The fifteenth edition of the Full Tilt Online Series of
Poker (FTOPS) started Wednesday night with the first
event sending a clear signal that online poker has lost
none of its popularity.
Event 1 - a $216 buy-in
NLHE tournament with a guaranteed $1 million prize pool
pulled in a crowd of 5 646 players - 20 percent more
than the same event in the previous FTOPS 14, although
still short of the record breaking 5 712 players who
showed up for the same event in FTOPS 13.
up to his 'handle', the winner of the main $151 000
prize in this year's first event was SolidGoldman24k
after a heads up chop with PHHSKid99.
remaining 26 events in FTOPS XV will be monitored to see
if the positive trend persists.
