FTOPS XXII Day 3: "Vampyboy" Tops Star-Studded Final Table in Event #8


The 22nd installment of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series continued Tuesday with three more tournaments from the 38-event schedule: Event #6 $216 PL Omaha Hi/Lo 6-Max ; Event #7 $322 Razz; and Event #8 $216 NL Hold'em Rush Turbo.

Each event eclipsed its guaranteed prize pool as more than $335,000 was awarded across the three tournaments. The biggest winner of the day was "Vampyboy," who defeated a tough final table in Event #8 to scoop a $41,400 top prize. "PimpDaddyDolla" (Event #6) and "motion713" (Event #8) also won FTOPS jerseys on Tuesday.

With eight events already in the books, Germany's "keinebeine" has a comfortable lead in the FTOPS XXII Leader Board. The German has 346 points, most of which came from winning Event #4 on Monday for $131,298. His closest competitor in the standings is Event #1 champ Tom "hitthehole" Middleton with 261 points. Also in the top 10 are Thayer "THAY3R" Rasmussen (7th - 207 points) and Brandon "norajean" Meyers (8th - 205 points). The leaderboard winner will receive a custom Full Tilt Poker avatar and an FTOPS XXIII event package worth $11,000.

Here's a look at the results from Tuesday's FTOPS events:

The first of two Omaha hi/lo events on the FTOPS XXII schedule saw 427 players put up the $216 buy-in, generating a prize pool worth $85,000. Brandon "norajean" Meyers (12th - $1,153) and Rayan "rkruok" Nathan (19th - $598) were among the notables who made deep runs but ultimately fell short of glory.

In the end, it was Germany's "Vampyboy" who claimed the title after defeating Maimone heads up for $41,400.
