FTOPS Day 5: Sebastian "p00cket00" Sikorski Defeats Chris Moorman Heads-up in Event #11


The Full Tilt Online Poker Series XXI continued Thursday with two more events from the 35-event schedule — Event #10 $216 Limit Hold'em Rush Multi-Entry w/ Rebuys and Event #11 $322 No-Limit Hold’em Shootout.

Both tournaments saw some of online poker's biggest names reach final tables. In Event #10, Aussie phenom James "TheFatFISH" Obst finished runner-up to "bullyingpros" to collect $11,400. And in Event #11, Sebastian "p00cket00" Sikorski ousted Chris "Moorman1" Moorman heads-up for the title and more than $27,000.

Thursday's win pushed Sikorski into the top 10 of the FTOPS XXI leaderboard. He sits in sixth place with 294 points, still a large margin behind points leader "mrcall912" (431 points), who finished fourth in Event #10 on Thursday. Notables Jeremiah "Believer8219" Vinsant (4th — 300 points), Chance "Chances Cards" Kornuth (6th — 272 points) and Chris “maxxscam” Back (10th — 235 points) are also in the top 10 of the leadrboard.

Here’s a summary of Thursday’s tournaments:

Event #10: $216 Limit Hold'em Rush Multi-Entry

Event #10 fell short of its $75,000 guaranteed prize pool, meaning the 363 players in attendance had a $2,400 overlay. The event still brought out some of the biggest names in the game and many former FTOPS champs, including James “TheFatFish” Obst, who reached his seventh career FTOPS final table.

Obst was seeking his third FTOPS jersey, but ultimately fell short after losing heads-up to "bullingpros". Also making the final table was "mrcall912," who increased his lead in the FTOPS XXI leaderboard with a fourth place finish in this event. On Tuesday, "mrcall912" won Event #6, the $216 H.O.R.S.E. tournament for $18,699.
