in the tournament, you will receive a gold FTOPS jersey and an FTOPS avatar clad in gold. If these prizes don’t impress you much, this one will: if you can win the FTOPS XIX leaderboard, you will be offered a custom avatar and buy-ins for FTOPS XX worth $14k!
