FTOPS Event #15 – $200+$16 NL Holdem 6-Max Turbo, $500k GTD
Full Tilt Red Pro Mike McDonald, the very same poker pro who claimed 12th place in FTOPS Event #13, played host in this 6-max NL Holdem turbo event. 2,801 players turned out for this massive guarantee of half a million, once more enough to increase the expected prize pool to $560,200. Full Tilt Red Pro Aaron Bartley proved why he is an exceptional poker pro by making his way through the final table up to a 3rd place finish worth $70,000. BartleyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s exit left Ã¢â‚¬Å“River_VladÃ¢â‚¬Â and Ã¢â‚¬Å“the snaffleÃ¢â‚¬Â to compete for the title.
Before Bartley took his leave, there was deal making between the three finalists. As it turns out, the 2nd place finisher, Ã¢â‚¬Å“River_VladÃ¢â‚¬Â, actually pocketed a higher prize than FTOPS Title winner Ã¢â‚¬Å“the snaffleÃ¢â‚¬Â. In fact, Ã¢â‚¬Å“the snaffleÃ¢â‚¬Â barely took home more than 3rd place finisher, Aaron Barlety. This explains the most interesting pay table shown below.
FTOPS Event #15 Final Table Results
1st – the snaffler ($73,539.19)
2nd – River_Vlad ($85,000.00)
3rd – Aaron Bartley ($70,000.00)
