Hollink and Schneider headline Friday's FTOPS
Close to three thousand players came out for Full Tilt's FTOPS VIII on Friday, with big fields competing in both of the No-Limit Hold'em events.
Event 19 - $200+$16 NL Hold'em hosted by Rob Hollink
A total of 1,994 players logged on in this event to compete for a prize pool of $350,000. Three out of the 306 players to make the money were Full Tilt pros, with Aaron Bartley going deepest to finish in 24th for just under $1,600.
Online player Pot Odds 3 defeat edub707 to take the first-place prize of $73,379 and a shiny gold avatar. Edub's second-place finish has moved him into eighth place in the leaderboard standings, just one point behind seventh, and 88 behind first.
Here are the full final-table results:

Event 20 - $200+$16 Limit Hold'em Six-Max hosted by Mike Schneider
For this event, 915 players were seated to compete for their share of a $200,000 prize pool. No Full Tilt pros managed to make the money in this event, leaving the full prize pool for the so-called amateurs.
The final table played out like this:
Mischiefofmagic's sixth-place finish moved him up to seventh on the leaderboard, one point ahead of the aforementioned Edub707.
Perhaps the most anticipated event in the full tilt FTOPS VIII, the $2,500 buy-in NL, two-day event, begins with Day 1 tonight. The guaranteed prize pool of $1.5 million almost guarantees all of the pros, with names both red and black, will be coming out to play.
