Besting 6,581 of his fellows, “A Caveman Can” defied the odds to capture the crown in Friday’s Event 37 of the 19th running of FTOPS.

Full Tilt seems to have struck a winning formula with their Multi-Entry Tournament. Such was the case here, when a field of 6,581 sold off at the price of $200 + $16. Initially featuring a guarantee of only $500k, the total prize pool actually eclipsed the million mark before settling at $1,316,200.

The game of choice was no limit Texas Hold’em, with super stack chips and six-max tables. One of the most interesting occurrences of the entire event took place at the final table. With four players remaining, a massive deal was struck, splitting the prize pool into four distinct shares.

Here’s how the final table shook out, including the effects of the far-reaching deal.

#1 – A Caveman Can ($118,850.35)
#2 – bladik ($168,818.83)
#3 – kinglega ($158,580.72)
#4 – AJKHoosier1 ($145,013.46)
#5 – tom44411 ($57,912.80)
#6 – RymesWOrange ($39,486)

Out of its nearly 6,600 entrant, the top 492 received a return on their money. The minimum payout, set at $460.67, was awarded to all the way up to place 433.

It was a good event for the pro’s, with several finishing inside the pay line. Foremost among these was Toto Leonidas, whose 10th place berth earned a sizable sum of $16,715.44. Next in line was Joseph Cheong, wrapping his day in 13th for $9,279.21. Other notables on the day included Martin Kabrhel (55th, $1,961.14) Dag Mikkelsen (57th, 1,961.14), Yongsuk Chang (110th, $1,171.42), Ali Sarkeshik (231st, $723.91), Allen Cunningham (445th, $460.67), and Roberto Santiago (461st, $460.67).

Falling just outside the bubble was Bruno Stefanelli, who bowed out in 502nd place.
