JohnnyBax wins FTOPS X Event while David Pham goes close

Friday, 14 November 2008

Cliff Josephy, better known to his high-stakes online peers as JohnnyBax, took down a tough field of 1,025 to win the Omaha Eight-or-Better event and his share of a $205,000 prize pool. A difficult final table included British pro and WSOP bracelet-winner Ram Vaswani who eventually finished fourth for $16,913.

In other events, the No-Limit Hold'em 6-max event created a $1.13m prize pool between the 1,032 players who signed up. David Pham took a hefty slice of that by finishing in third place, completing a week which saw 'The Dragon' final table at the WPT Foxwoods event. His A-Q couldn't outrun the pocket threes of eventual winner 'frankly perfect', who ended up eliminating Pham on his way to picking up the $235,625 first prize.

The winners from Tuesday were losebigpots in Event 12, the $200+$16 HA; LaTanyaWilliams in Event 13, $500+$35 H.O.R.S.E.; and imabigkidnow in Event 14, $200+$26 No-Limit Hold'em Turbo.
