SUPER POKER SUNDAY 01/03: Uyra99 Starts New Year with $254K for Sunday Million Win

Share this
Happy New Year! It was the first Sunday of 2010, and players were ready to start the decade with as much online poker action as they could handle. While some notables were absent from the tables as they traveled to the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas, the majority of players were at their laptops, whether beachside or stuck in a wintery blizzard. Everyone who had access to the internet wanted to take a shot at the millions of dollars on the line and start the year off with a solid finish, if not a win.

Few well-known pros made it to the final tables on January 3, and no sponsored pros made final tables on their respective websites. But the story of the night was the Sunday Million, where uyra99 took down the tournament with no deal in place, which meant he walked away with more than $254K in prize money for the victory. Now that’s the way to begin a year!

All of the final table players in the big Sunday tournaments can be proud of their accomplishments, and those results are detailed below.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

The first of the PokerStars majors for the first Sunday of the new decade brought the Warm-Up with its $750K guarantee. Players were anxious to get in on the action for the $200 + $15 buy-in, as 4,809 of them were registered. That brought the prize pool up to an impressive $961,800 for the top 720 players, though the big money awaited the final table players. When there were but three remaining, UB pro Mark Kroon exited in third, and the final two made a deal for the remainder of the money. After it was played out, Chris1804 came in first to take home nearly $133K while Justin “looshle” Pechie took almost as much for second.

1st place:    Chris1804 ($132,861.27)
2nd place:    looshle ($129,645.18)
3rd place:    P0ker D0h ($79,348.50)
4th place:    mariano185 ($54,341.70)
5th place:    BFITM17 ($40,876.50)
6th place:    Slambamie1 ($31,258.50)
7th place:    coroco75 ($21,640.50)
8th place:    WacKyJaxon ($12,022.50)
9th place:    Narya77 ($7,694.40)

Sunday 1/4 Million
The tournament just seems to grow and grow. The cheapest of the Sunday majors with the biggest guarantee is always the Sunday 1/4 Million, which offers a $250K guarantee for the low, low buy-in of $10 + $1. And the first weekend in January saw an astounding 33,517 players get in on the action, which created a prize pool of $335,170. The last 5,400 players still standing were paid for their performances, but it was at the final table that several five-figure payouts were available. Four players got them, but it was rAiLb1Rd who took out holage79 to take the first prize of more than $27K, which is not a bad ROI for only $11.

1st place:    rAiLb1Rd ($27,773.88)
2nd place:    holage79 ($19,104.69)
3rd place:    Chuderz ($14,077.14)
4th place:    goyorzo ($10,725.44)
5th place:    jaimolo ($7,373.74)
6th place:    Stahlhaken ($4,022.04)
7th place:    raubritter99 ($3,016.53)
8th place:    $What?!$18 ($2,178.60)
9th place:    cheva7 ($1,592.05)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special
Players were ready and waiting for this moderately priced tournament on a Sunday that mostly consists of hundred-dollar buy-ins. The special edition of the Daily Eighty Grand offered its Sunday $200K guarantee for only $50 + $5 per player, and there were 6,028 takers. That created an actual prize pool of $301,400, which was divided up amongst the last 900 people in the event. And when it finally reached heads-up play, the battle between ksinenk and traneren resulted in the former winning and taking home nearly $38K in prize money.

1st place:    ksinenk ($37,825.70)
2nd place:    traneren ($25,769.70)
3rd place:    miwu11 ($17,330.50)
4th place:    krasark ($14,316.50)
5th place:    flav ($11,302.50)
6th place:    maniax888 ($8,288.50)
7th place:    crazy? o.O ($5,425.20)
8th place:    Gombiiiii ($3,616.80)
9th place:    johannescruz ($2,109.80)

Sunday Million
The biggest guarantee in online poker drew a stellar crowd on the first Sunday of 2010, as 8,900 players came out for the $1.5 million guarantee in the Sunday Million. After the buy-ins of $200 + $15 per player was calculated, the prize pool had soared to $1,780,000, and that was divvied up amongst the last 1,350 players according to their finishes. The final table saw a lot of action, including a 25-minute heads-up match that finally saw latouche83 succumb to the ever-growing stack of uyra99, and the latter took a massive $254K prize for winning the tournament.

1st place:    uyra99 ($254,184.00)
2nd place:    latouche83 ($186,900.00)
3rd place:    copernic67 ($132,521.00)
4th place:    AAA MARTIN ($89,000.00)
5th place:    PokerThun ($71,200.00)
6th place:    Zadeedles ($53,400.00)
7th place:    payupnowx ($36,600.00)
8th place:    Reiarturo ($19,580.00)
9th place:    chaplining ($12,460.00)

Sunday 500
There was a bit of a downturn in the attendance for the high-stakes tournament on PokerStars to kick off the year, as only 959 players turned out for the $500K guarantee that required a $500 + $30 buy-in. The most likely reason, however, is that those high-dollar players were on their way to the Bahamas for the PCA. Regardless, the number of players prompted Stars to kick in some money for the players to make the guarantee, and the final tally saw 144 players paid. The final table lacked many of the big names this event is used to, but that didn’t diminish the ultimate win for phounderAA, which was worth more than $87K.

1st place:    phounderAA ($87,400.00)
2nd place:    philbort ($63,500.00)
3rd place:    bigdogpckt5s ($47,500.00)
4th place:    KingGorn ($35,500.00)
5th place:    ocrowe ($25,000.00)
6th place:    Blue Knight1 ($20,000.00)
7th place:    teddyrowe9 ($15,000.00)
8th place:    F.Briatore ($10,000.00)
9th place:    Skammes ($5,750.00)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

Players started their Full Tilt Poker new year by settling in for the Sunday Brawl, where a buy-in of $240 + $16 offered not only a $400K guarantee but the chance to collect $40 bounties on every player he or she knocked out. And the turnout of 2,877 players pushed the prize pool all the way to $575,400, which was exciting for the 279 players that ended up cashing in on it. And it was at the final table that the bigger payouts awaited, and well-known player Tim “Tmay420” West finished there in fifth place. The last four players standing agreed to a chip-chop deal, after which NudelTofu went on to defeat JCTurn to grab the title and nearly $82K in prize money.

1st place:    NudelTofu ($81,859.47)
2nd place:    JCTurn ($64,783.46)
3rd place:    whitehorse5 ($77,858.67)
4th place:    Euthanaces ($65,500.00)
5th place:    Tmay420 ($42,004.20)

8th place:    Badgergav ($9,206.40)
9th place:    jklaen ($6,904.80)

$750K Guarantee
The biggest guarantee on Full Tilt’s Sunday lineup brought a solid 4,271 players to the tables for the $750K guarantee. After tallying the $200 + $16 buy-ins from each one, the prize pool was set higher than anticipated - at $854,200. That allowed payouts for the top 585 finishers, but it was at the final table that metfan4590 defeated medijun after coming to a chip-chop agreement to take the weekly title and nearly $124K in first place cash.

1st place:    metfan4590 ($123,870.82)
2nd place:    medijun ($118,286.34)
3rd place:    Str8Forward ($59,794.00)

8th place:    eleach86 ($15,375.60)
9th place:    RANDY W 70006 ($11,446.28)

The Sunday Mulligan
There were 1,178 players interested in the weekly Sunday Mulligan and its $200K guarantee. They all took their seats via the $200 + $16 buy-in, which pushed the prize pool just past the guarantee to $245,600. Final payouts were made to the 108 top finishing players, but there was $53K awaiting the ultimate winner. Late into the night, the last two players at the table were iceontheriver and The-Toilet 0, and the former took down the latter to grab the title and prize money.

1st place:    iceontheriver ($53,010.00)
2nd place:    The-Toilet 0 ($35,573.00)
3rd place:    IHAVEUBEAT ($24,855.80)

7th place:    fishzo ($7,068.00)
8th place:    jp347 ($5,301.00)
9th place:    BlackFours ($3,769.60)

$200K Double Deuce
The most economical tournament of the Sunday Full Tilt offerings is always the incredibly popular Double Deuce, which offers a $200K guarantee for the bargain basement buy-in of $20 + $2. Players lined up - 11,790 in total - to play the event, which upped the prize pool to a solid $235,800 for the top 1,350 players. And as the final table eventually played out, the last two players standing came to a financial arrangement before bucdotcom succumbed to the play of Mr_Ingvarr, the latter of whom took down the top prize of more than $31K for the small initial investment.

1st place:    Mr_Ingvarr ($31,662.44)
2nd place:    bucdotcom ($29,645.56)
3rd place:    ronzie99 (417,449.20)

8th place:    villus ($3,371.94)
9th place:    jarius777 ($2,383.94)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

The first $200K guarantee of the new year on UltimateBet got off to a solid start with 995 registrants, though that number didn’t hit the guarantee and required UB to add a few dollars to the prize pool for a tiny overlay for players. After everyone ponied up the $200 + $15 to play, they were off and running toward the money. There were 99 payments made, and on the way to the final table, UB pro Brandon Cantu made a run but ended up finishing in 17th place. And in the final heads-up match, it was SUSTAINABLE defeated YERRRRR to take down more than $44K in first prize money and the first $200K Guaranteed title of the year.

1st place:    SUSTAINABLE ($44,660.00)
2nd place:    YERRRRR ($26,700.00)
3rd place:    TRG10690 ($18,100.00)
4th place:    ANDYVESELOF ($12,900.00)
5th place:    MONEYBAGS ($10,900.00)
6th place:    CHERYL7760 ($8,900.00)
7th place:    FABDOG ($6,900.00)
8th place:    UWANAPLAY ($4,900.00)
9th place:    PETERFRAMPTON ($3,400.00)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

The first big Sunday tournament of the year for Bodog brought a few more players than usual when 509 competitors took to the felt for the $100K guarantee. For a buy-in of $150 + $12, they took their shots at the prize pool that would be split amongst the top 63 finishers. In the end, out of the nine players at the final table, it was AreTheseUtz who took out AKbigfish to grab the $25K first place prize.

1st place:    AreTheseUtz ($25,000.00)
