This Sunday was a huge weekend for Gripsed Nation. Our Sunday Twitch stream was the biggest and most successful one yet and the Gripsters brought some serious heat to the tables. Thanks to everyone who joined us the fun and to everyone who followed, subscribed and supported! :)
Charlie Carrel Ships the GUKPT Main Event
Charlie "Epihany77" Carrel was playing the GUKPT Main Event (live tournament) in London this Sunday repping his outrageous shirts and impressive poker skill. With Team Gripsed on the online rail, Charlie shipped the event and took home £108,625.
Charlie is continuing to become one of the most impressive young poker players in both online and the live circuit. Gripsed is proud to have Charlie as one of our pro coaches. His success is no surprise if you've ever had the chance to play with him.

Greg Merson Stops by for a Chat
Anyone who had a chance to catch the stream Sunday at 1:30 got a chance to ask questions for 2012 WSOP Player of the Year Greg Merson. Merson stopped be the stream to hang out a bit and answer some of the viewer questions from Twitter.
This was an awesome chance for Gripsters to ask the champ some insight and advice for their poker game. You can watch the stream archive including this Sunday's stream if you're a Gripsed Twitch subscriber.
'Senorjokes' goes deep with Team Gripsed on the Rail
While I busted out of my Sunday tournaments, other Gripsters were finding big success including 'Senorjokes'. Jokes was playing the 888poker Super XL Deepstack. As the stream was wrapping up, Senorjokes was getting deeper and deeper in the event. So Gripsed Nation stayed up late and supported his final table game. After playing very well on the final table, he finally finished in third place for a cool $15k.
Congrats on the big cash, and thanks to all the Team Gripsed supporters who stayed up with the stream!
