Noone becomes a someone at FTP Million Pound Game

The Prize Money

Not many poker fans can claim they've gone toe-to-toe with players like Phil Ivey, Chris "Jesus" Ferguson and Roland De Wolfe and actually come out on top.

Adam Noone is one of the few.

Noone participated in Full Tilt Poker's Million Pound Challenge on Monday and Thursday and ended up with a cool £200,000 in his pocket by the end of the event.

The Million Pound Challenge saw numerous players take part in freerolls hosted on Full Tilt Poker where the top 80 were awarded $1,000 in spending money and a seat in the No-Limit Hold'em tournament at the live event in London.


Noone outlasted all 80 players, winning £50,000 in the process and getting the chance to win much more in a series of heads-up matches against Ivey, Ferguson and De Wolfe.

Noone, who finished 209th in the 2007 WSOP, had the opportunity to win £1 million if he ran the tables on the Full Tilt pros, but in the end he came up just short. He got off to a great start by defeating stone-cold Ivey, and even managed to thwart math genius Ferguson.

Unfortunately for Noone, his luck ran out facing De Wolfe. Perhaps it was the fact De Wolfe had home team advantage, or Noone was simply exhausted from facing two of the world's best players, but that was as far as he got.

For his troubles Noone received £200,000 and the supreme bragging rights of beating Ivey and Ferguson in heads-up.
