FTOPS XIII continued yesterday with the first rebuy tournament of this year’s series. Event #4 was a $200 buy-in no-limit Hold’em tournament, with 1 rebuy and 1 add-on allowed. It featured a $500,000 guarantee, which was easily surpassed as 1,415 entrants bought-in, and there were 1,024 rebuys and 958 add-ons. That raised the total prize pool to $679,400.
The host for this event was Daniele Mazzia, an Italian professional with over 신규 꽁머니in career tournament winnings. He was joined by 18 other Full Tilt Red Pros, however only one of Full Tilt’s finest was able to finish in the money in event 4. That was Scott Clements, finishing in 156th place for $815.28.
Once all the rebuys and add-ons were complete, it came down to playing good tournament poker. Coming out on top was TwistedEcho, who took down $102,382.28 after making a deal with the two other top 3 finishers. The first place payout was set at $146,071, so TwistedEcho took home a little more than $40k less than if the players had stuck with the original payouts.
The second place finisher, YeslmaHick, actually was the biggest money winner, although not by a lot. He took $103,811.37 after the deal. And the last player and biggest beneficiary included in the deal was ELMO_MASK. His piece of the deal was $100,895.15. That’s a significant jump from the $68,619.40 that was set aside for third place.
There were 162 players paid in this event and a big congratulations goes out to all of them. The final table is where everyone wants to be though – with a chance to win it all. Here’s the final 9 and payouts:
Event #2 of FTOPS XIII is in the books, and a major congratulations goes to champion Jive32. This is the 13th installment of FullTilt’s Online Poker Series, and with huge guarantees it should be another successful venture.
Event #2, a 6-max, Double-Stack, Shoot-Out, led to a lot of furious action. For those unaware, a Shoot-Out style tournament is more like a group of 1-table Sit-N-Go’s, where each table plays down to just one player, and then the tables are redrawn. With 1,193 players, the eventual winner was going to have to win his table four times to take down the title, $62,632.50, and more importantly, the FTOPS Gold Jersey Avatar given to the winner of each event.
Twenty-two of FullTilt’s very own professionals played in the event, including host, and two-time WSOP bracelet winner Scott Fischman. Other notables were mixed-game specialist Scott Clements, two-time bracelet winner Jeff Madsen, and WSOP bad-boy Josh Arieh.
Being a shoot-out event, the starting final-table stacks were nearly even. The first player to bust was “Gracie8585″ who took 6th place and $8,589.60. This was his/her 4th best recorded score on FullTilt, well behind a victory in the $50k Guarantee in May for just over $42,000.
Taking 5th place and $12,526.50 was “Mutha Flushaa”, who took down the $90k for nearly $27,000 in March. Following shortly thereafter was “Jsbryan”, who took home the biggest cash of his career, $17,895.
With only three players remaining, it seemed both “CooLJohN22222″ and “POCKET FIVE” had the most experience in big tournaments on FullTilt. However, it was Jive32 who took command, and the championship, earning himself over $62,000. The final hand was a tough one, as CooLJohn22222′s QQ lost to A7 on a 773 flop.
Congratulations to all 144 players who made the money!
