SUPER POKER SUNDAY 11/29: Special Turbo Takedown on PokerStars Awards Audi and Million

Share this
It was a day of solid turnouts in every one of the Sunday majors, though it was PokerStars that saw itself with the biggest registration increases. Not only did the website boast of its $1 million Turbo Takedown that awarded more than $1 million in cash and prizes for an entry of player points only, but the Sunday Million saw a jump in its field size and a prize pool that leapt over the $1.8 million mark. That tournament also featured team pro Johnny Lodden at its final table, though he ended up finishing in fifth place.

All of the tournaments were wrapped by 5am Eastern Time, and the results of the final tables are listed here.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

Action kicked off on PokerStars with the Sunday Warm-Up and its $750K guarantee. The $200 + $15 buy-in tournament saw a rise in participation by a few players, with this week’s registration landing firmly at 4,628. That took the prize pool past the guarantee to $925,600 for the top 675 finishers, but it was at the final table that six-figure payouts awaited the final few. The top three finishers came to an exact even chip-chop deal for $106,468.22 each, and it was Mr. Shanish who defeated angevert to take the extra $10K set aside for the winner.

1st place:    Mr. Shanish ($116,468.22)
2nd place:    angevert ($106,468.22)
3rd place:    $saxo$ ($106,468.22)
4th place:    rivermanl ($52,296.40)

8th place:    floes ($11,570.00)
9th place:    melano26 ($7,404.80)

Sunday 1/4 Million
The field for this tournament just seems to keep growing. This week, registration jumped by more than 2,000 players for the $10 + $1 buy-in event with the $250K guarantee. The end result was a field of 32,487 players and a subsequent prize pool of $324,870, which would be divided amongst the top 5,400 finishers. But it was at the final table that players were looking to parlay their relatively small investment into a five-figure payday. The top four players did that, but when altruizine beat gr8sst for the title, the former also took home nearly $27K for the feat.

1st place:    altruizine ($26,916.72)
2nd place:    gr8sst ($18,517.59)
3rd place:    burbi40 ($13,644.54)
4th place:    QueeeenDeuce ($10,395.84)
5th place:    csabadeak ($7,147.14)
6th place:    zXJaEXz ($3,898.44)
7th place:    teisha111 ($2,923.83)
8th place:    maestro XXX ($2,111.65)
9th place:    ZebsTerAA ($1,543.13)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special
The ever-popular Sunday edition of the Daily Eighty Grand was another PokerStars tournament that jumped in registration numbers. Nearly 600 more players took to the $50 + $5 buy-in event with the $200K guarantee, and the final number of 5,937 players took the prize pool to $296,850. The last 900 players in the tournament were guaranteed a minimum of their buy-ins back, but it was at the final table that paul1975 succumbed to Patrio, and the latter took home more than $37K for the victory.

1st place:    Patrio ($37,257.97)
2nd place:    paul1975 ($25,380.67)
3rd place:    Gambit360 ($17,068.87)
4th place:    SortThisAce ($14,100.37)
5th place:    laggieb ($11,131.87)
6th place:    Klompie23 ($8,163.37)
7th place:    rofrof ($5,343.30)
8th place:    Zenni11 ($3,562.20)
9th place:    coach6999 ($2,077.95)

$1,000,000 Turbo Takedown
This was a special tournament that had been off the PokerStars Sunday schedule for awhile but returned as part of the end-of-month festivities. The $1 million tournament requires 3,000 Frequent Player Points for entry and awards prize money to the top 5,000 players while giving something special to the winner. There were 21,423 players who used their points to enter the tournament, and the prize pool was actually set at $1,040,000, a bit more than the usual because of an Audi TT RS car added to the first place prize. When all was said and done and a five-way deal was in place, the lengthy tournament finally finished with viebu beating out anti-durrr for the car and $60K first place money.

