Event #20 kicked off this Friday at 2pm eastern.  The $200 buy-in event saw 2,360 entrants vying for their share of the $472,000 prize pool ($72,000 more than the guarantee).  Adam Noone was the Red Pro host and unfortunately for him, was also the first Red Pro of the 22 that entered to be eliminated, in 1925th place.  Other Full Tilt Pros included Huck Seed, Lee Watkinson, Mike Matusow, Andy Bloch and David Pham.

This six-max tournament began with a “super stack” for each participant, 5,000 in chips. The action was fast and furious thanks to the six-max structure.  The Red Pro to make it the deepest in this one was Huck Seed, who had a very nice run, finishing in 11th place, for a win of $4,484.  However,  it was weshcousin who was able to outlast the rest and take down the top prize of $92,984.  The final table started out like this:

doezz with 3,163,147 in chips

wesh cousin with 2,159,514 in chips

Doctor_Fun with 2,118,310 in chips

JBlaze20 with 1,822,555 in chips

lilfishy897 with 1,275,157 in chips

and bankrollme87 with 1,261,317 in chips

JBlaze went out in 6th place and took $14,868 for the effort.  In 5th place, and winning $22,184, was bankrollme87.  4th place was taken by doezz, the chip leader going into the final table ($31,152).  The third place finisher was Doctor_Fun, who won $40,828 for a nice run in this tournament.

Once things got down to the final table, it looked like it was not going to be a long battle.  lilfishy897 held an incredible chip lead of 10,930,137 to wesh cousin’s 869,863.  However, wesh was fortunate enough to double up several times.  His big break came during heads up play when he was down more than 2 to 1 in chips and got it all in, hoping his 57% equity would hold up.
