Super Poker Sunday: Chad "lilholdem954" Batista in the spotlight

Super Poker Sunday
Share this

When online poker was in its early stages, Chad "lilholdem954" Batista was the spotlight as he scooped major event upon major event and became one of the most successful — and feared — tournament players in the world due to his aggressive behavior at the online felt.

Batista made the move to Mexico this year to resume his online poker career after Black Friday put him out of action and on Sunday he stepped back into the spotlight by stacking one of his biggest scores in 2013 after chopping the PokerStars Sunday 2nd Chance for over $25,000. Batista is officially back.

Casey "Sobizzle21" Sobczewski, Matthias "goodvibe1" Neu, and Brian "Halfrek" Elgaard were among the notables collecting big payouts on Super Poker Sunday. "jony_lv" took down the PokerStars Sunday Million for 180,020 once a three-way deal at the final table was made to become the biggest earner of the week.
