PokerRoader Wins FTOPS 5K
November 17, 2021
PokerRoad's newest blogger, Amit "AMAK316" Makhija, just took down one of the most prestigious tournaments in all of online poker - the Full Tilt Online Poker Series $5,000 + $200 buy-in, NL Hold 'em 6-Max.

This highly difficult two-day event saw 500 of the top online and live players in the world sign up to play including David Pham, "CrazyZachary," Taylor Caby, Jeff Madsen, "PearlJammed," "AJKHoosier1," Allen Cunningham, Gus Hansen and Erick Lindgren. Makhija won the event in great form, jumping out to an early lead, ending Day1 as the chip leader and then handily taking down the event without ever seeming to be in real jeopardy. For the impressive win, Amit banked $550,000 and a custom gold FTOPS Jersey avatar.

The final table results for the FTOPS Event #22 were as follows:

1st. amak316- $550,000
2nd. KaKaTKa- $362,500
3rd. PureCash25- $262,500
4th. Buster Love- $195,000
5th. NEONPILS99- $137,500
6th. dpowell- $90,000

Full Tilt "Red Pro" Brandon Adams just missed the final table, seventhbokking for $57,500, as did fellow PokerRoad blogger Kevin "GetPWN3D" Saul (11th $33,750).
