Posted at 15:25 2012-12-10 by Brett Collson

The Full Tilt Online Poker Series XXI continued Saturday with three more events: Event #14 $535 No-Limit Hold’em Heads-up, Event #15 $322 Pot-Limit Omaha Six-Max and Event #16 $216 NL Hold'em Rush. All of the events were well past their guarantee, and three more winners were crowned in Nick "canofcorn22" Petrangelo, "veeea" and "Branko07".

Saturday's win moved "veeea" into the top 10 of the FTOPS XXI leader board. He sits in eighth place with 330 points, and "mrcall912" maintains his lead with 431 points. "canofcorn22" jumped up to 11th place with 309 points, and "Branko07" moved to 28th place.

Here’s a summary of Saturday's tournaments:

Event #14 $535 No-Limit Hold’em Heads-up

Event #14 easily surpassed its $100,000 guaranteed prize pool as 301 players generated a prize pool of $150,500. Of those making deep runs were Luke "IWEARGOGGLES" Staudenmaier (13th — $3,010) and Bryn "OnceUponAStar" Kenney (9th — $3,010). Of those two, Kenney moved himself up the FTOPS XXI leader board into fourth place with 374 points after a good overall showing on Saturday.

Heads-up play came down to Petrangelo and eventual runner-up "naimad89". Petrangelo won the duel to earn the $36,872.50 first-place prize, but "naimad89" scooped up a nice payday of $21,070 for his efforts. With this score, Petrangelo boosted his all-time online tournament winnings to over $3 million.

Event #15 attracted 534 runners and surpassed the $100,000 prize pool by $60,200. Of that field, the top 66 places were paid out, and notables Mohsin "chicagocards1" Charania (32nd — $736.92) and Timothy "highlandfox" Finne (9th — $2,659.32) both cashed, but fell short of the final table.

At the final table, it was Russia's "veeea" versus the United Kingdom's "The_Real_Kid83" at the end, and the two struck a deal before playing to a winner. With the deal, "The_Real_Kid83" actually scored more money for $30,431.17, but "veeea" walked away with the gold jersey and $28,041.83.
