Jon Van Fleet wins $109r FTOPS XVI event

Tuesday, 27 April 2010

The insanely high 16th incarnation of Full Tilt Poker’s flagship tournament series has kicked off good and proper with a multitude of events guaranteeing $18m across the board.

Jon Van Fleet, better known by his online tournament handle apestyles, has secured his first six-figure cash since 2007 by taking down the $109 NL with rebuys for $123,600. Van Fleet is consistently ranked on Pocket Fives’s top tournament players so it’s nice for his dues to be well and truly paid.

The UK got in on some FTOPS action during the $216 turbo NL event – despite finishing in a podium spot outside of first place, UK player trader0811 got the lions’ share of the prize pool after a deal shipped him $72,000.

Satellites to future FTOPS XVI events are running now at Full Tilt Poker.
