re: Poker & Full Tilt Poker Academy
I haven't gotten into qualifying for the freerolls, although I think they might be good value for the # of entrants. You have to take tests based on the video lessons for those.
The challenges (completing tasks during real money
play) pay academy points which are ftp equivalents. I've earned 15k academy points in the past few months, which is $75 value. Can either trade them for ftp 5k at a time or collect 20k to trade for $100 bonus (something that is not offered in the regular ftp store)
