Global Poker Kicks off 2019 with Sunday Major Winners

Global Poker welcomed in the New Year this weekend past with its Sunday Majors, both the Teaser and the Scrimmage drawing a mix of grinders and recreational players…with plenty of livestreams to choose from too.

First up was the afternoon Sunday Teaser, the SC$110 buy-in, SC$20k Guaranteed event seeing 203 entries of which 36 would be in the money. Players from all across the US brushed off the festive cobwebs, with Minnesota’s Thoeny making the first 4-figure cash of the year when he finished in 5th spot.

Pokerplayer79 emerged as the winner following a heads-up duel with Texan Jabroni Crusher, the North Carolina man walking off with SC$4141 for his close to 5-hour battle on the felt.

Next up was the Sunday Scrimmage, the evening ‘big brother’ of the Teaser and boasting a SC$50k guarantee for the SC$218 buy-in.

Again Global Poker saw 200+ runners chasing the money, with a SC$300 min. cash the first target.

The New York pair of Punte101 and Toasty1688 both made deep runs, the latter taking down SC$2850 for 5th place, but it was Virginian poker player HANDYMAN101 who proved too handy for the rest.

His pocket kings saw off Tennessee’s BucYeah on the final hand of play, a bumper SC$9650 top prize setting up a great start to 2019.
