Erick Lindgren Fans
Erick Lindgren hosted a huge poker tournament of nearly $600,000 in prize money. The MiniFTOPS schedule features the same events as the regular FTOPS that concluded last month, but each buy-in is one-tenth of the price. The 11-day series still has $6 million in guaranteed prize money, including a $1 million guaranteed prize pool for the $70 buy-in Main Event on Sunday, December 19th. There is also a Two-Day $200 buy-in No Limit Hold’em tournament starting on Saturday, December 18th. That event, hosted by Erick Lindgren, has a $600,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Erick Lindgren is set to be part of the ‘Big Heat’ that will begin in January. Leading off the new season beginning on January 3, 2011 will be “Big Heat,” a $100,000 buy-in freezeout with $600,000 going to the winner. This match showcases six of poker’s biggest stars in John Juanda, Erick Lindgren, Phil Ivey, Huckleberry Seed, Tom Dwan, and Phil Galfond. Look for the action in both this match and in the “Idol” match to be especially intense with so much money on the line.
