This past weekend was a great weekend for poker, as Full Tilt Poker’s FTOPS 8 is knee deep into the series, with enormous prize pools being paid out. It was quite the Sunday, as a huge name took down the Sunday Warmup on Poker Stars.

First things first. The biggest tournament yesterday by far, was the $322 FTOPS #9 Event on Full Tilt Poker, which had a $1.5 million dollar guarantee. 5,090 players showed up, all vying for the $263k first place prize. After over eleven hours of play, _FlaXmarZ_ was able to take the crown, and the extremely impressive $263k.
