HEADLINE: Online Poker: Matt 'Mattyv' Vengrin Wins FTOPS Event No. 9

Isaac 'WestmenloAA' Baron Also Makes Final Table Amid Stacked Top 20

Another day, another Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) event, and the prize pool rose above $1 million once again.

Last night’s event was the $300 buy-in sixhanded no-limit hold’em (with rebuys) tournament. The event had a $450,000 guarantee but crushed that number when the 1,133 entrants rebought 1,652 times and added on 569 times, bringing the total prize pool to $1,006,200. The first-place finisher stood to snag $209,793.

And there were plenty of notable players still in the running when it got down to the top 20. Among those still in the tournament were Annette “Annette_15” Obrestad, Isaac “mjorgenson13” Baron (better known as westmenloAA), Jordan “pimpin_pens” Smith (better known as scarface_79), Owen “ocrowe” Crowe, Steve “thorladen” Weinstein, and Matt “mattyv” Vengrin. Of those six players, four were knocked out before the final table. Annette_15 finished in 17th ($6,540), ocrowe in 13th ($8,050), thorladen in 10th ($15,093) and pimpin_pens in seventh ($21,130).

Mjorgenson13 and mattyv both made it to the final table of six players, but mjorgenson13 became the second elimination of the table. He took home $53,329 for fifth place. Mattyv made it to heads-up play with johnnypoker69 and mattyv wound up raking in the final pot. He took down the $209,793 first-place prize and the exclusive gold FTOPS jersey avatar.

The final results were:

1) Matt “mattyv” Vengrin - $209,723
2) johnnypoker69 - $139,862
3) readmyline - $99,614
4) BLAKE39 - $74,459
5) Isaac “mjorgenson13” Baron - $53,329
6) qwerty987 - $34,211

Today’s event is a $100,000-guaranteed seven-card stud tournament with a $200 buy-in (with $16 entry fee). The tournament starts at 9 p.m. ET.
