Weekend Online Poker Action Continues To Impress
FTOPS III closes in style with $4.4 million in
Enhancing the weekend online tournament action this week,
the ten day, 10 event
Full Tilt Online Poker Series III steamed past its
guaranteed $3.4 million in total prize money by a
comfortable extra million following strong popular support
for all events, and never fell below the guarantee level,
with event 7 actually overtaking the guaranteed mark by a
factor of four.
Crowning another highly successful series thoroughly
enjoyed by players was the $1.5 million guaranteed no limit
Texas Hold Em main event, which attracted 3 217 entrants.
These gamblers paid $500 + $35 each to get a crack at the
prizepool of $1 608 500, which made the winner a happy
player and ensured that 459 other pokerheads were in the
money bubble. The top 15 players all achieved five figure
payouts in one of the best series yet.
The winner was ultimately player 'traheho' who picked up
the winner's check of $288 001.93 after an intense
five hand final heads up confrontation with runner up
'Boosted J' The latter's second place check of $175
326.50 no doubt eased the pain of losing.
