Full Tilt Poker Crowns First Victor In FTOPS XI

The Full Tilt Online Poker Series has returned to Full Tilt Poker, now in its 11th installment – FTOPS XI. Event #1, $200+$16 NLH got underway last night, February 4th, at 9pm ET, and just moments ago crowned the first victor of FTOPS XI – “muckducks”.

6,275 participants took the tables Wednesday evening to battle it out for their share of the $1,000,000 Guarantee, enough to boost the prize pool to $1,255,000 as the action got underway.

The massive field dwindled, slowly but surely, as 6,000+ fell to a final table of 9. One-by-one, the final participants were sent to the rails to watch anxiously as, at last, it came down to two, highly skilled, and likely exhausted, competitors.

By 9:45 am ET, heads-up challengers “muckducks” and “sticky seat” had seen the chips filtered back and forth quite a few times. Eventually, the final hand came.

“Muckducks” held a 2-to-1 chip lead over “sticky seat”, with about 20m to 10m. “Sticky seat” found himself holding As-Kc, an exceptional starting hand that lead him to an All-In push. Looking down at J-T suited, “muckducks” made the call.

As the board came down, “sticky seat” looked like the sure winner, grabbing a Pair of Queens, lead by his Ace high, to take the lead. But the River completed a Queen high Straight for “muckducks” that put an end to a long, weary night of poker.

The 1st place prize of $216,512.60, along with the honorable FTOPS bracelet, goes to “muckducks”. For his exemplary effort, “sticky seat” walked away with a 2nd place cash of $131,147.50.
