SUPER POKER SUNDAY - Full Tilt Gets Boost With WCOOP Canceling Stars Majors

Share this
With the primary focus of PokerStars on its WCOOP tournament series, regulars on the Sunday schedule like the Sunday Warm-Up, Sunday Million, and Sunday 500 were removed temporarily. For those looking for more than WCOOP tournaments, they went elsewhere, though the overall numbers didn’t seem to be much higher - if at all - than usual. Regardless, Full Tilt Poker had the highest numbers for the week with regards to its Sunday regulars, with the highest first prize going to hAAydon for winning the $750K Guarantee. Let’s look at all of the day’s results…

PokerStars

Sunday 1/4 Million
With many of the other regular Sunday tournaments on hold until after the WCOOP, players without WCOOP bankroll capability didn’t have to look far to find the favorite weekly tournament. The Sunday 1/4 Million offered its weekly $250K guarantee, and 27,538 players took advantage of the $11 buy-in to take a shot at it, which created a prize pool of $275,380. There were 4,500 players who made a profit from their investment, but it was at the final showdown where Makaroff88 defeated thebirdman84 to win the event.

1st place:    Makaroff88 ($24,784.21)
2nd place:    thebirdman84 ($17,046.03)
3rd place:    Sure_Shot-TP ($12,392.11)
4th place:    lspetivo ($9,638.31)
5th place:    FCLoriot ($6,884.51)

8th place:    tryos ($2,065.36)
9th place:    heckle007 ($1,376.91)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl
The first offering of this Sunday on Full Tilt brought players to the Sunday Brawl knockout bounty tournament with its $350K guarantee and $40 bounties. There was an increase in registration from the week before, as 2,532 players took seats in the event and boosted the prize pool to $506,400 and the first place prize to more than $102K. The top 279 players were paid, but it was at the final table that Van Wild3r went heads-up with jordankickz and took down the top prize for the victory.

1st place:    VanWild3r ($102,799.20)
2nd place:    jordankickz ($66,338.40)
3rd place:    TheBrain ($49,120.80)

8th place:    dapalma150 ($8,102.40)
9th place:    SlimsChicken ($6,076.80)

The $200K Double Deuce
The best bang for the buck on Full Tilt Sundays is the $22 buy-in Double Deuce tournament, which offers a $200K guarantee. Though there was a slight downturn in the number of participants this week, bringing in only 9,700, that was even better for the players because the guarantee kicked in with a bit of an overlay. The top 1,350 players were paid, and when it came down to the final two competitors, they struck a chip-chop deal and then played it out until Shpadoones took the title.

1st place:    Shpadoones ($26,192.31)
2nd place:    JaEs SiK ($25,807.69)
3rd place:    JMOANY ($14,800)
4th place:    DCLunatic ($10,640)
5th place:    piulux ($7,800)
6th place:    mnchubbs ($5,600)
7th place:    amatveev ($4,000)
8th place:    floppietjuh ($2,860)
9th place:    BoutTheBenjamins ($2,022)

$750K Guarantee
The biggest tournament on Full Tilt Sundays - and one of the biggest anywhere in the online poker world - is the $216 buy-in tournament with the $750K guarantee. A total of 3,958 players came out for their chance at the big money, which pushed the prize pool up to $791,600. The final 522 players standing walked away with more than their buy-ins, but the biggest chunks of the prize pool awaited the final table players, specifically hAAydon and CThib who went heads-up and saw the former come out on top for more than $140K in cash.

1st place:    hAAydon ($140,152.78)
2nd place:    CThib ($84,701.20)
3rd place:    littlebugga ($55,412.00)
4th place:    FarSeerCantDie ($43,696.32)
5th place:    Pececillo ($32,772.24)
6th place:    Chances Cards ($24,302.12)
7th place:    jason jiang ($18,206.80)
8th place:    ILIKEPONIES ($14,248.80)
9th place:    juanmoretime ($10,607.44)

The Sunday Mulligan
The last major tournament to start on Full Tilt on Sunday was geared toward those still craving action, and the Sunday Mulligan was there for the 1,247 players seeking just that. They paid $216 for the chance at the $200K guarantee, but the prize pool grew to $249,400 after registration closed. The last 117 players standing received a payout, but there was more than $50K awaiting the winner, so Chong94 and oldschool043 played it out to find Chong94 as the last player standing.

1st place:    Chong94 ($54,868.00)
2nd place:    oldschool043 ($23,916.00)
3rd place:    Towelfish ($25,688.20)
4th place:    RJules ($20,263.75)
5th place:    Babooyah ($15,587.50)
6th place:    tong26 ($11,223.00)
7th place:    JonnyMalc ($7,482.00)
8th place:    Guzzinator ($5,611.50)
9th place:    clotilda ($3,990.40)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed
It seemed that UltimateBet lost a few of its regular Sunday players to the WCOOP as well, with only 942 entering the weekly $200K guaranteed tournament. Nevertheless, the overlay was good for those who showed up, and the first prize was nearly $45K. The added bonus, as always, in the tournament is that knocking out a UB pro guarantees the winning player their buy-in back. When it came down to the money, 99 people cashed out from the tournament, and the last two players standing from the final table nine were EB_FARNUM and CANYON_RIM, the former who took it down in the end for the win.

1st place:    EB_FARNUM ($44,660)
2nd place:    CANYON_RIM ($26,700)
3rd place:    NOBADBEATSPLZ ($18,100)
4th place:    BANANATHIEF ($12,900)
5th place:    CROSSBOW10PT ($10,900)
6th place:    STONYLAKE ($8,900)
7th place:    CHAMANARA ($6,900)
8th place:    KEJULES ($4,900)
9th place:    YODOUG623 ($3,400)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

A slight decline in the number of players in Bodog’s big Sunday tournament was also indicative of the action going on at WCOOP, not to mention that the United States was celebrating a holiday weekend and found many players away from their laptops. But 432 players did buy-in for the $162 to compete for the $100K prize pool, and the final 63 received a payout from that money. But it was down to the final two when the biggest cash payouts were in play, and xBlah defeated squirrelz to take the $25K first prize.

1st place:    xBlah ($25,000)
2nd place:    squirrelz ($15,000)
3rd place:    ddimes ($9,500)
4th place:    Copenhagen20 ($7,000)
5th place:    BigB1r ($5,500)
6th place:    UppyTime ($4,500)
7th place:    pesto ($3,500)
8th place:    kindetk ($2,200)
9th place:    KoKoAde ($1,700)
