The Sunday Scoop: Near Miss for Adam Levy

Adam Levy

With the poker world still suffering from a massive WSOP-hangover, ROMDOM and kidcardiff were the biggest winners in Sunday tournaments.

As usual PokerStars drew the largest crowd of online players with over 14,000 runners in the Sunday Million, Sunday 500, Sunday Warm-up and Sunday Second Chance alone.

ROMDOM outlasted 8,026 players in the Sunday Million and then beat Frank "gator93" Hernandez to secure a $225,408 payday, although there was a two-way chop.

Former Heartland Poker Tour winner William "punisher03" Givens beat a field of 1,416 to win $51,202 in the Sunday Second Chance.

Meanwhile Full Tilt was hosting its $1 Million Guaranteed Rush Poker event.

Ben "kidcardiff" Warrington outlasted all 1,584 entrants for a tidy $185,000 profit but perhaps the bigger story involved Adam "Roothlus" Levy.

Just one day after finishing 12th place in the 2010 WSOP Main Event for $635,011, Levy came in 14th place, nearly making the final table.

Although Levy only took home $8,200 for his finish, it was another notable cash for the UB pro who is likely having his best year of professional poker.

MastaP89 won the Full Tilt Sunday Mulligan for $61,702 while cmdnst took down the Full Tilt Sunday Rush Brawl for $85,781.

Finally the UB $200k Guaranteed drew nearly 1,000 runners before Justin "TruesyALose" Truesdell won it all for $44,920.

Jamie "thechronic420" Rosen, who plays as Kryptokilla on UB, finished seventh for $6,900.
