Sunday Briefing

The latest Sunday grind featured a recent World Series of Poker (WSOP) final-tablist earn a big victory and several players in Canada walk away with big scores.

The 2014 WSOP Main Event runner-up, Jorryt van Hoof, booked a big win in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up, adding $91,814 to his already stellar year. Canadian pro Griffin 'Flush_Entity' Benger was eliminated in seventh place earning, $13,450.

The Canadian stars also shined in the Sunday 2nd Chance; Ryan 'ryanghall' Hall scooped the top prize of $42,588. Fellow Canadian Danny 'DannyN13' Noseworthy nurtured a short stack into a top-three finish, busting third for $22,713.

We had a chat with Noseworthy after the tournament finished. The Atlantic-Canadian had this to say:

“I was 14/14 [and] super card dead with six big blinds, then doubled with A-6 suited to the button's king-x. Managed to continue grinding to [the] final table with 11 big blinds. I was 8/9 coming into the final table. I reshipped ace-queen and the guy behind called with nines. I won the flip. Kept grinding and laddering. I was super patient the whole tournament, just looking for really good spots. Managed to cooler 'batelrob' with kings vs his queens to finally have a shot. I think it was five- or six-handed. Then was about to be heads up, but 'batelrob' cracked aces with ace of clubs all in preflop with nine-eight of clubs. Flop was ace-x-x, two clubs, haha, so sick. Then busted blind-vs-blind to 'ryanghall', king-queen vs his ace-seven.”

Hall wasn’t the only Canadian to pick up a win on PokerStars. 'Wivil' chopped the Sunday Supersonic heads-up for $46,650. Canadian comrade 'bluesuck' busted in fourth for $21,370.

Sunday was also the last day of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) XXVII. There were two players in Canada who made the final table of the $635 Main Event. 'ftpballerstatus' had the top finish, earning $56,190 for a fifth-place finish. 'Zachattack1327' busted just previous in sixth for $41,347.
