Full Tilt Poker hosted 3 FTOPS IX (Full Tilt Online Poker Series) events yesterday, rather than the originally scheduled Events #18 and #19. Due to a multiple hour laps of Ã¢â‚¬ËœVoidedÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ tournaments earlier in the week, Event #13 was postponed until yesterday. Boosted prize pools included, Full Tilt Poker paid out more than $830k in FTOPS IX prize money.
Among the FTOPS IX events winners, Ã¢â‚¬Ëœjobless23Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ had the biggest day, taking down Event #18 for nearly $70,000. Event #19 went to Ã¢â‚¬ËœRizz13Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ for $63k, while the first prize in un-regularly scheduled Event #13, $45k, was awarded to Ã¢â‚¬ËœDukatosÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.
FTOPS IX Event #13 – $216 PL H.A., $200k GTD
Hosted by Max Pescatori, FTOPS IX Event #13 got underway at 3:30pm as 913 players joined in the action. Switching from PL HoldÃ¢â‚¬â„¢em to PL Omaha at each blind increase, the tables slowly shrunk until the final nine remained. It took less than 7 hours to finalize heads-up play as Ã¢â‚¬ËœDukatosÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and Ã¢â‚¬ËœAllin4NarniaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ duked it out for the top prize. Ã¢â‚¬ËœDukatosÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ finally prevailed, claiming $45,000 for the 1st place victory. The 2nd place prize of $28,500 went to Ã¢â‚¬ËœAllin4NarniaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.

In the final FTOPS IX event of the evening, hosted by the unsullied poker skills of Full Tilt Pro Erick Lindgren, a respectable field of 1,019 took to the tables; just enough to boost the $300k GTD by an extra $5,700. The longest event of the day, it took little more than 9 hours to reveal a winner as Ã¢â‚¬ËœRizz13Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ routed his heads-up opponent, Ã¢â‚¬ËœcastellimichÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, to take the 1st place purse of $63,738.
A notable 4th place finish went to Team Full TiltÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s David Chui, 4 time WSOP Bracelet winner. In 2008, Chui came back to defeat Full Tilt Pro Gus Hansen for the 2008 WTP World Championship title, worth $3.4 million.
