FTOPS XXI Day 5 Results

Two more exciting tournaments were played Thursday in Day 5 of Full Tilt’s FTOPS XXI. Events #10 and #11 are in the books, leaving 10 more days and 24 tourneys left to play at the first FTOPS since PokerStars acquired the assets of Full Tilt in August.

The day kicked off with Event #10, a $200 + $16 Limit Hold’em, 6-Max, Rush Poker, Multi-Entry Tournament. This was only the second of the scheduled events thus far that failed to surpass the guarantee. Most events have done so by a huge margin. Its quite likely that a fixed-limit of betting was the reason behind the low turnout. A total of 273 players entered, with 90 of those entering twice, bringing the total number of buy-ins to 363, $2,400 short of the $75,000 guarantee.

After four and 1/2 hours, “bullyingpros” emerged as the champion and took $17,850 for first place. Runner-up went to “TheFatFISH” from Australia, whose solid play was more reminiscent of a shark than a recreational player. Fourth place finisher, “mrcall912,” was the champion of Event #6 on Tuesday. Following his final table appearance in Event #10, “mrcall912” is now on top of the FTOPS XXI Leaderboard.

The final table results of six-handed Event #10:

1 bullyingpros $17,850

2 TheFatFISH $11,400

3 saldory $ 8,325

4 mrcall912 $ 6,075

5 keeskontje $ 4,275

6 veeea $ 2,850


The day’s second and last tournament, Event #11, had a buy-in of $300 + $22 for a No-Limit Hold’em, 3xShootout, the only shootout on the FTOPS XXI schedule. The final two players left standing, Sebastian “p00cket00” Sikorski and Chris “Moorman1” Moorman enjoyed a friendly banter during heads-up play. Moorman was experiencing Internet difficulties, disconnecting and reconnecting a number of times. Moorman informed Sikorski that he was located in Prague, preparing for Monday’s €5300 buy-in Main Event of the European Poker Tour.

Sikorski outlasted Moorman, winning the final hand of the tournament with pocket deuces and pocketing $27,412. Moorman is $18,487 richer for his second place finish, as he gets set to transition to live play on Monday. Sikorski sits in sixth place on the FTOPS XXI Leaderboard.

Here are the final table results of Event #11:

1 p00cket00 $27,412

2 Moorman1 $18,487

3 PatGarrett01 $13,387
