Aussies Online: BACIC Warms-Up a Big Monday

Posted at 17:16 2011-11-16

It was another big week on the grind for Australian online poker players, as results came from all directions. Not only were Aussie’s seen dominating the felt in the PokerStars Sunday Super Sonic, but a local player was also seen posting a big finish in the Sunday Warm-Up, while the likes of Brendon ‘BrendonR’ Rubie, Tim ‘TurnRiva’ Marsters and Tom ‘tollgate’ Grigg also had a solid week.

The Sunday Warm-Up is one of the biggest weekly tournaments available to grinders and there have been several big finishes in that event from many local players in the past. Now it is ‘BACIC’ who can be added to that list as he was seen weaving his way to the final table.

The $500,000 guarantee of the Sunday Warm-Up was easily reached on Monday morning as a giant 3,735-player field made for a $747,000 prize pool. While BACIC couldn’t manage a victory, a solid 6th place finish would be worth a very respectable $24,277.

PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up Results:
1st: heißtercamp - $117,279
2th: Macstribe - $87,399
3rd: vovkawow - $61,627.50
4th: theRIBBER83 - $42,952.50
5th: kangis - $31,747.50
6th: BACIC (Australia) - $24,277.50
7th: kinamon8 - $16,807.50
8th: KKoverhere - $9,337.50
9th: vladmit777 - $5,976

While it would be the biggest score this past Monday, perhaps the biggest story to come out of this week’s grind is that not one, but two Australian players were seen at the final table of the PokerStars Sunday Super Sonic.

By the time there were only 4 players left, it was looking a like a coin flip for a local player to take down the event, but it wasn’t meant to be as ‘iamnrg’ fell in 4th place as ‘Campbell-Gee’ hit the rail in 3rd place. The gallant effort for the local players saw prizes of $13,754 and $18,339 enter their accounts respectively. 

A 1st place finish over on Party Poker would be worth $8,608 for Brendon ‘BrendonR’ Rubie as he found a victory in the $20,000 Guaranteed Speed event.

Sal ‘ugritaly’ Fazzino fell just short of five-figures when he received $9,752 for his victory in the PokerStars Nightly Forty Grand over the weekend, while Tim ‘TurnRiva’ Marsters would best that score, taking in $10,225 for a 1st place finish in a $109 Rebuy event.

The PokerStars cubed events are ever-popular and it was Tom ‘tollgate’ Grigg who could be seen weaving his through a tough field in a $109 buy-in event late into the week. Grigg couldn’t manage a win, but a gallant 2nd place was still handy for a $10,121 score.

Earlier in the week it was all happening over on Titan Poker as a victory in the $30,000 Super Tuesday was good for $12,015 for Semesa ‘semesa’ Brown as he continues an impressive couple of months on the virtual felt.

Jay ‘SEABEAST’ Kinkade wouldn’t find the finish he was looking for in the Party Poker Sunday $200K, but his 7th place finish would still be worth $7,415 to continue a strong start to November.
