The Sunday Scoop: Is there a RugDoctor In the House?

David WIlliams
Newly minted Team PokerStars Pro David Williams, who used to play under the screen name RugDoctor before switching to dwilliams, won PokerStars' Sunday 2nd Chance yesterday.

There was big money on the line all over the web making for another massive Sunday online.

FTOPS XVII's final day made things interesting over on Full Tilt with three events and a total of $4.75 million guaranteed.

The Michael Craig hosted $240+$16 Knockout Six-Max saw 5,055 entrants with DrunkSpirit grabbing the title and $193,121.22 first prize. BgsaPnaples lost heads-up, but still walked away with $118k.

The final Rush Poker event on the schedule also went off, with 1,589 entrants, 3,810 rebuys and 964 add-ons in the $150+$13 Rush Rebuy.

In the end, Dalbaiyob booked the win, hauling in $202,206.75 and an FTOPS Jersey while Davidp18 had to settle for second and $129,805.20.

Finally, the $600+$40 FTOPS XVII main event drew 4,805 leaving Full Tilt on the hook for a bit of an overlay to make up the rest of a $3 million guarantee.

TyboVegas outlasted the entire field to grab the amazing $513k first prize. He beat DQnk heads up, leaving him with $357k in second-place money, while flagal43 took third for $255k, roo7227 grabbed third  for $192,000 and Ship_the_dollar managed fourth for $143,000.

Over on PokerStars the Sunday Million made it's $1.5 million guarantee with relative ease again, drawing 8,294 players.

Four players earned six figures here after a chop at the top, including eventual winner blumenkind53, who cashed for $160,781.86.

The lion's share of the prize pool went to second place finisher RAZZER777, who made $168,720.27, while YouHave2outs cashed $151,081.10 for third and The Pot SWE grabbed $149,101.66 for fourth.

While Sirocko earned $97,750 winning the Sunday 500 by defeating a final table that included Shannon "basebal1b" Shorr, the biggest story coming out of PokerStars may have been the stellar showing of one of the sites newest pros.

David Williams, who signed as the 2010 WSOP was wrapping up, bested 1,627 players to win the $215 Sunday 2nd Chance.

The $57,728.88 payday should mean the 2010 WPT Championship winner is already enjoying his time as a Team PokerStars Pro.

Meanwhile on UB, one of its pros made a run at the site's biggest Sunday tournament.

Billy Kopp could manage no better than 11th, however, as RDCRSN and MARAHAJA1928 went on to chop up UB's $200k Guaranteed.
