FTOPS XXI Day 3 Highlights

Full Tilt FTOPS XXI events continue to attract a huge number of entrants, as all but one of the seven tourneys played so far have eclipsed the guaranteed prize pools.

Three more winners were crowned Tuesday, the first being “Miklerer” in Event #5, $216 buy-in Pot-Limit HA (Hold’em/Omaha High) 6-Max. Falling five players shy of the 500 required to meet the guaranteed prize pool of $100,000, eight hours of play culminated in a final table deal that allowed runner-up “TheKoalaBear” to take home $500 more than champion “Miklerer.” Jeremiah “Believer8219” Vinsant finished in 13th place to sit in a first place tie with “fowirls” in the FTOPS XXI Leaderboard competition. Vinsant also notched a sixth place finish in Event #2 and 15th place in Event #3.

Another $216 entry fee was required for Event #6, with 377 players buying in to the H.O.R.S.E. format to more than triple the $25,000 guarantee to $75,400. Russian players proved formidable in mixed action as the top three finishers all booted up from the Russian Federation. The first place prize of $18,699 went to “mrcall912,” who held off fellow countrymen “knluiy” and “Manechka.” Forty players cashed in the event, including Chance “Chances Cards” Kornuth, who took home $791.70 for 15th place after also finishing sixth the day before in Event #4.

In Event #7, $322 No-Limit Hold’em Super Turbo Knockout Multi-Entry drew 1,391 entrants that combined to bring the prize pool to $361,660, knocking out the advertised guarantee of $150,000 guarantee. The super-fast pace and low starting chip stack (300) saw Finland´s “errr_rick” emerge as the winner of $79,565 among 135 players who cashed. One such player was “joaosimaobh,” who took down Event #2 and qualified for Event #7 via satellite, turning $55 into a 112th place finish good for $488.24.
