SUPER POKER SUNDAY 10/4: Live Events Cut Into Overall Sunday Majors Numbers

Share this
The first Sunday in October brought a good deal of action on all of the sites, though numbers in some of the bigger tournaments were down slightly, possibly due to the UltimateBet tournament in Aruba and the PokerStars.com European Poker Tour series of events in London. Not many of the final table players this week were well-known pros, with the exception of Dutch Boyd in the $22 Double Deuce on Full Tilt. But numerous players took home life-changing money in the form of six-figure payouts, and millions of dollars were distributed as follows:

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up
The first of the Sunday guarantees on PokerStars is always the Warm-Up, which this week found 4,329 interested players stepping up with a $200 + $15 buy-in for the $750K guarantee. That boosted the prize pool to $865,800 for the last 630 players in the tournament, but it was at the final table where two players were to pick up six-figure payouts. Ultimately, the last two players standing were lbkslim and pleasepick who fought it out for the top prize, and lbkslim scored the victory.

1st place:    lbkslim ($135,826.71)
2nd place:    pleasepick ($100,865.71)
3rd place:    urgitaly ($71,428.51)

8th place:    Poiser ($10,822.51)
9th place:    thegwtg ($6,926.41)

Sunday 1/4 Million

The tournament that has set world records brings tens of thousands of players to its virtual tables each week. For only $10 + $1, players take their shots at an amazing $250K guarantee, and this week that registration number was 27,535. The prize pool accordingly shot up to $275,350 to be split amongst the final 4,500 players, but it was at the final table that 2620Psycho made a run for the top prize of nearly $25K and achieved it by beating nowapowa in the final heads-up battle.

1st place:    2620 Psycho ($24,781.51)
2nd place:    nowapowa ($17,044.17)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special
In what has become a fan favorite of PokerStars players, the Daily Eighty Grand offered up its weekly Sunday Special as one of the most reasonable buy-ins on the schedule. For only $50 + $5, players are guaranteed a prize pool of $200K. October 4 found 5,011 players up for the challenge, which created a subsequent prize pool of $250,550. After the last 765 players found themselves in the money, the final table eventually took place and ended with supergood1 defeating Egostrip for the title and more than $32K in prize money.

1st place:    supergood1 ($32,070.41)
2nd place:    Egostrip ($22,424.23)
3rd place:    soapnyoureye ($14,907.73)

8th place:    Zolisza ($3,006.61)
9th place:    MrMalzanini ($1,803.97)

Sunday Million
With a decrease in the number of registrants, the Sunday Million still made for the largest prize pool of the week without fail. There were 6,940 players who bought in for $200 + $15, and that created a bit of an overlay when PokerStars kicked in the rest to make for a $1,500,000 total prize pool. The last 990 players received a payout of at least $345, but it was the last three players who each took home six figure payouts. After they agreed to a financial deal, the tournament continued until Fraram beat zakooza for the Sunday Million title.

1st place:    Fraram ($190,113.65)
2nd place:    zakooza ($146,786.35)
3rd place:    YEBOBOZ ($180,000.00)
4th place:    Volanthn ($82,500.00)
5th place:    More4Mor ($63,000.00)
6th place:    PizzaBoyBob ($48,000.00)
7th place:    Round42 ($33,000.00)
8th place:    rjmgrace ($18,000.00)
9th place:    shane261966 ($11,625.00)

Sunday 500
The highest stakes option of all of the sites’ Sunday majors was the weekly Sunday 500, which offered a $500K guarantee for a $500 + $30 buy-in. The numbers were a bit down this week with only 915 players, but that gave them an overlay in the $500K prize pool. After the money bubble burst and the top 135 players were in the money, the tournament moved more quickly than usual toward the final table, where the heads-up match found nipe1955 victorious over Bill Ivey to take the $90,000 first place money.

1st place:    nipe1955 ($90,000)
2nd place:    Bill Ivey ($64,150)
3rd place:    deamon10 ($48,000)
4th place:    Assassinato ($36,000)
5th place:    stevie444 ($25,000)
6th place:    TheChosenWun ($20,000)
7th place:    PKaiser ($15,000)
8th place:    Evilduke11 ($10,000)
9th place:    DrCaligula ($6,000)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl
Early in the day on Sunday, a total of 2,312 players gathered and bought in for $240 + $16 for the first of the big Sunday offerings on Full Tilt. Not only did it boast of a $350K guarantee, but $40 bounties were placed on numerous players’ heads for others to grab upon elimination. The prize pool was bumped to $462,400 because of the number of entrants, and the final 234 players standing cashed in on it. And to draw it to a conclusion, Ahh Deezee defeated Gastone K for the top prize of nearly $95K.

