Sunday Majors: Mat Cutherbertson Chops The Sunday Brawl

Sunday Majors results

The Full Tilt Poker Sunday Brawl is a tournament that British and Irish players seem to do well in. In 2013, Jude Ainsworth and Ben Spraggons each finished second in it, while Jareth East and Martin Malone both managed to win it. This Sunday, Mat “checktrap11” Cuthbertson did a mixture of those results and chopped heads-up with Brazilian “GM_VALTER.”

Cutherbertson was one of 1,191 entries in this week’s Full Tilt Poker Sunday Brawl, a large field that helped best the $200,000 guarantee by some $38,200. Cutherbertson battled his way through the bounty tournament, no doubt claiming several $40s for knocking out an opponent as he did so. He found himself sharing a final table with fellow Brit “LederJoe” and we were rooting for a British 1-2, but LederJoe fell in fourth place for $16,912.20 prize, which left Cuthbertson as the sole Union Jack flying player.

At around 01:15 on Monday morning, although 10 hours after The Sunday Brawl began, Cutherbertson and GM_VALTER discussed a deal that saw our hero have $37,732.89 added to his Full Tilt Poker account and GM_VALTER take $41,635.35. Top work, sir.

Cuthbertson spoke to UK & Ireland PokerNews in April 2013. Find out more about the part-time poker player here.

CunningPlan Wins TCOOP Event #15; Takes Home $73k

The Turbo Championship Of Online Poker (TCOOP) is in full swing at PokerStars and its huge prize pools have created some, quite frankly, ridiculous hourly rates for its champions. One such astronomical hourly went to “CunningPlan” who chopped Event #15 – the $215 buy-in No Limit Hold’em 6-Max Hyper-Turbo three-ways for $73,006.26 before going on to win. That impressive result banked CunningPlan an astonishing $33,799.19 per hour! What a life!

Magnus “Giffordonian” Martin had a similarly sized score – one topping the scales at $65,760.75 – when he finished 3/4123 in TCOOP Event #17, which was a $109 NL Hold’em Turbo with 1R1A.
