FTOPS XXI Day 9 Results

Two of three winners from Monday's FTOPS XXI tournaments are Americans who relocated abroad following Black Friday's fallout in order to continue excelling in their chosen profession.

Event #19 was set at a $240 + $16 buy-in for Pot-Limit Omaha Hi/Lo Knockout. Entrants for the tourney numbered 460, knocking out the $75,000 guaranteed prize pool in favor of $92,000 in prize money. Forty-five players cashed with Bill "Bill Gazes" Gazes outlasting the field to win $19,157 following a deal with second placer "BredaBreda," who took home $18,102. Though Gazes may lack creativity in screen name selection, his poker skills in Event #19 were not lacking at all.

Event #19 final nine:

1 Bill Gazes $19,157

2 BredaBreda $18,102

3 DoktorGre $10,580

4 Giffordonian $ 8,280

No-Limit Hold'em, 6-Max, Double Chance at a buy-in of $1,000 + $60 attracted 387 players for a prize pool of $387,000 in Event #20. After almost ten hours of play, U.S. refugee Taylor “ambigousity” Paur claimed a gold jersey and $73,559 after a three-way deal with “Ramux” and “IITTII," who finished second and third, respectively. FTOPS organisers set the guarantee at $200,000, perhaps not counting on so many Americans to pack up and leave their homeland in order to compete online in tourneys such as Event #20 at FTOPS XXI.

The six-handed final table results of Event #20:

1 ambigousity $73,559

2 Ramux $64,510

3 IITTII $55,817

4 vvirtue $31,347

5 T3G3S $22,059

6 blony_tair $14,706

 

No-Limit Hold'em Turbo at an entry fee of $200 + $16 was slated for Event #21. A prize pool of $165,400 went to the top 90 players after 827 participants more than tripled the $50,000 guarantee. Relocated Americans failed to achieve a hat trick on the day as UK's Jareth “ateraaj2001” East nailed a payday of $28,564. East made a final table heads-up deal with "Tiltn_Mafks," who walked away with about $65 less after three hours of tournament action.
