Aussies Too Good on PokerStars

Posted at 00:25 2011-12-29

If players are wanting to partake in big field poker tournaments which feature huge prize pools on a weekly basis, then there is no other site like PokerStars. Every single week Australian online poker players take to the felt in the largest regular tournaments on the internet and this past Monday was no different.
While there are usually at least a few nice results posted by local players, this week was a little different as a total of three Australian players were seen taking down big finishes in major tournaments on PokerStars.

The first player to finish with a big score was "tomitomsen22" as they made their way to the final table of the Sunday Warm-Up. The earliest of the 'Sunday Majors', a big finish in the Sunday Warm-Up is a great to start to the week and that's exactly what tomitomsen22 did as a huge 3rd place finish sent $45,360 downunder.

The Sunday 2nd Chance is on the opposite end of the scale when it comes to the majors as it is the book-end to the Monday morning grind.

This time it was Australia's "Talerric" who would prove too good for a huge field as they weaved their way to the final table of the 2nd Chance. Eventually the player would succumb to the rail in 3rd place, picking up $21,456 for their big effort.

The Bigger $162 sees a tough field take to the felt in the weekly version of the popular nightly tournament. One of those players in the field was the local "soso8088" and they fought tough to end up making it to heads-up play.

Once the deal was decided, soso8088 had secured themselves a handy $28,305 while the final opponent would be too strong, offiicially sending the Aussie home in 2nd place.
