Field Sizes Drop in Sunday Majors; “Temhigh” Wins partypoker $50K

Last week Mike “MikeyCasino” Azzaro dominated the Sunday Majors storyline by winning the partypoker $50,000 Guaranteed in New Jersey for the third time. Azzaro didn’t quite enjoy that level of success this week but he did manage a runner-up finish in the WSOP.com $10,000 guaranteed. Once again Ultimate Poker was the king of overlays with the online site paying out a total of  $11,100 between Nevada and New Jersey. Only two of the seven events saw an increase in field size with most tournaments seeing a decline around the 10% mark.
