Super Poker Sunday 03/14: Moorman Wins Brawl, Highway51 Grabs Sunday Million

Share this
The United States players were experiencing a bit of an “off” Sunday because of Daylight Savings Time, and though there seemed to be fewer players in some of the events on the Sunday major’s schedule, some actually saw an increase in registration. The changing of the clocks seemed to have little to do with it.

Only one tournament was missing from the schedule, and that was the $200K Double Deuce on Full Tilt, which was removed due to the ongoing similarly-priced MiniFTOPS. Everything else was business as usual, with the biggest prize of the week going to the winner of the PokerStars Sunday Million. Highway51 took it all the way to the finish line without cutting any deals and took home $271K for doing so. In the area of well-known players, Chris Moorman ended up winning the Sunday Brawl on Full Tilt Poker, which only adds to his already impressive list of tournament successes. And the only sponsored pro who made it to a final table on his sponsored site was David Pham, who finished in seventh place in the $750K Guarantee.

All of the results from the Sunday majors from March 14 are listed here.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

The first of the Sunday majors to start and the first to end brought players to the virtual tables for the $750K guarantee associated with the Warm-Up. While the registration numbers were down several hundred from the prior week, as would be the case in most of the Sunday events, the 4,594 players who brought buy-ins of $200 + $15 into action created a solid prize pool. There was a total of $918,800 for the players, though only the last 675 of them would see any of it. And in the end, with two six-figure payouts awaiting the last two players, they came to a financial agreement to divide the remaining money in half with $10K left over for the winner. When play finished, lu_tricolor beat CallMeIdiot to take down that $130K first place prize.

1st place:    lu_tricolor ($130,591.82)
2nd place:    CallMeIdiot ($120,591.82)
3rd place:    Mur917 ($75,801.00)
4th place:    King2307 ($51,912.20)
5th place:    1-ronnyr3 ($39,049.00)
6th place:    emiwarg ($29,861.00)
7th place:    F3dOrOv9191 ($20,673.00)
8th place:    Mollpan ($11,485.00)
9th place:    minisune ($7,350.00)

Sunday 1/4 Million
While almost every other tournament on the list of Sunday majors took a registration hit this week, the ¼ Million did the opposite by attracting 714 more players than the week before. The tournament with the $250K guarantee for the bargain basement buy-in of $10 + $1 drew 36,612 players to the tables this week, which pushed the prize pool up to $366,120. A whopping 5,400 finishers cashed out, but it was at the final table that donkslayer99 took down Welshboyo21 to claim the $30K first place prize; quite the payday for a relatively small investment.

1st place:    donkslayer99 ($30,336.30)
2nd place:    Welshboyo21 ($20,868.84)
3rd place:    andresgrg ($15,377.04)
4th place:    anthonyshark ($11,715.84)
5th place:    nadimBC ($8,054.64)
6th place:    UsualProto ($4,393.44)
7th place:    Swat Team 60 ($3,295.08)
8th place:    Superfizzy ($2,379.78)
9th place:    guntervansch ($1,739.07)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special
It is a special Sunday version of the Daily Eighty Grand, but it ups the ante each weekend with a $200K guarantee. The buy-in of $50 + $5 attracts quite a few players because of its stark contrast to so many $215 tournaments. And this was one of less than a handful of tournaments that saw an increase in registration this week, as 6,638 players came to the tables and created a prize pool of $331,900. A total of 990 players were paid from the prize money, but more than $41K awaited the ultimate winner, and when Yankee3333 defeated _TheP0t_, the former took that significant sum of money.

1st place:    Yankee3333 ($41,487.50)
2nd place:    _TheP0t_ ($28,145.12)
3rd place:    ynd! ($18,918.30)
4th place:    sixhigh6 ($15,267.40)
5th place:    skattefar ($11,948.40)
6th place:    kunkles28 ($8,629.40)
7th place:    HitUR2outer ($5,808.25)
8th place:    OMG_ZacEFRON ($3,816.85)
9th place:    igor67755 ($2,323.30)

Sunday Million
Registration took a dip this week for the Sunday Million, as the total number dropped more than 400 players. But no harm done because the biggest draw of all of the Sunday majors remained intact as 9,687 players ponied up the $200 + $15 necessary to take a crack at the $1.5 million guarantee. The resulting prize pool came to a sizable $1,937,400, which made payouts to the last 1,440 players possible. It was late into the night when the last table finally found its winner, and it happened when Highway51 defeated popimaiorca in only two hands of heads-up play to take down the $271K first place prize.

1st place:    Highway51 ($271,241.22)
2nd place:    popimaiorca ($197,614.80)
3rd place:    Soltari84 ($139,492.80)
4th place:    rakeinfools ($96,870.00)
5th place:    THE CUBE ($77,496.00)
6th place:    jfyjfy6 ($58,122.00)
7th place:    SingleFileD ($38,748.00)
8th place:    Snort4eva ($19,374.00)
9th place:    Klauss8s ($13,174.32)

Sunday 500
The Sunday 500 is the highest stakes buy-in of the Sunday majors, requiring $500 + $30 for a chance at the $500K guarantee. And most Sundays, it is the latest running of the tournaments, and this week was no exception with the event continuing particularly long. The tournament had an increase in registration, which stopped at 1,153, and that created a prize pool of $576,500 for the top 171 players. Team PokerStars Pro Veronica “Princesa” Dabul just missed the final table with an 11th place finish, and in the end, BrynKenney defeated hellzito to take down the first prize of $98K for the win.

