Full Tilt Poker Series Pays Big
By Staff
Online casino FullTiltPoker.com announced that 5,291 players battled it out during the seventh instalment of its Online Poker Series last week.

The main event ended with a prize pool worth $2.64 million, well in excess of the guaranteed two million dollars, and saw 738 players finishing in the money along with six-figure payments for the top five survivors.

The event had a $535 buy-in and saw online player ‘Reverse’ start the final with a two to one chip count over his nearest rival. This advantage was too much to overcome and he prevailed in a heads-up battle with Thomas Wahlroos to take home a winner's cheque for $456,401.66 while second place collected $276,454.75.

Similar big money take-homes flowed from Event 17 in the Series, a no-limit hold 'em contest with a $2,620 buy-in running for two days. An entry field of 849 participants including top players such as Darrel Dicken, Gavin Smith, JJ Liu, Eric Froehlich and teenage whizz Michael ‘Timex’ McDonald generated a prize-pool of $2.12 million with the first player to fall collecting a cheque for over $36,000. Online contestants 'Csimmsux' and 'Abu-Bilal' fought it out for the top prize of $488,175 but it was the former who prevailed, leaving second place with a prize of $307,762.50.
