Tennessee player Squirrel22 scooped the biggest prize of the weekend on Global Poker, bagging the Big Bird edition of the Sunday Scrimmage for an SC12,708 payday.

The unique US-facing site’s Sunday Scrimmage and Teaser tournaments both exceeded their guaranteed prizepools, the Big Bird Scrimmage seeing SC66,400 up for grabs as 332 entries appeared.

The field included players from across the fifty states, with the final table having two each from as far afield as California and New York, with Texas, Tennessee, Florida, New Jersey and North Carolina chasing the five-figure top prize…

‘Fire_Island’ just missed out on a podium spot, falling in 4th for an SC5,312 payday – Global Poker’s innovative currency system meaning that players can cash out their SC (Sweeps Coins) for real money.

‘HiLetsPlay’ finished 3rd for SC6,972 and that left ‘Squirrel22’ and ‘RunMo0seRun’ to battle it out heads-up for first. The Tennessee player had finished runner-up the previous week, but managed to reverse that result to bag the top prize of SC12,708, with the Texan GP fan pocketing SC9,462 for a well-earned 2nd spot.
