Mini FTOPS XIV kicked off last week and has been rolling along nicely. This “mini” tournament series mirrors FTOPS but with much more manageable buy-ins for players with smaller bankrolls. The series will culminate this weekend with the $50+$5 $600k Guaranteed Main Event hosted by FullTilt owner Howard Lederer. In fact, all 25 events are “hosted” by FullTilt sponsored professionals including Cyndy Violette, Ross Boatman, Perry Friedman, Scott Fischman, and many others.

Through Thursday night 19 of the 25 events will have been completed, including Event #10, a $30+$3 NL Hold’em tournament which attracted 17,879 entrants this past Sunday. The $536,370 left $80,000+ for first place and eventual winner “ToM RoX 420”. Three other tournaments have already had 10,000 players or more including Events #1, #7, and #8. In Event #1 FullTilt sponsored professional Christian Kruel made the final table eventually busting in 4th place for just under $15,000. Another “red pro” nearly made a final table appearance in event #12, a NL 6-max tournament. Sascha Biorac bubbled the final six, busting in 7th place, good enough for $7,093 in prize money.

Overall the tournament series has been cruising along quite nicely. All of the tournaments appear to be filling enough seats to reach their guarantees, and there are satellites running around the clock allowing players to qualify for as little as $1. Once again, the series concludes this Sunday with the $55 Main Event. Below are results from a few select events:
