Dan Smith narrowly misses this year's first FTOPS title.

The first FTOPS since Full Tilt Poker’s recent revival played out yesterday with decorated pro Dan “KingDan23” Smith taking a seat at the final table.

FTOPS XXI #1 was a $200 + $16 multi-entry No-Limit Hold’em tournament that recorded 5,482 buy-ins.

That put just under $1.1 million in the pot with $187,484 going to eventual winner doneNdusted84.

But headlining the final table in terms of star-power was Dan “KingDan23” Smith. The Las Vegas pro has over $4.2 million in live cashes, including wins in tournaments with buy-ins as big as $100,000, and he’s made over $1.6 million playing MTTs online.

Smith finished in fifth place for $52,572, shoving A-T for ten big blinds from the cut-off only to run into pocket aces from the big blind.

Finishing right behind Smith was two-time FTOPS champion JackQKA who won the FTOPS Main Event in 2010.

Also cashing in this event was the UK’s Praz Bansi (20th), Keven “Stamdogg” Stammen (79th), Mike “GoLeafsGoEh” Leah (157th) and James Akenhead (191st).
