FTOPS Weekend Wrap-Up
February 9, 2022

The Full Tilt Online Poker Series XI continued to roll along over the weekend, with a total of 5 events taking place during Saturday and Sunday.   

All five FTOPS events easily surpassed their posted guarantees, a trend that has run through all ten of the events that have been completed thus far. 

Event #6, a $500 + $35 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha 6-Max tournament, was the first FTOPS event on Saturday and one that attracted 896 players.  The event was hosted by Gus Hansen and had a first prize of $95,648 - a prize eventually taken down by online player “NoPasaran.” 

Event #7, the second Saturday FTOPS tournament, was a $100 buy-in No Limit Hold ‘em Rebuy event with a posted guarantee of a half million dollars.  This tournament attracted 2,235 players and destroyed the guarantee by more than $180,000.  The winner of the event was “The Universe112,” who earned $140,358.39 after defeating a final table that included among others, respected online pro Jon “apestyles” Van Fleet. 

The first Sunday event (#8), hosted by Bruce Buffer, was also a No Limit Hold ‘em match but this time a 6-Max Knockout tournament.  The $240 + $16 event, beat the $600 grand guarantee by nearly $300,00 and was taken down by online player “Chancew” for $168,517.84. 

Sunday’s midday tournament was hosted by Chris Ferguson and had a $535 buy-in.  Online player “Luie Sojo” won that event and $115,884, after defeating the rest of the 1,132 person field- a field that created a (seemingly evil) prize pool worth $666,000. 

The final FTOPS event of the weekend was Event #10, a $300 + $22 buy-in No Limit Hold ‘em tournament with a posted guarantee of $1,500,000.  Even with so high a guarantee, the players at Full Tilt Poker once again surpassed expectations, by building a prize pool worth nearly $1,600,000.  The player that bested the rest of the 5,325 person field in that event was “gboro780,” who earned $275,600.70 for the victory, plus a gold jersey and FTOPS avatar. 

Even with so many successful events now in the books, it may be hard to believe that FTOPS XI is at this point not even half way completed.  For your chance to get in on the rest of the FTOPS action, join Full Tilt Poker now simply by clicking here.
