Super Poker Sunday: Dan Smith and Sami Kelopuro lock up tournament wins

Super Poker Sunday
Share this

With the beginning of the PokerStars Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP) many of poker's biggest names were in action on the virtual felt. The TCOOP kicked off a 50-event series with $15 million in guarantees of which more than $2 million was won over several events this past weekend.

Dan "Danny98765" Smith took his domination of big tournament fields right into TCOOP Event #17 to take home $125,146. Smith previously won the PokerStars Sunday Million and other live events over the past 18 months and took his game to the final table on Sunday to beat Steven "Zugwat" Silverman, Spencer "UH Big Tex" Hudson and Magnus "Giffordonian" Martin.

Nick "FU_15" Maimone, another well-known pro, won six-figures on Sunday earning more than $140,000 in cash without winning a tournament. Maimone finished runner-up in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-up where he chopped for $95,000, and the PokerStars $109 Sunday Rebuy for a finish of $43,858.

Full Tilt Poker player Sami "LarsLuzak" Kelopuro won the $250K Guarantee and took home $54,520. Kelopuro made the Sunday Million final table and won a PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) event last spring along with several deep runs in the Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) events.