1st place:    viebu ($38,991.05 + Audi TT RS)
2nd place:    anti-durrr ($43,000.95)
3rd place:    tiger604 ($42,036.39)
4th place:    Magic1550 ($34,967.60)
5th place:    dynoalot ($56,004.01)
6th place:    superkiki52 ($17,500.00)
7th place:    Versace777 ($15,000.00)
8th place:    crazyace443 ($12,500.00)
9th place:    kenny05 ($10,000.00)

Sunday Million
Another tournament on PokerStars, another increase in registration… This one was relatively significant in that nearly 500 more players came out for the $200 + $15 Sunday Million than the week before. The field of 9,077 players pushed the prize pool well past the $1.5 million guarantee and set it at $1,815,400, which was a strong number by any standards. The last 1,350 players were paid in the tournament, and it was at the final table that Team PokerStars Pro Johnny Lodden tried to take it for the team but finished in fifth place. It was Caio Cesar “caio_pimenta” Pimenta of Brazil who defeated KillerMendez in the final heads-up match to win and grab the $259K first place prize.

1st place:    caio_pimenta ($259,243,98)
2nd place:    KillerMendez ($190,617.00)
3rd place:    floriverboy ($135,156.53)
4th place:    joaoMathias ($90,770.00)
5th place:    johnnylodden ($72,616.00)
6th place:    buddahead9 ($54,462.00)
7th place:    LAPINKY ($36,308.00)
8th place:    BRzRoll ($19,969.40)
9th place:    bo0ort ($12,707.80)

Sunday 500
The last to start and almost the last tournament to finish was the high stakes Sunday 500, and it too saw an increase in registration. There were 1,033 players in the field for the $500 + $30 event, which pushed the prize pool just over the $500K guarantee to $516,500 for the top finishing 153 players. And it was at the final table that liutas.a took the lead and won the battle against Blue Knight1 to grab more than $89K in prize money and the weekly title.

1st place:    liutas.a ($89,147.90)
2nd place:    Blue Knight1 ($64,562.50)
3rd place:    SENORSEXY ($49,067.50)
4th place:    JBurleson ($35,948.40)
5th place:    Taknapotin ($25,566.75)
6th place:    JERRRY ($20,401.75)
7th place:    aylinka18 ($15,236.75)
8th place:    EMakers9186 ($10,071.75)
9th place:    hitthehole ($5,681.50)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

An increase in registration was in order for the popular tournament that kicks off the big Sunday action on Full Tilt Poker, as 2,794 players came out for the $240 + $16 buy-in event with bounties for each player knocked out of the tournament. The number of players prompted the prize pool to soar past the $400K guarantee to $558,800 for the top 279 players, though many more than that left with bounty payments for their efforts. But at the final table, there was quite a bit of money awaiting the top finishers, and the last three players standing came to a deal that afforded them all solid five-figure cashes. And in the end, it was mikkelstrack who took down YrrsiNN for the $96K first place prize and weekly tournament title.

1st place:    mikkelstrack ($96,010.22)
2nd place:    YrrsiNN ($72,201.87)
3rd place:    Snusarn1 ($72,630.71)
4th place:    SpazlsPlusEV ($40,792.40)
5th place:    Jotagran49 ($28,498.80)
6th place:    BKiCe ($18,999.20)
7th place:    PrishChips31 ($12,852.40)
8th place:    uzzyking ($8,940.80)
9th place:    dadoudinet ($6,705.60)

$750,000 Guarantee
One of the most popular tournaments each week on Full Tilt, the $750K Guarantee brought a slightly lower number of players to the tables this week than the prior week. However, the 4,367-player field still took the prize pool to an admirable $873,400 for the last 585 players in the tournament. As the very last of all of the Sunday tournaments to finish, it was finally up to WooohSaaah and HandBanana7 to fight it out for the $154K first prize, and WooohSaaah took it down in the end.

