Record Setting FTOPS Comes to a Close

It was the largest FTOPS event ever held with more the 14,000 runners putting up at least one buy-in to secure one of the online poker world’s most coveted titles. Full Tilt’s new multi entry system meant that nearly all of the online world’s pros were out to gain as much equity in the tournament as possible by registering the full 6 times. The wave of multiple entries eventually created a prizepool of $8 million, well over the $3 million guarantee.

Predictably the pace in the early offing was frantic but with so many players to whittle down the tournament went long into the night until the final table was reached after more than 15 hours of play. Going into the final it was Blair “blur5f6” Hinkle who held the chip lead. The 2008 WSOP bracelet winner never strayed far from the lead as one by one the players around him fell away. Once the field had dropped to three players a deal was discussed, a deal which secured Hinkle $1,162,950. With their prizes already set and $65,000 left to play for the pace shifted and Hinkle soon relinquished his chiplead and finished second to his opponent “GIAMPP.”

The final signalled the end of another successful FTOPS for Full Tilt and proved once again that the online poker room is one of the best in the business when it comes to offering high quality tournaments to its players. Final Results:
