chips and cards

One of the biggest bargains for tournament players last week was the main event of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series X on Sunday. The $500+$35 buy-in got players a shot at a guaranteed $2.5 million prize pool to wrap up the series on Full Tilt Poker.

The guarantee turned out to be a big draw as 5,225 players took to the virtual felt for the event hosted by David Pham. Brandon Adams went the deepest of the pros, getting booted just outside the final table in sixth place.

The winner was amak316, who received $550,000 for first place. The final-table results were:

Place Name Prize
1st amak316 $550,000
2nd KaKeTKa $362,500

4th Buster Love $195,000
5th NEONPILS99 $137,500
6th dpowell $90,000

With the win, amak316 becomes another player sharing the 28th-place spot on the FTOPS X leaderboard.

Event 23: $100+$9 Pot-Limit Omaha with Rebuys

Dario Alioto took the lead for the third event taking place on Saturday. With a $400,000 guarantee on the line, 962 players were more than happy to follow him into action in the $100+$9 Pot-Limit Omaha event.

The two pros who made the money were Stuart Paterson and German pro Sandra Naujoks. Naujoks placed the highest, busting in 16th place.

Antoshka turned out to be the big winner in the event, however. Coming in first place, Antoshka picked up $92,000 and also shares 28th place on the FTOPS X leaderboard.

The final table played out as follows:

Place Name Prize
1st Antoshka $92,000
2nd MissOldy $58,000
3rd deerchaser21 $43,000
4th LuckyKuzmich $33,000

6th CrazyMarco $18,000
7th JMan772 $12,000
8th Pillage Bik $9,360

Cre8ive has had a good FTOPS X series as well. With a final-table cash in this event, he ended up finishing up the FTOPS X series in second place on the leaderboard.

Event 24: $120+$9 No-Limit Hold'em Knockout

The final event before the main event on Sunday was a No-Limit Hold'em Knockout hosted by Erich Kollman. The event had a $500,000 guarantee and drew in 7,000 players.

That meant a $700,000 prize pool with more than $130,000 left for the winner of the event.

The payouts stretched to the top 720 players, two of whom were Sandra Naujoks and Josh Arieh. Arieh actually made a really good run in the event, cashing for $630 in 93rd place.

The winner, and yet another player to share 28th place on the FTOPS X leaderboard, was slaskovic. The final-table results were:

Place Name Prize