1st place:    WooohSaaah ($154,233.71)
2nd place:    handBanana7 ($93,366.46)
3rd place:    Beat Man ($61,138.00)
4th place:    jesseja777 ($48,037.00)

8th place:    Pot Odds 3($15,721.20)
9th place:    i use 5cards ($11,703.56)

The Sunday Mulligan

One of the long-time mainstays of the Sunday majors was in motion with its $200K guarantee for the buy-in price of $200 + $16. When registration stopped at 1,291 players, the prize pool then sat at $258,200 for the last 117 players in the event. While well-known pro Adam “Roothlus” Levy made it to the final table, his seventh place finish made way for DrAction to move on up and ultimately defeat Believer8219 to claim nearly $57K in prize money to go with the Sunday Mulligan champion title.

1st place:    DrAction ($56,804.00)
2nd place:    Believer8219 ($36,148.00)
3rd place:    WMACHINE ($26,594.60)
4th place:    CalBandGreat ($20,978.75)
5th place:    Longhorne ($16,137.50)
6th place:    JOLTEDPOKER ($11,619.00)
7th place:    Roothlus ($7,746.00)
8th place:    Red_Nuggets ($5,809.50)
9th place:    cuzitsdelicious ($4,131.20)

$200K Double Deuce
The ever-popular Double Deuce tournament on Full Tilt became a little more popular this week with a slight increase in the number of players over last week. The 11,578 players took their seats for a mere $20 + $2 and the chance at the $200K guarantee, but the registration number pushed the prize pool to $231,560. Payments were made to the last 1,350 players standing, but it was down to the final three when a deal was made to split the prize money. But as it played out, jhill_madami emerged victorious and claimed some extra money and the weekly title.

1st place:    jhill_madami ($31,341.04)
2nd place:    klimAAAs ($23,000.00)
3rd place:    alexterra ($23,000.00)
4th place:    UnDeterMiNateD ($12,318.99)
5th place:    kenneth_1984 ($9,030.84)
6th place:    guid3 ($6,483.68)
7th place:    gBallz4aLL ($4,631.20)
8th place:    MattXWitz ($3,311.31)
9th place:    xxJust1Timexx ($2,341.07)

UB

$200K Guaranteed

After last week’s downturn in registration, the big Sunday shindig on Ultimate Bet found itself with a solid crowd this week. There were 1,054 players putting up the $200 + $15 buy-in to take a shot at the $200K guarantee, but the final numbers saw the prize pool climb a bit higher to $210,800. The last 99 players in the event were paid, and the final table players were in contention for five-figure payouts for the last five players. In the end, it was XTHESTEINX who took down 99NVRLOSEZ to grab the top payout amount of more than $47K.

1st place:    XTHESTEINX ($47,071.64)
2nd place:    99NVRLOSEZ ($28,141.80)
3rd place:    AKAT11 ($19,077.40)
4th place:    CHIPMICK09 ($13,596.60)

6th place:    ILIKEPONIES ($9,380.60)
7th place:    BAZOOKA87 ($7,272.60)
8th place:    ANIMAL5050 ($5,164.60)
9th place:    SHIPKINS ($3,583.60)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

The hit tournament of the week on Bodog saw its numbers increase slightly from the week before, though the overlay was still substantial for players. Registration for the $150 + $12 tournament stopped at 473 players on the last Sunday in November, which meant the site kicked in some additional money to ensure the prize pool stayed at the $100K it guaranteed. The last 63 players standing received a payout, but it was at the final table that the pressure was on to take the $25K awaiting the winner, and ultimately it was UFPokerStar who eliminated Ron2007 to claim that first place prize.

1st place:    UFPokerStar ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    Ron2007 ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    muzl27 ($9,500.00)
4th place:    ColoradoTim ($7,000.00)
5th place:    MrElPaso ($5,500.00)
6th place:    Sheriff is in ($4,500.00)
7th place:    redsoxkodak ($3,500.00)
8th place:    gusive ($2,200.00)
9th place:    limon ($1,700.00)