1st place:    Ahh Deezee ($94,306.48)
2nd place:    Gastone K ($61,036.80)
3rd place:    tahlberg ($45,315.20)
4th place:    werpennstate23 ($34,217.60)
5th place:    SkinnyRick ($24,044.80)

8th place:    THEPUSHER1186 ($7,398.40)
9th place:    shadyJ10 ($5,548.80)

$750,000 Guarantee
It was the last of all of the Sunday majors to be completed. The 4,013 registered players, who bought in for $200 + $16, were all aiming for their pieces of the $750K guarantee, though the ending prize pool was actually $802,600. The last 585 players received a payout of some kind depending on their finishes, but it was WhiteRice1 who ultimately defeated mookymcmookstr to take down more than $141K in first prize money.

1st place:    WhiteRice1 ($141,731.13)
2nd place:    mookymcmookstr ($85,797.94)
3rd place:    H2Olga ($56,182.00)

8th place:    stroker11 ($14,446.80)
9th place:    LangnerBR ($10,754.84)

The Sunday Mulligan

It was a long night for Sunday Mulligan players who made it to the final table. The event began much earlier in the day with 1,196 players buying in for $200 + $16 to shoot for the $200K guarantee. But the resulting prize pool was $239,200 set up for distribution among the last 108 players in the tournament. Full Tilt Pro Martin Klaeser came close to the final table but finished in 11th place, and when the heads-up match finally went down, it was Sonelin who staged an incredible comeback from a short stack to ultimately defeat Bhanks11 for the title and top prize money.

1st place:    Sonelin ($53,820.00)
2nd place:    Bhanks11 ($34,086.00)
3rd place:    Uri Benasher ($25,235.60)
4th place:    pokerarg ($19,734.00)

6th place:    JBlaze20 ($10,764.00)
7th place:    PeppermintHippo ($7,176.00)
8th place:    HiMrHong ($5,382.00)
9th place:    RealFaithTV ($3,827.20)

$200K Double Deuce

The best deal for Full Tilt players is the $20 + $2 bargain tournament with the $200K guarantee. Always attracting a big crowd, this week was no different when the field swelled to 10,977 players for a prize pool of $219,540. The last 1,350 of them were paid, but it was the final table where a battle ensued. Stuck at five players for awhile, the eventual elimination of Dutch “Dutchalicious” Boyd in fifth place pushed the rest of the players to speed it up, and leking1 beat spede10 in the end to win it.

1st place:    leking1 ($34,028.70)
2nd place:    spede10 ($23,051.70)
3rd place:    puntch59 ($16,245.96)
4th place:    hellfish311 ($11,679.53)
5th place:    Dutchalicious ($8,562.06)
6th place:    FtheYankees ($6,147.12)
7th place:    Schnorffel ($4,390.80)
8th place:    intersoler ($3,139.42)
9th place:    DukeTheDude ($2,219.55)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed
While players began to gather in Aruba for the biggest annual UltimateBet tournament of the year, a total of 899 players still logged on and played in the biggest online offering of the week. They bought in for $200 + $15 each to take a shot at the $200K guarantee, which became the prize pool once registration was complete. The last 99 players were paid, but it was CHEVRON_FUEL who powered past PTW420 to take the victory and nearly $45K in prize money.

1st place:    CHEVRON_FUEL ($44,660)
2nd place:    PTW420 ($26,700)
3rd place:    MOXON1308 ($18,100)

5th place:    DEOXYRIBO ($10,900)
6th place:    EMO_BOYFRIEND ($8,900)
7th place:    BENDERBLYA ($6,900)
8th place:    DONK CRUSHER ($4,900)
9th place:    PYCB ($3,400)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

Out of all of the big Sunday tournaments, it was the first to wrap up. But when it began, there were 467 players who chose to buy-in for $150 + $12 and take advantage of the $100K guarantee. That was the amount of the resulting prize pool, which gave players nearly a $30,000 overlay, all to be split amongst the final 63 players in the event. As it came to the end, it was Mr_BigQueso, the winner of last week’s Sunday 500 on PokerStars, who came in second only to deadmoney627, the latter of whom took down the $25K first place prize.

1st place:    deadmoney627 ($25,000)
2nd place:    Mr_BigQueso ($15,000)
3rd place:    bpoole ($9,500)
4th place:    GILLJR ($7,000)

6th place:    CarnePicante ($4,500)
7th place:    Kul Inc ($3,500)
8th place:    NachoChips ($2,200)
