Super Poker Sunday 03/07: Two Final Tables for reelhugefish Highlights First March Sunday

Share this
It was the first Sunday in March, and while still in the height of live poker tournament season, a solid number of players found their ways to the online poker tables for the Sunday majors. There were noticeable increases in the number of players at the PokerStars tables, in addition to the big events on UltimateBet and Bodog, and though Full Tilt didn’t experience the same rise in numbers, no notable decreases were in order either.

The biggest prize of the day went to MAE9690 in the PokerStars Sunday Million, who took down $260K for first place even after a four-way deal that offered less money than would have been won should MAE9690 have taken it down without the agreement. But also in notable news, one of those players in the Sunday Million, reelhugefish who took third place in the event, also made the final table of the Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special. Though not classified as one of the official Sunday majors, the prize pool is always noteworthy, and reelhugefish finished ninth in that tournament in addition to the Sunday Million score.

All of the stats and final table finishes for the Sunday majors are listed below.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

The first of the Sunday majors on PokerStars brought the opportunity for a $750K guarantee, courtesy of the Warm-Up. The $200 + $15 buy-in tournament saw another rise in registration, as it topped off at 4,980 players and pushed the prize pool up to $996,000. As the tournament progressed, the final 720 players left standing received a portion of it, but it was at the final table where the last six players made a chip-chop deal for the remainder of the money, and in the end, Ramux came out on top with a $139K payday.

1st place:    Ramux ($139,163.73)
2nd place:    Hismoon ($77,163.71)
3rd place:    juda10 ($66,163.71)
4th place:    Ansgar2000 ($86,163.71)
5th place:    Method999 ($68,163.71)
6th place:    feez0 ($48,163.71)
7th place:    gaffel ($22,410.00)
8th place:    L C P ($12,450.00)
9th place:    Shaaarrrp ($7,968.00)

Sunday 1/4 Million
The biggest gathering of poker players on the internet takes place each week in the Sunday 1/4 Million event, where a $250K guarantee is offered for the low buy-in of only $10 + $1. Tens of thousands of players come out for the tournament, and this week the final number was 35,898 players. That pushed the prize pool way beyond the guarantee to where it landed at $358,980, which allowed 5,400 players to be paid. And in the end, 342_g was able to defeat Baupie to grab nearly $30K in prize money for first place. Not too bad for an $11 investment.

1st place:    342_g ($29,757.50)
2nd place:    Baupie ($20,461.86)
3rd place:    Joffre45 ($15,077.16)
4th place:    dizzledope ($11,487.36)
5th place:    jerico13 ($7,897.56)
6th place:    bigblue52001 ($4,307.76)
7th place:    Brigada90 ($3,230.82)
8th place:    RH5252 ($2,333.37)
9th place:    Mr.PK 1 ($1,705.15)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special
Although not officially one of the Sunday majors, its $200K guarantee as a Sunday special of its daily tournament is one that many players take note of, especially because of its $50 + $5 buy-in. This week found 6,529 players at the tables, which made for a sizable prize pool of $326,450, which was divided amongst the last 990 players in the tournament. And at the final table, it should be noted that reelhugefish was grabbing ninth place here while going on to make the final table of the Sunday Million, where a third place finish was in order. There was $40K up for grabs for the first place finisher, and it was jdsteinb who won the heads-up battle with zzzzz55 to take it down.

1st place:    jdsteinb ($40,810.07)
2nd place:    zzzzz55 ($27,682.96)
3rd place:    aalliinn84 ($18,607.65)
4th place:    Mario081186 ($15,016.70)
5th place:    rastafou68 ($11,752.20)
6th place:    alex1859 ($8,487.70)
7th place:    BcnPinga ($5,712.87)
8th place:    punisher03 ($3,754.17)
9th place:    reelhugefish ($2,285.15)

Sunday Million
It is always a big week for the Sunday Million, but this week saw another crowd of more than 10K players, which looks to be a positive trend in registration increases for the tournament. With $1.5 million guaranteed for the prize pool, players of all bankroll levels either buy-in for $200 + $15 or try to satellite in to the biggest online poker event on the internet. This week brought 10,123 players to the tables, which made the prize pool a whopping $2,024,600, and it allowed 1,440 players to cash. But at the final table, the last four players made a deal to split the last of the money, and one of those players was reelhugefish, who just finished in ninth place in the Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special. But in the end, MAE9690 dominated play and beat camillo30 to take $260K in first place prize money.

1st place:    MAE9690 ($260,000.00)*
2nd place:    camillo30 ($176,959.80)*
3rd place:    reelhugefish ($150,000.00)*
4th place:    asturiano ($150,000.00)*
5th place:    AA TURON AA ($80,984.00)
6th place:    over.be ($60,738.00)
7th place:    maestrocaggi ($40,492.00)
8th place:    Lagerborg ($20,246.00)
9th place:    adam eterno ($13,767.28)

Sunday 500
To wrap up the night on PokerStars, the Sunday 500 was in order with its high-stakes buy-in of $500 + $30 and high-stakes guarantee of $500K. The crowd was a stellar one, as 1,098 players took to the tables and created a subsequent prize pool of $549,000. That allowed the last 162 players standing to receive a payout for their deep runs in the event, but it was at the final table where m3tph took down 99NvrLosez to grab more than $93K in first place prize money to go along with the weekly title.

