Nearly 1600 players registered for FTOPS XV – Event 18 $200 No Limit Hold ‘Em Cashout. The Cashout Tournaments present runners with a unique structure. One half of the prizepool is set aside for players to cashout up to the final table, and the other half is distributed normally. Once players reach the final table they “cashout” half the remaining prizepool based on their chip stacks.

Aaron “GambleAB” Bartley, a seasoned tournament veteran, hosted FTOPS XV – Event 18. Only Lee Watkinson represented Team Full Tilt by finishing in the money.
