Attendance drops, overlay increases for Sunday events

The attendance keeps dropping, and the overlay keeps increasing for the big Sunday tournaments. This weekend, Bodog.com had to come up with $17,200 to match the posted $100,000 guarantee, and the overlay for UltimateBet's $200,000 guaranteed was $20,600.

Only 828 players entered Bodog's $100,000 guaranteed - the third lowest number this year. Other Sunday tournaments did not see equally severe dips in attendance, which has been the case on previous occasions with a notably small starting field at Bodog.com.

There are, however, loyal players who show up to compete at Bodog.com Sunday after Sunday. One of them, capsocool, has had a very successful run the last couple of weeks, with a third-place finish in the event, netting him $9,000, and a first-place finish this week, where he picked up $25,000 in prize money.

Final table results were as follows:

PlaceNamePrize
1st capsocool $25,000
2nd yunghizzles $14,000
3rd JoeBobSD $9,000
4th drexxel7 $6,500
5th tallynole $5,400
6th The__Whale $4,400
7th Hazee Jr $3,400
8th czarcaesarxx $2,400
9th thenoona $1,550

UltimateBet's $200,000 guaranteed continues to struggle with low attendance as well, with only 897 people playing in yesterday's tournament.

Player tutnik11 won the tournament and took home $45,000 in prize money.
