The Sunday Scoop: THE_D_RY Deep in Brawl

Danny Ryan

The Super Bowl didn’t stop thousands of poker players from logging onto their favorite poker sites during another busy Sunday yesterday and PokerListings has all the news in our brand new Sunday Scoop feature below.

As usual PokerStars led the way with a Sunday Million that drew 9,031 to create a prize pool of $1.8 million.

U.S. online player palurdo annihilated the field and, after making a heads-up deal with golferen50, took down the tournament for a $248,791 score.

Steve “Ilini213” Barshak, who won a $50k guaranteed on PokerStars for $18,700 in December, made an even bigger score yesterday when he outlasted all 1,013 entries in the PokerStars Sunday 500 to win $88,536.

Meanwhile, on Full Tilt there was a small overlay in the Sunday $750k Guaranteed, much to the delight of the 3,542 players that entered. Online player pokerNIRVana5 took the title for $111,037.

Full Tilt’s other major tournament – The Sunday Brawl – saw an established poker pro make the final table.

Danny “THE_D_RY” Ryan finished in fourth place to earn $42,121. Ryan has an impressive tournament record that includes big live scores at EPT Dortmund and EPT Copenhagen in 2008.

Ryan has also claimed victories in most of the Sunday majors including the PokerStars Sunday Million and the Full Tilt $750k Guaranteed. He’ll have to wait another day to add the Sunday Brawl to that list, however, as DedoDeGorila was the ultimate winner yesterday.

Finally, in the UB $200k Guaranteed, Jason “JP OSU” Potter finished runner up to YANKEE47. YANKEE officially earned $44,920 while Potter took $26,900, although there was some sort of chop.
