The Sunday Briefing: "EireAbu" and Jonathan "jonyctt" Concepción Top Sunday Majors

Sunday Briefing

On a Sunday with many deals, the biggest of the Sunday Majors went to the wire without any agreements.

Entering the final table of the Sunday Million with the chip lead, "EireAbu" rode three eliminations to begin heads-up play with about a 1.25:1 chip lead against "WallterBish." While the latter did manage to grab the chip lead, "EireAbu" reclaimed it following an {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} flop. The chips got into the middle as "EireAbu's" {9-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} held against "WallterBish's" {A-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}.

The tournament ended the next hand as "WallterBish" three-bet shoved for about 19 big blinds with {K-Spades}{9-Clubs}. Holding {K-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts}, "EireAbu" called and locked up the victory once the board ran out {J-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}.

$200+$153,647$729,400

With no overwhelming chip leader at the start of the Sunday Warm-Up final table, Jonathan "jonyctt" Concepción emerged from the pack. Holding a roughly 2.6:1 chip lead to begin heads-up play, Concepción defeated "pp2wins" at the 200,000/400,000/40,000 level.

Concepción opened to 800,000 on the button, only to watch "pp2wins" three-bet to 2,400,000 from the big blind. Concepción's next move was a four-bet shove, which led to an all-in call from "pp2wins" holding {A-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}. With {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}, Concepción took it down when the board fell {9-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}.
