PokerStars Sunday tournament results (8-29-10)

ps_news_thn.jpgSometimes you just don't know what to say first. On days when news breaks like crazy, it's always a big fight to decide what the lead story is. Instead of having an internal battle, here's there weekend results lead:

"With WCOOP just a few days away, PokerStars players hit the Sunday tournaments with all they had, including one Team PokerStars Pro Alex Gomes who had a big finish on the weekend--the same Alex Gomes who had a final table appearance at the PCA a couple of years ago, which happens to be the same tournament that was the focus of a major Mega Path final this weekend which granted 14 people prize packages to the 2011 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, five of whom got in for 100 Frequent Player Points or less, and one of whom invested only five FPP in the entire endeavor."

Two wordy? Yeah, we thought so, too.

But that stuff all happened. And more.

Last night marked the final Sunday of August, which meant the Battle of the Planets monthly final and the Turbo Takedown. What's more, all of these people won basically free seats to the PCA in the PCA Mega Path final (note one Jovial Gent, 2009 WCOOP main event champion): Chav, AceSpades11, LuckyLass, Percussion, LoneHixx, Jovial Gent, Le Colli, busto_soon, kube86, paskahousu7, Kispagat, naoussa, tombala85, Dafoulmouth.

As if that wasn't enough, we had all of this action going on:

  • Peetoon picks spots and prevails to capture 8/29 Sunday Million title

  • Sunday Warm-up: ShiFtYFiNGeR points straight to six figure win

  • Turbo Takedown: BigFlopper01 hits flops and pulls off big win

  • Battle of the Planets: vltara takes it all home, Van Fleet finishes fourth
  • All of that, and this guy finished second in the $215 Weekly 6-Max NLHE event.

    Now, take five or six days and a big breath, because next weekend is...WCOOP time.
