SUPER POKER SUNDAY 10/25: PokerStars Finds Significant Player Increases

Share this
The October 25 Sunday majors found no team pros at the final tables, but what was significant was the fact that PokerStars found itself with some significant increases in player registration for their big Sunday tournaments. Even UltimateBet found more players in its $200K Guarantee, enough to cover the guarantee and prevent an overlay for the first time in months. Full Tilt’s numbers, on the other hand, dwindled ever so slightly. But all of the results, including the monster Sunday Million that awarded more than $242K to its winner, are posted below.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up
The first of the PokerStars Sunday majors brought the Warm-Up, which has consistently been warming up with higher registration numbers each week. With an increase of more than 300 players from the prior week for the $200 + $15 event, the final number of players landed at 4,768, which blew past the $750K guarantee and made for a $953,600 prize pool. The last 720 players were paid, but in the end, it was a$$ou who beat the trash-talking sizzlinbetta to take the title and more than $140K.

1st place:    a$$ou ($140,745.60)
2nd place:    sizzlinbetta ($119,520.46)
3rd place:    Catenaccio ($78,672.01)
4th place:    seppmann7 ($53,878.41)
5th place:    jasonbarton ($40,528.01)
6th place:    sdrltd55 ($30,992.01)
7th place:    WhiteRabbito ($21,456.01)
8th place:    dawod_swe ($11,920.01)
9th place:    POKER-OBIWA ($7,628.81)

Sunday 1/4 Million
The most lucrative tournament in all of online poker came about with the weekly installment of the Sunday 1/4 Million, offering a $250K guarantee for the $10 + $1 buy-in. This event also found a sizable increase in the number of players as the field landed at 30,328, more than 2K more than the week before. That put the prize pool at $303,280 to be distributed to the last 4,500 players standing, and when the tournament finally came to a close, ET3LOEF defeated tongkie to claim more than $27K in prize money, which made for a sound profit on the $11 investment.

1st place:    ET3LOEF ($27,295.21)
2nd place:    tongkie ($18,773.04)
3rd place:    HAVRICS M ($13,647.61)
4th place:    pabs67 ($10,614.81)
5th place:    Rip_AA ($7,582.01)
6th place:    sonssix ($4,549.21)
7th place:    StepingRazor ($3,032.81)
8th place:    Mammola ($2,274.61)
9th place:    vanselow ($1,516.41)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special
While the Sunday edition of the Daily Eighty Grand seems to grow in popularity consistently, this week saw another significant jump in the numbers by more than 500 players. A total of 5,598 of them bought in for $50 + $5 to cozy up to the $200K guarantee, but they ended up boosting the prize pool to $279,900. Payment was eventually made to the last 855 players in the game, but it was LocoMania who went crazy on Ginobili1988 during the heads-up match and took home more than $35K for the win.

1st place:    LocoMania ($35,267.40)
2nd place:    Ginobili1988 ($24,351.30)
3rd place:    okneb ($16,514.10)
4th place:    Turkishmcfly ($13,715.10)
5th place:    99hen99 ($10,916.10)
6th place:    The Madl ($8,117.10)
7th place:    EeeTee2008 ($5,318.10)
8th place:    bechis ($3,358.80)
9th place:    LovacNaGlave ($1,959.30)

Sunday Million
The Sunday Million was the biggest winner in the slew of Sunday tournaments, as it found itself with nearly 1,000 more players than the week before. The field of 8,242 players bought in for $200 + $15, crashed through the $1.5 million guarantee, and took the prize pool to $1,648,400, and the final 1,260 players won a minimum of their buy-ins back. At the final table, however, the top three finishers were set to cash out for six figures each, and in the end, grifo173 took his initial chip lead all the way to the defeat of deoxyribo to claim more than $242K in prize money.

1st place:    grifo173 ($242,479.65)
2nd place:    deoxyribo ($177,203.01)
3rd place:    Pokerpiggen ($123,630.01)
4th place:    tobias fuke ($82,420.01)
5th place:    subby1 ($65,936.01)
6th place:    moseley8 ($49,452.01)
7th place:    nickj7777 ($32,968.01)
8th place:    JBlaze20 ($18,132.41)
9th place:    AKSchwan ($12,775.11)

Sunday 500

In the last PokerStars offering of the day, the Sunday 500 also found an increase in players of nearly 100 from the prior week. A total of 1,108 players bought in for $500 + $30 to compete for the $500K guarantee, and the prize pool ended up at $554,000. It was the biggest field the high-stakes tournament has seen in many months. After the last 162 players found themselves in the money, it was mlagoo who took down throwinphins to claim more than $94K in first place cash.

