QUIZZ ANSWERS



After weeks of stellar increases in registration, mostly due to special events like the Full Tilt Online Poker Series (FTOPS) and the 11/15 record-breaking PokerStars Sunday Million, most tournaments saw a decrease in the number of players at the tables on November 22. But those numbers still allowed all but two tournaments to go above and beyond their guarantees to offer sizable prize pools and offer stellar first place prizes. But it was the Sunday Million that gave away more than $252K to its winner, who just happens to be an up-and-coming player from Panama by the name of Jose “papadelpoker” De La Guardia.

A rundown of all of the Sunday majors and their final table stats can be found below.

PokerStars


Sunday Warm-Up

PokerStars players got their start as they always do - with the Sunday Warm-Up and its $750K guarantee. There were 4,572 players willing to put up the $200 + $15 buy-in, which was a slightly lower number than the prior week but still surpassed the guarantee to create a substantial $914,400 prize pool. The top 675 players were paid for their finishes, but it was the top three players who decided on a chop and guaranteed themselves each a six-figure payday. And when it was finished, crochepif had defeated RobCurl to take down the $125K in first place money.

1st place:    crochepif ($125,000.00)
2nd place:    RobCurl ($100,209.43)
3rd place:    over.be ($100,209.42)
4th place:    marroca5 ($51,663.60)
5th place:    njw11 ($38,862.00)
6th place:    jstockton#10 ($29,718.00)
7th place:    RUIB ($20,574.00)
8th place:    SirRomanov ($11,430.00)
9th place:    MIB2121 ($7,315.20)

Sunday 1/4 Million

The most popular tournament on the internet each week is, without question and verified by Guinness, the Sunday 1/4 Million. With its $10 + $1 buy-in and $250K guarantee, it’s definitely the best bang for the buck. Though registration surged last week to nearly 32K players, this week saw the number drop back to its regular but still astounding number of 29,838. The last 4,500 players standing in the fast-playing tournament received a payout for their tenacity, but tens of thousands awaited the final tablists. And in the end, Oli bravo was taken out by smisy, and the latter took home nearly $27K for the victory.

1st place:    smisy ($26,879.03)
2nd place:    Oli bravo ($18,469.72)
3rd place:    rheeroy ($13,427.10)
4th place:    lilprog ($10,443.30)
5th place:    SkoopAloop ($7,459.50)
6th place:    NOTE 377 ($4,475.70)
7th place:    ALASKA RAT ($2,983.80)
8th place:    BPV3 ($2,237.85)
9th place:    payday81 ($1,491.90)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special

After a sizable jump in the number of players last week, the registration was back to normal for the special Sunday edition of the Daily Eighty Grand with the $200K guarantee. There were 5,362 players who bought in for $50 + $5 (or satellited in), which pushed the prize pool up to $268,100. The final 810 players received their buy-ins back plus some, but it was Greg “DuckU” Hobson who ended up beating AudacityLord to grab the $34K first prize and tournament title.

1st place:    Greg “DuckU” Hobson ($34,048.70)
2nd place:    AudacityLord ($23,994.95)
3rd place:    justmeherenl ($15,951.95)
4th place:    davidas75 ($13,136.90)
5th place:    tollefishy ($10,455.90)
6th place:    Moneymik8 ($7,774.90)
7th place:    Chess-AK ($5,227.95)
8th place:    mertner ($3,217.20)
9th place:    p0cket00 ($1,876.70)

Sunday Million

Coming off last week’s record-breaking event with an increased guarantee of $2.5 million and a historic field of 18,283 players and more than $3.6 million in the prize pool, the Sunday Million was back to its regular format. The $1.5 million was sufficient for 8,587 players to pony up the $200 + $15 to play, which created a sizeable prize pool of $1,717,400 for the top 1,260 players. But it was at the final table that three players were set to take home six figures. And in the end, it was papadelpoker, better known as Jose De La Guardia from Panama with a recent cash in the LAPT Costa Rica tournament, who came out on top and took the whopping $252K first place prize to go with his Sunday Million title.

1st place:     Jose “papadelpoker” De La Guardia ($252,633.86)
2nd place:    jakobsen01 ($184,620.50)
3rd place:    IveGotToejam ($128,805.00)
4th place:    lookoutdudes ($85,870.00)
5th place:    rwesty ($66,696.00)
6th place:    CBF430 ($51,522.00)
7th place:    sethsethseth ($34,348.00)
8th place:    ToroGr ($18,891.40)
9th place:    florian_ny ($13,309.85)

Sunday 500
For the first time in many weeks, the Sunday 500 saw a decrease in the number of players and an actual need for PokerStars to kick in some extra dough, otherwise known as an overlay for the players, in order to reach the $500K guarantee. The field stopped growing at 977 for the high-stakes tournament with a $500 + $30 buy-in, which allowed for said overlay and the prize pool to be set at exactly $500K for the last 144 players in the tournament. And when it came down to the final table and only two were left, TehdPwneD99 beat joemac17 for the title and $87K in first place money.

1st place:    TehdPwneD99 ($87,400.00)
2nd place:    joemac17 ($63,500.00)
3rd place:    LuckyLady519 ($47,500.00)
4th place:    KidCardiff6 ($35,500.00)
5th place:    CookieDude90 ($25,000.00)
6th place:    nireben ($20,000.00)
7th place:    bliiz ($15,000.00)
8th place:    tcblade ($10,000.00)
9th place:    Aguiar_Bruno ($5,750.00)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

After two weeks off from the Sunday lineup due to similar events on the FTOPS schedule, the ever-popular Sunday Brawl was back on the Full Tilt interwebs, and the $400K guarantee brought a total of 2,678 players to the felt for the $240 + $16 buy-in tournament. With $40 from each buy-in going toward bounties, many players cashed out of the tournament, though only 279 officially cashed from the general prize pool of $535,600. When it came to the final heads-up match of the night, pytcheye1111 defeated |||Shipit||| to take down more than $108K in first prize money.

1st place:    pytcheye1111 ($108,726.80)
2nd place:    |||Shipit||| ($70,163.60)
3rd place:    oleg12345 ($51,953.20)
4th place:    All4non ($39,098.80)
5th place:    Shrubbery ($27,315.60)
6th place:    Ahvall ($18,210.40)
7th place:    JR RICHARDS ($12,318.80)
8th place:    CooLJohN22222 ($8,569.60)
9th place:    jdpc27 ($6,427.20)

$750,000 Guarantee
The other tournament that took some time off for FTOPS fun was back with the biggest guarantee of the week for Full Tilt. Players awaited their opportunity to buy-in for $200 + $16 to compete for the $750K guarantee, but when registration stopped at 4,440 that put the prize pool at a cool $888,000. The last 585 players in the event received payment for their finishes, but it was at the final table where the battle went down for the six-figure first prize. Ultimately, a three-way deal was made before roddiass took down the title and the top payout amount of nearly $115K.

1st place:    roddiass ($114,743.18)
2nd place:    zavor4ik ($107,757.59)
3rd place:    N8SK8S ($91,398.35)
4th place:    sistabossen ($48,840.00)
5th place:    ba77yz ($36,674.40)
6th place:    guillet76 ($27,172.80)
7th place:    Ship_the_dollar ($20,424.00)
8th place:    piggee ($15,984.00)
9th place:    grotifanto ($11,899.20)

The Sunday Mulligan
What is usually one of the most popular tournaments on the Sunday roster took a dip in its popularity this week. The Sunday Mulligan saw only 1,275 players willing to put up the $200 + $16 to play for the $200K guarantee, which was several hundred players less than the prior week. Even still, the field took the prize pool to a solid $255,000 for the last 117 players standing, and it was the resolution of the heads-up match, where dOwnosaur finally defeated Mement_mori after a chip-chop deal, that ended the tournament.

1st place:    dOwnosaur ($44,300.00)
2nd place:    Mement_mori ($47,500.00)
3rd place:    TKROCKET ($26,265.00)
4th place:    jonrubs2 ($20,718.75)
5th place:    Petie_BigStacks ($15,937.50)
6th place:    MichaelBpzpz ($11,475.00)
7th place:    dalchan25 ($7,650.00)
8th place:    RiverRising ($5,737.50)
9th place:    khunglongvoi ($4,080.00)

$200K Double Deuce

The best deal on Full Tilt Poker is always the Double Deuce on Sundays, with its $200K guarantee for the bargain basement buy-in of $20 + $2. This week saw a decrease of more than 1K players, likely because of the lack of FTOPS tournaments to draw the bigger crowds, but registration still showed 11,488 players at the tables. That pushed the prize pool beyond the guarantee to $229,760 to be divvied amongst the last 1,350 players standing. But when all was said and done, a lengthy heads-up match between pokerarg and jgrind75 was finally decided after a deal was made and when pokerarg regained the chip lead to claim victory.

1st place:    pokerarg ($29,039.17)
2nd place:    jgrind75 ($30,698.43)
3rd place:    Stephan67 ($17,002.24)
4th place:    legreat00 ($12,223.23)
5th place:    TilTPROOF ($8,960.64)
6th place:    bhermes ($6,433.28)
7th place:    erikv125 ($4,595.20)
8th place:    foldyou2 ($3,285.57)
9th place:    JJEDWARDS ($2,322.87)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

For the first time in weeks, the biggest tournament on the UB lineup saw a dip in players. After having surpassed the $200K guarantee for several weeks in a row, the $200 + $15 buy-in tournament only brought in 948 players this week. That created a bit of an overlay for the players and only 90 of them cashed in the event. But at the final table, there was a first place prize of nearly $45K awaiting the winner, and it was ultimately taken by JOHNYCASHGAME, who defeated JAMES TAYLOR to win the tournament.

1st place:    JOHNYCASHGAME ($44,920.00)
2nd place:    JAMES TAYLOR ($26,900.00)
3rd place:    KIDROCKIN ($18,300.00)
4th place:    WINKIAC ($12,900.00)
5th place:    JMEWNIE ($10,900.00)
6th place:    RUTHLEZZG ($8,900.00)
7th place:    DEEZZZ_NUTS ($6,900.00)
8th place:    NEVER_FIRST ($4,900.00)
9th place:    _MAUI_ ($3,400.00)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

The regularity of the Bodog mainstay was back, though less players came out for the tournament than did the week before. The $100K guarantee drew 461 players for the event, which prompted Bodog to toss in the rest of the prize pool to make it $100K even and created a $30,850 overlay for the players. The last 63 players standing who paid the $150 + $12 buy-in received their money back plus some, but it was at the final table that Ramux came out on top, defeating BadReception to take down the $25K first prize.

1st place:    Ramux ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    BadReception ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    mr_dynomite ($9,500.00)
4th place:    ReMMy3 ($7,000.00)
5th place:    Uwillbepunkd ($5,500.00)
6th place:    theycallmetrues ($4,500.00)
7th place:    WW2VET ($3,500.00)
8th place:    011jp ($2,200.00)
9th place:    checkcallpray ($1,700.00)