1st place:    m3tph ($93,330.00)
2nd place:    99NvrLosez ($68.625.00)
3rd place:    pad100 ($52,100.00)
4th place:    iloseflips24 ($37,332.00)
5th place:    call110 ($27,175.50)
6th place:    HN Kakaroto ($21,685.50)
7th place:    PCI70 ($16,195.50)
8th place:    NoraFlum ($10,705.50)
9th place:    Drewfus81 ($5,929.20)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

A slight increase in registration was in order for the ever-popular Sunday Brawl on Full Tilt, as 2,911 players bought in for $240 + $16 to take a shot at the $400K guarantee and the $40 bounties set on each player for simply being able to knock them out. The various ways to cash in on the tournament were increased by a $582,200 prize pool that paid out 279 places. However, as always, the spotlight was on the final table where doublencs outlasted zhivago2 to grab the $118K first place prize.

1st place:    doublencs ($118,186.60)
2nd place:    zhivago2 ($76,268.20)
3rd place:    Liiffe ($56,473.40)
4th place:    Laurra ($42,500.60)
5th place:    DNA2RNA ($29,692.20)

7th place:    daaaaaaaaaang7 ($13,390.60)
8th place:    Treadin Dank ($9,315.20)
9th place:    Dearman2 ($6,986.40)

$750K Guarantee
The biggest guarantee of the night on Full Tilt was one of the few tournaments on Sunday that did not find an increase in registration, oddly enough. The $750K guarantee still drew in a crowd of 4,180 players though, all with $200 + $16 in hand and ready for a night of intense online poker. The resulting prize pool was $836,000, and that allowed payouts to be made to the last 585 players in the event. When all was said and done, shiftzerg defeated kwickfishycake to grab more than $147K in first place money to go along with the weekly tournament title.

1st place:    shiftzerg ($147,629.24)
2nd place:    kwickfishycake ($89,368.40)
3rd place:    Luffy-san ($58,520.00)
4th place:    actionjunky32 ($45,980.00)
5th place:    cardlover69 ($34,526.80)
6th place:    Miwa Iverson ($25,581.60)
7th place:    MrAntoha ($19,228.00)
8th place:    porkmastachi ($15,048.00)
9th place:    Insomniac_pkr ($11,202.40)

The Sunday Mulligan
While settling in for a day of poker on Full Tilt, players took to the tables of the Sunday Mulligan, which required a $200 + $16 buy-in for the $200K guaranteed prize pool. When the buy-ins of the 1,277 players were tabulated, the pool rose to $255,400, which made for payouts for the last 135 players standing. At the final table, one of Full Tilt’s own pros, Michael Tureniec, made it to seventh place, but the final two players were UgotaBanana and IHuntItuShipIt battled and the former took down the first place prize of $56K.

1st place:    UgotaBanana ($56,188.00)
2nd place:    IHuntItuShipIt ($37,756.00)
3rd place:    whatastinker ($25,859.25)
4th place:    mestre_urubu ($20,751.25)
5th place:    doubledave22 ($15,656.02)
6th place:    Nairb09 ($11,493.00)
7th place:    MichaelTureniec ($7,406.60)
8th place:    elcapitanbeluga ($5,363.40)
9th place:    mattyv ($3,831.00)

$200K Double Deuce
The one tournament that always draws masses of players on Full Tilt on Sunday is the Double Deuce, which offers a $200K guarantee for the reasonable buy-in of only $20 + $2. There were 11,056 interested players this week, which boosted the prize pool a bit to where it landed at $221,120. That gave 1,350 players the opportunity to cash out of the tournament for a profit, but there were four five-figure payouts awaiting the top four finishers. And before it all wrapped, the heads-up battle between sns78 and Lucyds played out and found sns78 in the winner’s circle with more than $34K for the victory.

1st place:    sns78 ($34,273.60)
2nd place:    Lucyds ($23,217.60)
3rd place:    dsholmes ($16,362.88)
4th place:    cliffv123 ($11,763.58)
5th place:    brignt ($8,623.68)
6th place:    ihateobin ($6,191.36)
7th place:    screw head65 ($4,422.40)
8th place:    wintyara ($3,162.02)
9th place:    Stan_25 ($2,235.52)

UltimateBet


$200K Guaranteed

Players on UltimateBet look forward to the big guaranteed tournament each week, as the $200 + $15 buy-in promises the chance at a $200K prize pool. This week, registration was up and found 1,093 players at the virtual tables, which pushed the pool up to $218,600. That allowed payouts to be made to the last 108 players standing but left the top five spots open to players who would each be awarded five-figure payouts. Ultimately, the player who took the top prize, Carter “CKINGUSC” King happened to be one of the better known online poker players in the business, and the addition of the UB weekly title to his resume and $48K to his bankroll came as a shock to no one who knows King’s skills.

1st place:    CKINGUSC ($48,070.14)
2nd place:    DRUNKSAVAGE ($28,352.42)
3rd place:    MORRIGANE ($19,564.70)
4th place:    ARE THESE UTZ ($14,099.70)
5th place:    BONZO9876 ($11,695.10)
6th place:    THUNDER55555 ($9,509.10)
7th place:    LS2_POWER ($7,323.10)
8th place:    1GOLEAFSGOEH1 ($5,246.40)
9th place:    BOBBYFI ($3,716.20)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

The big Bodog offering on Sunday brought an increase in the registration numbers, as a total of 509 players signed up for the $150 + $12 tournament with the $100K guarantee. Though the prize pool didn’t make it beyond that number, players were given an overlay of more than $23K, which was a welcome addition to the pool. Ultimately, there were 63 players paid from that money, but the final table wound its way down to two players competing for the $25K first place prize. When it was all over, Balla686 defeated curtjer to take it down.

1st place:    Balla686 ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    curtjer ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    Clandestino ($9,500.00)
4th place:    XBen7 ($7,000.00)
5th place:    p0cket00 ($5,500.00)
6th place:    Ron2007 ($4,500.00)
7th place:    CohibaSiglo ($3,500.00)
8th place:    m2y ($2,200.00)
9th place:    JUST BLUFFIN ($1,700.00)
