Tournament Review for 4-22-2007

0

The cashes continued to pile up this week for P5ers, and Hoodini10once again showed his weekend dominance, taking down the Sunday Warm Up on PokerStars. His win was worth over $70k, and on his way there, he was forced to contend with fellow P5ers Stoffiand kballsy, who took 7th and 9th place respectively.

Despite it being the biggest tournament wonby a P5er this week, the biggest cashby a P5er was WiCane's share of a three-way chop in the Sunday Million. He ended up getting to keep $113k in the deal, which also included P5er anywhat, who received $90k. Ship Happenswas also at the final table, and he finished 6th for about $31k.

MortalNutzalso took down a Sunday Major, when he defeated Gotskillz?heads up in the $200 rebuy to claim the first prize of over $43k. Every week, we report that several P5ers were at that final table, and this week was no different. In addition to the top two, bastet(3rd), March PLB Champion YourTimeIsUp(5th), bigjoe03(7th), t soprano(8th), and kwob20(9th) were all in the final group.

The "Second Chance" $200 wasn't dominated as much by P5ers as the other majors on Stars, but we still saw Premiertake 5th and highly ranked Deuce2Highfinish 8th. The winner of the tournament was ch0ppy, who also made the final table of the $300k Guaranteed on PartyPoker, finishing 5th overall.

On Full Tilt, we saw perhaps the most amazing story of the year so far, in terms of online poker success. DuckU took down the $400k Guaranteed just one week after he won the $750k Guaranteed on the same site. His wins added up to well over $200k, which would make anyone happy, and he also managed to take down P5ers heads up both weeks. This week, the victim was bdluss, and Donkey5layerwas also in deep, finishing 4th.

Pbdrunkscontinued his strong Sunday play this week, finishing 2nd in the UltimateBet $200k Guaranteed. Uncledrkmeat wasn't far behind, taking 4th place, and Gank, SCTrojans, and UGOTPZDfinished in order in the 6th-8th spots.

Last but not least, Cmoney3had a nice big cash in the Bodog $100k, taking $14k for 2nd place. Saxton82finished 3rd, and P5er Stiches, who was recently featured in a story on the site after final tabling two Sunday events on the same day, once again made it deep in a major, finishing 6th overall.
