The Midweek Briefing: Patel, Anderson, Hudson, and Gonzalez Capture Weekly Majors 0001

Several online tournament regulars captured midweek major titles this week. They may not be the biggest names on the virtual felt, but they are certainly known and respected. The top prize of the week went to Hiren "hustla16" Patel, who won the Full Tilt Poker $1K Monday for $87,000. Calvin "cal42688" Anderson and Spencer "UH Big Tex" Hudson notched first-place finishes on PokerStars, winning the Super Tuesday and Wednesday 1/4 Million for $$80,022.30 and $54,000, respectively. The UB $150K GTD was taken down by Fabrizio "SIXTHSENSE19" Gonzalez for $41,605.
