FTOPS XIX: Events 1-16 In The Books

FTOPS XIX

Saturday marks the busiest day on the FTOPS docket as five events will kick off. It's been an excellent start to the series thus far as each event has eclipsed its guarantee and as a result, massive paydays have been won by some of online poker's most recognized names. While the biggest winner thus far's identity is unknown ("dutchmaster" - $290,942.56), several other notables have taken home six-figure pay days. Among them are Jonas “Klausen” Klausen, Michael Tureniec, Joseph "JBlaze20" Chaplin, Kory "s00tedj0kers89" Kilpatrick, Alex "TheAssassinato" Fitzgerald, Mike "GoLeafsGoEh" Leah, Sam "miserd00d" Stein, and John "JohnnyGstaks" Hayes. Klausen and Stein won their events for $182,650.60 and $182,447.83, respectively.

Others that have notched FTOPS gold jerseys include Nicholas "Grippolio" Grippo, Vincent "Soepgroente" van der Fluit, Joe “daPHUNNIEman” Kuether, and Mike "SirWatts" Watson.
