The eleventh edition of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series continued to attract large crowds of players this week, with Event 10, a $300+22 no-limit hold 'em tournament guaranteeing $1,5 million in prizes, pulling ‘em in.
The event was supported by 5 325 entries, generating a prize pool that exceeded the guarantee by $97 500 – the biggest thus far in an exciting series of tournaments.
Surviving the field, and a hectic final table was Steve "gboro780" Gross, who took home $275 600 and change for his time and effort. The six figure payments stretched to the top three finishers, with Gross’s heads up opponent BUSTYOU79 collecting a check for $166,938.75 and third placed Shoomie a useful payout of $107 352.
Gross entered heads up play with a more than $7 million advantage in chips, ensuring a brief two hands of heads up play before the match was decided.
