SUPER POKER SUNDAY 12/20: Millions in Holiday Money Awarded to Final Tables

Share this
With two Sundays left in the year 2009, December 20 brought about the usual plethora of big Sunday tournaments for those seeking a break from the hectic days of shopping, cooking, traveling, decorating, and spending time with family and friends. And though one might think registration would be down for most of the tournaments because of the holidays, the opposite was true as the numbers were solid for a weekend so busy for so many.

Not many well-known players made final table appearances, with the exception of players like Chris “Moorman1” Moorman and James “Mig_com” Mackey. And final table deals kept any one player from garnering anything more than a $206K prize in the biggest of the tournaments. But the excitement of all of the action was substantial nonetheless, as millions upon millions were on the line, and holiday money was just some consistent play, mixed with a little luck, away.

All of the Sunday Majors results with all of the holiday winnings are listed here.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

Kicking off the PokerStars Sunday, as usual, was the Warm-Up with its $750K guarantee. More players came out on the 20th than the prior week, and registration ended with 4,621 players buying in for $200 + $15. That brought the prize pool up to a solid $924,200 for the last 675 players in the tournament. When the field was thinned to only four players, they came to a chip-chop agreement for the remainder of the prize money, and jdawg217 ended up going on to defeat danny04 heads-up to take the title and lion’s share of the money.

1st place:    jdawg217 ($116,916.77)
2nd place:    danny04 ($109,460.95)
3rd place:    Nontoxx ($79,698.03)
4th place:    OSHREK ($75,048.06)
5th place:    G A W ($39,278.50)

9th place:    taugonut ($7,393.60)

Sunday 1/4 Million
The biggest turnout in all of the Sunday majors across the board was once again the Sunday 1/4 Million, as tens of thousands of players looked to buy in for $10 + $1 in search of their piece of the $250K guarantee. With the total number of players set at 30,245 at the end of registration, the prize pool was a substantial $302,450, and it was eventually distributed amongst the last 4,500 players in the tournament. Ultimately, though, it came down to a match between FedExDeac19 and Tango7, and the former charged ahead to grab the title and $27K in prize money.

1st place:    FedExDeac19 ($27,239.36)
2nd place:    Tango7 ($18,721.65)
3rd place:    XeriaX ($13,610.25)
4th place:    pifko15 ($10,585.75)

9th place:    Grossergnom ($1,512.25)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special
The special edition of the Daily Eighty Grand continued to grow in popularity with its Sunday edition boasting of a $200K guarantee. For only $50 + $5, players saw the great value and 5,573 of them signed up. That created an actual prize pool of $278,650, which was split amongst the last 810 people according to their finishes. The best finish went to danjuluc, who defeated Robinson47 in heads-up play and took down more than $35K in prize money.

1st place:    danjuluc ($35,390.98)
2nd place:    Robinson47 ($24,939.17)
3rd place:    lebogilles ($16,579.67)

5th place:    Vingtcent ($10,867.35)
6th place:    JBT449 ($8,080.85)
7th place:    harewoodharb ($5,433.67)
8th place:    G8vMyLfeAway ($3,343.80)
9th place:    THESYST3M ($1,950.55)

Sunday Million
The players turned out in force, as usual for the Sunday Million and its stellar $1.5 million guarantee, even showing an increase in registration from the prior week. With a $200 + $15 buy-in required, there were 8,540 interested players who combined to create a $1,708,000 prize pool. There were 1,260 payouts made to those who survived most of the field, but then it was at the final table that well-known player Chris “Moorman1” made an appearance, though he disappeared in eighth place. The final three players made a chip-chop deal, which led to hassan77 and dapalma150 playing heads-up. The fast action finally resulted in hassan77 taking it down, though he received less money for the win than dapalma150 took for second place.

