Troopaloop10 Scoops Sunday Million
Last weekend’s batch of Sunday majors meant another life-changing weekend for several online players as they secured six-figure prizes on PokerStars and Full Tilt.
The biggest winner of the lot was unquestionably Stars player “Troopaloop10” who scooped a whopping $243,543 for finishing top of an 8,272 runner field packed with pros in this weekend’s Sunday Million.
However, despite the stellar line-up in attendance the event was something of a blank for the big names with only Eric “sheets” Haber and David Sands instantly recognisable among the in-the-money finishers.
It was much the same story over in Full Tilt’s $750k Guaranteed tournament, where “el Scheffe” finished atop a starting field of 3,903 to claim the $138,205 first prize ahead of runner-up “okoso”. That said, we did see one big name on the final table before the heads-up was contested as Joe Serock finished third for a tidy $54,642.
Meanwhile, fellow online pro Harrison “this is punny” Gimbel collected $88,107 after making a deal with “crisbus” heads-up in the Sunday Brawl to ensure that the weekend wasn’t a complete washout for the online grinders, with his opponent collecting $89,714 for being crowned the tournament’s official winner.
