Have a Sweat
Want to get in on a piece of some FTOPS money but don't grind it out for 10+ hours? Well, you could always buy a piece of someone. Ask the lucky eight who bought a piece of "MagicGog," who finished second in FTOPS XVI event #7 that garnered him a payday of $141,791. He offered up 50 percent of his action but not all his shares were bought, so he and his backers shared a nice payday.
MagicGog still has a few tournaments left in his ChipMeUp combo, or you could always buy a piece of someone else. Check it all out here.
FTOPS XVI Results
The 16th FTOPS has begun, plenty of money has already been awarded, and gold jerseys have been handed out. Everything kicked off on Friday when 3,673 players took to the virtual felt in $200 + $16 no-limit hold'em event, hosted by Allen Cunningham. There was a $750,000 guarantee and "BRO20" took home $134,250 for the win.

Here for the Party
PartyPoker has added another member to its team. Formula 1 driver Jaime Alguersuari will be the newest face representing the brand. The 20-year-old is the youngest driver in F1 history and he'll be taking part in exclusive tournaments online where the winners will get a chance to meet Jaime and go to one of his races.
“Some say that I am a novice in F1 and I would say the same about poker. I have loved the game from afar but with all my driving commitments, I have a lot to learn. I recently got my first points in F1 and am now about to secure my first PartyPoints at PartyPoker.com,” Jaime said. “The popularity of poker in Spain is on the rise and I cannot wait to be part of it and improve my skills at the table by playing online. Poker is so popular among the F1 drivers at the moment, by becoming an ambassador for PartyPoker.com I aim to be the best of them all!"
You might not be able to take Jaime on on the course, but you can take him on at PartyPoker. Sign up here.
