Event 12 - a thousand dollar buy-in NLHE tourney - in the currently running Full Tilt Online Poker Series XI produced a great return on investment for player "Zugwat" this week, earning him a $350 450 payday.
The event was just one of several $1.5 million guaranteed events in the current series, which has had ambitious Internet poker fans flocking to the world's second largest online poker venue, and permitted each entrant one free re-buy if they bust out within the first 2 hours of play.
The event pulled in 1 630 players, with over 970 of them going for the re-buy option and generating a prize pool that overtook the guaranteed amount by $130 000.
Going into the final table, Chris (The Universe 112) Leveroni held a substantial chip lead of over $1 million, but in the end only managed a fourth place finish that nevertheless gave him a $130 400 check to take home. Third placed "pwnosaurus" also managed a six-figure result, collecting $164 630 for his time and trouble.
Going into the heads up it was Mike (SowersUNCC) Sowers holding an almost $4 million chip lead over Steve (Zugwat) Silverman on $4 653 324, and it looked like a foregone conclusion that Sowers would dominate and win....but as so often happens in poker a combination of skill and good cards reversed the positions of the two finalists and it was Zugwat who took home the bacon, winning the respect and the first prize of $350 450. Sowers was left with a still exciting payout of $221 680 for his second placing.
