With FTOPS XII coming to an end this Sunday there was quite a buzz around FullTilt Poker.  For once it seemed PokerStars would not have the biggest Sunday online.  FlopTurnRiver is covering all of the major FTOPS events including the Main Event which ended tonight.  This report will cover all of the other major online tournaments this Sunday so be sure to check out our news section to review the FTOPS tournaments.

Getting the day started was the $750,000 guaranteed Sunday Warm-Up.  Last week was the first time in a while the tournament failed to reach its guarantee.  This week what may have seemed like a fluke due to Mother’s Day became more of a worry as 3,702 entrants proved 48 too few to match the guarantee.

Heads-Up play came down to “pearldam” and “28h@ndsl@ter”, two players who until yesterday had not achieved much on PokerStars.  Once heads-up play started they were each guaranteed at least $87,750, an amount well over the biggest scores in the past.  28h@ndsl@ter was able to outlast pearldam and take home the title and over $117,000 in first place money.

The Sunday 500 typically provides a great final table each Sunday.  This week there were certainly more unknowns than regulars making a push for the $91,000+ first place prize.   “bdybldngpkr” took on “shane261966” and it was turned out to be quite a battle for the win.  In the end bdybldngpkr was able to take down the title.  This was his biggest score on Stars since winning the Sunday Second Chance for nearly $49,000 last December.  He now has over $500,000 in tournament cashes on PokerStars alone.  Runner-Up shane261966 took down the Warm-Up last month for over $100,000.

The Sunday $200 re-buy saw the best final table of the weekend, including the return of one of the most infamous tournament superstars of the past few years, “lilholdem954”.  Chad Batista is well-known for an aggressive style on and off the felt.  That style proved profitable today as he was able to beat some very good tournament pros to take down $41,000 for first place.  Second place finisher, s00tedj0kers, is steadily racking up some huge scores week in and week out.  This $30,000 score was his 4th biggest cash on PokerStars alone where he now has over $650,000 in tournament scores.  Fourth place finisher “thorladen” is a high-stakes cash game professional who plays in only the biggest tournaments. He has won this event twice and he won the Sunday500 last November.  Overall he has nearly $1,000,000 in cashes on PokerStars.

The final event of the day on Stars is the appropriately-named Second Chance.  The $250,000 guaranteed tournament gives every grinder one last chance at a big Sunday score.  “Norm427” and “makemefoldAA” made it all the way down to heads-up play where a nice battle ensued.   Looking at their records it seems Norm427 had quite the experience advantage, with 25 scores over $10,000 to his name coming into this final table. As we’ve seen in the past, experience had little impact on the outcome, as makemefoldAA took down the title and nearly $50,000.

The only non-FTOPS event of the day on FullTilt was the Sunday Mulligan, a $200+$16 buy-in $200k guaranteed freeze-out.  This week 18 of FullTilt’s very own sponsored professionals played including Brandon Adams, Isaac “Menlo” Baron, and cash game pro Eric Liu.  For once a FullTilt Pro made the final table, and this time it was “Nordberg”.  Unfortunately his stay was short-lived as he busted in 9th place, earning just under $4,000. Heads-Up play came down to “StoneTemplPilot” and “SickGambl00r”.   Both players did not have much of a track record in major events, with neither having a 5-figure score to their name.  Eventually StoneTemplPilot took down the title when his K5o outran A2o in the final hand:
