The Sunday Briefing: 'V_ELIMINATOR' Final-Tables Both Partypoker Majors
Another Sunday has passed and, for the second week of 2015, Canadian players did not take their foot off the gas. The top Canadian cash of the week came from ‘mistakooll’ who shipped the largest portion of the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up after a heads-up chop gave him $89,298 and the title.
Sunday Majors on Full Tilt
In the first major of the day on Full Tilt, ‘bird42042’ took home The Sunday Brawl title for $24,352. The final table of The Sunday Major saw a couple of Canadian flags flying. ‘Sumdumjer’ had the best finish, earning $18,665 for third, and Mike ‘SirWatts’ Watson placed seventh for $5,328. MiniFTOPS rolled on and there were four representatives at the final table in Event #16 playing from Canada. Kevin ‘Wu_Wizard’ MacPhee (third — $12,560), ‘samosaking’ (fifth — $6,931), ‘BBCgiants’ (seventh — $3,253), and ‘xs1’ (ninth — $1,555) all added large chunks to the bankroll from a $33 buy-in. The final major of the week on Full Tilt was the Super Sized Sunday which saw another handful of players repping Canada at the final table. ‘whereisdonny’ (second — $15,984), ‘imper1um’ (fourth — $9,102), and Kevin ‘Wu_Wizard’ MacPhee (seventh — $3,300) all scored large portions of the prize pool.

In the rest of the Sunday lineup on PokerStars, ‘SSSMBRFC2/C’ got the day rolling to a great start with a sixth-place score in the Sunday Kickoff for $6,225. We didn't see a Canadian reach the final table of the Sunday Million, but Russell ‘rdcrsn’ Carson went the deepest busting in the thirteenth spot for $5,996. The PokerStars Sunday 2nd Chance is one of the last features of the day, and ‘Athanasios 9’ took the opportunity to save the day by finishing fourth for $18,389. ‘IwiNyallLo$e’ chopped the Sunday Supersonic for $39,874, with Carter ‘cswidler’ Swidler busting in fourth place for $21,881.
