Weekend review: talonchick wins...on a boat

So, a great many thousands of you sat down over the weekend to compete in one or more of PokerStars' weekend majors. But, how many of you won? Okay, yes, there were a lot of you.

But how many of you won with a view like this?


Okay, I'll admit, that's not the best view. Here's a better idea of what was happening. It's PokerStars Team Online's Adrienne "talonchick" Rowsome. Swimming. During a tournament break.

See, if there was ever a benefit of PokerStars Mobile, this was it. Rowsome won the Women's Sunday tournament this weekend while playing from a boat.

Seriously. She grabbed her phone and went out for a day on the lake while keeping tabs on the tournament. You can read her take on it on her blog.

Yep, there were a lot of good stories from the weekend, but none as good as that.

That said, we did our best:

  • Team Online's Adrienne "talonchick" Rowsome wins the Women's Sunday
  • Sunday Million: jony_lv goes wire-to-wire, wins $180k
  • Sunday Warm-Up: Return trip successful, RibyJl9R wins $96K
  • Battle of the Planets: Numero Uno, Mikel Unanue wins $12K and August freeroll title
  • For a look at all the big winners (on a boat and not) from the weekend, see the 8-25-13 PokerStars weekend majors final table list.

    As you plan for the coming week, remember there is only a week left of VIP Club Month and WCOOP is now less than two weeks away!
