Tournament Review for 1-21-2007

0

We followed him when he nearly made the top 100 in the WSOP Main Event last year, and this time, we followed him all the way to the finish line. Vegan213(right)took down the

Full Tilt $750k Guaranteed on Sunday for $141k, an incredible score that puts him in an elite group of P5ers that have made a 6-figure score in a poker tournament.

Amazingly, four of the top five in that event were P5s members. Cliff819and IWEARGOGGLESwere the 2nd and 3rd place finishers, taking home $87k and $60k respectively, and two-time WSOP bracelet winner Eric Froehlich, whose P5s name is efro, finished 5th for $35k. Bubbagump22was also at that final table, where he took 9th place.

In addition to all those big scores on Full Tilt, one very familiar name had a huge payday on PokerStars this week. Long time online winner and original PocketFives.com #1 ranked player brsavage(left) took 3rd place in this week's Sunday Million, which was worth more than $67k!

Rizenpulled off a notable feat, finishing 2nd in the $200 rebuy for the second consecutive week. Eric was disappointed in not closing it out, but he still received more than 25,000 reasons to be happy about the finish. As usual, multiple P5ers were at that final table, including apestylesand ansky451, who finished 6th and 9th respectively.

Agriffrod (right) gave all his OT buddies reason to be proud this week as well, taking 4th place in the Second Chance $200. P5er BOUJAfinished 6th in the event. The other $200 freezeout, the $250k Guaranteed Sunday Warm Up, also featured two P5ers at the final table, and those two were miamivice(2nd) and demosthen3s(6th).

Once again, a P5er took down the UltimateBet $200k Guaranteed this week, which has become a pretty frequent occurance. This week it was stevie444taking home the first prize of $45,000. Readers here may recall that TheWacoKiddfinished 2nd in this event last week, and he was featured on the front page of the Tournament Review. This week, he finished just shy of his previous performance, taking 3rd place for more than $18k and completing an amazing back-to-back performance.

Three other well-known P5ers were at that final table on UB. Atimostook 5th place, leggggggggggytook 8th, and Dave118finished 10th.

One other P5er who made a Sunday major final table this week was gilbertology, who plays as "sportsmoney" on Bodog. He ended up taking 10th in the $100k Guaranteed, which was back to its old ways with a substantial overlay of nearly $14k.

As always, congrats to all P5ers who cashed in the weekend events. Here are the final table results:
