Mike “GoLeafsGoEh” Leah outlasted a field of 797 players to win his third FTOPS title last night.

Leah beat online player brunolira heads-up to claim the $32,677 first-place prize in FTOPS XXIII Event 24 $215 No-Limit Hold’em.

The IveyPoker Pro has been racking up online titles over the last few years with three FTOPS titles, one WCOOP title and another title in the defunct UBOC. He also finished third in the 2011 WCOOP Main Event for $663,816.

In total the Toronto native has amassed over $2.4 million in online tournaments.

Last night’s victory also bumps Leah up to fifth place on the FTOPS XXIII leaderboard with 472 points. Unfortunately for Leah he would have to pass Emil “whitelime” Patil and Jeff “YoungSupremacy” Hakim to crack the top three.
