The Sunday Briefing: Kirbynator Wins FTOPS XVI Main Event

The Sunday Briefing: Kirbynator Wins FTOPS XVI Main Event 0001

FTOPS XVI came to an end early Monday morning after nearly 20 hours of no-limit hold'em action. Four new gold-jersey winners emerged, but no one claimed a bigger prize than urbandb888, who outlasted a final table that featured Benny "psychobenny" Spindler and David "Bussa Buss" Baker. The outright win in Event #25 added $450,000 to urbandb888's bankroll.

Meanwhile, the Main Event came to an end just before 9 a.m. on the East Coast. Five players emerged with $200k+ paydays after a deal was reached. Kirbynator was the last player standing, taking down the tournament for $327,057.40.
