Brammer Wins FTOPS Opener

Tuesday, 6 August 2013

FTOPS XXIII got under way at Full Tilt Poker over the weekend and already there's some serious British success with tournament cashing machine Chris 'kid_bramm' Brammer taking the honours in the series opener.

A total of 3,503 players bought into the $500 re-entry contest, smashing the $500,000 guarantee in the process. Former FCOOP runner up Brammer took the lion's share of that $700,600 prize pool, scooping $129,611 after defeating the payday loan sounding '4CashNow' heads up for the title. We caught up with Chris last year. Read the full interview here.
