  • FTOPS-X Crowns Main Event Winner “Julian Verse”

    Sunday, November 16th, 2008 by t2admin

The 10th installment of FullTiltPoker’s infamous FTOPS (Full Tilt Online Poker Series) finally came to a close last night as “Julian Verse” whittled his way through a field of more than 5,000 competitors to emerge victorious, claiming the FTOPS-X crown and nearly half of a million dollars.

The FTOPS- Main Event at FullTiltPoker.com saw incredible participation levels as 5,225 entrants forked over the $500+$35 buy-in (or won a seat via satellite competitions) to take part in the massive No Limit Texas Hold’em event, with a guaranteed prize pool of $2.5 million. FullTiltPoker.net Pro and FTOPS-X Main Event host Scott Montgomery looked on as the heightened entries increased the prize pool to $2,612,500 before registration closed.

Lasting just 4 minutes shy of 12 hours from the start of the Main Event to the nail-biting finish, Julian Verse was finally able to oust “sckilla” in heads-up play to take down the monumental Main Event. It was an extraordinary effort by Verse, who went into heads-up play as the low stack even after being responsible for sending “Hummelhintern” to the rails in 3rd.

Not much is known about “Julian Verse”, except that he is an exceptional online poker player who has rightfully earned a place in the history books among the likes of FTOPS-IX winner “dubbeemin” and other past winners like “cheesemonster” and “Spiked”.
