The Sunday Briefing: Billy "b8chatz" Chattaway Goes Back-to-Back in Sunday 2nd Chance

Sunday Briefing

Before many of online poker's top tournament talents made their way to the Bahamas for the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure this week, the year's first big Sunday of online tournament action took place across the major sites. Bringing in the New Year with a bang was Billy "b8chatz" Chattaway who won the PokerStars 2nd Chance for the second straight week!

Last week, Chattaway took down the 2nd Chance for $56,648, earning him the largest score of his online poker career. He added another $43,979 to his bankroll this week by winning the 2nd Chance again, an incredible accomplishment considering both tournaments had field of more than 1,200 players.

Other notables pocketing big paydays on Sunday were Stefan "random_chu" Chew, Mat “checktrap11” Cuthbertson, Steve "StevoL_7" Leonard and Phill "Grindation" Mcallister, who made the final table of the PokerSars Sunday Million.
