The Sunday Briefing: Adam "Roothlus" Levy Just Misses Sunday Warm-Up Final Table at PCA

Adam Levy

Even though many of online poker's finest are in the Bahamas for the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, some still managed to post impressive results on their Day 1 off day of the Main Event. Adam "Roothlus" Levy, for example, just missed the final table of the Sunday Warm-Up with an 11th-place finish. On Sunday, three players pocketed six figures and "shamandez" won the Sunday Million.

There was a lot of movement at the final table of the Sunday Million as a three-handed deal took place between three players who did not even start the final table in the top three in chips. Even when the deal was made, eventual champion "shamandez" began with the short stack before notching the victory.

David "dave798111" Allan, was the first player eliminated after the three-handed deal. He held {A-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} and was up against "shamandez" who held pocket sevens. A {7-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{10-Spades} board eliminated Allan, and gave "shamandez" a 2:1 chip lead to begin heads-up play. The chips got in after a flop of {A-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}. With {A-Clubs}{4-Spades}, "shamandez" trailed "Mackkapackka's" {A-Hearts}{10-Clubs}, however, a {4-Diamonds} river card locked up the victory for "shamandez."

Despite starting the final table of the Sunday Warm-Up second to last in chips with about 20 big blinds, "BAGBAGBAGBAG" made it to the final three thanks to some big pocket pairs that held up. A three-handed deal took place and despite being on the short end, "BAGBAGBAGBAG" came back and took it down.

First, with {A-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}, "BAGBAGBAGBAG" took down "NhFy" who held {A-Spades}{3-Clubs} after the board ran out with four diamonds to make a flush. To win, it took more than an hour, but "BAGBAGBAGBAG" prevailed against "crazylandd."
