Tournament Review for 12-30-2007

0

PokerStarshad their quarterly $1k buy in Sunday Million on Sunday, and a couple familiar names found their way to six-figure scores. Thechemist83, a long-time successful player on PokerRoom, took 2nd in the event for $178k. Right behind him was Denmark's top player Klausen(pictured), who finished 3rd for $126k.

One other P5er made the final table: Belabacsi was the 9th place finisher. His result netted him over $15k.

Bodoghas been bringing in some sizeable overlays in recent weeks, and this week's house addition of nearly $25k was no different. P5ers Joe McGuire, Catfish4u, and Grave Dangerwere all able to cash in on the opportunity, taking 4th, 7th, and 8th places respectively.

On PartyPokerthis week, eisenhower1of Sweden was able to take 8th place in the $300k Guaranteed. This past winner of the Bodog $100k has been extremely successful throughout the last year in online poker. Also putting up a big result was ael1979, who won the Stars Sunday Warm-Up, which paid over $106k.

$JMONEY$(left) hasn't been putting in a ton of online volume, but he still pulls the big results from time to time. This week, it was a 2nd place finish in the $200 rebuy on Stars for just under $36k, losing to online phenom Dariominieriheads up. Also at the final table were P5ers TheOmaholic, CrazyMarco, toetagU, and topherhess.

P5er snugglez88had a huge online win as well this weekend. He took down the 2nd Chance $200 on Stars for over $57k. He had to defeat fellow P5er lnettles2heads up. Also at the final table was BigArmo, who took 9th place.

P0KERPR033 (right) was up to his old tricks on UltimateBet, nearly taking home the top prize and still cashing for $26.5k. Several other familiars were at the final table, including makavelyces, koolkeith13, Jeff_Labowski, Wachovia, and grtwhitehoop.

In this week's Sunday Majors on Full Tilt, we got to see a number of our members come close to the top prizes. D1rtyR1v3rand Danny "The__D__RY" Ryan were the 3rd and 4th place finishers in the $750k guaranteed. In the Sunday Mulligan, tmfd001was the runner up, edging out DANAand weeminer, who finished 3rd and 4th. Phatcattook 6th place in the event, and chicagocards1finished 7th.
