Lone Star Poker Series

Sunday Briefing: Victories for Nemeth and Pateychuk

Andras Nemeth

Andras “probirs” Nemeth and Andrey “ThePateychuk” Pateychuk were just two superstars who helped themselves to a top prize of a Sunday Major at PokerStars this weekend.

Both players are no strangers to final tables of tournaments, especially in high stakes games where the pair seem to excel.

Nemeth’s victory came in the $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up, a tournament that attracted a compact field of 62 entries. This resulted in the top nine finishers sharing the $62,000 prize pool.

Christian “WATnlos” Rudolph fell in 10th place to set the final table and burst the money bubble at the same time. This paved the way for the likes of Torben “Tralllle” Soerensen, “P0KERPR02.0” and Andrey “Anjeyyy” Novak to see a return in their investment.

Jans “Graftekkel” Arends fired three bullets at this event and the final once saw him eventually finish sixth for $3,936. “Remi_Lebo_10”, and “Sintoras” crashed out before Viktor “papan9_p$” Ustimov saw his tournament end abruptly in third-place, a finish worth $9,379.

Heads-up pitted together two legends of the game. Nemeth locked horns with Niklas “Lena900” Astedt and the pair struck a deal to flatten the payouts. This meant Astedt got his hands on $15,485 when he busted in second place, which was more than the $13,777 Nemeth collected.

Pateychuk’s victory came in the $215 Sunday Warm-Up and saw him outlast 634-opponents on his way to turning $215 into $22,035.

The Russian found himself heads-up against Brazil’s “4FKvothe” for the lion’s share of the prize pool. Pateychuk, a former World Poker Tour champion, got the job done and bushed his Brazilian opponent aside. Second-place weighed in at $15,990 while third-place finisher “LOBAXHiNO” of Argentina won $11,604, the only other five-figure score of the competition.

Daniel Neilson Wins the partypoker Big Game

Some 469 players turned out for this week’s partypoker Big Game, meaning the $200,000 guarantee was beaten by $24,650. Sixty-four of those started received a slice of the pie, with a min-cash weighing in at $1,123.

This sum increased to $4,257 by the time the eight-handed final table was set. The top five finishers each secured a five-figure score for their efforts.

Jeremy Saderne fell in fifth and collected $10,199 with David Stephenson’s fourth-place exit being worth $14,377. Brazil’s Marllon Pinto banked $20,472 when he crashed out in third, which left Daniel Neilson and Viktor Ustimov to butt heads for the lion’s share of the prize pool.

The heads-up battle went Neilson’s way and he scooped an impressive $41,858. Ustimov padded his bankroll with a $29,854 consolation prize.

The $55 buy-in Gladiator was one of the biggest partypoker tournaments this weekend thanks to 2,288 players buying in and creating a $120,120 prize pool, which is very impressive for a mid-stakes event.

“benatto” was the last player standing from this ample field and victory was worth $7,110 from the main prize pool plus an additional $3,704 worth of bounty payments. This combined score of $10,814 for a $55 entry is a great result.

Runner-up “Hustle10” almost banked a $10,000 score thanks to a $7,097 second-place prize that was bolstered with $2,672 from the bounty prize pool.
