Full Tilt Fever: FTOPS X in the Books, Julian Verse Takes Main Event

Share this
For nearly two weeks, all the talk in the online poker world has been the Full Tilt Online Poker Series. In its tenth installment, FTOPS guaranteed over $15 million in prize money and finished with a total of $17,457,500, a stellar growth from its first series in 2006 with a combined prize pool of little more than $1 million. FTOPS X is now also in the record books with a new set of winners and impressive overall numbers.

As has been the case throughout the two-year history of FTOPS, the tenth series broke Full Tilt’s own records by attracting 47,699 players to the virtual tables for a combined prize pool of $17,457,500. The main event alone drew 5,225 players and was able to award the winner, Julian Verse, more than $450K in prize money. And in a time of worldwide economic uncertainty and numerous live and online competitors vying for poker tournament dollars, this feat becomes an even more remarkable one.

FTOPS X boasted of 25 tournaments, ranging from a $120 + $9 buy-in for the NLHE Knockout event to a $5000 + $200 buy-in for the high-stakes No-Limit Hold’em six-max tournament. There were games for everyone’s liking - Omaha, stud, razz, HORSE, and heads-up NLHE, and each one was hosted by a different Full Tilt Poker professional player. And it all took place over the course of twelve days.

Winners of each tournament received significant prize money for their initial investments, in addition to a limited-edition FTOPS jacket, gold FTOPS jersey, and gold jersey avatar for use on Full Tilt Poker. The list of winners is as follows:

With another FTOPS just completed, the next installment has yet to be announced. But when it is, it would be wise to be ready for it! Many of those who played in FTOPS X did so for very little money via the countless satellites and qualifiers. It might be time to brush up on those poker skills now, via Full Tilt Poker. Practice could turn into hundreds of thousands of dollars in no time; ask any of the 25 winners listed above!

By the way, by using the bonus code “POKERWORKS” upon making the first deposit, a 100% bonus can be applied to any dollar amount up to $600.
