Pro makes final table of FTOPS V event

Max Pescatori

Max Pescatori made it to fourth place in the Seven-Card Stud $100,000 guaranteed event Thursday. The $200+$16 buy-in brought out 597 players to try a shot at what was eventually a $119,400 prize pool.

Pescatori took home $6,925.20 for his efforts, which brings him to two cashes so far this series.

Plus, just a day after Greg Mueller. The Canadian pro is a Limit Hold'em specialist who cashed in five events at the World Series of Poker this year, two of which were final-table finishes.

This weekend the series will wrap up with two events on Saturday and the main event Sunday. Phil Ivey will be coming out to host the $2,500+$120 No-Limit Hold'em event Saturday with a $600,000 guaranteed prize pool.

Ivey's event will be a two-day one, starting at 3 p.m. (EDT) on Saturday and ending the day at the 15th level or when the field is down to two tables. It will then resume on Sunday at 3 p.m. to play down to the champion.

Max Pescatori may be looking to set a new record for hosts cashing in their own events on Saturday as well with his $100+$9 Pot-Limit Omaha with re-buys event with a $200,000 guaranteed prize pool.

The event online players have been waiting for, however, is the $2 million guaranteed No-Limit Hold'em event on Sunday, hosted by Paul Wasicka. With a relatively low buy-in of $500+$35 for a shot at the large guaranteed prize pool, you can bet there will be hundreds of players showing up to give Wasicka a run for his money.

For your shot at the money, head to Full Tilt Poker.
