Super Poker Sunday: Sunday Million and FTOPS Main Event Chopped by Espen Sørlie

Super Poker Sunday
Share this

The Full Tilt Online Poker Series finished the 26th edition with a massive BANG when the $640 Main Event came to a close on Sunday. The biggest names in online poker were on the scene and battling it out for a piece of the series' flagship tournament that featured a $1 million guaranteed prize pool.

"ponyo88" made it through a 1,500-player field and took home the gold jersey and the $153,962 first-place prize. But Espen "Sh4wshank" Sørlie stole the spotlight when he made the final table of the FTOPS Main Event and the PokerStars Sunday Million, chopping both for more than $311,000.

The Sunday Million found Sørlie claiming $168,270 when he finished runner-up to Finald's "€urop€an." Then a three-way chop took place in the FTOPS Main Event and and Sørlie finished second in that too for $143,556.

Sørlie was happy!

Other Sunday Majors winners were Phil "MrSweets28" Galfond, Tom "hitthehole" Middleton and the UK's "LAP1293" who won the PokerStars Sunday 500 — making it his second win in the event in five months.

Mark "dipthrong" Herm finsihed off the 31-event FTOPS series at the top of the Leaderboard with 1,013 points. Herm is now in a spot to make a run for a life-changing opportunity with a contract for a four-month Black Card Pro sponsorship — it starts on Monday, September 1st.
