After one of the hardest fought battles we’ve seen during the current FTOPS running, Private ATM has emerged from the Six-Max Rebuy ordeal that was Event 22.
Altogether, 928 players stepped up to the felt, each paying a sizable $300 + $22 entry fee. Seating began at 21:00 ET on November 17 with rebuys and 2,000 chip add-ons available, each costing an additional $300.
Despite an impressive 1,535 rebuys and 704 add-ons, Event 22 fell a bit short of its $1,000,000 guarantee. In total, players ponied up $950,100 in their own cash prior to the cutoff once the blinds reached Level Four.
After just over ten hours of play, Private ATM emerged with the prestigious FTOPS win at 7:25 ET – just in time for a hearty breakfast.
Here’s how the final table finished out:
#1 – Private ATM ($213,500)
#2 – newhizzle ($140,000)
#3 – Caio Pimenta ($100,000)
#4 – govshark2 ($76,000)
#5 – HosniMubarak ($54,000)
#6 – Bttech86 ($34,500)
All told, the top 102 players earned a return on their investment, with a minimum payout set at $1,900. Five Full Tilt pros made the money, led by Caio Pimenta’s third place finish worth $100,000. Next up was John Racener in 13th ($8,600), followed by Brandon Adams (75th – $2,100) and John Dolan (84th – $2,100). John Phan’s 99th place elimination was worth $1,900, with another pro, Pass Lefrancois, knocked out in 108th, just before the bubble burst.
Other notable participants included David Pham (172nd), Leo Bello (210th), Berry Johnston (226th), Felipe Mojave (238th), Annette_15 (255th), Vitaly Lunkin (272nd), and James Dempsey (353rd).
Host Scott Montgomery wound up his day in 730th, well out of the pay scale.
