Sunday results in big FTOPS X crowds
Two more events played out in the Full Tilt Online Poker Series X on Sunday. No-Limit Hold'em was featured in both, and they drew thousands of players for some hefty guaranteed prize pools.
The first event of the day was a $240+$16 No-Limit Hold'em Knockout Six-Max hosted by Andy Black. The Irishman was sitting atop a $600,000 guaranteed prize pool that ballooned to nearly $700,000 by the time the 3,499 players were seated and ready to go.
Black wasn't the only pro in the mix either. Scott Clements was there to claim some money for 341st place, and Brandon Adams scored in 375th place.
The big winner of the event was whatariver1, who takes home $137,153.80 for first place.

The second event of the day was hosted by Howard Lederer. The former extra-large poker pro may be much thinner these days, but he was put in charge of one of the heftier prize pools guaranteed by Full Tilt Poker for the FTOPS X.

A couple of familiar names earned a piece of that money. Berry Johnston cashed in 189th place, while dmmikkel picked up money for 177th place.
The winner of the event was bigdogpckt5s, who earns $277,929.72 for the win. The final-table results were:
