Sunday Poker Report 08/15: David Williams Shines with Second Chance Victory

0 0 votes

For many players, August 15 was a typical Sunday with its usual offerings of online poker tournaments, but Full Tilt Poker players found two of their longtime regulars - the Sunday Brawl and the $750K Guarantee - on hiatus for the second week in a row due to FTOPS XVII opportunities. It was the last day of the popular Full Tilt semi-annual series, and with several million dollars up for grabs in those FTOPS events, the two regulars took a rest again but are scheduled to return next week.

PokerStars boasted of its regular events this week, and stellar prize pools in several of the tournaments allowed players like Ansgar2000 to win more than $136K for the Sunday Warm-Up victory and blumenkind53 to grab more than $160K for the Sunday Million win. In fact, the top two finishers in the Warm-Up and top four in the Million all took home six-figure payouts. But the story of the week came in the wrap-up of the Sunday Second Chance event, where the winner was none other than Team PokerStars Pro David “dwilliams” Williams. In his first Sunday online as a team member, he won the Second Chance for almost $58K and made it clear that his sponsorship with the site was definitely a positive one.

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl
It was the second week running that the Full Tilt Online Poker Series prompted the removal of the Brawl from the regular Sunday lineup, as the opportunities available to FTOPS players were more enticing than the usual Sunday offering. But it was also the last day of the tournament series, meaning the Brawl was set to return next Sunday to its regular spot on the schedule.

$750,000 Guarantee
For the second week straight, the $750K Guarantee was put on hold to make room for players to compete in FTOPS XVII, as it was the final night of the series with several offerings including the Main Event. But fans of the big guarantee could count on its return to the usual time next week, after FTOPS becomes a memory and players get back to their regular Sunday schedules.
