SUPER POKER SUNDAY 11/01: Two Final Tables and One Win for zestfulyclean

Share this
It was the first day of November, and the year was officially coming toward its end. But with two months left to go, there were multiple Sundays left for poker players to make their mark on the online poker world. This Sunday’s star player was clearly zestfulyclean, who not only won the UltimateBet $200K Guaranteed but final tabled the Sunday Mulligan on Full Tilt Poker at the same time. A stellar performance for sure, but all of this week’s final table players deserve some credit for their accomplishments.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

The first item on the Sunday major’s agenda on PokerStars was the traditional Warm-Up, which brought 4,747 players to the felt for the $200 + $15 buy-in tournament, a slight decrease in registration from the week before. But as is typical, the $750K guarantee was surpassed by the number of players to make for a $949,400 prize pool, which was used to pay out the last 675 competitors in the tournament. And when it was said and done, the final two came to a deal for the cash before DCal Zone defeated akia86 to take the title and $138K in prize money.

1st place:    DCal Zone ($138,000.00)
2nd place:    akia86 ($121,546.99)
3rd place:    SebbyG1 ($78,325.51)
4th place:    Brughtality ($53,641.11)
5th place:    Loverat ($40,349.51)
6th place:    kregme1 ($30,855.51)
7th place:    oli4ever ($21,361.51)
8th place:    KvicKiller ($11,867.51)
9th place:    CMOT_Donkey ($7,595.21)

Sunday 1/4 Million
What is normally the most popular tournament in all of online poker, the Sunday 1/4 Million had to take the back seat to the FTOPS Warm-Up as far as number of registrants was concerned. But despite the competition, there were still 29,257 players up for the $10 + $1 challenge and looking to take pieces of the $250K guarantee. While attendance was down a few hundred players from the week before, the field still made for a $292,570 prize pool for the last 4,500 players in the tournament. And when it was finished, BronzStarPro of the Netherlands came out on top after defeating cep27 to take the $26K first prize.

1st place:    BronzStarPro ($26,331.31)
2nd place:    cep27 ($18,110.09)
3rd place:    COBpoker ($13,165.66)
4th place:    hahar ($10,239.96)
5th place:    TUR30SNG ($7,314.26)
6th place:    Skogsto ($4,388.56)
7th place:    hackerschamp ($2,925.71)
8th place:    BB2003 ($2,194.28)
9th place:    Machiavillan ($1,462.86)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special

One of the highlights of the Sunday tournaments has quickly become the Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special, a bigger version of the popular daily tournament with a higher guarantee of $200K. For $50 + $5, players came to the tables with a little less enthusiasm than the week before, but the 5,388-player field boosted the prize pool to $269,400, still past the guarantee. In the end, cash was given to the last 810 players, but it was klaaswsv who succumbed to doctord13, the latter of whom won more than $34K to go with the weekly title.

1st place:    dictird13 ($34,213.80)
2nd place:    klaaswsv ($24,111.30)
3rd place:    Delaruu ($16,029.30)
4th place:    tupacmn ($13,200.60)
5th place:    _Chapa_26 ($10,506.60)
6th place:    d3vd3v ($7,812.60)
7th place:    EFHenn ($5,253.30)
8th place:    bearw8 ($3,232.80)
9th place:    jellycz ($1,885.80)

Sunday Million
It was another stellar week for the Sunday Million, despite its decrease of nearly 300 players from the week before. But 7,962 players came out for the $200 + $15 buy-in tournament with the $1.5 million guarantee, and the prize pool surpassed that and landed at $1,592,400. After hours of play, the last 1,170 players standing were paid, but the big action was at the final table, where the final six came to a financial arrangement for payouts. Play sped along from there until the heads-up match, which lasted nearly 30 minutes and found siola fight to win more than $187K by defeating spitznspots after a tough match.

1st place:    siola ($187,860.54)
2nd place:    spitznspots ($121,318.48)
3rd place:    mizarkshzark ($100,000.00)
4th place:    Lounatic0815 ($160,000.00)
5th place:    TEACH604 ($96,000.00)
6th place:    monkeyboxes ($60,000.00)
7th place:    wader ($31,848.01)
8th place:    sandman201 ($18,312.61)
9th place:    RickoT ($12,341.11)
    
Sunday 500
Usually the last tournament of the PokerStars Sunday majors to start and the last one to finish, the Sunday 500 was in play long past 4am ET. The crowd was another solid one for the $500K guarantee, as 1,031 players came to the virtual felt with their buy-ins of $500 + $30. The prize pool jumped a little to $515,500 for the last 153 players, but it was the heads-up match that lasted quite a long time. Ultimately, though, it was cypriots who left w00ki3z. in second place, and cypriots claimed nearly $89K for the win.

1st place:    cypriots ($88,975.30)
2nd place:    w00ki3z. ($64,437.50)
3rd place:    sheckwave ($48,972.50)
4th place:    Steve Oss ($35,878.80)
5th place:    mendieta19 ($25,517.25)
6th place:    shaundeeb ($20,362.25)
7th place:    Oxota ($15,207.25)
8th place:    Bruno GT ($10,052.25)
9th place:    gboro780 ($5,670.50)

Full Tilt Poker

FTOPS XIV Warm Up

This was a unique event for the Sunday lineup on Full Tilt, but in preparation for the 14th installment of the Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) that begins on November 4, the site decided to provide an opportunity for players to practice their tournament skills. The $250K guarantee offered a grand prize pool for the minimal $5 + $.50 buy-in, and an astounding 43,874 players took advantage of it. That gave the players an overlay of more than $30K. And when the tens of thousands of players were eliminated to leave only two, it was propopl77 who defeated TILTOHOLIC to take the $22,500 first place prize, which would be the money and chops to play almost as many of the upcoming FTOPS tournaments they chose.

