SUPER POKER SUNDAY 01/24: Vietcong01 Takes $255K and Second Sunday Million Title

Share this
It was a relatively quiet Sunday on the online poker tournament front, as few big names or recognizable monikers made it deep in any of the events. Final table lineups were filled with new names, which may have removed the excitement for some poker fans, but others relish in the action that ensues when amateurs are looking at five- and six-figure payouts in the biggest events of the week.

But one player knew all too well how to play for the big money. Juan Antonio Maceiras Barros, playing as vietcong01 on PokerStars, was able to take down the Sunday Million title. Not only has he done it before, claiming a Sunday Million title in 2007 and now joining an elite club of players to have repeated the feat, but he has many other successes to his credit, including an EPT Warsaw final table in 2008 and a Sunday Million final table in March of 2009. The victory was something to see, as even PokerStars pro Ivan Demidov, who was hosting the Sunday Million tournament, mentioned early that he wanted to see if vietcong01 could pull off his second win. And he did, taking down $255K for it.

All of the final table finishes and wins are listed below.

PokerStars
Sunday Warm-Up

The PokerStars Sunday tournament action kicked off with, as always, the Warm-Up with its $750K guaranteed prize pool. A bit of a decrease in registration from the prior week brought only 4,818 players to the tables with their $200 + $15 buy-ins in hand, but the numbers still added up to a stellar prize pool of $963,600, well past the initial guarantee. The numbers also allowed 720 players to cash in the tournament, but it was at the final table that two players would walk away with six-figure payouts. Though the last three players made a deal, the biggest money was reserved for the two who made it to heads-up. Ultimately, ROHR beat gretko to take home nearly $120K for the win.

1st place:    ROHR ($119,548.05)
2nd place:    gretko ($128,188.59)
3rd place:    risiko13 ($94,758.03)
4th place:    donnylon346 ($54,443.40)
5th place:    delegator ($40,853.00)
6th place:    toetagU ($31,317.00)
7th place:    Negriin ($31,681.00)
8th place:    Joe Hahn ($12,045.00)
9th place:    Chaesi ($7,708.80)

Sunday 1/4 Million
It’s not difficult to see why players flock to the ¼ Million. For a $10 + $1 buy-in, players are guaranteed a prize pool of $250K, though it always soars past that number with the multitudes of people interested in playing. This week, an increase of more than 1,000 players saw registration hit 34,340, which pushed the prize pool to $343,400. Out of those numbers, 5,400 players were paid and made some sort of profit from their efforts, while several players parlayed their small buy-in into five-figure paydays. And the last two players battled for the top prize of more than $28K until Eugene’nin finally defeated The Rounderr to take it down.

1st place:    Eugene’nin ($28,447.01)
2nd place:    The Rounderr ($19,573.80)
3rd place:    Zenni11 ($14,422.80)
4th place:    showmecash ($10,998.80)
5th place:    dondragi ($7,554.80)
6th place:    Feri$taH ($4,120.80)
7th place:    fabfive4Life ($3,090.60)
8th place:    Seb-hk ($2,232.10)
9th place:    FOLDemFISH9 ($1,631.15)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special
The tournament that is quickly becoming a mainstay in the Sunday lineup for many players had a solid turnout again. The special Sunday edition of the Daily Eighty Grand found 5,974 players in the field, all with $50 + $5 to enter the festivities. That took the prize pool well past the $200K guarantee and set it at $298,700. After the last 900 players found themselves in the money, it was on to the final table where Rod_Lasmar ended up taking the title from wouly14, along with more than $37K in first place prize money.

1st place:    Rod_Lasmar ($37,486.85)
2nd place:    wouly14 ($25,538.85)
3rd place:    BrewZzZ ($17,175.25)
4th place:    pboy ($14,188.25)
5th place:    Jeroen0210 ($11,201.25)
6th place:    gboro780 ($8,214.25)
7th place:    ntusyka ($5,376.60)
8th place:    zobinette ($3,584.40)
9th place:    simnitch77 ($2,090.90)

Sunday Million
It was setting itself up to be the story of the weekend, though the Sunday Million always makes news with its $1.5 million guarantee, usually larger prize pools, and big names competing for the weekly title. This week saw 185 players less than the week before for the $200 + $15 buy-in tournament, as only 8,700 players registered. But the prize pool still soared to $1,740,000 and allowed the last 1,260 players to be paid. When it came to the final table, the story soon became vietcong01, better known to his parents as Juan Antonio Maceiras Barros, who sought to win his second Sunday Million title. And ultimately, by defeating EgorkaV, he did it and was awarded $255,954 for it.

1st place:    vietcong01 ($255,954.00)
2nd place:    EgorkaV ($187,050.00)
3rd place:    gettn deep($130,500.00)
4th place:    Luigi da BP ($87,000.00)
5th place:    shumeilove ($69,600.00)
6th place:    Benba ($52,200.00)
7th place:    ShiP ThA $$$ ($34,800.00)
8th place:    GodsTeacher ($19,140.00)
9th place:    LeftyStacks ($13,485.00)

Sunday 500
The last to start is always the last to end, but the Sunday 500 players take their time. Not only is there a $500K guarantee on the line, but they ponied up $500 + $30 to play for it. This week saw a decrease in the number of registrants, though it did stay solid enough to break the guarantee, as the 1,022-player field created a $511,000 prize pool. The top 153 players would up with a bit more money than they came with, while the last two of them standing - rdcrsn and MaltLiquor40 - faced each other for the top prize of more than $88K. Ultimately, rdcrsn was the player who claimed it.