1st place:    BrynKenney ($98,005.00)
2nd place:    hellzito ($72,062.50)
3rd place:    ducksholdup ($54,709.85)
4th place:    DoeBoyFre$h ($39,202.00)
5th place:    Prometheius R ($28,526.75)
6th place:    hoodini10 ($22,771.75)
7th place:    thedonator ($17,006.75)
8th place:    LarryBh ($11,241.75)
9th place:    BeSje ($6,226.20)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

First up on the Full Tilt Sunday offerings was, as usual, the Sunday Brawl with its $400K guarantee. The $240 + $16 buy-in gives players a crack at the prize pool but also at $40 bounties set on each player in the tournament, which adds excitement to the event. A total of 2,700 players were in attendance for the festivities this week, more than 200 less than the week before, but still enough to push the prize pool up to $540,000. That allowed payouts to the last 279 players in the tournament, and at the final table was a familiar name, as Chris “MoormanI” Moorman went on to defeat Towelfish and win the event to add another victory to an already long list of poker accomplishments.

1st place:    MoormanI ($109,620.00)
2nd place:    Towelfish ($70,740.00)
3rd place:    rdcrsn ($52,380.00)
4th place:    knluiy ($39,420.00)
5th place:    jornx ($27,540.00)
6th place:    paulpod13 ($18,360.00)
7th place:    ibininlondon ($12,420.00)
8th place:    Biggest Donkey ($8,640.00)
9th place:    RandomDonk ($6,480.00)

$750K Guarantee
In the biggest offering of the Full Tilt Sunday majors, the $750K Guarantee was available for a buy-in of the usual $200 + $16. A smaller crowd than the prior week brought 3,970 players to the tables, which bumped the prize pool up to $794,000. The final 522 players alive in the tournament were able to cash for more than the buy-in, but the big action was at the final table, where Full Tilt Pro David Pham came close to a victory but finished in seventh place. On to the heads-up battle, the two players made a chip-chop deal with some money set aside for the winner, and -zoopreme- became that winner by defeating brsavage.

1st place:    -zoopreme- ($115,517.85)
2nd place:    brsavage ($109,017.85)
3rd place:    TheAssassinato ($55,580.00)
4th place:    welshwizard9 ($43,828.80)
5th place:    pokerlogic1 ($32,871.60)
6th place:    shlomibh78 ($24,375.80)
7th place:    David Pham ($18,262.00)
8th place:    dwnbytheriver ($14,292.00)
9th place:    timrank ($10,639.60)

The Sunday Mulligan
A few extra players than usual took to the Mulligan this week for the $200K guarantee. There were 1,321 players, and when their $200 + $16 buy-ins were collected and totaled, the prize pool came to $264,200. As the tournament played down, the final 135 players made it into the money, and at the end of the event, bigdogpckt5s beat out LeoEleven to take down the $58K first place prize.

1st place:    bigdogpckt5s ($58,124.00)
2nd place:    LeoEleven ($36,988.00)
3rd place:    xROUNDER12x ($26,750.25)
4th place:    TheStein ($21,466.25)
5th place:    arsenal46 ($16,195.46)
6th place:    PTAYLOR ($11,889.00)
7th place:    g_peti ($7,661.80)
8th place:    AmazingMiss ($5,548.20)
9th place:    Cobalt56 ($3,963.00)

$200K Double Deuce
In light of the running of the MiniFTOPS series of tournaments, the $200K Double Deuce was cancelled for the week. MiniFTOPS offers tournaments with fairly low buy-ins - only 1/10th of the price of a regular FTOPS series - and Full Tilt Poker seemed to want to focus players’ attention on those tournament offerings rather than the $20 + $2 Double Deuce. The tournament will return to the normal schedule at the conclusion of MiniFTOPS.

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

The crowds for the biggest event offered each Sunday on UltimateBet seem to be consistently hovering over the 1K mark, and this week was no different. There were 1,066 players who bought into the tournament for $200 + $15 with their eyes on the $200K guarantee, but the buy-ins tallied up to $213,200, which was even better. Payouts were reserved for the top finishing 99 players, but the big action was at the final table. Well-known player Cliff “JOHNNYBAX” Josephy ended up finishing in fifth place, and AKAT11 and DA MAD HATTER battled it out in the heads-up portion of the tournament for more than $47K in first place money, and that amount ultimately went to AKAT11.

1st place:    AKAT11 ($47,607.56)
2nd place:    DA MAD HATTER ($28,462.20)
3rd place:    THE_DOSE101 ($19,294.60)
4th place:    MACHIAVILIAN ($13,751.40)
5th place:    JOHNNYBAX ($11,619.40)
6th place:    NOCTUS ($9,487.40)
7th place:    BRSAVAGE ($7,355.40)
8th place:    BRAINWASHER ($5,223.40)
9th place:    MLNHSR ($3,624.00)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

After a bigger turnout than usual last week, the big Sunday event on Bodog drew only 463 players this week, nearly 50 less than the week before. But with a $150 + $12 buy-in and a $100K guarantee, players were pretty confident of a solid overlay and turned out for the tournament. When it was all tallied, the overlay was $69,450 for the players, and a total of 63 of them went deep enough to cash in on it. Ultimately, it was Long Chalk who defeated hahaustink to win the event and grab the $25K first place prize.

1st place:    Long Chalk ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    hahaustink ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    JohnnyGstaks ($9,500.00)
4th place:    grayzee9 ($7,000.00)
5th place:    fatcamp ($5,500.00)
6th place:    Paz5050 ($4,500.00)
7th place:    vinnyb9 ($3,500.00)
8th place:    grafyx ($2,200.00)
9th place:    teller10 ($1,700.00)
