The Sunday Scoop: Pearljammer, j.thaddeus Book Big Scores
With no FTOPS or WCOOP events on the schedule this week, Sunday majors like the PokerStars Sunday Million and the Full Tilt $750k Guaranteed were the most hotly contested in online poker once again.
The Sunday Million drew 7,638 players creating a $1,527,600 prize pool.
But while sola100 claimed the $229,143.87 first prize, the biggest news may have been a third-place showing by darrenelias, just one week removed from his sixth-place finish in the WCOOP main event.
Full Tilt’s $750k Guaranteed drew 3,291, meaning the site had to kick in $91,800 to make the guarantee. In the end, RolldUpTrips took down the title and $96,759.43.
But it was pros like Jon “Pearljammer” Turner and Jude “j.thaddeus” Ainsworth who literally stole the headlines this week.
Ainsworth won the PokerStars Sunday Second Chance, beating a field of 1,330 to grab the $48,305.60 first prize, while Turner booked close to a six-figure score winning the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $87,400.00.
Hafiz “hafizzle” Khan (4th) and Travis “TravestyFund” Rice (7th) also made the final table there.
In the meantime, a player by the name of GODBLESSAMERIC grabbed six figures from the Full Tilt Poker Sunday Brawl, taking home the title and $105,641.20.
And although the UB $200K Guaranteed drew just 908, forcing an $18,400 overlay, J4D3DR4G0N still walked away with $44,920 for the win there.
