Tournament Review for 7-21-2007 Through 7-22-2007

0

A few big names picked up Sunday Major wins this week, despite it being a somewhat slow weekend in the online tournament scene. Colson10(pictured) was one of those big winners, as he beat out an always-tough group in the $200 rebuy on PokerStars. Chressytook 3rd in that one, and brsavage, seaanchor, and brynkenneyps1were all in the hunt at the final table.

EC10pulled off a feat that's getting tougher and tougher over the months, due to the increasingly larger fields in the Sunday majors. He final tabled two of the biggest events, taking over $41k for 5th in the Sunday Million and finishing 6th for $8,500 in the $200k Guaranteed on UltimateBet. Maintaining that kind of focus in two events at the same time can't be easy, but EC10 kept his eyes on the prize and walked away with more than $50k.

Batera (left) continued his impressive summer as well. He recently won a Sunday event on Stars, and this week he took down the $150k on Absolute. The win was worth over $41k. Along the way, Batera had to get past P5er NotoriousBIL, who finished 8th in the event.

Another big first place was picked up by UHBigTex, and that win came in the Second Chance on Stars for over $52k. Similarly in the Warm Up, there was just one P5er at the final table, but he made it count. Round42took 3rd in the event, which now carries a $400k guarantee every week. Third place was worth more than $30k.

PearlJammer (right) winning a tournament rarely comes as a surprise, and he's had plenty of good Sundays in the past. This week he took down the Bodog$100k, which had an overlay of over $11k. First prize was worth $25k. Coming in 8th and 9th respectively were WwCROSSwWand chaos0nriver.

On Full Tiltthis week, we didn't get to see any P5ers take home the top prize. We did, however, get to see a couple of strong second place finishes. THE__D__RYhas been in this spot before and likely will be again. He took 2nd for over $75k in the $500k Guaranteed, beating out bdubs3737(6th) and chulapro(7th) for the win. Thugmoneymkr, fresh off a top 100 finish in the WSOP Main Event, took 2nd in the Sunday Mulligan. Buckohfivetook 6th in that event.