1st place:    mlagoo ($94,180.00)
2nd place:    throwinphins ($69,250.00)
3rd place:    danceofdead ($52,574.60)
4th place:    gavz101 ($37,672.00)

8th place:    zakooza ($10,803.00)
9th place:    Mescalin8 ($5,983.20)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl
Full Tilt didn’t find the same registration increase as other sites, as the attendance at the Sunday Brawl was down by more than 150 players on October 25. The $240 + $16 weekly bounty tournament rounded out its field with 2,448 players, which still went past the $400K guarantee with a final prize pool of $489,600. That was divvied up amongst the last 234 players standing, but it was titanfr59 who took the lion’s share of it by defeating Cheryl45. Despite a two-player deal for the prize money, titanfr59 still walked away with more than $90K for the victory.

1st place:    titanfr59 ($90,481.11)
2nd place:    Cheryl45 ($74,000.01)
3rd place:    pocketrockets11 ($47,980.80)

5th place:    drunk mashimaro ($25,459.20)
6th place:    this is punny ($16,646.40)
7th place:    fahmie ($11,260.80)
8th place:    _The_Ghost_XX ($7,833.60)
9th place:    KJulius10 ($5,875.20)

$750,000 Guarantee
After the exciting $1 million prize pool of the previous week and its winner Vivek Rajkumar, it was back to the usual $750K guarantee as per usual. The buy-in was again reduced to a reasonable $200 + $16, and the field was a solid 4,126 players, which actually boosted the prize pool to $825,200. The last 585 survivors in the event were paid for their efforts, but it was Kirbynator who defeated ForEngland to take down the title and more than $145K in prize money.

1st place:    Kirbynator ($145,722.07)
2nd place:    ForEngland ($88,213.88)
3rd place:    cmiller916 ($57,764.00)
4th place:    Scary_Tiger ($45,386.00)
5th place:    BADNEWS3 ($34,080.76)
6th place:    stanman420 ($25,251.12)
7th place:    jordankickz ($18,979.60)
8th place:    asaffer ($14,853.60)
9th place:    xxBabyGrandxx ($11,057.68)

The Sunday Mulligan
A slight decrease in players for the Sunday Mulligan was not the story of the tournament, as well-known online player Kenny Rap posted a second place finish. But when it started, he was just one of 1,276 players ponying up the $200 + $16 buy-in for the $200K guarantee event. The prize pool that resulted was $255,200, to be divided amongst the last 117 players standing, but it was postmannen who ultimately defeated Kenny Rap to take the title and more than $56K in first place money.

1st place:    postmannen ($56,144.00)
2nd place:    Kenny Rap ($35,728.00)
3rd place:    SqueezePlease ($26,285.60)
4th place:    djflunk ($20,735.00)
5th place:    kidcardiff ($15,950.00)
6th place:    celinap ($11,484.00)
7th place:    FlopNRun ($7,656.00)
8th place:    BILLDEAL ($5,742.00)
9th place:    JohnnyBelow ($4,083.20)

$200K Double Deuce
The best buy of all of the Full Tilt Sunday action comes in the way of the weekly Double Deice, which offers a $200K guarantee for a low, low buy-in of only $20 + $2. Full Tilt actually saw a slight decrease in the number of player in the event, though, with the final tally coming in at 10,621. That still eclipsed the guarantee for a $212,420 prize pool, and the last 1,350 players standing took pieces of it. But when it came down to the final two players, szatnia88 took out JUMP PUTT to claim the nearly $33K first prize.

1st place:    szatnia88 ($32,925.10)
2nd place:    JUMP PUTT ($22,304.10)
3rd place:    Tommy1sock ($15,719.08)
4th place:    muddy starfish ($11,300.75)
5th place:    LasseTheSwede ($8,284.38)
6th place:    1MoRTimeG ($5,947.76)
7th place:    BigNakey ($4,248.40)
8th place:    vera10 ($3,037.61)
9th place:    PokerDr25 ($2,147.57)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed
For the first time in quite awhile, UltimateBet found itself without the responsibility of putting money toward its $200K guarantee, as there were 1,003 players willing to buy-in for $200 + $15. The prize pool inched past the guarantee to $201,000 and lacked the typical overlay for players. The final 99 places paid, but when it came to the final table, there were only two battling for the top prize of nearly $45K.

1st place:    JAYGEE84 ($44,883.30)
2nd place:    MUCH_BETTER ($26,883.50)
3rd place:    BEACHRAT1946 ($18,190.50)
4th place:    FAIRWOOD ($12,964.50)
5th place:    DURKOVSKI ($10,954.50)
6th place:    HIGHLITE11 ($8,944.50)
7th place:    MIKEIVEY ($6,934.50)
8th place:    HILOFISH ($4,924.50)
9th place:    OZZY 87 ($3,417.00)
