Nearly 16,000 players registered for the third event of MiniFTOPS XIX. The event was a $33 Rush Poker tournament. Oh, and you could have bought in multiple times thanks to Full Tilt Poker’s Multi Entry Tournaments. Essentially, it was pure madness as the $100k guaranteed was shattered by the almost $500,000 prize pool. Top prize was $90k.
MiniFTOPS XIX Event 3 was hosted by Stuart Paterson. Paterson, also known as “The Donator”, has made one World Poker Tour (WPT) Final Table. However, Paterson has not been relevant in the poker world since 2006 when he made a deep run in the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event.
None of Paterson’s entries made it in the money but a few Full Tilt Red Pros cashed. Scott Montgomery, Eddy Scharf, and Annette_15 made the money. Unfortunately, no member of team Full Tilt made a significant run.
When it was all said and done. Six players chopped at the final table. The money was distributed relatively equally. The first place finisher, mimipouliot111, received only $6,000 more dollars than Equeen33, who finished in sixth place. Without a deal in place the gap between first and sixth would be $80,000!
Congratulations to the six players who chopped! Remember, MiniFTOPS features multiple tournaments every day until March 20th. If you’re looking for tournament action, look no further than Full Tilt Poker’s MiniFTOPS!
