The Sunday Briefing: Chris Brammer Among Sunday's Winners

Chris Brammer

Another very profitable Sunday has passed for several players on the virtual felt. Six players pocketed over $100,000 on Sunday, with the biggest win belonging to Benjamin "janfryed" Garcia for a third-place finish in the Sunday Million following a deal. Meanwhile, Chris Brammer added to his already ridiculous online résumé with a win in the $109 Sunday Rebuy.

A six-handed deal in the Sunday Million meant six-figure scores all around. Benjamin "janfryed" Garcia was the chip leader at the time and earned the biggest prize of the day but ultimately finished in third place. "Guesty001" bested Orjan "Aftret" Skommo for the title after the latter made a final stand with {8-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}. Holding {A-Hearts}{4-Spades}, "Guesty001" looked Skommo up and his hand held through the {K-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{3-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{9-Clubs} board to seal the deal.
