SUPER POKER SUNDAY 01/10: Double Back-to-Back Final Table Players on Bodog

Share this
For reasons unknown, most of the tournaments held on the second Sunday of the new year showed a decrease in registration numbers. However, none of the changes were significant enough to cause major changes to the prize pools that are normally par for the course in the Sunday majors.

Of the notable occurrences, Bodog’s big Sunday tournament had the most interesting, as two players from last week’s event made another final table this week. Both elymint and AKbigfish finished several places lower than the previous week, but back-to-back final tables are quite the accomplishments. Other news found UB pro Mark Kroon coming close to a final table and Full Tilt pro Jon Turner finishing fourth in the Sunday Brawl. And well-known pro Travis Rice won the Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special on PokerStars, which is one more title he can add to his already impressive list of online poker accomplishments.

All of the final table finishers in the Sunday majors of January 10 are listed here.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

The first of the Sunday majors on PokerStars saw a decrease of just over 100 players from the prior week, but the 4,701 players who showed up were guaranteed a $750K prize pool for their $200 + $15 buy-ins. And as usual, that registration number put the prize pool well past the guarantee, this week at $940,200. The final 675 players in the tournament received a payout for their work, and the last four players in the tournament came to a financial agreement before finishing the tournament. That ended up giving the third place finisher the only six-figure payout of the night, and Vyna went on to defeat wriedthansen to take down nearly $99K and the title for the win.

1st place:    Vyna ($98,695.00)
2nd place:    wriedthansen ($60,508.00)
3rd place:    AJacejackAJ ($137,866.00)
4th place:    paddy723 ($90.381.00)
5th place:    Joe Hahn ($39,958.50)
6th place:    flpro157 ($30,556.50)
7th place:    Se7enTr3y ($21,154.50)
8th place:    teknotom ($11,752.50)
9th place:    PaperChump ($7,521.60)

Sunday 1/4 Million
It was no surprise to find the Sunday 1/4 Million as one of the very few on the Sunday roster of tournaments with an actual increase in registration this week. But the $10 + $1 buy-in with the $250K guarantee waiting on the other end is enticing to more and more players. That was shown by the 33,927-player field, which actually pushed the prize pool up to $339,270. As the event played on, the last 5,400 players standing found themselves in the money, but it was at the final table that several players looked to parlay their $11 into five-figure payouts. And ultimately, it was FishToShark who won the tournament and took home more than $28K for it.

1st place:    FishToShark ($28,108,86)
2nd place:    comestackme ($19,338.39)
3rd place:    Vikan_B ($14,249.34)
4th place:    rama5 ($10,856.64)
5th place:    Magnifico18 ($7,463.94)
6th place:    DK-ACE-DK ($4,071.24)
7th place:    UD_Deman ($3,053.43)
8th place:    221052 ($2,205.25)
9th place:    producent77 ($1,611.53)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special

The special Sunday edition of the Daily Eighty Grand brought players out in force with its $50 + $5 buy-in and $200K guarantee, and though registration was down slightly from the week before, the 5,829 player field was still able to surpass the guarantee and give the players a $291,450 prize pool to play for. The last 855 players standing were paid, though it was at the final table that the action and bigger money awaited. Ultimately, it was well-known player Travis “TravestyFund” Rice who defeated Peetoon to take down the title and nearly $37K in prize money.

1st place:    TravestyFund ($36,725.34)
2nd place:    Peetoon ($25,356.15)
3rd place:    ModusAgendi ($17,195.55)
4th place:    AceA100 ($14,281.05)
5th place:    loke13 ($11,366.55)
6th place:    ypayformydope ($8,452.05)
7th place:    Toyzione ($5,537.55)
8th place:    NICA-TUCUMAN ($3,497.40)
9th place:    andjinsun ($2,040.15)

Sunday Million
The most watched online tournament on Sundays is usually the Sunday Million, and players scramble to get in through satellites throughout the week because of the $1.5 million guarantee up for grabs. This week, there were 8,721 participants, and when their $200 + $15 buy-ins were tallied, the prize pool was set at $1,744,200. There were 1,260 paid players when all was said and done, but it was the final two who made a deal that guaranteed them each more than $200K in prize money. And after a lengthy heads-up match, Isetit took the title and more than $241K.

1st place:    Isetit ($241,087.34)
2nd place:    marktb ($202,990.66)
3rd place:    AFFTOR ($130,815.00)
4th place:    bubbba82 ($87,210.00)
5th place:    bufo523 ($69,768.00)
6th place:    ksr76 ($52,236.00)
7th place:    shep2k ($34,884.00)
8th place:    chipchucker5 ($19,186.20)
9th place:    tof971 ($13,517.55)

Sunday 500
The high-stakes tournament of the PokerStars Sunday offerings saw the biggest dip in attendance in quite some time, as only 883 players were willing to pony up the $500 + $30 buy-in for a crack at the $500K guarantee. With economic woes facing everyone at the start of the new year, it is no wonder that the highest buy-in event of the majors was hurt by it. However, the players who did show up were treated to an overlay by PokerStars, and the last 126 players in the tournament cashed in on it. Ultimately, though, it was antesvante who beat out Hi_money88 to take down the title and $90K in first prize money.

1st place:    antesvante ($90,000.00)
2nd place:    Hi_money88 ($65,000.00)
3rd place:    govshark2 ($48,500.00)
4th place:    Blue Knight1 ($36,250.00)
5th place:    Mr_eMz ($25,200.00)
6th place:    LAPINKY ($20,000.00)
7th place:    ComeOnPhish ($15,000.00)
8th place:    MCMATTO ($10,000.00)
9th place:    Pipedream17 ($6,000.00)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

The Sunday majors on Full Tilt kicked off with the traditional Sunday Brawl, which offered players the opportunity to knock out other players for a $40 bounty in addition to competing for the $400K guarantee. After the $240 + $16 buy-ins were collected from the 2,738 players, the prize pool was discovered to have jumped to a substantial $547,600 and was distributed among the final 279 players. It was at the final table that Full Tilt Pro Jon Turner finished in fourth place to represent his team, but dogspot ultimately defeated ronaldgrauer to take the title and more than $111K in first place money.

