SUPER POKER SUNDAY 01/17: Biggest Takedown Goes to JAMA1CA2008 for Victory on Full Tilt

Share this
The mid-January rendition of the Sunday majors found more players than the previous week interested in sidling up to their computers to play a day of online poker. Whether it was the winter weather that kept everyone indoors or the lack of EPT and WPT events in full swing, or simply the lure of the millions of dollars up for grabs, players came to the virtual tables in force.

The big story of the evening was the $1 Million Guarantee on Full Tilt, the once-a-month switch from the $750K Guarantee that gives high-stakes players an option to narrow the field and up the antes. Not only did one of the Full Tilt pros - Allen Cunningham - make the final table, though he finished in ninth place, but the ultimate winner was JAMA1CA2008 who pocketed over $225K for the win, the biggest first place prize of all the Sunday tournaments.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

The first of the tournaments on the PokerStars Sunday lineup was, as always, the Warm-Up, and this week the event saw a solid field of 4,967 players ready to give up $200 + $15 for the opportunity at the $750K guarantee. But the resulting prize pool soared well past that number to $993,400, which came amazingly close to the $1 million mark. Out of the players involved, 720 of them received payouts from that prize money, and the three players who cut a deal in the end looked to grab six-figure cashes. The last two players were insanocut and Patokaka2007, and the former went on to win the event, taking with the title a cool $136K.

1st place:    insanocut ($136,000.00)
2nd place:    Patokaka2007 ($110,000.00)
3rd place:    AmarulaBr ($107,086.52)
4th place:    jordyporr ($56,127.10)
5th place:    polpolpol ($42,419.50)

8th place:    Civell ($12,417.50)
9th place:    Lahni86 ($7,947.20)

Sunday 1/4 Million
One of the few tournaments on the roster that did not see a surge upwards of registrants, the Sunday 1/4 Million still held its own with a solid field of 33,251 players. The cheapest buy-in on the market - $10 + $1 - with a $250K guarantee ended up with enough of a player base to see its prize pool jump to $332,510, which would be divided amongst the top 5,400 finishers. Four players ended up with a five-figure payday, but it was GillesRich who defeated commj to take down more than $27K in first place money.

1st place:    GillesRich ($27,545.09)
2nd place:    commj ($18,953.07)
3rd place:    DSL22 ($13,965.42)
4th place:    Frank0033 ($10,640.32)
5th place:    narnuce ($7,315.22)
6th place:    locodonkee ($3,990.12)
7th place:    damian2000 ($2,992.59)
8th place:    FatalAD ($2,161.31)
9th place:    Truitelia ($1,579.42)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special

Another tournament that saw a substantial jump in players was the special Sunday edition of the Daily Eighty Grand, which offered a $200K guarantee for the $50 + $5 weekend event. With a total of 6,057 players in the field, the prize pool soared to $302,850, which allowed the final 900 players in the tournament to take home more than they put into play. When it got down to final table business, there were several competitors vying for the $38K first prize, and vpmember defeated MiamiDon12 to claim it, along with the weekly title.

1st place:    vpmember ($38,010.97)
2nd place:    MiamiDon12 ($25,893.67)
3rd place:    JSTLRNED ($17,413.87)
4th place:    Compex ($14,385.37)
5th place:    PokerXFactr ($11,356.87)
6th place:    HOLD515 ($8,328.37)
7th place:    bthsidesnow ($5,451.30)
8th place:    bambam1109 ($3,634.20)
9th place:    Mpiyavv ($2,119.95)

Sunday Million
The biggest tournament on the internet got a bit bigger this week, as the number of participants grew by more than 150 players, all looking for a piece of the $1.5 million guarantee promised by PokerStars. But the 8,885-player field actually pushed the prize pool to greater heights, and it landed at $1,777,000 for the benefit of the top 1,350 players. Though only three players were guaranteed six-figure prizes, a deal amongst the top four players guaranteed them all six figures. The third place finisher received the most because of his chip count at the time of the deal, but AceQuad ended up winning the tournament to take home more than $179K and one of the most coveted titles in online poker.

1st place:    AceQuad ($179,446.97)*
2nd place:    yurabond ($173,166.49)*
3rd place:    IveGotToejam ($182,291.30)*
4th place:    DRKP ($126,583.49)*
5th place:    bullyon ($71,080.00)
6th place:    s8kipper ($53,310.00)
7th place:    jayjayme ($35,540.00)
8th place:    iChipd ($19,547.00)
9th place:    Nezzareth ($12,439.00)

Sunday 500
After quite the decrease in registration last week, the weekly high-stakes PokerStars Sunday event was back with a solid field. The significant jump in numbers saw 1,141 players at the tables, all with the $500 + $50 in the hopes of parlaying that into pieces of the $500K prize pool. But registration pushed that pool even higher, and it stopped at $570,500, which was divvied up amongst the 162 players who hung in there the longest. And late into the night, the tournament finally wrapped when AawwNutz took down dfunks for the title and nearly $97K.

1st place:    AawwNutz ($96,985.00)
2nd place:    dfunks ($71,312.50)
3rd place:    cashryders22 ($54,140.45)
4th place:    pescador2409 ($38,794.00)
5th place:    AmarulaBr ($28,239.75)
6th place:    aaajack ($22,534.75)
7th place:    Uninc157 ($16,829.75)
8th place:    aaaaaaaa ($11,124.75)
9th place:    simonek1323 ($6,161.40)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

The kickoff to the Full Tilt Sunday lineup was the weekly Sunday Brawl, which saw a decent upswing in the number of players this week. The event offered its usual $400K guarantee as well as the opportunity to grab $40 for each player eliminated from the tournament, all for a $240 + $16 buy-in. The solid crowd pushed the prize pool to $580,000 to be distributed to the last 279 players at the tables, and it was down to the final two before a deal was struck for the last of the payouts. And though vers took an even $100K and CuteIsWhatIAim4 took just under $94K, it was the latter who won the event and took the first place title.

1st place:    CuteIsWhatIAim4 ($93,720.00)
2nd place:    vers ($100,000.00)
3rd place:    Mement_mori ($56,260.00)
4th place:    xMONSTERxDONGx ($42,340.00)
5th place:    THE_RAZER_82 ($29,580.00)
6th place:    El Feffe ($19,720.00)
7th place:    MrJackhOFFman ($13,340.00)
8th place:    hanitz ($9,280.00)
9th place:    Xaston ($6,960.00)

$1 Million Guarantee

It was the once-per-month change in the big Full Tilt guarantee, when the $750K guarantee is pushed up to $1 million and the $200 + $16 buy-in jumps to $500 + $35. Many of the regular players seemed ready for it, and there were 2,457 of them interested in the high-stakes tournament action. That number pushed the prize pool up to $1,228,500, and it allowed payouts for the last 351 players seated. Full Tilt pro Allen Cunningham made it all the way to the final table but became the first to exit it in ninth place. And ultimately, in the early morning hours of the next day as the last of the majors were still running, JAMA1CA2008 defeated 4ortik76 to claim the biggest prize of the Sunday majors of $225K.

1st place:    JAMA1CA2008 ($225,368.33)
2nd place:    4ortik76 ($138,329.10)
3rd place:    the_snail03 ($90,540.45)
4th place:    IamUrBigTrouble ($72,235.80)
5th place:    kice32 ($54,668.25)
6th place:    IamsmartSMRT ($39,312.00)
7th place:    Son-in-Law ($28,869.75)
8th place:    kudos1017 ($22,604.40)
9th place:    Allen Cunningham ($17,199.00)

The Sunday Mulligan
A slight increase in registration for the Mulligan on Full Tilt brought 1,347 players to the tables, complete with $200 + $16 each. The standard $200K guarantee was again eclipsed by the final numbers to create a $269,400 prize pool, which was set up to be distributed to the last 126 players in the tournament. The last two in contention for the biggest prizes were MURIBE and valasaraptor16, and the former took it down to grab more than $59K in first place money.

1st place:    MURIBE ($59,268.00)
2nd place:    valasaraptor16 ($37,716.00)
3rd place:    kwob20 ($27,613.50)
4th place:    Ermolov ($21,888.75)
5th place:    nickyluvshu ($16,837.50)
6th place:    fitzpatrick23 ($12,123.00)
7th place:    iloseflips2424 ($7,812.60)
8th place:    discomonkey ($5,657.40)
9th place:    ebandit ($4,148.76)

$200K Double Deuce

The best buy on the Full Tilt Sunday roster is always the Double Deuce, and this week was no different, as an increase in registration found the field set at 11,675 players. All of them forked over the $20 + $2 in the hopes of taking a sizable chunk of the $200K guarantee, which actually turned into a total prize pool of $233,500. There were 1,350 players who went home with more than what they invested in the tournament, but it was at the final table that several five-figure payouts awaited the top finishers. After the last three competitors struck a chip-chop deal, adeks went on to defeat TaylorFirebaugh for the title, though the top money prize went to second place due to the financial arrangement.

1st place:    adeks ($27,455.14)
2nd place:   TaylorFirebaugh ($30,396.26)
3rd place:    ALup ($20,137.60)
4th place:    hardestpart ($12,422.20)
5th place:    PitBoss4001 ($9,106.50)
6th place:    Fundalski8 ($6,538.00)
7th place:    coconacueca ($4,670.00)
8th place:    3ABCE ($3,339.05)
9th place:    pureheatscore ($2,360.69)

UltimateBet


$200K Guaranteed
UltimateBet found a substantially larger crowd in line to play the big Sunday tournament, as 1,038 players bought in for $200 + $15 to take their shots at the $200K guarantee. With that number, the guarantee was actually surpassed, which happens periodically, and the prize pool became $207,600 with no help from UB with an overlay. The top 99 players eventually received payment for their play, and among them were the final table players shooting for more than $46K in first place money. After a long battle, it was MARCELEBOEUF who beat CLUBFLUSH5 to take the money and the weekly title.

1st place:    MARCELEBOEUF ($46,357.08)
2nd place:    CLUBFLUSH5 ($27,714.60)
3rd place:    CLEMSONRICH ($18,787.80)

6th place:    DCHUSTLER ($9,238.20)
7th place:    MOUSERAT ($7,162.20)
8th place:    SOMPAS ($5,086.20)
9th place:    MONTANA78 ($3,529.20)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

For the biggest offering of the weekend for Bodog, another decrease in attendance saw only 476 players come out for the $100K guarantee. After the pool was calculated with the $150 + $12 buy-ins, Bodog put in more than $71K to make up the difference and provide an overlay for the players. In the end, only 63 of them cashed in the tournament, and it was at the final table that ImTheJackal and luca73 battled for the $25K first prize, which eventually went to ImTheJackal.

1st place:    ImTheJackal ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    luca73 ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    NachoChips ($9,500.00)
4th place:    Longhorn_99 ($7,000.00)
5th place:    HerschelWalker ($5,500.00)
