The Full Tilt Online Poker Series XXII continued Sunday with three more events, two of which came to a conclusion late in the evening. Champions were crowned in Event #35 and Event #36, while the prestigious two-day $2,100 No-Limit Hold'em event played down to the money.
Event #34 was a multi-entry event which saw a total of 776 entries post the $2,100 buy-in, creating a prize pool of $1,552,000. Many of online poker's top tournament players performed well and were still alive when the money bubble burst. The day ended with 84 players left and Russia's "-GROMOV DMITRY-" leading the way with 166,288 in chips. He was followed closely by Kevin "-1SickDisease-" Eyster with 160,645. The winner will be determined Sunday (European time) and take home $333,680. Here's a look at the biggest stacks entering Sunday's Day 2:
