The Sunday Briefing: Andriy "imperior" Pavlyuk Takes Top Sunday Prize

online poker

As was the case last week, numbers in the Sunday online majors after Black Friday were down from what we have been accustomed to. Nevertheless, nine players added six figures to their bankrolls this weekend. The biggest went to Andriy "imperior" Pavlyuk, earning $205,500 for his win in Full Tilt Poker's FTOPS XX Event #24. The PokerStars Sunday Million was won by "VanDerPelto" for $131,000. A deal made heads-up with Peter "Belabacsi" Traply, though, left Traply with the biggest payday on PokerStars - $156,000.

    Just my 2 cents . I dont think it was a good idea to have Phil Galfonds TWO penthouses connected by a slide article in yahoo. Its liek this wouldyou rather have the government or some snitch for the government know you have the good life or not. Would you rather drive a sports car free and clear . Or have the government know you bought tat sports car by online poker. Just saying . If the government knows you can buy soething expensive without digging trenches or working a 9-5 for 10 bucks an hour dont you think government will investigate?
