Print-icon
 

Full Tilt Online Poker SeriesThe Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) XIV is now at its halfway point, and it’s safe to say that the popular tournament series has done its part to influence the Card Player Online Player of the Year race.

Thanks to his third-place finish in event No. 3, Thayer “THAY3R” Rasmussen has leaped into fourth place in the rankings and sits just 122 points from his good friend, Shaun “TedsFishFry” Deeb, in third place.

Deeb is currently in third place because David “Sir Sands” Sands took fifth place in event No. 4, allowing him to jump into second place overall. Sands is now 1,048 points from leader Steve “gboro780” Gross.

As far as the men in red are concerned, a few of them are having a solid series as well. Both Julian Garder and Steve Zolotow scored runner-up finishes for Full Tilt, but David Pham did them one better by winning event No. 14 for $69,570.
