The US-facing cardroom is deep into the 4th running of the enormously popular Grizzly Games series, and 347 entries appeared for the Sunday evening biggie, boosting the prizepool to SC69,400 and guaranteeing a five-figure payout up top.

First up, the field had to be whittled down to the 54 players in the money, picking up a useful min. cash of SC347, and then it was aiming for the final table.

Among the nine players who made it, Indiana’s “Hollarguy”, who as we will see had already landed a huge Grizzly Games score earlier in the day. This time round, 6th place and almost SC3,000 was the result, for an excellent day at the tables.

By the time they reached the podium placings, it was the trio of Michigan’s “NickHerald”, Virginian “AGpoker” and Arizona’s “Eichkoht” who were left in the hunt for a Grizzly Games trophy.

There could be only one winner, however, and that was “Eichkoht”, flopping trips and taking down the victory, a whopping SC13,283, the trophy and that exclusive Tournament of Champions spot

1 Eichkoht  SC13,283.16   
2 AGpoker  SC9,889.50   
3 NickHerald  SC7,287   
4 Under_the_neon  SC5,552   
5 JIRIKI  SC3,886.40

7 BurnU  SC2,255.50   
8 JuicyJC SC1,561.50   
9 Champ712 SC1,186.74

Earlier in the day, the Grizzly Games replacement for the Sunday Teaser dominated the schedule, with the SC25k guarantee easily smashed – 352 runners and SC35,200 in the final prizefund.

Again it was a multi-state final table, with players from Florida all the way to California showing their best poker on the US-facing site that boasts a unique real-money currency.

The Championship title came down to a heads-up battle between “JPMONTANA” and “Hollarguy”, and the latter prevailed to bag not only the trophy and ToC spot, but also the SC6,737 top prize, making it close to a 10k day for the Indiana player.
