Poker history written at FTOPS: player wins two events in the same day

Posted by: James Carter. - Sun, 2008-08-17 05:25

The Full Tilt Online Poker Series is a perpetual source of online poker excitement. Big poker names are drawn to FTOPS events, and records are broken all the time.- a couple of days ago yet another FTOPS record was set, one that will probably take very long to top. A player known online as „yuvee04” took down the first prize in 2 different FTOPS events in the very same day. “yuvee04” has been playing at Full Tilt Poker for a while. As a matter of fact, taking home first prize in a FTOPS event is not new to him either. His two victories presented in this article were in fact his second and third FTOPS wins. That makes him the holder of another record: he is the player who has won more events than anyone in the FTOPS since it was launched back in 2006. His first win was in 2007, in a $100 Stud eight or better event. He also has a WSOP final table presence under his belt. The first win of his twin-performance came in event #14, which adds even more significance to it on account of the fact that it was a H.O.R.S.E. event. Such mixed events require loads of skills in all poker variants involved, which means that winners of such events are pretty much complete-package players.

Event #14 cost Yuval Bronshtein (the person behind the nick) $500 to enter, and he walked away with more than $70k after all was said and done, having bested Steve Zolotow, Chris Moorman and Brian Devonshire in the process.

His second win of the day came in event #15, a NL Holdem Turbo event which featured a buy-in of $200. Coming fresh off his H.O.R.S.E. victory, Bronshtein fought his way up a field of 2,472 to secure his second gold for the day. The first prize consisted of $101k, and the final table that he had to send to the rail included Mark Newhouse.

The large number of players in various FTOPS events, and the fact that its popularity keeps on growing, makes it extremely unlikely that anybody will ever beat Yuval Bronshtein’s newly set record.
