FTOP VIII Event 15 featured HA (half PL Hold’em, half PL Omaha), which pulled in a nice 932 players into the competition.  With a buy-in of $200+$16 and a guarantee of $150,000, the prize pool was sure to surpass the guarantee.  The prize pool busted the guarantee by about $36,400 more, making it a nice $186,400!  This FTOPS VIII event was hosted by German Full Tilt Pro, Eddy Scharf.  Scharf is a Lufthansa pilot and has the honor of carrying two WSOP bracelets in Limit Omaha.  Despite his obvious success, it wasn’t enough to land him in the money this time around.

It wasn’t only Eddy Scharf facing rough waters in this tournament though, as it turned out to be a rather unfriendly forum for all the professionals!  In fact, the only Full Tilt Professional to make it in the money was Stuart Paterson.  Paterson finished 62nd overall for a measly $447, doubling his initial investment.

Siggen, the event’s 1st place winner, scored a cool $42,872.  Siggen has enjoyed a lot of success in online poker.  Some of his recent scores are this event, $27,863 in the WCOOP-12 on PokerStars, and $6,084 in a $109 rebuy tournament on Stars.  Other notable online players include Alan Nissim (hamazriya, Jared Okun (Smokinokun) and Matt Smith (SamENole.)

The nine players who made it to the final table and their positions are as follows:

1st – Siggen – $42,872
