Yesterday the long-awaited re-match between Viktor "Isildur1" Blom and Tom "durrrr" Dwan was played across four $100/$200 No Limit Hold'em tables on Full Tilt Poker. Both players were supposed to bring $100k each to the tables, but late negations were made and instead they sat down with $200,000 each.
Tom Dwan accumulated a small lead in the beginning of the match thanks to winning an all-in (pre-flop) with KK against Blom's 10's. Blom started playing more aggressive after this, but Tom Dwan handled it well and extended his lead by calling down a few river bluffs.
However, Dwan's lead was never very big and eventually Viktor Blom's super-aggressive style started working. Blom took down the 2 biggest pots of the match and was up about $100k after 1,5 hour of play. Blom didn't give Dwan a single chance to catch his breathe once he had the big lead. In fact, it didn't take long before Tom Dwan was forced down to one table - where he kept on losing...
After 2 hours and 45 minutes (1381 hands) Dwan lost his final $3.5k with pockets 10's against Blom's A[c]3[c] in an all-in situation before the flop - the board ran out Q[s]8[c]6[d]A[h]6[s]. It was a well-deserved win by the young Swede, who made a name for himself in November 2009 by crushing Tom Dwan at Full Tilt Poker's nosebleed tables. Back then, the two were playing for millions of dollars on daily basis. Let's hope that history repeats itself!
The first 11 events in FTOPS XXI has now been concluded. Events 12 through 18 will be played during this weekend which will mark the end of the first half of the 35 events. So far, the leaderboard rank 1 is held by player mrcall912, closely followed by fowirls and Garbally. mrcall912 took home the first place in event #6, played on 4th of December, which was a HORSE event with a total prize pool of $75,000 and the fourth place in event #10, hold'em Limit Rush Multi-Entry tournament .

The guaranteed prize pool was $750,000 but it turned out to be over $1 million in the pot to be battled for.

Not less than 1,841 players took part in Full Tilt Online Poker Series Event 18, $207+$9 Rush NLH Super Turbo, which created a prize pool of $381,097.

After many, many hours of play the tournament was down to a final table, a final table which included no one else than online legend Shaun Deeb who has an FTOPS title and several major scores in his resume already.
Deeb played fantastic poker before the final table and it was easy to see that many of his final table opponents avoided to play against him. After a couple of hours he also stood as the champion with $132,787 to add to his Full Tilt bankroll.
Yesterday, MiniFTOPS XV kicked off with a NL Hold'em $350,000 guarantee tournament for the buy-in of $20+$2. If you missed out on that event, then don't worry! Full Tilt's MiniFTOPS XV will run till 21 March and around $6 million is still up for grabs in remaining 26 events!
The thing which makes MiniFTOPS so great, apart from the millions guaranteed by Full Tilt, is that that the buy-in of each event is only 1/10 of big brother FTOPS. This makes it possible for almost anyone to play a couple of events with the chance of winning big and still not having to risk losing a lot of money.
Open an account at Full Tilt today and take part in the MiniFTOPS XV! We'll give you 27% rakeback to make sure that you get the best possible start!
