Full Tilt Sunday Mulligan
The Full Tilt Sunday Mulligan reached over 1200 players this weekend and almost broke the $250K prize pool threshold although it came up just shy of the number. Aleks Gutcu ended up winning the event and took home $54,164 for his efforts this weekend. A couple notable names that made it to the final table of the event include Paul Lieu (5th) and Dan Hirleman (7th).

Full Tilt $750K Guarantee
The one tournament everyone at PokerRockets.com waits for every week is the $750K Guarantee. This week there was a solid turnout with almost 4000 players starting the $216 event. The prize pool that was shared amongst the top finishers exceeded $750K so there wasn’t an overlay in the event, but there rarely is nowadays due to the popularity of the tournament. EatMyBluff8 ended up taking home first place for $100,972.92, but it could have been a lot more. The top 3 players decided that they would cut a deal so that they all walked away with a considerable amount of money. Machinguer finished 2nd and won roughly $90K while Blazed3x1 finished in 3rd place and won a tad over $80K.
A $200+ buy-in might be a bit much for some of you guys out there, but there are other ways to earn a seat into the events. Full Tilt runs satellite events all week long where you can earn a seat into one of the events above for a few dollars. You should definitely try them out if you haven’t, as you just never know when it could be your time to have your screen name listed amongst the winners here.
