The Sunday Briefing: Richard Toth Final Tables The Sunday Million

Posted at 11:25 2012-08-02 by Mickey Doft

The Olympics weren't the only worldwide competition taking place over the weekend. On Sunday, online poker players from around the world entered their events as they do every week, and several notable players put up impressive showings. Winners included Richard Toth, Kevin "ImaLuckSac" MacPhee, Griffin "Flush_Entity" Benger, Jeff "jeff710" Hakim, and Carter "cswidler" Swidler. The biggest prize of the day went to "welshwizard9" for taking down the Sunday Million.

Among those who made deep runs in the Sunday Million were Jesper "KipsterDK" Hougaard (16th - $3,445.68) and Joseph "subiime" Cheong (20th - $2,879.60). If Hougaard running deep in the Sunday Million seems familiar, that's because he finished in 14th place last week. Team PokerStars Pro Richard Toth made a deep run, but his hopes for the Sunday Million victory ended when he five-bet jammed his stack with {A-Spades}{K-Clubs}. Unfortunately for him, "1jos2" also held {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades} while "welshwizard9" hel{J-Spades}{J-Hearts}. The pockets jacks held up, crippling Toth who busted the next hand. From there, "welshwizard9" went on to take it down.
