Two days of play that included two $1.5 million guaranteed events saw some serious action at Full Tilt Poker for the Full Tilt Online Poker Series XI.

On Sunday, Steve Wong, Vivek Rajkumar, Ben Roberts, Nordberg, Marco Liesy and more.

Monday's events included a $200+$16 HA hosted by Eddy Scharf, plus another shot at a $1.5 million guaranteed prize pool with $1,000+$60 No-Limit Hold'em Second Chance event hosted by Nick Schulman.

The HA event, which switches between Pot-Limit Hold'em and Pot-Limit Omaha, drew 1,136 players to boost the guaranteed $150,000 prize pool to $227,200. Ketse won the event to pick up $51,120, and Ali Sarkeshi and Marco Liesy also picked up cashes again.

A second chance at a $1.5 million guaranteed prize pool didn't draw quite as many players as the first chance on Sunday did, but 1,630 players were still willing to take a shot, and ended up creating a $1,630,000 prize pool.

Although Matt Hawrilenko, Ryan Daut, Huck Seed and TheWacoKidd made a good run, grinding their way into the top 162 to cash, it was Steve "Zugwat" Silverman who picked up the win for a $350,450 top prize.

Full Tilt Poker's series continues today with a $200+$16 No-Limit Hold'em with one rebuy and one add-on event hosted by Dag Mikkelson at 2 p.m. ET.

At 9 p.m. ET, Andy Bloch will host a $500+$35 H.O.R.S.E. event. Both events have $300,000 guaranteed prize pools.
