Another week has passed us by but it was a week that “MexicanBeech” will remember fondly because it was the week that saw him add the massive $45,591.00 first place prize of the Sunday $200k Guaranteed to his partypoker bankroll.
MexicanBeech started the 10-handed final table as the tournament’s chip leader and when the dust had settled in the early hours of Monday morning it was he who was the only player remaining, our champion.
