Full Tilt Fever: FTOPS XV Ends with Jack QKA as Main Event Champion

Share this
In only 12 days and what felt like a blink of an eye, the 15th installment of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) is complete. And amazing numbers were recorded. In 27 tournaments, the cumulative prize pool for FTOPS XV came to $18,609,100, which was awarded to thousands of players in addition to the 27 winners. That is an impressive dollar figure.

With those 27 coveted online poker titles forever on players’ records as FTOPS victories, each winner also received a limited-edition FTOPS jacket, gold FTOPS jersey, and gold jersey avatar for future use on Full Tilt Poker. In fact, all final table players took home that jacket as a reminder of their stellar FTOPS performance.

And when all was said and done, one player took home a special prize for finishing the series with such results that he secured a spot at the top of the FTOPS XV leaderboard. UnoffensiveNick ended the series with 410 points, which garnered that player a custom Full Tilt Poker avatar along with a prize package worth $8,500 that includes entries into nearly every one of the upcoming spring FTOPS XVI events.

Those total statistics are impressive, but the series itself ended with seven tournaments that had some interesting results. Most significant was the Main Event, which found the final tables deciding on a seven-way chop for the prize money before JackQKA went on to eliminate all other opponents and claim the Main Event title, along with $237,643.69 in first place prize money.
