Tournament Review for 2-3-2005 through 2-5-2005

0

Superbowl weekend didn't slow down most of the online action, although a couple of the sites had fewer than their usual number of entrants. Most noticeable of these reduced fields was the UltimateBet $125k guaranteed, but this was the only major tournament that started during the game, which may explain it.

phatcatsimultaneously got 2nd in two different majors on Sunday, the Bodog $100k guaranteed and the UltimateBet $100k guaranteed $500 buy in. These two tournaments were worth more than $31k to him—congrats on an amazing performance!

PHARLAP 2was a huge winner this weekend, taking down the $250k guaranteed on Paradise for more than $62k. grapsfanfinished 3rd in this tournament for more than $23k. One other P5er to do well on Paradise was Just Survive, who got 5th in the Sunday $150k guaranteed.

A similar win was had by slugglein the $200k guaranteed on PartyPoker. He won it for nearly $63k. mattg1983got 7th in the same. buckohfivetook 9th in the $500k there the next day.

Roothluspulled off a huge score Sunday as well, taking 4th in the biggest tournament of the weekend, the $750k guaranteed on PokerStars. His cut was $48k.

nopoolsand muchakawent 1-2 in the UltimateBet $125k at the end of the night. This one had a nice overlay of more than 20% of the pool. They received $31k and $19k respectively. PearlJammed also took 8th in this one.

3 P5ers made the final table of the $80k guaranteed "Weekly Big Deal" on PokerRoom. PearlJam_10, MarvinGarden, and DelaReinetook 2nd, 4th, and 6th respectively for some nice prizes.

A couple other P5ers to turn in FT performances this weekend were Nordberg, who took 6th in the Bodog $100k guaranteed, Batera, who finished 8th in the $100k guaranteed on UltimateBet, and TheWacoKidd, who was the 5th place finisher in the $60k guaranteed on Full Tilt.

Congrats to everyone on a spectacular weekend!
