Sunday Briefing

Full Tilt Poker's FTOPS XX concluded early Monday morning with its Main Event. Unfortunately, the numbers were just a third of what its predecessor FTOPS drew. Still, huge prizes were at stake. The winner was Ariel "ArielBahia" Celestino, taking it down for $346,696.49. Also capturing FTOPS gold jerseys on Sunday were "LFmagic" and Phil "FLIPokerHer" D'Auteuil. Over on PokerStars, the Sunday Million was won by "Vsegris" for $178,066.70.
