MiniFTOPS XVII Update: 13 Events Down, $2.5 Million Awarded So Far

MiniFTOPS

Although the World Championship of Online Poker is taking up almost all of the online poker scene’s attention, plenty of players are still getting in on some smaller action over at Full Tilt Poker where another installment of the MiniFTOPS is currently running. Although the WCOOP’s buy-ins are much larger, many of the same players are firing up the MiniFTOPS events for a fraction of the amounts knowing they can still win a nice chunk of change. What makes it even sweeter is that you can win big without investing too much money.

Through the first 13 events, 103,186 players have entered the events combined and over $2.5 million has been given away in prize money! That’s a pretty ridiculous number given that the any single buy-in hasn’t eclipsed $55 so far. Here are the results through those first 13 events.
