Sunday Briefing: Marty7 Wins the Sunday Rebuy
The combination of the 2015 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event kicking off and the blazing hot weather across the UK & Ireland resulted in a much lower turnout in the online Sunday Majors across all of the biggest sites.
Although a number of the fields were reduced in size, some of our players managed to lock up significant scores, with the largest of the night finding its way into the PokerStars account of “marty7.”
Last week, Ben “jenbizzle” Jones won the Sunday Rebuy and PokerStars and this week it was “marty7” who emerged victorious in the same event. After outlasting 608 opponents, marty7 walked away with $33,075.
