Print-icon
 

It was a big week in the online world for some of the game’s best players. At Full Tilt, Ben “bonafidedonkey” Palmer took down one of the largest $1K Monday’s in recent memory, scoring a six-figure payday.

Over at the PokerStars Super Tuesday, Justin Bonomo broke through for his first major online win since rejoining the online community a few months ago. He picked up $75,000 for the victory.

The Online Player of the Year race got shook up a bit when Nicholas “SHIPKINS” Grippo took down the Absolute $150,000 guarantee tournament for $44,000. The win gave Grippo the much-needed points to move into third place in the OPOY rankings.
