Full Tilt Poker offering Mini Series of Poker

Like this, except a lot smaller.

Full Tilt Poker has announced it will be running the Mini Series of Poker, which will run on the same days as the actual WSOP but with buy-ins exactly 1/100th of the actual WSOP in Vegas.

It's becoming a popular trend with online poker rooms these days: give players with considerably smaller bankrolls the chance to play in events that mimic the prestigious and format of the real deal in Las Vegas.

The Full Tilt MSOP will run from May 30 through July 5 with a total of 54 events up for grabs (the casino ladies' event and Seniors event have been changed to open-style events because of the online format and the casino employee event has been nixed).

Each winner will receive a special-edition Full Tilt champion's watch in addition to their first-place prize money.

Players can even win a seat into the 2009 WSOP Main Event by working their way up the MSOP leaderboard and finishing on top.

Taking a quick look at the MSOP schedule, players will see there are plenty of $15+$1.50 No-Limit Hold'em events for players with limited bankrolls but there is also a $500+$35 H.O.R.S.E. event for those looking to play something a little more advanced.

The entire MSOP will have a total of more than $700,000 in guaranteed prize money so there is definitely money to be made in the series.
