FTOPS VI update: Events 3-5

The Money

The Full Tilt Online Poker Series is continuing its sixth go-round with Events 3 through 5 playing out over the last few days.

Friday saw Jon "PearlJammed" Turner, one of the most successful online tournament players in the world, take on hosting duties for the $200+$16 Pot-Limit Hold'em event.

The event drew 1,468 players all looking for a piece of the $300,000 guaranteed prize pool. Once again the pros were left outside the money and it was mischiefofmagic who came out on top to claim the $56,400 first-place prize.

The top nine players from Event 3 are:

7th Jucifer $7,350

Max Pescatori and Kenny Tran both managed to crack the cash barrier in this tournament, but it was allaround22 who took the top spot and the $66,220 top prize.

Once again it was a tough playing field and none of Full Tilt Poker's pros made it into the cash, but Greg_Chimp walked away from the tournament with $86,630.40 to add to his bankroll after taking the first-place spot.
