“patience” Wins $5,200 High Roller Sunday Big Game for $139,650 for at partypoker
After last week’s holiday hiatus, party’s signature Sunday high roller was back with a half a million dollar guarantee. That guarantee was eventually passed thanks to the 114 players entering.
Among those 114 players, evidently there were a number of famous partypoker ambassadors who we so often hear about in our weekly MTT report. The most prolific grinder of them has to be “the Welsh Wizard”, Roberto Romanello. The man is in virtually every major party tournament.
This Sunday, the grand prize was claimed by the player playing under the screen name “patience”. And patience he needed indeed, since the tournament lasted for over 9 hours. Eventually, he got no less than $139,650 for his efforts – a great way to start the new year.

“HakanSukur” Wins $55 Gladiator for $11,862 at partypoker
Another regular feature in our MTT report is party’s bounty series, The Gladiator.
The stakes have been dropped quite a bit. Last year, the biggest Gladiator tourney every Sunday had a $1,050 buy-in. Last week, however, the biggest one was a $55 event.
It had a $100,000 GTD prize pool, however, which resulted in a giant, 2,120-player field.
It was the player paying homage to a Turkish soccer star of the early 2000’s with his screen name who got the best of it. “HakanSukur” collected $6,149 in bounties and an additional $5,713 in first prize cash, totaling his payday at $11,862. Congratulations!
“howardern” Wins Inaugural $150 GG Masters for $32,655 at Natural 8 | Sunday MTT Report
Sunday was an important day at the GG Network. It was the day the first ever GG Masters kicked off.
GG Masters is an ambitious project by GG. It’s a weekly $150 buy-in, $250K GTD online tourney. It also has an annual leaderboard, the winner of which gets a GG Poker ambassadorship worth up to $500,000!
The inaugural event drew 1,610 entries across all GG rooms, such as GGPoker and Natural8. That resulted in a bit of an overlay, but that is no big deal at this early stage of the tourney’s history. Hopefully, it’ll eventually “grow up” to be a rival to PokerStars’ Sunday MILLION.
The historic winner was a player with the screen name “howardern”. He finished first after a heads-up deal made with the runner-up finisher “fjhgs” from Israel.
Going live for the biggest Sunday I’ve ever had on the stream! Playing the $150 GG Masters, $210 WHS Bounty Main Event & DAY 2 of the $100 WHS Championship on @GGPokerOfficial! https://t.co/9orHfFKXqz

“bethechange” Wins $200,000 GTD Sunday Tournament for $54,395 at Americas Cardroom | Sunday MTT Report
The Sunday tourney action was back on ACR as well. In our weekly MTT report, we usually report on what happened in the $1,050 buy-in, $200K GTD event starting every Sunday. The guarantee was surpassed once again – it clocked in at an inviting $253,000 yesterday.
This week, it was the player by the screen name “bethechange” who took down the $54,395 first prize. He managed to beat a 253-player field after over 12 hours of tournament play.
“SpitOnGraves” Wins The $20,000 Whale for $7,161 at 888 Poker | Sunday MTT Report
- United Kingdom
Meanwhile on 888, The $20,000 GTD Whale is played every Sunday. That tourney is famous for its low rake – out of the $320 buy-in, only a $10 fee goes to the house!
It was a player from the UK playing under the rather grisly screen name “SpitOnGraves” who emerged victorious at the end, winning over $7K. One of the biggest online MTT winner of all time, Péter “Belabacsi” Traply, playing under his alternate alias “kiskutya23” finished in second place.
