Tournament Review for 6-2-2007 through 6-3-2007

0

Dan "javahound" Tarnopol has been crushing tournaments on PokerStars for the majority of 2007, and this weekend he had his biggest win yet. That win was a first place finish in the $200 rebuy, which was good for $50k. He defeated high stakes guru Dariominieriheads up, after going through a final table that included ranked players lucky sevenand Imper1um. P5er Pass_72 was also at the final table and finished 6th in the event.

One other P5er won a big Sunday event this week, and that was ostrichman, who took down the UltimateBet $200k Guaranteed. His final table was also filled with P5s members, including wombat009(3rd), jakz101poker(5th), two8off(7th), TheWacoKidd(8th—this is what he does on days he's not final tabling huge live events), and Kasedowgy(9th).

Long time P5s member mrpbroke through with a huge score in the Sunday Million this week after chopping with five others at the final table. He ended up winning $80k after losing the heads up match for the $30k left on the table. Xpugn0was also at the final table and finished 8th.

Also on Stars, two more P5ers went deep in the Sunday Warm Up. PSBtook second overall, and BrokenTPotfinished 6th.

Gbmantis almost added another major victory to his resume on Sunday, but he had to settle for second in the Sunday Second Chance $200k, which was still worth over $27k. Jurollowas the fourth place finisher in the Second Chance, and P5ers mgmitchand WhoTheHellrounded out the final table, finishing 8th and 9th respectively.

Since PocketFives.com is now tracking tournaments on Absolute for the rankings, we're also going to be including their Saturday major in this report from now on. It didn't take long for us to track a couple P5ers at the final table of this $150k guaranteed event (which had a very nice overlay of nearly $20k, by the way). Lehmanand Rcrane082985took 6th and 7th place.

Three P5ers made the final five in the Bodog $100k, but they fell victim in order in 3rd through 5th place. Aaron_Hackerwas the highest finisher of the three, and he edged out the other two, amak316and wmmcl, to take 3rd place and a prize of $9k.

Also on Sunday, Anbessatook 9th place in the Full Tilt $400k Guaranteed, which has a buy in of $200+16.
