Poker Table

Steven "UFman2" Burkholder picked up a six-figure payday Wednesday with a win in the Full Tilt Online Poker Series XI $1 million guaranteed event.

He's not the only one who's walked away with wins in the Full Tilt Poker series in the last couple days either. Wednesday saw Events 16 and 17 play out, and Thursday brought Events 18 and 19 to the tables.

Event 16 was a $200+$16 Omaha Eight-or-Better event with a $150,000 guarantee. Hosted by Ross Boatman, it drew 818 players to create a total prize pool of $163,600.

Although none of the pros made the top 90 to cash, jaxx23 picked up $37,628 for the win.

Later on Wednesday, 1,091 players ponied up the $300+$22 buy-in to play in the $1 million guaranteed No-Limit Hold'em Six-Max Rebuy.


Isaac Baron made the best run for the Full Tilt pros, ending up in 19th place. Other pros who cashed among the top 120 players were Mike Matusow, Berry Johnston, Jordan Morgan and Brian Hastings.

In the end it came down to UFman2 for the win, though. He picked up $245,696.40 for first place.

On Thursday, Full Tilt Poker offered two more events in the FTOPS XI. First was a Pot-Limit Omaha Heads-Up event with a $100+$16 buy-in. Soren Kongsgaard took on hosting duties for this one as 803 players showed up to play.

When all the money was counted, the $100,000 prize pool was boosted to $160,600. Str8Forward got the best of that, taking down the event for a $27,944.40 win.

Julian Gardner also had a good showing in this Omaha event, cashing in 111th place.

The $300+$22 No-Limit Hold'em 4xShootout Six-Max hosted by Brad Booth wrapped up the FTOPS XI action for Thursday. The $300,000 guaranteed prize pool helped draw in 1,202 players to the event.

They ended up vying for a $360,600 prize pool, and vadka was the player with the biggest chunk of it when all the cards were dealt.

Vadka picked up $63,105 for the win.

The FTOPS XI action continues today and through the weekend with Full Tilt Poker offering up an event with a $2 million guarantee on Saturday plus a $2.5 million guarantee main event on Sunday among the remaining events.
