Seed, Feldman come close at FTOPS XI

Huck Seed

You could blame it on the growing popularity of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series and the immense fields, but pro poker players have essentially been shut out at FTOPS XI.

Former World Champion Huck Seed and WSOPC winner Peter Feldman nearly changed that on Friday. Seed just missed out on the final table of FTOPS XI Event 20, No-Limit Hold'em 6/Max, by coming in 11th, while Feldman came in ninth at FTOPS Event 21, Razz.

Both Full Tilt pros made several thousand for their efforts, but you can be sure they'd been gunning for first place.

Meanwhile on Saturday Chris "Moorman1" Moorman came in in eighth place in Event 23, Pot-Limit Omaha. Moorman has been killing it at MTTs lately and would have to be considered one of the most fearsome online tournament players in the world.

Also starting on Saturday was the epic two-day Event 22, No-Limit Hold'em. The event had a substantial $5,000+$200 buy-in and, at the time this article was published, there were 12 players left, with Adam "Roothlus" Levy third in chips.

Of course the one everyone has been waiting for - the $500+$35 FTOPS XI main event - will kick off at 6 p.m. ET today with recent WSOPE champion John Juanda handling the hosting duties. The event carries a $2.5 million guarantee and should bring out more than 5,000 players with hopes of winning it all.
