Poker Tournament » Online Poker Tournaments »


Wednesday, July 30, 2008 | Alan Merriman


The weekend turned out to be a good one for the players who decided attend some of the weekly online poker tournaments. The attendance dropped a bit at all three tourneys, but based on last week’s crowd it was still a good turnout, and everyone was happy. Poker Stars brought in a total of 8370 participants while Bodog pulled in 720 and Full Tilt took in a total of 4057 entrants. Poker Stars had a four way chop between its final four players and the winner was able to take home a total of $138,101. Things at Full Tilt went smoothly without any glitches and Bodog gave out its usual overlay which was more than the first place winner’s prize.

Poker Stars Sunday Million

With a smaller attendance this week the Poker Stars Sunday Million still managed to get some good poker action and even secured a four way chop from its final four – which is not as common as the usual three-way chop. This week saw 8,370 entrants who played for a prize pool of $1,674,000. This worked out to an average take-home prize of $200,000 for the first place winner.

However, avkid86, strahhh25, pokerbrat13 and Gambooooool who were the final four decided to play it on the safe side and went in for a four way chop, leaving all the four with six figure payouts. Pokerbrat13 was the chips leader and took home almost as much as the first place winner. Eventually, it was avkid86 who turned out to be the luckier of the set and he raked in the grand prize of $138,101.

The final results:

  • **avkid86 — $138,101
  • **strahhh25 — $118,193
  • **pokerbrat13 — $138,078
  • **Gambooooool — $113,017
  • tonijeromi — $58,590
  • dapoopta — $41,850
  • Jimboski30 — $29,295
  • gio_piso — $19,251
  • DonC33 — $11,718

** Payout was a four-way deal that was made at the final table and $30,000 left was for the first-place winner as per the rules.

Full Tilt $750,000 Guaranteed

The Full Tilt $750,000-guaranteed tourney dropped in player traffic this week with 4,057 participants and a $811,400 prize pool. This left a sum of $143,285 for the eventual winner, making Full Tilt’s tournament winner, the biggest weekend winner of all.

The final results:

  • syzygy-1-1-1-1 — $143,285
  • govshark2 — $86,739
  • Babooyah — $56,798
  • blizair — $44,627
  • thekellster89 — $33,511
  • Brundaddy — $24,829
  • IndianRope — $18,662
  • Capax Infiniti — $14,605
  • EricaSchoenberg — $10,873

Bodog $100,000 Guaranteed

Bodog pulled in 720 entrants, which was not enough to fill the pot and make the guarantee, so Bodog had to chalk out a more than generous overlay of $28,000 – which was even more than the first place win of $23,600. Players at Bodog got more than their money’s worth this weekend as it seemed that they were playing a $139 buy-in tournament for $100.

The final results:

  • skeptix — $23,600
  • flitzflitz — $13,600
  • theman94 — $9,100
  • No Mans Land — $7,000
  • swimjack — $5,700
  • farmslicer7 — $4,500
  • wybm — $3,300
  • Rataveli — $2,200
  • TheHesse — $1,300
