Benjamin “psychobenny” Spindler made his first career Full Tilt Poker $1K Monday final table this past spring, but fell short of a win. Spindler had another chance this past Monday, as the summer is drawing to a close.

He made the most of his second appearance at the final table of the event, winning for a solid payday of $101,250.

Joe “HOODINI10” Udine also walked away with a win this week. Udine took down the Absolute Poker $150,000 guarantee for $60,060.

While the wins for Spindler and Udine boosted their respective standings in the 2010 Card Player Online Player of the Year (OPOY) race to the top 40, the major OPOY implication from this week was from Aditya “intervntion” Agarwal’s second-place finish in the PokerStars Super Tuesday.

Agarwal gained 400 OPOY points for the runner-up finish, putting him in eighth place with 6,196 points. He now has $560,866 in OPOY earnings on the year.
