SWEDEN’S “42ayay” WINS THE MILLY FOR $91K
This weekend saw a big batch of Sunday Majors, including the Sunday Million, converted to a Progressive KO format for what we called “Knockout Sunday.” The biggest prize (as usual) was in the Sunday Million, where an enormous field of 12,790 players combined for a $1.279 million prize pool.
After a touch over 15 hours of play, Sweden’s “42ayay” locked up the $63,416 top prize plus another $28,055 in bounties. Romania’s The39player, the only other player to grab five figures’ worth of KO prizes, finished in second for $46,015 with another $10,652 in bounties.
ANOTHER WEEKEND, ANOTHER BOUNTY BUILDER WIN FOR “€urop€an”
Last weekend was big for Finland’s Samuel “€urop€an” Vousden as he made four final table appearances and took down two titles. This week he only appeared at one final table, but he made it count.
“€urop€an” had to fire two bullets to get there but he took down the title in the Sunday $530 Bounty Builder HR. (One of his two wins last weekend was a daily High Roller Club Bounty Builder tourney.) Between the top prize and bounties, “€urop€an” bagged a total of $88,679.
“elmerixx” WINS $2,100 SUNDAY HR TITLE, 3RD IN SUNDAY 500
While “€urop€an” was dominating the Bounty Builder on Sunday, another player from Finland grabbed the biggest freezeout prize of the weekend in the $2,100 Sunday HR.
Past Super Tuesday champ Tomi “elmerixx” Brouk topped the 1,142-player field and earned $63,707 for the win. And then for good measure, “elmerixx” went on to take third in the Sunday 500, winning another $18,810.
TWO BIG SCORES FOR “Tomatee”
Also of note this weekend was a strong pair of runs by SCOOP 2018 champ Francisco “Tomatee” Benitez — who, interestingly enough, was the runner-up to “elmerixx” when the latter won his Super Tuesday title in 2017.
For finishing in third place, “Tomatee” earned $24,959 plus $3,240 in bounties in the $2,100 Sunday HR. “Tomatee” then followed that up by winning the High Roller Club $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up for another $56,499.
