It was another guarantee-busting Sunday at the Global Poker majors as more than 600 players battled for close to SC100k in the flagship Scrimmage and Teaser tournaments.

The US-facing site with the unique real-money Sweeps Coin currency has enjoyed a stellar last month or so, numbers up as players look to forget 2020 and start 2021 with a bang.

That desire brought 316 entries to the Sunday evening Scrimmage, the SC218 buy-in NLHE tournament producing a SC63,200 prizefund, well above the SC50k GTD and meaning a five-figure payday up top and 54 players ITM.

By the time the final table of nine had convened, everyone had locked up four-figures and a fierce battle commenced, big hands clashing as in this following race that saw ‘Coyspurs1010’ fall in 4th spot…

♥ ♦ ♠ ♣

Coyspurs1010: 3♦ 3♠
BeastyShem: A♠ J♦

Flop: A♣ 5♠ 2♣
Turn: 6♦
River: A♥

Winning a tournament always requires a spot of good fortune at the right time, and for Teamcharlie that landed on the river as an unlikely runner, runner straight appeared to end Ocho1288s run in 3rd, a still-excellent SC6,636 for the Illinois player.

♥ ♦ ♠ ♣

Teamcharlie: 9♦ 9♥
Ocho1288: Q♥ Q♠

Flop: J♠ 7♦ 2♠
Turn: 8♦
River: 10♦

That left us heads-up between New Jersey’s ‘TeamCharlie’ and California’s ‘BeastyShem’ and this time the race to the title was won by the small pocket pair.

1 Teamcharlie  SC12,096.48   
2 BeastyShem  SC9,006   
3 Ocho1288  SC6,636   
4 Coyspurs1010  SC5,056   
5 PJ9  SC3,539.20   
6 Fesuoy  SC2,686   
7 Radiohead_03  SC2,054
8 Ediddy88  SC1,422   
9 Trynewthings87  SC1,080.72


Earlier in the day, the Sunday Teaser had done exactly that, tempting in 297 runners to chase an SC29,700 prizepool, and the heads-up showdown for top honours saw ‘WowLucky’ just losing out to ‘JoeBeagles’.

That meant the Teaser title and SC5,732 was on its way to California, while the runner-up from Massachusetts pocketed SC4,306 for an excellent effort.

1 JoeBeagles  SC5,732.10   
2 WowLucky  SC4,306.50   
3 Fesuoy  SC3,267   
4 IBallz  SC2,450.25   
5 Burnzie57  SC1,692.90   
6 CaroleBashkin  SC1,306.80   
7 Odell Bettem Jr SC1,009.80   
8 MEKOKO  SC712.80   
9 Jnort  SC534.60
