Pros make a splash in FTOPS XI Stud

Berry Johnston

In typical Full Tilt form, the prize pool for the third FTOPS event, $200+$16 Stud, exceeded the guarantee, with 593 players playing for their share of $118,600.

Winning the FTOPS Event 3 title, and the $27,500 that goes with it, was online player AsMetzmagnyAs, who defeated BeNzit085 in heads-up for the title.

Out of the 64 players to make it into the money, four of them were Full Tilt red name pros. Berry Johnston made it the deepest, making a brief final-table appearance before finishing in sixth place.

David Bradley in 38th finished slightly ahead of Josh Arieh, who finished his run in 45th place.

The final red name pro to make the money in the event was none other than Huckleberry Seed, who finished his tournament run in the 57th spot.

Here's how the final table shaped up:

1st AsMetzmagnyAs $27,503.34
2nd BeNzitO85 $18,086.50
3rd InvisibleEnigma $12,571.60
