Sunday Briefing


  • Bertie "bigstealer" Bayley was one of the big winners this weekend thanks to winning the Sunday Supersonic.

One of the weekly tournaments that every online poker player wants to win is the Sunday Supersonic at PokerStars. The tournament’s hyper-turbo structure means that it usually takes around two hours to complete, which massively improves any winner’s hourly rate.

This week’s Sunday Supersonic attracted 966 players and took 2.62 hours from start to finish, and when it ended it was the United Kingdom’s Bertie “bigstealer” Bayley who was the last player standing, a finish worth $30,961.47 after a heads-up chop with Australia’s Daniel “ShippityShip Nielson.”

Another British player in the winner’s circle was “Ahhh Is It?” who took down the $215 Bounty Builder for $13,080.91. On their table were “SonOfBadger” and Paul “Fold Machiii” Dando who finished fifth and sixth for scores of $4,136.47 and $3,101.91.

Dando also finished fifth in the Big $162 for $1,370.87, and SonOfBadger finished seventh in the Hot $109 for $2,706.54.

Over in the Sunday Warm-Up, “youradobber” finished seventh for $8,667, while “crip17” and Jonathan “Gil3000” Gill bust from the Big $109 in eighth and ninth place for scores of $2,640.58 and $1,943.77.

The unpronounceable “hdjgkfkgsdl” helped themselves to the $23,322.88 runner-up prize in the Super-Sized Sunday, with “123454321888” falling in third-place in the $109 Bounty Builder for a $7,703.22 addition to their bankroll.

Two British players reached the final table of the Sunday Grand, namely Luke “lb6121” Schwartz in seventh-place for $8,806.00 and “EkkoMid” in fourth-place for $21,367.50.

Across at 888poker, “plizmuck” finished eighth in the $100,000 Mega Deep for $2,758.50, one place before “OMG_PorFavour” who collected $3,984.50.
