Richard QuietLion Brodie Scoops the Sunday Teaser on Global Poker

The Global Poker flagship Sunday grind saw a familiar face among the big winners yesterday, Richard QuietLion Brodie taking down the Sunday Teaser for SC$5100 – and he is a man who millions across the world are connected to without ever knowing why!

The reason? Brodie is the original author of Microsoft Word, in at the very start as employee #7 at Microsoft back in the day! Global Poker fans, however, know him better for his Eagle Cup Tournament of Champions victory last year.

Yesterday Richard was one of 233 runners chasing a share of the SC$25k guarantee on the US-facing site’s afternoon warm-up, the SC$110 buy-in Sunday Teaser.

With the top 36 all securing a min. cash of SC$187.50 it was a tough five-hour battle to decide a winner, but eventually the Quiet Lion came through to defeat someguy from New Mexico (that’s his name, not shoddy research from your writer!).

1 Quiet Lion SC$5,100.00
2 Someguy SC$3,750.00
3 Bss2013 SC$2,825.00
4 JB415 SC$2,125.00
5 Assim Seja SC$1,450.00
6 SWM67 SC$1,125.00
7 Romantik SC$875.00
8 Roopwyatt@Gmail.Com SC$625.00
9 Tincup33 SC$487.50

Of course, a weekend of play on Global Poker isn’t over until the SC$50,000 guaranteed Sunday Scrimmage finds a winner and we had another near-miss for Texan grinder Logan08.

With 228 runners and a min cash worth SC$375, the battle was just as intense as the Teaser earlier in the day, and the final table saw Logan08 trying to improve on his runner-up spot in the Teaser back in March.

Florida, Maryland and New York were all heavily represented in the final nine, showing the pan-state nature of the leading US site’s playerbase, although Michigan’s JLieb38 put in an excellent showing to grab 5th place and SC$2900.

The six hour slugfest came down to a heads-up battle between LottoTicks1357911 and Logan08, with the latter just missing out on the title again, the winner as surprised as anyone at his SC$10,200 scoop…

1 LottoTicks1357911 SC$10,200.00
