The second pot-limit Omaha hi/lo event on the FTOPS XXI slate saw 460 players pony up the $256 buy-in, creating a prize pool worth $92,000. Well-known poker pro Bill Gazes, now living in Brazil, headlined the final table, and went on to win the event after a heads-up chop with fellow Brazil native "BredaBreda." Gazes collected more than $19,000 and his first FTOPS jersey.

Event 20: No-Limit Hold'em Six-Max

Buy-inEntrantsPrize Pool

As you'd expect, the $1,060 price tag in Event 20 brought out some of the best in online poker, and the level of play didn't disappoint. Several notables made deep runs, including Charlie "Chaz_man_chaz" Combes (11th - $5,418), Steve "McNallyville" McNally (20th - $2,902), Mark “xqsays” Radoja (23rd - $2,902) and Kevin "kice32" Iacofano (25th - $2,515).

The final table was loaded with talent as Paur, Palacios and Virtue were each competing for the $92,106 top prize. After Virtue exited in fourth place, Paur, Palacios and "IITTII" agreed to a three-way deal, which saw each secure more than $55,000. Paur went on to win the tournament and his second FTOPS jersey after defeating Palacios heads-up.

Event 21 attracted a massive field of 827 players, but it took only three hours to find a champion in the Turbo format. Steve "McNallyville" McNally, who also cashed in Event 20, bubbled the final table in 10th place, leaving nine players battling for the $33,907 first-place prize.

In the end, the U.K.'s Jareth "hteraaj2001" East was the last man standing. After making a heads-up deal with "Tiltn_Mafks," East won the gold jersey and $28,564.
