Super Poker Sunday
Share this

The Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) started on Sunday, August 4th, at Full Tilt Poker and will keep players tuned in and in action until the 18th with 39 events and $8 million in guaranteed prize pools. The finale of the series is the $635 buy-in Main Event on August 18th. Along with the massive main event, get ready to play the new games — 5-Card Omaha, Courchevel, and 6-Card Omaha as they debut in FTOPS for the first time ever.

Chris "kid_bramm" Brammer, British poker superstar, opened the festival by winning Event #1, a $215 buy-in No Limit Hold'em tournament that brought a field of 3,503 runners to the virtual felt. Brammer won almost $130,000 in the first FTOPS win of his career. Ana "Nyx86" Marquez took down sixth place in that same tournament for $18,565.

Andrey "ThePateychuk" Pateychuk, Dan "Danny98765" Smith, and Matthias "goodvibe1" Neu scored Sunday Majors with Neu taking down the PokerStars Sunday Million for $205,751 to become the biggest winner of the week; Elio "smokrokflock" Fox finished third in that event.
