Event #12 of the FTOPS VII kicked off at 9:00pm ET on February 13th. This event featured a No Limit Hold ‘em 6-Max Rebuy tournament. Like all the other events in this FTOPS series, this tournament didn’t come short of any action with 1,361 players lining up to play. Full Tilt guaranteed a healthy prize pool of $1,000,000 which was yet again shattered by the number of entrants. At $300 a pop, and an additional $300 for every rebuy into the tournament, it was bound to happen. Due to the 2,148 rebuys and 782 add-ons players threw into the pot, the prize pool increased over a quarter of a million dollars to $1,287,300. Who wouldn’t want a piece of that prize money?

The final table began after the 9 hour mark in this 10+ hour long tournament.
It began as follows:

1. SirWatts: 1,670,200
2. DDBeast: 1,588,124
3. Ilikeaces86: 1,471,839
4. Bkice: 767,122
5. The__D__RY: 683,228
6. potroast: 646,987

As we all know, the dynamic changes as players reach the final table and it becomes an all out war for 1st place. Short stacked players are put under pressure to make their move in hopes of doubling up for a chance to be looked at as a contender and chip leaders are looking to keep that lead right through to the end of the final hand.

Let’s take a look at a hand that changed this dynamic and helped ilikeaces86 secure his 1st place win:

Congratulations to Flop Turn River member, ilikeaces86, for taking first in this relatively expensive tournament, winning him a sweet $257,460.00 prize! In response to the many congrats received from other FTR members, ilikeaces86’s first reply since the big win was, “Pimpin def ain’t easy. But on a more serious note thanks guys its about time.” ilikeaces went on to say that he’s gotten deep in huge money MTT’s so often lately, only to run terribly and that it’s about time that he runs decent late in a MTT. His win is a win that anyone would love to have on their resume, and again, congrats!

Full Tilt professional, Eric Lindgren, was the deepest playing pro in this tournament, landing him at 38th place with a $3,862 win. Placing in the money at 38th place is quite a nice follow-up to his 1st place win in the event he also hosted – Event 9 of the FTOPS VII. Along with Lindgren, Mike Matusow and Scott Clements placed 150th and 171st, respectively. Matusow and Clements both secured a $1,416.03 win.
