ActionJeffonce again showed his excellence at the tables this weekend, picking up the biggest win of his career, the $54k first prize in the $200k guaranteed on PartyPoker. A couple other noteable players at that final table were BluffMag(6th) and Bernti(7th).

Randersand HighYield6also picked up huge wins this weekend. Randers(playing as $*Haddox*$) was the 4th place finisher in the PokerStars $500k guaranteed, which paid over $83k after a chop, and HighYield6took 3rd prize in the $200k on Full Tilt, which was just under $30k.

One of the more impressive accomplishments of the weekend was P5er NotoriousBILmaking the final table of the $150k guaranteed on UltimateBet for the second straight week. He finished 3rd overall last week and 6th this week.

Rizenand PHARLAP 2both made the final table of the $100k on Paradise, finishing 4th and 10th respectively. TheBeattook 7th on Bodog in their $100k. Sirio11won about $5k in the $500k on PokerStars, but just missed the final table.

In action outside of the majors, PearlJammerwas the 2nd place finisher in the big Sunday $100 rebuy on PokerStars, which paid more than $15k this week, and MarvinGardentook down the Sunday $150 tournament on PokerRoom.
