LuckBoxLuke and 0tello Take Down the Global Poker Sunday Majors

Having a cool poker nickname may not guarantee you victory, but it seems to have helped New Yorker LuckboxLuke as he took down the Global Poker Sunday Teaser, kicking off the Sunday Majors in style…

The traditional big grind Sunday on the US-facing site has seen the numbers creep up steadily since the start of the year, 238 runners in the SC$20k guaranteed Teaser producing a SC$23,800 prizefund, almost SC$5000 of that going to LuckBoxLuke as he downed fellow New York player Slushpuppie88 heads-up for the win.

With 36 players making at least a SC$78.50 min cash from the SC$110 buy-in tournament, the final table had a distinctly East Coast feel to it, although Nevada’s Ryan ‘protential’ Laplante did sneak in to break up the cosy affair by snatching 5th spot.

Fans of Stickwork were able to watch him fight his way to 6th spot and a SC$1k cash on his TwitchTV channel, the increasingly popular Global Poker streams as good a way as any of checking out the site – aside from actually playing of course!

Sunday Teaser SC$20,000 Guaranteed

1 LuckboxLuke SC$4,855.20
2 Slushpuppie88 SC$3,570.00
3 Smacchamps2015 SC$2,689.40
4 Ken603 SC$2,023.00
5 Protential SC$1,380.40
6 Stickwork SC$1,071.00
7 J1l2p3 SC$833.00
8 Es122685 SC$595.00
9 SkimMilk SC$464.10

The Teaser, as always, is followed by the Sunday Scrimmage, the SC$218 buy-in flagship Sunday Major, and this week saw SC$58,000 up for grabs as 290 entries produced a chunk of extra money in the SC$50k guaranteed tournament.

This time the east coasters failed to follow up on their Teaser success as a mixed bunch of grinders and recs fought their way deep into the money.

After almost 6 hours of play it was Colorado’s 0tello who emerged triumphant, scooping the SC$11,194 top prize ahead of California’s Mrtrc266 who would still walk off with an excellent SC$8410 for his efforts.

The popularity of the Global Poker Sunday Majors should soon see the numbers rise above the 300 mark as word gets around that there’s gold to be found in them there hills!
