    U.S.PLAYERS HELP PRODUCE ANOTHER GOOD WEEKEND OF ONLINE POKER


    Even with major tourneys running contemporaneously, the attendance numbers were good


    Full Tilt Poker's major Full Tilt Online Poker Series II tournament (see previous InfoPowa reports) must have impacted the promotions of other sites this past weekend, but attendances were still remarkably good for the regular competitions held by the major players who still accept American business.

    Poker Stars' Sunday Million still drew one of its biggest fields with a starter field of 6 733 players on hand, and another giant prize pool of $1 346 600, among the largest in Sunday million history. 975 poker players were 'in the money' and the scheduled first prize was $188 524, when players sat down at the final table, led by '98club' and 'jeppg1111' , each holding around $12 million in chips. But, illustrating that a big stack does not guarantee ultimate individual victory, at the end of a thriller of a game it was a three way split on the final top three players, Tiger76 on $133 653; MxdMeta4 on $103 653 and only in third position jeppg1111 on $103 653.

    In the Ultimate Bet $200,000 Guaranteed there were still 910 players raring to go despite the abundance of big money tourneys elsewhere. The resulting small overlay meant the standard payout structure was in place, with 100 players cashing and $45 000 the prize for first. Longhorn757 took the top prize, with drbob0008 in the number two slot on $26 000.

    Over at Party Poker the Sunday $200 000 guaranteed competition seems to have stabilised after the departure of US contenders at a starting field in the 900 range, with 938 entrants in this week's offering. The final heads up was between aplunk and davidross and ended in a deal which guaranteed $35 000 for each and left $3 000 to play for. After pulling well ahead, aplunk hit river-river spades to fill an unlikely flush, overtake davidross's pocket tens, and finish off the win.
