DougPilk Lands Eagle Cup Championship Title on Global Poker

Global Pokers Eagle Cup was a very busy place to be this Sunday past, close to 600 players battling it out for over $85,000 in the flagship Championship events…

The SC$55k GTD High Deep tournament was the highlight of the day, with 289 players chasing an SC$11k+ top prize, with the top two destined for a place in the series-ending Tournament of Champions, where a $5k Live tournament package will be on the line.

California and New Jersey both had two representatives at the final table, Donk4Life first to fall but still walking off with a $1,040.40 cash for a fine run.

Californian online grinder StackkedYou made it to 6th place, taking $2,543.20, but his Golden State compatriot Venice89 landed that crucial ToC spot by reaching the heads-up battle for the title.

Across the table sat Pennsylvania’s DougPilk, another Global Poker reg at the higher stake MTT’s, and when the pair finally got it all-in it was bad news for Venice…

The Championship trophy and $11,155.40 was heading to Pennsylvania, and both men will be back next week to make a run at the Tournament of Champions title.

Earlier in the day we saw 282 entries for the SC$25k GTD Mid Deep Championship event, the $110 buy-in tournament another to bust its guarantee, more than SC$5k up top and again two spots in the ToC available.

There were quite a few new names at the final table, Maryland’s SkimpySally among them as she fought her way to 6th place and a welcome $1,240.80 payday.

When heads-up was reached, Virginia’s Msmk had to deal with Logan08 – the latter well-used to the nervy endgame with big money at stake, having just missed out on the Rattlesnake Open Tournament of Champions title earlier this year.

Experience paid off this time, the Texan lifting the title and SC$5,442.60, with Msmk’s great effort rewarded with a SC$4,089.00 runner-up cash and a spot in the Eagle Cup ToC.