1st place:    dogspot ($111,162.80)
2nd place:    ronaldgrauer ($71,735.60)
3rd place:    amarkf ($53,117.20)
4th place:    Jon Turner ($39,974.80)
5th place:    06Alex60 ($27,927.60)
6th place:    vasika ($18,618.40)
7th place:    tommygunz829 ($12,594.80)
8th place:    ManuelB100 ($8,761.60)
9th place:    CMSkier ($6,571.20)

$750K Guarantee

There were a total of 3,951 players in the running for this week’s $750 guarantee, which was a significantly lower number than the prior week. But when all of the $200 + $16 buy-ins were calculated, the prize pool rose above the guarantee to provide a $790,200 prize pool. That was divvied amongst the last 522 players standing, though it was the final two that cut a deal so they could both receive six-figure payouts. When play ended, imahustla1 beat WanderingQueen to take the lion’s share - more than $122K - and the tournament title.

1st place:    imahustla1 ($122,145.77)
2nd place:    WanderingQueen ($102,310.54)
3rd place:    MikeSix ($53,314.00)
4th place:    Jo Gentleman ($43,619.04)
5th place:    jbock034 ($32,714.28)
6th place:    NCompetition ($24,259.14)
7th place:    eleach86 ($18,174.60)
8th place:    56vn11 ($14,223.60)
9th place:    darrenpb ($10,588.68)

The Sunday Mulligan
With decreases in registration practically across the board, the Sunday Mulligan was no exception, though it was minimal and the tournament still attracted 1,121 players to the tables for the $200K guarantee. After everyone’s $200 + $16 buy-ins were added up, the prize pool came to $224,200, which was paid out to the final 108 players. And in the end, the last two players in the tournament came to a chip-chop agreement and played on until the heads-up battle ended late into the night (or early in the morning) when kmksmkn finally defeated tr168 to grab $47K for the victory.

1st place:    kmksmkn ($47,000.50)
2nd place:    tr168 ($35,393.00)
3rd place:    Gator93 ($23,653.10)
4th place:    MiketheHandsome ($18,496.50)
5th place:    Yaoling ($14,012.50)
6th place:    DR DOSADI ($10,089.00)
7th place:    garage13 ($6,726.00)
8th place:    daaaaaaaaaang7 ($5,044.50)
9th place:    papadelpoker ($3,587.20)

$200K Double Deuce
The most popular of the Sunday tournaments on Full Tilt is always the Double Deuce, and this week was no different. Though a decrease of several hundred players was noted, the $20 + $2 buy-in still attracted an 11,424-player field and brought the prize pool past the $200K guarantee to $228,480. The last 1,350 standing in the event cashed out for their small investment, but it was at the final table that several five-figure payouts awaited the last of the competitors. in the end, FishTank1212 took down dan1113 to collect the first prize of more than $35K to go along with the tournament title.

1st place:    FishTank1212 ($35,414.40)
2nd place:    dan1113 ($23,990.40)
3rd place:    da_professional ($16,907.52)
4th place:    dthau24 ($12,155.14)
5th place:    agame15 ($8,910.72)
6th place:    toto3005 ($6,397.44)
7th place:    Fighter15 ($4,569.60)
8th place:    ChfWahoo ($3,267.27)
9th place:    handballfiend ($2,309.93)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

The big event of the UltimateBet Sunday was the weekly $200K guarantee with its $200 + $15 buy-in. After some weeks at the end of 2009 when the registration surpassed the guarantee, the tournament was back to providing an overlay for players. With 962 competitors at the tables, UB put in a bit of money to make the guarantee, and the last 90 players standing benefited by cashing for more than what they put in to play. UB pro Mark “P0KER H0” Kroon finished in 13th place, and the action proceeded down to the final four players, where action seemed to be halted. Presumably, the final four players agreed to a deal and stopped play, though the tournament showed as still running but with no players at the table. In any event, the finishers are listed here as they remain on the UB site.

1st place:    TBALLER247 ($44,920.00)
2nd place:    FIREINTHESUN ($26,900.00)
3rd place:    BENDERBLYA ($18,300.00)
4th place:    TCSTUNNA ($12,900.00)
5th place:    TURNRIVA ($10,900.00)
6th place:    GYPSIECHRIS ($8,900.00)
7th place:    GAME_BLOUSES ($6,900.00)
8th place:    BOOTSWILD ($4,900.00)
9th place:    MARCOLINA ($3,400.00)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

The big weekly shindig at Bodog this week found a slight drop-off in attendance from the prior week, as only 492 players came out for the $100K guarantee. Once they bought in for $150 + $12, Bodog put in the rest to make the guarantee and give the players an overlay. Though the final 63 players were paid, the final table was interesting, mostly because two of the players were there for the second week running. Last week, elymint finished in fifth place and took ninth this week, while AKbigfish finished second last week and took fifth this week. But the last two standing were pesto and arcall, and the latter came out on top to take the $25K first place prize.

1st place:    arcall ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    pesto ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    gambool ($9,500.00)
4th place:    Beatty Boy ($7,000.00)
5th place:    AKbigfish ($5,500.00)
6th place:    Bazeman ($4,500.00)
7th place:    Giddeyup ($3,500.00)
8th place:    Catfish4U ($2,200.00)
9th place:    elymint ($1,700.00)
