German online player Itahaschi outlasted 3,327 players to win the $635 buy-in FTOPS XXIII main event for $270,828 last night.

Itahaschi may have finished first but it was heads-up opponent DiaperSniper14 who took down the most cash thanks to a three-way deal. The Canadian player earned $301,118 for coming in second.

Noted Aussie grinder Rayan “rkruok” Nathan came in fourth place for $131,749.

Meanwhile Faraz “The-Toilet 0” Jaka, who is somehow still searching for his first FTOPS title, looked primed for a final-table run but ended up finishing 26th place for just over $6k.

The FTOPS XXIII main event easily eclipsed the $1.5 million guarantee by offering a $1.9 million prizepool.
