The PokerStars WCOOP is still going but Full Tilt Poker have had their own affairs to sort with the FTOPS XVII concluding and the MiniFTOPS Main Event awarding a prize of more than $1,000,000 to hundreds of players.

Grayson Nichols, who plays online as The_Dean221, has over $1.3m in tournament earnings on PokerStars and now, after beating a 15,527-strong field in the $75 buy-in MiniFTOPS Main Event, more than $1.5m in tournament earnings on Full Tilt Poker.

Nichols will receive a limited edition MiniFTOPS jacket and a silver jersey as well as the tidy $152,087 payday made after a heads-up deal with runner up Michael “castellimich” Castelli who won $125,222.
