Share this
Run it and they will come. The Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) began its 13th installment on August 5, and they came. Each of the first five events found itself with high registration numbers and guarantees that were left in the dust for bigger and better prize pools. There is no better testament to a top online poker series than attendance, and FTOPS XIII has once again proven its prowess in only the first five events.

Let’s take a look at the results of those five events:

Each event thus far has garnered a solid field of pros and amateurs, many of whom took their seats courtesy of satellites that allowed them to play the major events for a fraction of the buy-ins.
