Sunday Majors 5/08: Sunday Brawl and $750K Guarantee Return to FTP Lineup

written by: Jennifer under Poker Comments: Comments Off

This was a week of changes for the Sunday Majors report. First, there were some tournaments that had to go. We typically track those with guarantees of $200K or more, and two of the regulars fell below that mark due to Black Friday changes. So, we say goodbye (in our report only) to the PokerStars Sunday 2nd Chance, now with a $125K guarantee, and the Full Tilt Sunday Mulligan, now with a $75K guarantee.

The Sunday Brawl and the $750K Guarantee are back from the Full Tilt abyss because the recent installment of FTOPS tournaments concluded. But with the start of SCOOP on PokerStars, the Sunday Warm-Up and Sunday Million are on hiatus until the series’ completion.

With all of that said, let’s get to the numbers!
