FTOPS X Series Off To A Flying Start

FTOPS X Series Off To A Flying Start

Monday, 10 November 2008

Full Tilt Poker’s tournament series FTOPS is in its tenth incarnation and after a lofty promise of a $15,000,000 prize pool, it looks well on its way to delivering big winners.

Notoriously noisy Mike Matusow started off the series with a $1,000,000 Guaranteed No-Limit Hold'em 6-max event which eclipsed the hefty guarantee by nearly $25,000. This was won by davin77 who took down the first-place prize of nearly $200,000.

Sigi Stockinger hosted the second event, a Pot-Limit Omaha Knockout with a $256 buy-in and a $200,000 guarantee. Full Tilt pro Chip Jett cashed, making it two for two in FTOPS X after his cash in Event #1. The $51k first prize was won by TeamShizz.

CardRunners co-founder Andrew Wiggins hosted Event #3 which was a $535 No-Limit Hold'em Triple Shootout. The lucky winner was mrvogt who found himself $76k richer after the event.

Aaron Bartley matched Chip Jett’s two cashes in Event #3 but eclipsed Jett with an impressive third-place finish in the $600,000 Guaranteed No Limit Hold'em event with One Rebuy and One Add-on. He won $64,500 for this deep run in the event won by GrampaJeff for $138,000.
