John Duthie Runs Deep in the partypoker Sunday Majors!

partypokers big Sunday grind saw their own legendary John Duthie running deep in the $1million GTD Big Game, the partypoker LIVE presidents 6th spot and $44k proving he still has what it takes to compete with the online masters. It did not stop Hendon Mobster Barney Boatman having a friendly joke at his expense though…

Duthie didn’t quite grab bragging rights, however, as fellow partypoker guru Patrick ‘Patrick_Leonard’ Leonard managed to outlast the boss and walk off with $82k for his 4th place finish – and that wasn’t his only success of the day…

The Big Game attracted 211 entries at $5k apiece, meaning there was a little over the $1million guarantee, and it was ‘edgybrah’ who made the most of it with a $215k takedown, well-known Ukrainian online beats Roman Romanovsky also winning big under his ‘SanityWaterline’ moniker.

There was plenty of other action throughout the day, of course, the $200k Super Sunday High Roller seeing plenty of it, with Russian pro ‘aLiNeNok1617’ seeing of a trio of Canadians at the final table to scoop the $61,000 top prize in the $3k buy-in event.

The Bounty Hunter version of the Sunday High Roller, with a $512 buy-in, drew some 372 entries – the final table swinging the way of Austria’s ‘pendulum‘, whose $15k regular prizemoney was topped up by a staggering $19k in bounties!

The $100kGTD Main Event was next on the agenda for the big boys and girls of partypoker, and it was a very familiar name who took down the $20,727 top prize – Sweden’s Nikolas ‘Drulitooo’ Astedt.

Astedt is the number one online MTT player in the world, earning over $13million in total across all sites, his partypoker share approaching a cool $4.5million.

Last, but certainly not least, was the $150k GTD Sunday HR Bounty Hunter Fast version, a gross of entries (that’s 144!) ponying up $1020 apiece. It still took over 6 hours to decide the winner, and that turned out to be the aptly-named ‘bestindabiz51’, aka Sam Panzica.
