It was the win of a lifetime for recreational player Thomas 'tdubz224' Walters when he scooped $21,617 in Global Poker’s Sunday Scrimmage, taking down the SC$100k guaranteed weekender ahead of a field of 577 other runners

“This is by far the biggest win of my career,” an ecstatic ‘tdubz224’ told PokerTube, and for the recently married poker rec the huge win couldn’t have come at a better time, explaining the couple have “just bought a house in the past six months, so this is really helpful for my wife and me”.

Helping Thomas and the other prizewinners along was the fact that the guarantee of the Sunday Scrimmage was smashed, $115,600 in cash prizes handed out by Global Poker, cementing the site as the go-to place for US-based recreational players and grinders…

“I have made the final table of the Sunday Scrimmage two times before”, said Thomas after his victory, going into the final table as chip leader as you can see above, and emerging triumphant from a long, tough battle.  

His previous deep runs “were the SC$50,000 guarantee ones”, he explained, adding: “To get the win in the SC$100,000 guarantee is amazing!”

The Global Poker site has a community approach to everything it does, and Thomas is just one of thousands who have turned to the site as a way to improve while topping up their day-job salaries, or make the step up from amateur to pro.

As with many recs, Thomas ‘tdubz224’ loves poker “from the bottom of my heart”, adding:

“This win has really motivated and invigorated me to keep working harder and longer at my game and to leave nothing on the table. I would love to see just how far my poker journey can go”.
“Winning the SC$100,000 Scrimmage meant the world to me,” he continued, telling PokerTube: “I have played poker my whole life and have tried to get more serious at it over the past year."
