Four more winners at FTOPS VII
Full Tilt Poker's latest iteration of the FTOPS is rolling along with thousands of players taking part in the popular online series.
With Events 4, 5, 6 and 7 all playing out over Friday and Saturday here's a look at the big winners in each tournament.
Event 4: $200+$16 buy-in Pot-Limit Hold'em was hosted by Gus Hansen but it was probably the least pro-heavy event of the last two days. A total of 1,215 players turned out to get in on some Pot-Limit action and Full Tilt managed to smash their guarantee of $100,000 by offering a prize pool of $243,000. In the end it was Prokurists who took down the $53,460 prize for first place.

Event 5 was a limit Hold'em 6-max affair with a $200+$16 buy-in. A total of 1,203 players turned out for the event which made for a prize pool of $240,600 easily beating Full Tilt's guarantee of $150,000. Former hairstylist and current Full Tilt Poker pro Marco Traniello made it farther than of the other Full Tilt pros by coming in 89th for $384. Other familiar faces included Eric "Rizen" Lynch who managed to come in 62nd for $529 and Darrell "Gigabet" Dicken who placed 38th for $745th. Host Clonie Gowen was unaccounted for. First place would eventually go to Bedard who took down $49,202 for his efforts.

Pot-Limit Omaha 6-max was the name of the game for Event 6 and 774 players paid the $500+$35 buy-in to create an epic prize pool of $387,000. It should come as no surprise that online Pot-Limit Omaha master David Benyamine went deep into the field and managed to place 18th for $2,825. It is unknown where host Niki Jedlicka finished. The eventual winner was gaffel5 who won $83,205.
Event 7 $100+$9 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em with rebuys was hosted by Peter "Nordberg" Feldman, winner of the 2007 WSOPC Harrah's Rincon. An astounding 2,254 players registered to make a massive prize pool of $663,500. German Pro Eddy Scharf was the talk of Full Tilt pros after he placed 152nd for $663 although both Rino Mathis and Scott Fischman also cashed for $464. Online player Merovingian took down first place for an incredible $121,719.
