Online Poker Site Review » Tournaments » FTOPS XIX Main Event Recap


FTOPS XIX wrapped up this weekend, with the $600 + $40 NL Holdem main event. I believe FTOPS is the best tournament series of all the online poker sites. This tournament was run with FTPs new Multi-Entry format, basically allowing players to enter multiple times. The event had just under 15k entries at 14,479. The prize pool was an astounding $8,687,400, almost triple the guarantee!

The FTOPS XIX was hosted by Full Tilt Poker pro Erick Lindgren, whos highest finished was 2,377 and not in the money. Erick Lindgren had five entries and did poorly with all of them. The top 1890 where payed a minimum of $868.74. the top three finisher chopped the prize for a $1,162,949.74 payday for player blur5f6. The reported winner of the tournament, GIAMPP cashed a $877,949.74. and player SirMad rounded out the top three with a prize of $805,440.26.

Only one Full Tilt Poker pro finished in the top 100, TheWacoKid took 93rd for $6,602.43. Three out of four of TheWacoKid’s entries finished in the money 93rd, 1357th, 1733rd and 3222. Ryan Daut took 172nd place for a $5,038.69 payday. Ryan Daut had six toal entries and two made the money as he also captured 1242. 2010 WSOP finalist and Full Tilt Poker Pro Soi Nguyen took home $3,909.33 for finishing in 251st place. His other three entries left the tournamnt fast. 376th went to FTP pro player Nordberg who was paid $2,345.60 for the effort, a losing day as he had six entries. Several other FTP pros finished in the money.

Phil Ivey had a tough day with his four entries into the tournamnt. Phil Iveys highest finish was 4603rd place. The other three where 8954, 5695 and 5513. Allen Cunningham had six entries, five of which couldn’t break out of to the top half of the field, his best finished 3,745. Huckleberryseed, Ben Roberts, Brian Hasings, David Chiu and Caio Pimenta all had six entries and failed to cash with any of them.

This was the last tournament for FTOPS XIX. It is gone, and now we must wait a couple months for FTOPS XX.
