j__thaddeus Takes Down FTOPS XII Event#13 — Double stacked 6-MAX NLHE Shoot Out

Another great FTOPS event is in the books, and we have another big-money winner. Today was a particularly special one, because it was a double stacked 6-max shootout event; essentially a deepstacked sit-n-go, 6-max, with the winner advancing to the next 6-max sit-n-go, and so on. So basically, to win this thing, you would need to be the literal last man standing out of a number of separate sit-n-go matches.

Tonight’s event was hosted by Markus Golser. Markus is a seasoned vet of the poker world, but he is not very well known around the west. He is, however, almost a deity in his native Austria with celeb status. He is a mean PLO specialist, but he is also very good at NLHE.

All the big names of Full Tilt Poker made their presence felt, including among many, Christian Kruel, Erich Kollmann, David “The Dragon” Pham, Barney Boatman, Lee Watkinson, Ram Vaswani and Trond Eidsvig.

The toughest 6 who made it to today’s final table were:
Seat 1: j__thaddeus (450,000)
Seat 2: Igli60 (453,000)
Seat 3: I Pay Ur Rent (459,000)
Seat 4: ScottyStarburst (456,000)
Seat 5: Ansky451 (459,000)
Seat 6: jason1984a (456,000)

Ansky451 went out in 6th in a hurry. Technical difficulties prevent me from posting the actual hand history, just know that it was a squeeze gone awry. Ansky451 takes home $7,200 for his efforts tonight, also breaking the 5-figure bubble. Congrats!
