Full Tilt’s Online Poker Series got off to a great start this week with huge 환전가능 꽁머니 prize pools and a wide variety of buy-ins. Last night a $500+$35 shoot-out event pitting 729 of the world’s best tournament players crowned “nypitbull24″ as its champion.
A shoot-out tournament has multiple tournaments inside the tournaments. Players started on 81 tables (9 players each) and played until each table only had 1 player left. From there 9 more table were formed (9 players each) and play resumed until 1 player was left on each table. Those remaining nine players made up the final table.
Twenty-four of FullTilt’s Sponsored Professionals played Event #3 including Isaac “Menlo” Baron, Mike “the Mouth” Matutsow, and Andy Bloch. Three of the pros, Greg “FBT” Mueller, Scott Fischman, and Eddy Scharf won their first table but were unable to advance to the final table.
The biggest name at the final table had to be Steve “MrSmokey1″ Bilirakis, well known for being one of the youngest WSOP braclet winners in history. He is also quite a force online, having won the $109r on PokerStars last year. Unfortunately Bilirakis lost a huge flip early at the final table (KQ<TT) and never fully recovered, busting in 6th place. The results can be found below:
Prop bet, also called a side bet, prop, or exotic, is a bet made on an outcome or a proposition. These can be anything from statistics and happenstance in a regular game to personal, one-of-a-kind bets.
Poker is a thoroughly entertaining game, from the suck-outs to the sick reads to the tournament bubble boys. But you know what’s really exciting? Poker pros like Tony G and Daniel Negreanu making prop bets on any type of oddity to feed their action junkie instincts.
The play at the tables is clearly not enough to satisfy the impulse of these professional players, as there are hundreds of documented incidents (most hilarious) of prop bets ranging from marshmallow mouth stuffing to a prop bets championship title. Who wouldn’t want to see Tony G compete in a foot race with a professional basketball player running backwards? Or Gavin Smith stuff his face with marshmallows while Phil Laak keeps an eagle eye on the clock?
Below are five of some of the more remarkable prop bets made in the last couple of years:
