Michael DellaBarca, Keith Donovan, Yong Kwon and Andrew Glauberg dominated NJ tournaments on Sunday.
Michael "mdb77" DellaBarca was the biggest winner on the third Sunday of 2017 on New Jersey's regulated online poker network after taking down the WSOP.com NJ/888poker NJ $50,000 Ultimate Warrior for $13,500 against a final table packed with well-known online grinders Salvadore "Doctor_Duke" Cataldo (second - $7,875), Joseph "joey1way" Fortuna (fourth - $3,500), Jason "LuckDuck" Lawhun (fifth -$3,000), Joseph "megolaman1ac" Liberta (sixth - $2,500) and Jack "Jaybone" King (seventh - $1,900).
DellaBarca's win not only represented the biggest single haul of the weekend but also by far the biggest of his online career according to his PocketFives profile. His now second biggest score came when he took sixth place in the PokerStars NJ City Tour 10 - Atlantic City - MAIN EVENT: $400 NL Hold'em, $50,000 Gtd for $3,862 in July 2016.
Meanwhile, former top dog in the PocketFives New Jersey Rankings Keith Donovan had a strong weekend despite not notching a win thanks to a trio of scores in big tournaments. His biggest score came in the PokerStars NJ Sunday High Roller [6-Max], $15,000 Gtd, where he took second place for $5,330. Additionally, Donovan snagged third place in the partypoker NJ/BorgataPoker.com Sunday $40K gtd for $4,389 and took fourth place in the partypoker NJ/BorgataPoker.com Daily $10K for $998.
Another former top-ranked player in the PocketFives New Jersey Rankings Yong Kwon also patched together a big Sunday with four final table finishes in online tournaments with at least a $10,000 prize pool headlined by a win in the WSOP.com NJ/888poker NJ $10,000 Warriors’ Opening Strike for $3,489.
Andrew Glauberg, who was also a No. 1 ranked player in New Jersey, padded his bankroll on Sunday with a third-place finish in the PokerStars NJ Sunday Special, $50,000 Gtd for $5,864, a runner-up finish in the PokerStars NJ Nightly Stars $100, $12,000 Gtd for $2,504 and a fourth-place finish in the $10,000 Warriors’ Opening Strike for $898.
