The Midweek Briefing: Sebastian "sebbau" Bauer Takes Top FTOPS Prize of the Week 0001

With Full Tilt Poker's FTOPS XVIII in full swing, the online tournament scene has produced several huge wins this week. Over the last few days, the biggest individual prize went to Sebastian "sebbau" Bauer for winning Event #16, a $1,000 NL Hold'em 6-Max, for $274,234.50. Not far behind is Jason "Private ATM" Helder who won Event #22, a $300 NL Hold'em 6-Max with Rebuys, for $213,500. 2010 November Niner Soi Nguyen also captured an FTOPS event this week. Amazingly, it was the one he hosted. Nguyen took down Event #18, a Rush NL Hold’em Super Turbo, for $78,503.92.
