Jordan "Jymaster 11" Young has done it again. Last night, about 1 month after winning Full Tilt's 2 biggest Sunday tournaments, he took home the $200,000 Guarantee rebuy tournament at Full Tilt Poker for a first place prize of $79,784. What makes the win even more impressive is that he had to defeat 3 Red Pros (3rd - Damian Salas, 5th - Peter Feldman, 9th - Jono Karamalikis) on the final table.

Jordan Young is, at least if you ask me, one of the best online poker tournament players in the world at the moment. I mean, he has won 3 of Full Tilt's biggest Sunday tournaments in just a month's time - it can't just be luck! Or? Some people say that he has been extremely lucky and that's the reason behind his great success. Well, it takes much more than that to win big tournaments where lots of money is up for grabs. Also keep in mind that many of the players taking part in these tournaments are pros. It will be interesting to see if Full Tilt (or maybe even some other poker site) will offer him some kind of sponsorship contract soon. I'm sure it would be a great investment!

Every Sunday, PokerStars and Full Tilt poker, arrange their biggest and most popular tournaments. And it's not for nothing that these two sites attract thousands of poker players week after week to play in their tournaments. PokerStars Sunday Million tournament has a guarantee of $1,5 million dollars for the buy-in $200+$15. Usually the prize pool ends up greater than the money PokerStars guarantees. Last Sunday, 7911 players entered the tournament and created a prize pool of $1,582,200. The winner came to be "Sosnoviy", he received $236,610 in first prize. The biggest "Sunday tournament" at Full Tilt poker is the $750,000 guarantees. Only half of the prize pool which PokerStars guarantee, but this tournament is still very popular as the guarantee is reached every time. The last $750,000 guarantee at Full Tilt attracted 4401 players who were willing to pay the buy-in of $200+$16. The prize pool landed on $880,200 and "DOOLfan" took care of the first prize of $155,434.
