Tournament Review for 2-18-2005 through 2-20-2005

0

Tournament action was juicy this weekend on all the sites, and as usual, a lot of PocketFives.com ranked players had standout performances. UltimateBet was down a little from last week in their $200+15 events, but still had a prize pool well above their $100k guarantee. Participation on PartyPoker was also down a bit this week, but PokerStars had a record prizepool for their $200+15 this week of over $500k, with over 2,500 people participating.

No ranked players from PocketFives.com came extremely close to the final table in the ¼ million guaranteed on PartyPoker, but browerkid and gator93 finished 47th and 52nd respectively. Gator93 was on a great run until someone pushed all-in with AT against his QQ and flushed out. The highest ranked finishers on PokerStars this week were Bryan Bevis (7th) and Sdouble (30th).BR>
In the UltimateBet $100k Guaranteed $200+15 event, acesfull23 finished second (after finishing 7th on PokerStars earlier in the day as Bryan Bevis), giving him a nice total payday of about $37k. Other noteables achieving paydays in this one were Impact3 (8th), rodm763 (22nd), and KUJayHawk08 (36th).

The Paradise tourney had a nice prize pool, and although no ranked players made it to the final table, Aawwnutz finished 11th and my3sons finished 16th, and they each got a nice payout for making it so far.
