Super Poker Sunday 03/21: Chad Brown Just Misses Team Pro Victory on PokerStars

Share this
It was a Sunday filled with big money for players competing in the big Sunday tournaments. Though spring was nearing and weather was enticing many players to spend time outdoors and enjoying the warmer season, players still sidled up to their computers and took to the virtual felt to compete for the possibility of winning life-changing money.

Several team pros from the various sites did well this week, most notably Chad “ChadBrownPRO” Brown of Team PokerStars. He finished in third place in the Sunday 500 after leading the pack in the final stretches of the tournament. And in the Sunday Brawl on Full Tilt, two of the team pros made the final table where Marco Liesy finished in eighth place and Martin Klaeser ended up in seventh. While weeks tend to go by without team pros running deep in these events, the strong finishes were duly noted. *Editor's note: endlessj83 that took down the Full Tilt Monthly Million is one of PokerWork's own.

Also noted was the biggest win of the week, which went to the winner of the Sunday Million on PokerStars. Mr Brizza steadily worked through the tough field at the final table and grabbed nearly $244K for winning the tournament. The next biggest payout of the night went to endlessj83, who won the $1 Million Guarantee special high-stakes tournament on Full Tilt. But one player that must be recognized is Mikey0690, who not only finished fourth in the PokerStars Sunday Million but simultaneously finished in ninth place in the D.E.G. Sunday Special; two final tables in one night was quite the accomplishment.

Sunday Warm-Up

One of the most popular tournaments each Sunday brings a $750K guarantee, and this week the Warm-Up also brought a slight rise in the number of players. There were 4,695 players who chose to kick off their Sunday action with this tournament, and that number combined with the $200 + $15 buy-ins brought the prize pool to $939,000. Out of that number, there were 675 payments made to the last players in the tournament, and it was at the final table that TheConcept79 made it through a tough battle with weirol and came out on top, taking home more than $147K for the victory.

1st place:    TheConcept79 ($147,310.32)

Sunday 1/4 Million
The one tournament that remains popular week after week and draws consistent crowds numbering in the tens of thousands is the ¼ Million with its $250K guarantee for the low buy-in of $10 + $1. There were 36,299 interested parties this week, which made for an actual prize pool of $362,990 and allowed payment for the last 5,400 players in the event. The newest member of the PokerStars online pro team, former pro golfer Dusty “Leatherass9” Schmidt, made his way to 16th place in the tournament, but it was at the final table that Eenink scored the top prize of more than $30K by defeating Gibb Stutz for the win.

1st place:    Eenink ($30,095.27)
2nd place:    Gibb Stutz ($20,690.43)

Daily Eighty Grand Sunday Special

This special version of the Daily Eighty Grand consistently finds a solid group of players each week but wasn’t listed as one of the Sunday majors until this week. Finally, its new name as the D.E.G. Sunday Special was categorized in the group of big Sunday events, and its registration numbers rose once again. With a buy-in of only $50 + $5 and a guarantee of $200K, the tournament attracted 6,783 players, which took the prize pool to $339,150. A total of 990 players were paid from the pool, and the heads-up battle in the end resulted in the final prize money split by the two top players, so winner supiii and second place finisher benton24 each took home more than $35K.

1st place:    supiii ($35,578.74)
2nd place:    benton24 ($35,578.74)
3rd place:    AbB100 ($19,331.55)
4th place:    BomBallin ($15,600.90)
5th place:    theha ($12,209.40)
6th place:    lancob ($8,817.90)
7th place:    horakpeti ($5,935.12)
8th place:    qucumba ($3,900.22)
9th place:    Mikey0690 ($2,374.05)

Sunday Million
As other tournaments saw an increase in the number of players, the Sunday Million saw a decrease, which is unusual as it typically follows the overall registration trends. Nevertheless, there were 9,235 players willing to put up the $200 + $15 for a chance at the $1.5 million guarantee, which ended up pushing the prize pool to where it landed at $1,847,000. That was enough to afford payouts for the top 1,350 players and still reserve six-figure payouts for the top three players. But when it came down to the final two who were nearly even in chips, a financial agreement was made to split the money evenly and reserve $30K for the winner. After a fairly brief match, Mr Brizza took it down and grabbed $243,843.30 for the win.

1st place:    Mr Brizza ($243,843.30)
2nd place:    allaces43 ($213,843.30)
3rd place:    renassence ($137,509.15)
4th place:    Mikey0690 ($92,350.00)
5th place:    elcoysa ($73,880.00)
6th place:    boccakill ($55,410.00)
7th place:    newwavepoker ($36,940.00)
8th place:    Taska85 ($20,317.00)
9th place:    jackmeplz69 ($12,929.00)

Sunday 500
It is always one of the latest tournaments running on Sunday night into Monday morning, and this week was the same, as the final table battles were intense and ran quite long in some cases. The action began much earlier in the day with 1,058 players buying in for $500 + $30, which brought the prize pool just past the $500K guarantee to $529,000. The money bubble burst at 153 players, and when the final table was reached, it was Team PokerStars Pro Chad Brown making a run for the title. He lost his position atop the leaderboard during three-handed play, though, and finished in third place. From there, jakoon1985 was able to defeat Marinersheep to take down the first prize of more than $91K.

