Ariel “ArielBahia” Celestino wins FTOPS XX Main Event

Tuesday, 3 May 2011

To call the numbers from the FTOPS XX $640 Main Event ‘disappointing’ would not be entirely accurate. To generate a prize pool of over $2.7m with 4,666 entries after losing a huge chunk of players to Black Friday is a remarkable achievement on Full Tilt’s part. One person who won’t be complaining is Ariel Celestino who won $346,696.49 and the FTOPS XX title.

The notable name at the final table where all players were guaranteed $30,795 for their efforts was Anton Wigg. Wigg is a Swedish pro and the reigning champion of EPT Copenhagen with over a million dollars in live tournament cashes. He wound up finishing in sixth place last night, winning $95,186.40.

The final four players struck a four-handed deal before playing it out for the win, resulting in second-place finisher Towelfish taking home $20,000 more than eventual winner Celestino. We’re sure neither of them are too bothered, though. The final payouts were as follows:

1.Ariel “ArielBahia” Celestino - $346,696.49
2.Towelfish - $366,792.88
3.WHOPPWHOPP - $279,393.51
4.Paranoik33 - $288,774
5.CupcakeThePig - $137,180.40
6.Anton “antesvante” Wigg - $95,186.40
7.Nora80 - $64,390.80
8.Youreamaniac - $44,793.60
9.Shevliak87 - $30,795.60
