Aussies Online: Big Christmas Gifts for Dodds and Broom
Posted at 18:17 2010-12-21
You'd think that given that it's only four days until Christmas and the extremely busy live poker schedule this year, the Aussie poker faithful would be looking to take a much-needed break. Nope. Time is money, as they say, and there was plenty of it to be made online once again during the Sunday Majors, with James “Jabba” Broom, Joel “Strong Play” Dodds and Tim “weygang” English amongst those to have scored big yesterday.
Broom's big result on Sunday was courtesy on being on the right end of a five-way deal on the final table of the $215 Sunday Warm-Up on PokerStars. Despite finishing fifth out of 4732 players (which in itself is an incredible achievement), the 2008 Melbourne Poker Championship Main Event winner took home a massive US$109,260.08.
Meanwhile, Dodds worked his way through a field of 1202 players to come out on top in the PartyPoker $250,000 Guaranteed event to pocket US$52,500. It's been another good year for “Strong Play” who made deep runs in this year's Aussie Millions Main Event and the Macau Poker Cup Championship and also picked up an impressive US$136,222 for his second-place finish in the $2,000 No Limit Hold'em event at the 2010 Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza in Las Vegas.
Tim “weygang” English also scored a fifth-place finish yesterday, taking home US$6,468 for his result in the Party Poker $100,000 Guaranteed High Roller event, as well as a further $1,627 after recording a 167th place result in the PokerStars $162 Sunday Warm-Up event. Ben Delaney also managed to pick up an eighth-place finish in the Full Tilt $150,000 Guaranteed event, good for $4,396.
All in all, another great week for the Aussies online. We should also mention Team PokerStars Pro Celina Lin who picked up a 4th place finish in the Wednesday Quarter Million on PokerStars which was good for a US$21,793 score.
