SUPER POKER SUNDAY 9/27 - PokerStars Dominates With Sunday Majors Back in Action

Share this
The major tournaments on PokerStars took a few weeks off for the duration of the recently-wrapped WCOOP events, but tournaments like the Sunday Warm-Up and Sunday Million came back to once again dominate. Though Full Tilt Poker was strong in its showings, as usual, the majority of the money doled out came from PokerStars players, with the biggest overall prize going to nomaddman in the Sunday Million, as first prize doled out nearly $190K. But all of the sites seemed to be back on track after the WCOOP and live tournaments drew attention elsewhere for much of September. The results of the big-money day follow.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up
After being on hiatus for several WCOOP weeks, the big Sunday Warm-Up was back in the mix on September 27 with its $200 + $15 buy-in and $750K guarantee. And without missing a beat, the number of players that eventually sat at 4,417 pushed the prize pool well past its guarantee to $883,400. When the money came around, 630 players were privy to some of it, but it was KenT351 who ended up defeating Sn0wb4ll for the win and more than $138K in prize money.

1st place:    KenT351 ($138,587.80)
2nd place:    Sn0wb4ll ($102,916.11)
3rd place:    Beto777 ($72,880.51)
4th place:    El ibero ($49.912.11)
5th place:    krash778 ($37,544.51)
6th place:    cabby123 ($28,710.51)
7th place:    CoachConrad ($19,876.51)
8th place:    Alex “Allingomes” Gomes ($11,042.51)
9th place:    MVital23 ($7,067.21)

Sunday 1/4 Million
There had been no break in the Sunday 1/4 Million action for WCOOP, as it would have been hard to turn away tens of thousands of players who seek the $10 + $1 buy-in action each week. The $250K guarantee was bypassed by the 28,313 players who bought in and created a $283,130 prize pool, which was no surprise to anyone who followed this tournament weekly. The last 4,500 players in the event were in the money, but Aquaman3000 took out Timobub in heads-up play to win more than $25K in prize money, which is never a bad return on a $11 investment.

1st place:    Aquaman3000 ($25,481.71)
2nd place:    Timobub ($17,525.75)
3rd place:    Mikkado ($12,740.86)
4th place:    Lustcarr ($9,909.56)
5th place:    bibii1 ($7,078.26)
6th place:    Spelunker7 ($4,246.96)
7th place:    pietdevries ($2,831.31)
8th place:    Pie-Eater68 ($2,123.48)
9th place:    antoine1982 ($1,415.66)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special
Another tournament that did not break for the WCOOP, the special Sunday edition of the Daily Eighty Grand offered a $200K guarantee for the $50 + $5 buy-in. That brought out 4,962 players and made for a $248,100 prize pool, which was divvied up amongst the last 720 players in the tournament. When it was all over, Kid Blaast lost out to X-Men XXL in the heads-up portion of the tournament, and X-Men XXL took home nearly $32K for the effort.

1st place:    X-Men XXL ($31,756.80)
2nd place:    Kid Blaast ($22,204.95)
3rd place:    VictorRamdin ($14,761.95)
4th place:    Analyser2 ($12,280.95)
5th place:    UGA7211 ($9,799.95)
6th place:    Akke P. ($7,318.95)
7th place:    flavorfla ($4,962.00)
8th place:    1stBumhunter ($2,977.20)
9th place:    hyx0720 ($1,885.56)

Sunday Million

Back from its WCOOP vacation, the Sunday Million was back to take over the Sunday majors. The $1.5 million guarantee draws the biggest crowds and most substantial prize pools each week, by far, and this week a total of 7,515 players bought in for $200 + $15. That number pushed the prize pool up just a smidge to $1,503,000, and the top 1,080 players received at least their buy-ins back. But in the end, the biggest first place prize of the week went to nomaddman, who dominated much of the final table play and took out mikal12345 in the end to complete the victory, which was worth nearly $190K because of a four-way chip agreement.