1st place:    propopl77 ($22,500.00)
2nd place:    TILTOHOLIC ($15,725.00)
3rd place:    Aunt Bessie ($11,500.00)
4th place:    redr1212 ($9,000.00)
5th place:    IGetMugger ($7,250.00)
6th place:    Junokeo ($5,750.00)
7th place:    marciwallace ($4,500.00)
8th place:    Tigermitfell ($3,250.00)
9th place:    Bura-AA ($2,000.00)

The Sunday Brawl
The first of the regular Sunday majors on Full Tilt brought a sizable crowd to the tables for the $400K guarantee. The field of 2,448 players - several hundred more than the previous week - came to the tables with $240 + $16 each, with eyes on the guarantee as well as the bounties, which were awarded to anyone knocking out another player. The prize pool was sent soaring to $549,000 for the last 279 people in the event, and the Full Tilt pros had some deep runs, with Lee Watkinson finishing in tenth place and Michael Tureniec making it to heads-up play. But ultimately, Biggest Donkey beat Tureniec to take down the title and more than $111K for the win.

1st place:    Biggest Donkey ($111,447.00)
2nd place:    MichaelTureniec ($71,919.00)
3rd place:    tedlogan19 ($53,253.00)
4th place:    Kingphil30 ($40,077.00)
5th place:    katiemother ($27,999.00)
6th place:    koemeester ($18,666.00)
7th place:    ANIMAL5050 ($12,627.00)
8th place:    blueszu66 ($8,784.00)
9th place:    aka_advanced ($6,588.00)

$750,000 Guarantee
The previous week found poker pro Vivek Rajkumar in the winner’s circle, but this week wasn’t meant to have such a well-known player at the final table. But the $750K guarantee brought 3,859 hopefuls to the tournament with the $200 + $16 buy-ins, which made for a nice jump in the prize pool to $771,800. The last 522 players in the event received a payout, but it was the final three who made a financial settlement that ended up giving second-place finishers yogano83 the biggest share of it with $100K, while winner whatzthebet took just over $91K.

1st place:    whatzthebet ($91,255.79)
2nd place:    yogano83 ($100,000.00)
3rd place:    PureCash25 ($82,000.00)
4th place:    Ame_Stram-Gram ($42,603.36)
5th place:    Pimpnuho ($31,952.52)
6th place:    luckylow15 ($23,694.26)
7th place:    cokers66 ($17,751.40)
8th place:    pscoot ($13,892.40)
9th place:    BeerMe ($10,342.12)

The Sunday Mulligan
One of the staples of the Sunday lineup was up next with the Mulligan and its $200K guarantee. A total of 1,164 players came out for the festivities with their $200 + $16 buy-ins, and they subsequently pushed the prize pool up to $232,800. After the final 108 players found their way into the money, the tournament led to the heads-up match between Frank1The1Tank and 7IMLOVINIT7, and the former finally defeated the latter after a long battle for the $52K first prize money.

1st place:    Frank1The1Tank ($52,380.00)
2nd place:    7IMLOVINIT7 ($33,174.00)
3rd place:    CoinFlip ($24,560.40)

8th place:    Mement_mori ($5,238.00)
9th place:    zestfulyclean ($3,724.80)

$200K Double Deuce
What is normally the cheapest of the Sunday majors on Full Tilt was a bit overshadowed this week by the FTOPS Warm Up, but the Double Deuce still brought 10,577 players to the tables for only $20 + $2 each. The pushed the prize pool slightly over the $200K guarantee to $211,540, which was reserved for the last 1,350 players in the tournament. And in the end, after a long night and surviving a sizable field and a three-player chop, nm_21 defeated my44izSET in the heads-up portion of the tournament to take home nearly $30K for the accomplishment.

1st place:    nm_21 ($29,366.10)
2nd place:    my44izSET ($21,788.26)
3rd place:    Clever User ($19,500.00)
4th place:    elcheapo04 ($11,253.93)
5th place:    Chitlinboy ($8,250.06)
6th place:    woxix ($5,923.12)
7th place:    nikki219 ($4,230.80)
8th place:    IVDonkkk ($3,025.02)
9th place:    Stavroski ($2,138.67)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

The tournament that saw consistent growth over the last two weeks was the UB Sunday guarantee. Last week, the number of players eclipsed the $200K guarantee, and this week saw another rise with 1,021 players. That created a $204,200 prize pool with no overlay, and the last 99 players standing received a portion of that pie. But it finally came to a halt when ZESTFULYCLEAN took down THE1SICKNESS to finish off the tournament in decent time and take more than $45K in prize money.

1st place:    ZESTFULYCLEAN ($45,597.86)
2nd place:    THE1SICKNESS ($27,260.70)
3rd place:    LADYMAGMA ($18,480.10)
4th place:    GRAPEAPE177 ($13,170.90)
5th place:    JUSTINTUCK ($11,128.90)
6th place:    JEAN_CHRIS ($9,086.90)
7th place:    ACSLATAH ($7,044.90)
8th place:    LUCCA BRASSI ($5,002.90)
9th place:    TECHNICS_ ($3,471.40)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

For the second week in a row, this tournament did not run on Bodog. The site had technical problems last week, and though the November 1st event was scheduled to run, it was removed due to its conflict with Bodog Poker Open tournaments. It is suspected that it will return to its regular Sunday slot on November 8.
