A Look at Full Tilt Poker’s FTOPS XXI Big Winners

The first Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) since Black Friday is now in the books and the tournament series came back in a big way, with millions of dollars in prizes awarded, big name poker pros in the winner’s circle, and solid attendance numbers throughout the two-week tournament series. Here is a look at the highlights from the 35-event series that concluded this past Sunday.

  • Event #1 saw the second largest field of the series when 5,482 players registered for the $200 NLHE reentry tournament. The winner of the first FTOPS event since early 2011 was “doneNdusted84” who pocketed over $187k for the victory.
  • Event #17 saw 6,106 players register, the largest field of the series, and the first $100,000 first-place prize awarded since Event #1, to “DrewAce34” who bested Keven “Stamdogg” Stammen heads-up for the title.
  • Event #18 saw the first big name player capture an FTOPS XXI win, as Dani “Ansky451” Stern won the $300 NLHE Multi-entry tournament and walked away with $193,528.50.
  • Event #19 saw another well-known pro in the winner’s circle, Bill Gazes, who captured the $240 PLO8 Knockout title, worth nearly $20,000.
  • Event #20 was the third in a row that went to big named poker pros, as Tayloe “Ambiguosity” Paur bested a field of 387 players in the $1,000 buy-in NLHE tournament, adding close to $75,000 to his poker bankroll.
  • Event #28 saw Canadian poker pro Mike “goleafsgoeh” Leah pickup nearly $20,000 for his win over a field of 245 players in the $300 Razz tournament.
  • Event #31 was a two-day High-Roller tournament with a buy-in of $2,000. When all was said and done a total of 699 players had registered for the multi-entry tournament, creating a massive prize-pool of just under $1.4 million. The winner of the event was “A__theKevlar__2” who picked-up a quarter of a million dollars for the victory.
  • In Event #33 Kevin “-1sickdisease-” Eyster won his second tournament of the series (he also triumphed in Event #25, a $300 PLO tournament) by winning the $100 NLHE RUSH tournament. Eyster’s win put his series earnings past the $100k mark.
  • Event #34, a $240 6-Max Knockout tournament saw a massive filed of over 4,000 players, and in the end it was “ronnyr37617” who captured the first-place prize of $142,609.60.
  • Event #35, the Main Event, was a $600 buy-in NLHE event that attracted a field of 4,766 players, creating a prize-pool of nearly $3 million. The first-place prize of $453,229.40 went to “yadio1111”, who bested a final table that included Sorel “Imper1um” Mizzi and “Zugwat” on his way to victory.