1st place:    rdcrsn ($88,198.60)
2nd place:    MaltLiquor40 ($63,875.00)
3rd place:    emily4 ($48,545.00)
4th place:    Joey Capp ($35,565.60)
5th place:    muratfb ($25,294.50)
6th place:    SteveyMoney ($20,184.50)
7th place:    hanitz ($15,074.50)
8th place:    celofyz33 ($9,964.50)
9th place:    plz be live ($5,621.00)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

The big Sunday action kicked off on Full Tilt with the regular and still popular Sunday Brawl. For the $240 + $16 buy-in, players not only got a crack at the $400K guarantee but took home $40 for each player they knocked out of the tournament. When registration stopped at 2,865, it meant the prize pool stopped at a whopping $573,000, which was divided up amongst the last 279 players standing according to their finishes. When it got to the final table, the final three players agreed to a chop , which led to the ultimate heads-up match where Wu_Wizard took down bigslick166 to win the tournament and nearly $87K.

1st place:    Wu_Wizard ($86,963.00)
2nd place:    bigslick166 ($80,000.00)
3rd place:    MarkFSU1 ($80,000.00)
4th place:    MrTimCaum ($41,829.00)
5th place:    603Lucifer ($29,223.00)
6th place:    SteveDunkSr ($19,482.00)
7th place:    bonafidedonkey ($13,179.00)
8th place:    cityboy8 ($9,168.00)
9th place:    Black Pete 30 ($6,876.00)

$750K Guarantee

After last week’s monthly exception of the $1 million guarantee requiring more than double the buy-in, finding the $750K Guarantee back on the schedule was likely refreshing to some players. Armed with $200 + $16 for the buy-in, registration showed 3,911 interested parties, which shoved the prize pool just past the guarantee to $782,200. There were 522 players paid from that account of money, but the last two players standing fought for the top prize of more than $138K until The Great Pike finally emerged victorious over vennerux to take it.

1st place:    The Great Pike ($138,488.51)
2nd place:    vennerux ($83,695.40)
3rd place:    paulhan85 ($54,754.00)
4th place:    201241643 ($43,177.44)
5th place:    Shawnguysies ($32,383.08)
6th place:    Scarer ($24,013.54)
7th place:    fiepigen ($17,990.60)
8th place:    MS_JUICE26 ($14,079.60)
9th place:    DeMaci ($10,481.48)

The Sunday Mulligan
One of the last chances of the day to get a big buy-in, big guarantee fix was the Sunday Mulligan, and there were 1,212 players looking for the chance to break into the $200K guarantee. The $200 + $16 buy-ins were calculated and turned into the actual prize pool of $242,400, which was divided amongst the last 117 people in the tournament for their payouts. But the last players standing were rtkoss and greenerbets1, the former of whom won the tournament and was awarded more than $53K for the accomplishment.

1st place:    rtkoss ($53,328.00)
2nd place:    greenerbets1 ($33,936.00)
3rd place:    rkruok ($24,967.20)
4th place:    sketchy1 ($19,695.00)
5th place:    hanitz ($15,150.00)
6th place:    Anguz ($10,908.00)
7th place:    BilWillRR9 ($7,272.00)
8th place:    Grippolio ($5,454.00)
9th place:    DYSHANBE ($3,878.40)

$200K Double Deuce
It always attracts a stellar crowd because the buy-in is only $20 + $2. And the Double Deuce almost always soars past the $200K guarantee. This week was no different, with the exception of a decrease in the number of players, as 10,988 players took their chances and created a prize pool of $219,760. Only 1,350 of the competitors received money for their endeavors, but the final table looked to award five-figure cash prizes to four players. And when the final table played down, the final four players came to a chip-chop agreement to divvy the money their way, and play continued until Tha1thereis finally defeated DeadlyDonkey to take the $24K first prize.

1st place:    Th1thereis ($24,568.44)
2nd place:    DeadlyDonkey ($23,593.82)
3rd place:    pasja_013 ($19,426.54)
4th place:    jaykrz ($17,502.27)
5th place:    K1sk4rcs1 ($8,570.64)
6th place:    m_reed05 ($6,153.28)
7th place:    DianaVickers ($4,395.20)
8th place:    IChoke ($3,142.57)
9th place:    Michail Korobov ($2,221.77)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

The regularly scheduled weekly tournament on UltimateBet was on hiatus this week due to the UltimateBet Online Championships (UBOC). With several events running throughout the week and weekend, players had the opportunity to compete for bigger guarantees and coveted online poker titles, so the $200K Guaranteed was taken off the schedule until the UBOC wraps.

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

The first of the Sunday events to finish was the big Bodog Sunday tournament with its $100K guarantee. For several weeks running, attendance had decreased, and this Sunday was no different with only 454 players turning out to play the $150 + $12 event. But Bodog stepped up, as always, and made up the difference to meet the guarantee and give an overlay to the players. That meant the final 63 survivors made some money. And when it came down to the final table, it was crc925 who defeated Droeftoeter to take the biggest prize of $25K, along with the weekly title.

1st place:    crc925 ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    Droeftoeter ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    pokerarg ($9,500.00)
4th place:    TRUTH311 ($7,000.00)
5th place:    ShaaZam ($5,500.00)
6th place:    pierce1 ($4,500.00)
7th place:    cardsharkk13 ($3,500.00)
8th place:    m2y ($2,200.00)
9th place:    kingkai ($1,700.00)
