Sweep week in the Americas Conference
In the Americas Conference, it turned out to be “sweep week” at the heads-up tables. All three heads-up games yesterday ended up in 3-0 clean sweep victories.
But before we’re going tell you about that historic day in the Global Poker League, let’s first have a look at what happened last Tuesday in the 6-max matches.
WSOP champ Martin Jacobson showing his class
The 6-max matches were dominated by 2014 World Series of Poker Champion Martin Jacobson of the Montreal Nationals. The Swede scored a second place for 5 points in the first match, losing the heads-up battle to Brazilian poker pro Joao Bauer of the Sao Paulo Mets. In the second 6-max game of the day, Jacobson did what he does best, analyzing every spot, making the best possible decision and taking the game down for another 7 points for the Nats.

Fedor “CrownUpGuy” Holz also had a great day at the 6-max tables, scoring 8 points for the LA Sunset team with third and second place finishes.
Sweep! Sweep! Sweep!
Clean sweeps all over the place in the heads-up matches on Thursday. In the first match, it was New York Rounders team manager Bryn Kenney taking on Jonathan Jaffe of the San Francisco Rush. Score? 3-0 for Bryn Kenney and 9 points to the Bad Boys of Poker.
Jason Lavallee did exactly the same to Sao Paulo Mets Darren Elias. 3-0 and 9 more points for the Montreal Nationals, scoring 21 points in one week.
