There was a bumper turnout for the flagship Sunday evening tournament on the US-facing site with the unique Sweeps Coin and Gold Coins currency.

The prospect of a big real money win just before Christmas attracted 303 entries at SC218 per head, meaning the SC50k guarantee was easily surpassed, some SC60,600 in the prizepool.

By the time the final table came around, the remaining nine players had sewn up 4-figure scores, Montana’s ‘Calico12’ hitting the rails with the first of them when he paired his ace on the turn but ran into  Soggyblotter’s straight.

The Oregon player went on to secure 4th spot and SC4,848, and when Massachusetts’ ‘Beisbol16’ fell in 3rd for SC6,363 it was heads-up for a festive Scrimmage title – and you can see in the tweet below how things went!

Earlier in the afternoon there was the no small matter of the weekly Sunday Teaser, the SC25k seeing an extra SC3,000 added when 280 entries appeared.

Forty-five players were in the money, but the battle for the SC5k top prize and the Teaser title came down to a heads-up slugfest between Illinois’ ‘1 Emoney 1’ and New Jersey player ‘Cartermac’.

The latter won out, scooping the SC5,404 first prize and Christmas bragging rights, while the runner-up still took home a very sweet SC4,060 present.
