FTOPS X Event #6: $500+35 Pot-Limit Omaha 6-max

FTOPS X Event #6, $500+35 Pot-Limit Omaha 6-max, drew 642 participants, though it fell just a bit short of its $350,000 guaranteed prize pool. Among the players who ran deep but missed the final table were Tristan "Cre8ive" Wade in seventh ($7,700), Brian Hastings in eighth ($7,700), PeachyMer in 12th ($4,200), mossified84 in 18th ($2,555), and Full Tilt "red pros" Aaron Bartley in 24th ($2,065) and Berry Johnston in 26th ($1,680).

Chip counts to start the final table were as follows:

Brent "Broberts85" Roberts - 890,671

d3fault - 865-922

pu-sdaeh - 729,560

BubonicPlague - 549,799

thecranium - 494,832

xquadfourskinx - 321,216

The first to go was pu-sdaeh at 15,000/30,000 blinds. From the button, pu-sdaeh made it 82,500 to go and was raised by Brent "Broberts85" Roberts in the small blind to 277,500. Pu-sdaeh called and the flop came {6-Spades}{9-Hearts}{q-Spades}. Roberts bet enough to set his opponent all in with {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} and pu-sdaeh called with {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}. The turn and river came {6-Clubs} and {5-Spades} as Roberts' kings held on to win, eliminating pu-sdaeh in sixth for $12,250. BubonicPlague was unable to inflict any more damage after a hand against thecranium. From the small blind, BubonicPlague raised to 78,000 and thecranium raised to 234,000 from the big blind. BubonicPlague called and when the flop rolled out {9-Spades}{10-Hearts}{6-Clubs}, bet 468,000 and set thecranium all in. After briefly thinking it over thecranium called and showed {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}, slightly leading against BubonicPlague's {q-Clubs}{q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}. The turn and river were blanks, coming out {2-Hearts} and {a-Diamonds}. BubonicPlague was very short-stacked and was out a few hands later in fifth for $19,250.

Out next was d3fault after getting it all in preflop with {a-Spades}{k-Hearts}{j-Spades}{7-Hearts} against Brent Roberts' {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{3-Hearts}. The board came {2-Hearts}{2-Spades}{8-Spades}{6-Spades}{2-Clubs} and d3fault took home $26,950 for fourth. Xquadfourskinx, holding {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}{10-Hearts}{9-Spades}, was busted the next hand, again by Brent Roberts, who held {a-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{3-Spades}. The board came {a-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{j-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} as Roberts' wheel took it down and eliminated xquadfourskinx in third for $35,455.

The heads-up battle was quick as Brent Roberts claimed the win. After limping from the button and facing a raise to 120,000 by thecranium, Roberts called and the flop came {q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}. Thecranium led out for 120,000 and Roberts bumped it up to 480,000, which was met by an all-in raise to 1,134,295 by thecranium with {a-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}. Brent Roberts called and turned up {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} for the middle pair and flush draw. However, the {10-Hearts} hit the turn and sealed the deal. The river was the meaningless {2-Diamonds} as thecranium finished runner-up for $49,350. Brent "Broberts85" Roberts won Event #6 and $75,250.

1. Brent "Broberts85" Roberts - $75,250

FTOPS X Event #7: $100+9 NLHE (w/ Rebuys)

FTOPS Event #7, a $100+9 (with rebuys) no-limit tournament, saw 1,893 entrants register. There were 2,658 rebuys and 1,083 add-ons, but the event still fell just short of its $600,000 guarantee. Notable non-final-table finishers included STELLA05 in 12th ($4,800), Shawn "phat_cat1" Luman in 25th ($1,920), Mark "dipthrong" Herm in 31st ($1,620), Matt "NoBadBeatsPlz" Kay in 56th ($1,110), Ben "1Mastermind" Chen in 59th ($1,110) and Luis Velador in 66th ($1,020).

Eliminated in ninth place was ICGOODTHINGS. With blinds and antes 25,000/50,000 and 6,000, ICGOODTHINGS moved all in from early position for 414,255 with {2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} and found action from the aviator1 on the button with {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}. The {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop kept things a virtual coin flip. The {2-Hearts} fell on the turn, giving a set to ICGOODTHINGS but the nut flush to the aviator1. The board did not pair with the {k-Clubs} river card, sending ICGOODTHINGS home with $7,200. At the 30,000/60,000/7,500 level, Stephen "Stinky Budz" O'Connor ran {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs} into Tim"cane3418" Seidensticker's {a-Hearts}{a-Spades} and lost virtually all of his stack. He was eliminated a few hands later in eighth for $10,200.

Busting next was the aviator1. At 40,000/80,000/10,000, the aviator1 got it all in for 660,164 with {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} against Kenny "Hixx" Hicks' {a-Spades}{8-Hearts}. However, the board came with an eight and it was enough to ground aviator1 in seventh for $15,000. A few hands later, FromThaGroundUp was all in with a short stack holding (Jd7h against seidensticker's {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}. The board brought no help to FromThaGroundUp, who finished sixth for $24,600. Kenny Hicks fell on the next hand to Seidensticker as Hicks' {k-Clubs}{9-Spades} in the small blind ran into Seidensticker's {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}. The board ran out {6-Hearts}{8-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{q-Hearts} and Hicks was out in fifth for $35,400. Van voot hit the rail next after shoving from the small blind with {k-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} for 613,527 and getting called by Tomsk400 in the big blind with {q-Clubs}{7-Spades}. The board dished out {5-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{a-Clubs}{7-Clubs} as the river crushed van voot, who finished fourth for $47,400. 4XTRADER succumbed in third place at the 50,000/100,000/10,000 level after moving all in for 1,480,786 with {k-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and getting a call from Tomsk400 in the big blind with {a-Hearts}{5-Hearts}. The board brought an ace, felting 4XTRADER for $60,600.

Chip counts to start heads-up play were as follows:

Tim "cane3418" Seidensticker - 4,648,964

Tomsk400 - 4,343,536

It came to an end at 80,000/160,000/20,000. Tim"cane3418" Seidensticker notched the victory. He raised to 320,000 preflop and Tomsk400 called, bringing out a {10-Spades}{2-Spades}{a-Clubs} flop. Tomsk400 check-called a bet of 480,000, which brought the {q-Spades} turn. Action checked to Seidensticker who fired 1,280,000, but was then faced with an all-in raise to 3,608,740 by Tomsk400. Tim "cane3418" Seidensticker went into the tank. After a little while he finally called and showed {k-Spades}{8-Hearts} for flush and straight draws against Tomsk400's {7-Spades}{6-Spades} for the made flush. The {j-Spades} river made a higher flush for Seidensticker, eliminating Tomsk400 as runner-up for $81,600, giving the win and $123,600 to Tim "cane3418" Seidensticker.

Final Results:
