Posted 3/22/11 : MiniFTOPS 19 draws a large entry field
The nineteenth edition of Full Tilt Poker's miniFTOPS competition ended over the weekend, and goes into the books as another popular event, drawing in a field of 45 232 with a buy-in of $75, which generated a prize pool of $3 166 240 – well in excess of the guaranteed $1.25 million.
Six-figure paydays extended all the way down to the fifth position on the final table of nine, with winner KOMIJENDO taking home $396 578.78 after a two way chop with heads up opponent Igor ‘Demon1531' Panak, who collected a second placing check for $360 944.14.
In related news, there were also big money winners on Full Tilt's million dollar Sunday Guaranteed tourney, where NuggetMaster420 prevailed and enjoyed a $221 241.60 payday; and across at Pokerstars, where player "kalmuka" won the Sunday Million for $234,574.03, after a six-handed deal had been negotiated by final table players.