1st place:    nomaddman ($189,233.00)
2nd place:    mikal12345 ($120,002.11)
3rd place:    jas42 ($149,000.00)
4th place:    RonaldKosh ($133,000.00)
5th place:    jgrhajsj ($61,623.00)
6th place:    Nativebounty ($46,593.00)
7th place:    doulas12 ($32,314.50)
8th place:    SooSavage ($18,036.00)
9th place:    TheRealMT ($11,648.25)


Sunday 500

The last on the PokerStars schedule was the high-stakes Sunday 500, where players compete for a $500K prize pool by buying in for $500 + $30. The prize pool was a bit higher this week - $508,000 - because of the 1,016 players who registered, and the 153 top players took a piece of that pie. But when it was over and the lengthy heads-up match was finally over in the wee hours of the morning, Mr_BigQueso defeated newg_choier to take home more than $87K for the hard-fought win.

1st place:    Mr_BigQueso ($87,680.80)
2nd place:    newg_choier ($63,500.00)
3rd place:    Belabacsi ($48,260.00)
4th place:    caecilius ($35,356.80)
5th place:    ryanbluf ($25,146.00)
6th place:    stpauli111 ($20,066.00)
7th place:    ramondemon77 ($14,986.00)
8th place:    Percussion ($9,906.00)
9th place:    Big_Nemo ($5,588.00)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

The first of the Sunday fares on Full Tilt brought the brawl, with its $350K guarantee and $40 bounties for knocking out specific players. There were 2,391 players up for the task at $240 + $16 per person, and that put the prize pool at $478,200, well past the guarantee. The last 234 players standing were paid, but seigo74 ended up finishing it off by taking out Flexicom and winning the tournament, which was good for a near $100K payday.

1st place:    seigo74 ($97,528.89)
2nd place:    Flexicom ($63,122.40)
3rd place:    matt126912 ($46,863.60)
4th place:    ItalianCrusher ($35,386.80)

8th place:    sintik222 ($7,651.20)
9th place:    buriedatsea ($5,738.40)

$750,000 Guarantee
Back to its regular $750K guaranteed prize pool, the weekly tournament that sometimes ups its guarantee and buy-in was back to its usual $200 + $16 buy-in. The crowd of 4,008 players pushed the overall bank to $801,600, and the last 585 players in the tournament were able to take advantage of cashouts. But when it was all said and done, the last four players agreed to chop the prize pool evenly, though want2bedominated won and took extra cash for going the distance.

1st place:    want2bedominated ($89,229.08)
2nd place:    AmazingMiss ($79,405.50)
3rd place:    cataron ($79,405.50)

8th place:    goodvibe ($14,428.80)
9th place:    StickyIckyEarl ($10,741.44)

The Sunday Mulligan

As always, the Sunday Mulligan found itself with a solid turnout for its $200K guarantee. There were 1,185 players who bought in for $200 + $16, which pushed the prize pool up a bit to $237,000. After the last 108 players in the event were in the money, it was on to the final table, where Ton Locsta finally defeated ROLLIE_416 for the win and more than $53K.

1st place:    Ton Locsta ($53,325.00)
2nd place:    ROLLIE_416 ($33,772.50)

8th place:    bcpjr ($5,332.50)
9th place:    HustlerGrune ($3,792.00)

$200K Double Deuce
In the most popular of the Sunday offerings on Full Tilt, players enjoy the $200K guarantee for a mere $20 + $2 buy-in. This week, registration stopped with 10,772 players in the mix, which made for an actual pool of $215,440. The top 1,350 players were paid, but UFman2 ended up defeating ThePimpOfPoker to take down more than $22K in winnings.

1st place:    UFman2 ($33,393.20)
2nd place:    ThePimpOfPoker ($22,621.20)

8th place:    FIFA0607 ($3,080.79)
9th place:    Brett7192 ($2,178.10)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed
The biggest tournament of the week on UltimateBet offered its standard $200K guarantee for a $200 + $15 buy-in. This week, there were 937 interested players, which again created an overlay for them with UltimateBet kicked in the rest of the money to ensure the $200K prize pool. The final 99 players were paid, and the last one standing was BELIEVER1982, who defeated SOLOD for the win.

1st place:    BELIEVER1982 ($44,660)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

In its biggest offering of the week, Bodog put up its $100K guarantee offer for a buy-in of $150 + $12, and there were 441 interested players. As usually happens, there was a nice overlay for the players who came out for it, and after the last 63 players made it into the money, the final table ended the night with giertje taking out zubs1aa for the title and $25K in prize money.

1st place:    giertje ($25,000)