1st place:    hassan77 ($195,661.67)
2nd place:    dapalma150 ($206,512.78)
3rd place:    moorzer ($160,782.35)
4th place:    BigFlopper01 ($85,400.00)
5th place:    munson1049 ($68,320.00)

8th place:    Moorman1 ($18,788.00)
9th place:    YaaGy ($13,237.00)

Sunday 500
The last tournament of the PokerStars Sunday brought high stakes players to the virtual felt with the enticement of a $500K guarantee. Those with $500 + $30 to play, or the satellite wins to offer them the opportunity, took to the tables, and the field of 1,026 brought the prize pool up to $513,000 for the final 153 players. Some big names came close to making the final table, but it was eventually Disgueh and Ericb09 who took it to the final hand, where Disgueh emerged victorious and took home more than $88K for the win.

1st place:    Disgueh ($88,543.80)
2nd place:    Ericb09 ($64,125.00)

9th place:    crzysavage ($5,643.00)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

Getting players in the mood for a day of Full Tilt tournaments was the Sunday Brawl, and it’s $240 + $16 buy-in gave players a $400K guarantee and the ability to win $40 for every player he or she eliminated. The prize pool created by the 2,621-player field was a sizable $524,200, and in addition to the bounties available, 279 players also took a piece of the prize money. When it came down to the final table, the action moved smoothly to heads-up, where ThatsFrushedUp eliminated El Spewtardo to take the title and more than $106K in reward money.

$1 Million Guarantee

Once a month, the players of the $750K guarantee get an opportunity to up the ante. For a bigger buy-in of $500 + $35 and a bigger guarantee of $1 million, the stakes are higher, as are the rewards. The $1 Million Guarantee event found 2,331 players interested in the action, which created a prize pool of $1,165,500 to be distributed amongst the 351 players who made it into the money. The final table action was intense with so much money on the line, and the final three players made a deal to guarantee each of them a six-figure payout. In the end, third place won the most money, but YrrsiNN beat DCVasya1945 for the title.

1st place:    YrrsiNN ($127,420.10)

The Sunday Mulligan
Players looking for the good old fashioned $200 + $16 buy-in got it with the Sunday Mulligan. There were 1,222 players interested in the $200K guarantee, though the size of the field brought the prize pool up to $244,400. The last 117 players in the tournament received payouts, but none like the final table players, which included well-known player James “Mig_com” Mackey. In the end, Luukie21 and steamcontrol made it to heads-up, where the former defeated the latter to claim the $53K first place prize.

$200K Double Deuce

After taking a break for the MiniFTOPS last week, it was back. The best buy on Full Tilt Sundays is always the Double Deuce, which offers a stellar $200K guarantee for a mere $20 + $2 buy-in. This week found a significant decrease in the number of players from two weeks prior, however, with only 10,838 in attendance as compared to 11,420 during its last run. But the prize pool still surpassed the guarantee and landed at $216,760, which was distributed to the last 1,350 players in the tournament. And in the final heads-up match, johnymac222 took down Apal0mb0 to take nearly $34K in first prize money to go along with the title.

1st place:    johnymac222 ($33,597.80)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

While many tournaments saw decreases in registration due to the holidays, the big tournament of the UB Sunday saw an increase when 1,014 players signed up to take a shot at the $200K guarantee. With a buy-in of $200 + $15, the prize pool ended up with $202,800 in it, and the last 99 players standing were awarded pieces of it. But it was at the final table that the felt-fight ensued for the $45K first place money, and that money was eventually taken by JOHNYCASHGAME, who defeated BONEZEE in the heads-up portion of the tournament.

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

The major Bodog Sunday offering saw a very slight downturn this week, and the $100K guarantee presented another significant overlay for the players who logged on to take their shots at the $25K first place prize. There were 451 players in the field for the $150 + $12 event, and the 63 of them who outlasted the rest received a payday for their efforts. At the final table, the last of the battles took place between mattlee3 and cbo187, and the former came out on top to claim the weekly title and first place holiday money.