1st place:    jakoon1985 ($91,305.40)
2nd place:    Marinersheep ($66,125.00)
3rd place:    ChadBrownPRO ($50,255.00)
4th place:    GoGators86 ($36,818.40)
5th place:    BBOY3110 ($26,185.50)
6th place:    punisher03 ($20,895.50)
7th place:    DA DONG ($15,605.50)
8th place:    Lobo13er ($10,315.50)
9th place:    bobboufl11 ($5,819.00)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

The first of the Sunday majors on Full Tilt to start was, as always, the first to wrap up. The $240 + $16 tournament offered a $400K guarantee for the players, as well as $40 bounties on each competitor to make for numerous ways to win. There were 2,533 players who came to the tables, and though the number was again less than the week before, it still brought the prize pool to $506,600, well over the guarantee. That allowed for the last 279 players standing to be paid. When it came down to the final table, there were two Full Tilt Pros in the action, and Marco Liesy finished in eighth and Martin Klaeser in seventh place. But it was deuceballz who took the title after beating ColdNuts99 for first place and nearly $103K.

1st place:    deuceballz ($102,839.80)
2nd place:    ColdNuts99 ($66,364.60)
3rd place:    Caustic One ($49,140.20)
4th place:    Flying Smile ($36,981.80)
5th place:    OGURII ($25,836.60)
6th place:    Ladbrokes ($17,224.40)
7th place:    Martin Klaeser ($11,651.80)
8th place:    Marco Liesy ($8,105.60)
9th place:    poker_shark0920 ($6,079.20)

$1 Million Guarantee
The last of the tournaments to wrap out of the Full Tilt Sunday events was the $1 Million Guarantee. Every so often, the $750K Guarantee ups the guarantee to a million and ups the buy-in to $500 + $35 for a special high-stakes opportunity for players up to the challenge. This week, there were 2,218 takers, and the registration increased the prize pool to $1,109,000. The final 351 players were paid from it, but it was at the final table where endlessj83 finally took down Issalloverbeby and took home $180K from the financial agreement made by the two players.

1st place:    endlessj83 ($180,123.24)
2nd place:    Issalloverbeby ($148,196.21)
3rd place:    THUGer ($81,733.30)
4th place:    sekren ($65,209.20)
5th place:    katterrell ($49,350.50)
6th place:    postal_pete ($35,488.00)
7th place:    Mabubbles ($26,061.50)
8th place:    L0stKeyS420 ($20,405.60)
9th place:    RandomFish666 ($15,526.00)

The Sunday Mulligan
Consistent growth for the past few weeks was a sign of the popularity of the Sunday Mulligan. The $200 + $16 buy-in tournament boasted of a $200K guarantee but brought 1,352 players to the tables to create a $270,400 prize pool. Though only the top 135 players received any compensation for their efforts in the event, it was at the final table that several players took down significant prizes. The biggest of them went to Viktor, who took home more than $59K for defeating UgotaBanana in the heads-up portion of the tournament.

1st place:    Viktor ($59,488.00)
2nd place:    UgotaBanana ($37,856.00)
3rd place:    ChAtBan ($27,378.00)
4th place:    touch the monk ($21,970.00)
5th place:    flip123077 ($16,575.52)
6th place:    aaaFRANCESCOzzz ($12,168.00)
7th place:    gysel05 ($7,841.60)
8th place:    swool ($5,678.40)
9th place:    YourTimeIsUp ($4,056.00)

$200K Double Deuce

After a slight hiatus the previous week to allow players the opportunity to focus on the MiniFTOPS tournaments, the tournament was back in full force. The Double Deuce required only $20 + $2 to compete for the $200K guarantee, but with 10,566 entrants, the actual prize pool jumped to $211,320. After the field thinned considerably, the last 1,350 players found their way into the money, and at the final table, it was hawkjb1 who defeated CristalNdaCup to win the tournament and take home almost $33K for the win.

1st place:    hawkjb1 ($32,754.60)
2nd place:    CristalNdaCup ($22,188.60)
3rd place:    RunLikeAChettah ($15,637.68)
4th place:    wolfcard ($11,242.22)
5th place:    getano100 ($8,241.48)
6th place:    bamtschi ($5,916.96)
7th place:    paz5050 ($4,226.40)
8th place:    MichaelHirte ($3,021.88)
9th place:    doubletruck ($2,136.44)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

It was another solid week for the big UltimateBet Sunday tournament, as the trend seems to be that registration is continuing to eclipse the $200K guarantee week after week of late. This week, there were 1,047 players who bought in for $200 + $15, which created an actual prize pool of $209,400. As usual, though, that pool would be split amongst the final 99 people in the tournament, and it would come down to the final table players to grab the largest portion of it. Recognizable player THE_D__R__Y was able to put another final table on his long resume of poker accomplishments by finishing fifth, but it was SALTTHEEARTH who beat out RUBINB to take down the weekly title and nearly $47K in prize money.

1st place:    SALTTHEEARTH ($46,759.02)
2nd place:    RUBINB ($27,954.90)
3rd place:    DARKHAWK-2000 ($18,950.70)
4th place:    RKRUOK ($13,506.30)
5th place:    THE_D__R__Y ($11,412.30)
6th place:    THXSIR ($9,318.30)
7th place:    ZESTFULYCLEAN ($7,224.30)
8th place:    ROCKNROLLAZ ($5,130.30)
9th place:    SHOVENPRAY ($3,559.80)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

Sometimes it seems as if the same exact players compete each week in the big Bodog Sunday tournament. No one compared the player list, but registration showed 463 players in the tournament this week, the same exact number as the week before. And again, when the $150 + $12 buy-ins were tallied for the $100K guarantee, there was an overlay of nearly $70K for the players. After the final 63 wound up in the money, it was Ron2007 and limon who took it all the way to heads-up, with the former defeating the latter to take home the $25K first place prize.

1st place:    Ron2007 ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    limon ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    quietwinner ($9,500.00)
4th place:    karatekid06 ($7,000.00)
5th place:    Beatty Boy ($5,500.00)
6th place:    jchimix ($4,500.00)
7th place:    Eeman2004 ($3,500.00)
8th place:    DLetterman ($2,200.00)
9th place:    OGHowie ($1,700.00)
