Sunday Briefing: Double Win for Jonathan Gill
Gill topped a field of 435-entrants in the partypoker Powerfest Event 7, a $55 no-limit hold’em rebuy tournament, which netted him $10,801.61 before going on to take down the PokerStars $215 Bounty Builder for $17,560.37 and almost the same amount in bounties.
There could yet be another victory on the cards for Gill because he finds himself third in chips from 116 remaining players in the WCOOP edition of the Sunday Warm-Up that resumed this afternoon. Gill has locked up $1,319.12 but has a realistic chance of bagging the $192,390.80 first-place prize.
Also securing some decent scores at PokerStars on Sunday was “DuTTiFruTTi9” who won the Big $109 for $28,000 after a heads-up chop, while Andy “wiisssppppaa” Taylor collected $24,069.82 for his third-place finish in the Super-Sized Sunday, a tournament that “AnyTw0_Card$” finished fourth in for $17,643.13.
Rhys “floppinhel” Jones reached the final table of the Sunday Grand, falling in seventh-place for $11,467.05 with his friend Craig “mcc3991” McCorkell being the runner-up in the Big $215 for a $23,359.93 addition to his bankroll.
Towards the end of Sunday, Rick “ThEcLaiMEer” Trigg took down the Sunday Wrap-Up for $9,363.88 and “LittleLettuS” banked $11,269.16 for finishing in fourth-place in the Sunday Supersonic.
Over at 888poker, Mat “checktrap11” Cuthbertson came out on top of the $120,000 Whale tournament, beating 343 opponents on his way to collecting $37,608.66, with fellow Brits “f0rmeitsegal” and “buddychoc” finishing eighth and ninth in the same tournament for $4,664.64 and $3,401.30.
There was also a Union Jack at the final table of the $120,000 Mega Deep, one next to “cjcjcj16” who eventually fell in sixth-place, a finish worth $6,756.20, while “tr0p_f4cil3” saw their $40,000 Turbo Mega Deep end in a seventh-place finish for $1,855.
Completing the Sunday Briefing for another week is the third-place finish in the $20,000 Sunday Tornado by “ourstheglory” worth $3,446.50.
Another stellar weekend for our players, and with the Powerfest and WCOOP now in full swing, we have a feeling that there are going to be some massive scores over the next couple of weeks.
