FTOPS X Event #1: 'davin77' Wins Six-Max Event

Thursday, 6 November 2008

Full Tilt's FTOPS X series has begun with Event #1, a $200+16 NL hold'em 6-max tourney with $1,000,000 guaranteed. A massive field of 5,124 players set a prize pool of $1,024,800.

With the blinds creeping up every 12 minutes it didn't take long for the final table to be set eight and half hours later. Heading into the final six, eventual winner davin77 was trailing chip lead SisterSue056 who had 7,882,905 to davin77's 4,860,872. The tournament didn't go well for SisterSue056 though after they lost a coin flip with pocket sevens against the QJo of 'smoothustler'. SisterSue056 was eliminated in fourth when their K8o was crushed by the K9 of davin77.

Taking a 3-1 chip lead to the heads-up battle, davin77 soon saw off Bog25 when his A7 was ahead to Bog25's KQ. No kings or queens on the board meant Bog25 finished runner-up for $119,900, while davin77 logged off $195,757 richer.

I wish I could win one of those things.

Final Results:
1. davin77 - $195,757.30
2. Bog25 - $119,901.60
3. smoothustler - $83,213.76
4. SisterSue056 - $61,488
5. AlwaysTrustMe - $45,091.20
6. FaGi - $30,744
