FTOPS XIX: Chris "MrDoggy" Klodnicki Among Latest Group of FTOPS Winners

Chris Klodnicki

The sun will soon set on Full Tilt Poker's FTOPS XIX as the schedule nears its conclusion. The series will be capped off Sunday with a $600 + $40 no-limit hold’em multi-entry tournament that is all but guaranteed to create the largest prize pool in FTOPS history. Before we look too far ahead, though, the tournaments this week have awarded several very deserving players. Chris "MrDoggy" Klodnicki was chief among them, earning his first gold jersey on Wednesday. The biggest individual prize since Monday belongs to Mike "CuteIsWhatIAim4" Telker, winning Event #27 for $408,068.23. Others that have notched FTOPS gold jerseys include Michael "Scary_Tiger" Kaufman, Kurt "HAIKU123" Haindl, and Daniel "shortsharpshock" DiPasquale.
