Pros pwn FTOPS XIII
The 13th edition of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series is halfway through its 25-event schedule and a number of big name pros have made their mark on the series once again.
Monday night, Kevin "GetPWN3D" Saul beat 1,309 others in the $200+$16 Half Pot-Limit Hold'em, Half Pot-Limit Omaha event for a $57,640 score.
Saul, whose biggest live cashes came from a WPT Bellagio Cup win in 2007 and an 8th place finish in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure earlier this year, is clearly a big fan of the late summer FTOPS, having collected over $270,000 from FTOPS IX in August 2008.
The $17,081.60 cash represented yet another bridesmade finish for the respected Bloch, who famously finished second in the first WSOP $50k H.O.R.S.E. event won by Chip Reese in 2006, then again at both the NBC National Heads-Up Championship and the WSOP $10,000 World Championship of Pot-Limit Hold'em in 2008.
Courtesy of a final-table finish in the Six-Max Knockout event and two other small cashes, online guru Isaac Baron actually leads the Red Pro ranks so far with over $28k in winnings.
Notably, Craig "MrsESPN" Gray finished second and Alex "AJKHoosier1" Kamberis took fifth in the $500+$35 No Limit Hold'em Heads-Up event.
While the last FTOPS was marred by a number of large overlays, all 12 events this time around have exceeded the guaranteed prize pools and with 13 events still to play, including the $500+$35 Main Event this Sunday, August 16th, a lot more action is expected.
