Event #1 of Full Tilt Poker's MiniFTOPS XXI smashed the $300,000 guarantee on Sunday, January 6th, with a prize pool of $474,780. The $22 buy-in No Limit Hold'em tournament sent "thejuice514," home with a title after besting a field of 23,739 to collect the first place prize of $62,341.
MiniFTOPS features the same 35 events as the FTOPS XXI series, but the buy-ins for each event are one-tenth of the buy-in for the FTOPS. The series will have cards in the air through January 20th and explodes in a grand finish with the $75 buy-in multi-entry Main Event that has a massive $750,000 guarantee.
The first four MiniFTOPS played through Monday each registered prize pools well over the guarantee. The results:
Event #1: No Limit Hold'em ($300K Guaranteed)
Event #2: Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo ($20K Guaranteed)
Event #3: No Limit Hold'em Multi-Entry ($150K Guaranteed)
