Share this

A super Sunday, indeed. Sure, millions of dollars were at stake, but the biggest crowd in quite some time showed up for the PokerStars Sunday Million, wherein the short stack during a five-way deal at the final table came back to capture the title. Numerous big names in online poker, like apestyles, JBlaze20, THAY3R, and gboro780 made appearances at final tables on August 30, and many players walked away with substantial prizes that boosted their bankrolls and gave many their first big online poker titles. Let’s get to the details…

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up
The PokerStars Sunday Warm-up kicked off with 4,100 players in the $750K guarantee tournament, which boosted the prize pool to 820K. Only 1,350 players would receive any payback for their $215 buy-in, but it was the final table where hundreds of thousands of dollars awaited the last ones standing. In the end, CuCbKu and Jarfish came to a chip-chop agreement but played it out for another $10K. CuCbKu took it down with pocket jacks against the {K-Hearts}{7-Clubs} of Jarfish when the board came {8-Spades}{4-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{3-Clubs}.

1st place:    CuCbKu ($122,986.37)

Battle of the Planets $50,000 Triple Shootout
There were 602 runners in the once-a-month bonus freeroll for PokerStars players. The $50K opportunity allowed any players who make the top ten leaderboard for sit-n-go play throughout the month, and more than 600 qualified in August. Though the top 81 players were paid, it was up to patsaiyan and voodduu to play it out for the title and $12K top prize. In the last hand, after voodduu was nearly crippled in a big hand, voodduu’s hand couldn’t beat the turned straight of patsaiyan, and the latter won the tournament.

Sunday Million
The biggest weekly tournament in all of online poker got a bit bigger this week when the $1.5 million guarantee prompted an astounding 8,993 registrants to buy-in for $215 each. That number created a prize pool that soared to $1,798,600, and the last 1,350 players received a piece of that grand pie. But in the end, as is always the case, the focus was on the final table, during which the last five players came to a chip-chop agreement. The last two players included one who took the lowest of the deal amounts but came back with a vengeance. angiebug4 ended up defeating CesarSPA when her {8-Hearts}{6-Hearts} made trips on the {2-Hearts}{A-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} board to beat the {K-Spades} {7-Hearts} of her opponent.

In total, the 1,029-player field put the pool at $514,500 for the final 153 players.
