Sunday Briefing


  • Jonathan Gill of the UK wins two Sunday Majors on September 4, 2016.

  • Sebastian "p0cket00" Sikorski takes down the PokerStars Sunday grand for almost $65,000.

The majority of online poker tournaments players would be more than happy with winning a Sunday major, boosting their bankroll and gaining kudos in equal measure. So imagine how the United Kingdom’s Jonathan Gill is feeling right now because he won not one, but two major tournaments online on Sunday.

Gill finished on top of a 435-strong field in the partypoker $55 no-limit hold’em rebuy Powerfest event in the early hours of Monday morning to book a $10,801.61 win. He then went on to win the PokerStars $215 Bounty Builder for $17,560.37 and an additional $15,500 in bounty payments.

Not content with crushing those two tournaments, Gill also made it through to Day 2 of the $215 Sunday Warm-Up WCOOP edition where he ended the night third from the remaining 116 players, and in with a legitimate shot of the $192,390.80 first place prize.
