Here are the results for the Full Tilt Poker FTOPS XII Event#13: NL Hold’em Knockout with Superstack. Basically, you will get a $20 bounty for every player you knock out of the tournament. It is also a superstack event, which means that there is a ton of play here.

Tonight’s event was hosted by Russian Poker Pro Svetlana Gromenkova. She is one of the lesser known Full Tilt Reds, but that does not mean she is a bum, since she is one of the few women to hold a bracelet, having won one in the World Series of Poker champion in the 2008 $1,000 Ladies – No-Limit Hold’em. She also has a ton more ITM finishes to her name.

Of course, the Full Tilt pros were properly represented in this tournament as well. Among others, Esther Rossi, Fabrice Soulier, Isaac Baron, Leandro Brasa,  and Start Paterson all had very strong finishes tonight.

$1,000,000 Guaranteed, and about 8,280 players registered which means that there was quite a bit of overlay. First prize paid over $150K!! Definitely not bad for a buy-in of $120!

Here are the stacks at the start of FTOPS XII Event #24’s final table @ 40000/80000 Ante 10K:

Seat 1: Jedi AllStar (4,531,007)
Seat 2: vedder1980 (9,434,541)
Seat 3: GinsasH (3,213,775)

Spend it wisely kids!
