Super Poker Sunday 03/28: Jroszkow Wins Car and Cash with PokerStars Points

Share this
All online poker websites tout their points systems. Points are earned for play on the cash game tables and in tournaments, and those points can be used for tournament entries and prizes. But PokerStars allows players to build up those points and enter its Turbo Takedown on the last Sunday of each month. For 3,000 Frequent Player Points, players can enter the $1 million freeroll, one that pays the 5,000 top-finishing players and offers five-figure payouts to the last of the final tablists. And the ultimate winner of the tournament takes home a luxury car, an Audi TT, which is exactly what happened for Jroszkow this week. What an added perk for accumulating those points!

In addition to the Turbo Takedown, all of the regular Sunday majors were in full force on March 28, and a number of players ended the month with solid finishes and prestigious victories. As usual, the biggest of the payouts came from the PokerStars Sunday Million, where tony6733 dominated his final table and walked away with $267,640.62 for doing so. The team pros on various sites were few and far between in the late stages of tournaments this week, though Team PokerStars member Vanessa Rousso made it to 11th place in the Sunday 500 and Full Tilt Pro Stefan Rapp made the final table of the $750,000 Guarantee on Full Tilt and finished in sixth place.

The week in numbers and names is for those who read on.

PokerStars


Sunday Warm-Up

At the top of the list for the highlighted Sunday tournaments on PokerStars, the Warm-Up kicked things off with its $750K guarantee. Willing to pony up the $200 + $15 buy-in (or less via a satellite victory) were 4,691 players, nearly the same number who attended last week’s festivities. When the prize pool was totaled, it came to $936,200, and the top 675 players who survived the money bubble received payouts. But it was at the final table that FIGARO10 took down well-known poker player Dan “djk123” Kelly to grab the $147K first place prize.

1st place:    FIGARO10 ($147,187.03)

8th place:    Firaldo87 ($11,727.50)
9th place:    Coltaine ($7,505.60)

Sunday 1/4 Million
Though the ¼ Million remains the most popular tournament on the internet, registration took a dive this week as about 1,400 fewer players turned out than did the week before. Even so, the enticing $250K guarantee for the low buy-in of only $10 + $1 brought 34,892 players out for the event, which actually made for a $348,920 prize pool. Payouts were made to the top 5,400 players, and when the tournament made its way to heads-up play, it was Knot Stoopid and xtas65 in battle until the former won the event and walked away with nearly $29K.

1st place:    Knot Stoopid ($28,911.08)
2nd place:    xtas65 ($19,888.44)
3rd place:    LDOUSN ($14,654.64)
4th place:    flav ($11,165.44)
5th place:    Zonnywhoop ($7,676.24)
6th place:    Tnoyes ($4,187.04)
7th place:    TheMatadorCC ($3,140.28)
8th place:    cajun6587 ($2,267.98)
9th place:    Big-Poker27 ($1,657.37)

$1,000,000 Turbo Takedown
The end of the month brought the special offering for players: a $1 million freeroll for anyone able to qualify or buy-in with 3,000 Frequent Player Points. The Turbo Takedown not only offers that million dollars but an Audi TT luxury car for the player who takes first place. Players lined up for the opportunity to play in the event each month, and this time it found 18,485 players in the running. And out of that number, a whopping 5,000 of them walked away with free money from PokerStars, though it was at the final table that the last four players came to a financial arrangement, and in the end, Jroszkow won the event, $46K, and the car.

1st place:    Jroszkow ($46,000.00 + Audi TT)
2nd place:    analena85 ($35,169.11)
3rd place:    Munken_28 ($41,028.15)
4th place:    Econ Adager ($32,802.74)
5th place:    DareYou2Call ($20,000.00)
6th place:    equinespy ($17,500.00)
7th place:    tmb_bulevar ($15,000.00)
8th place:    pokerfun4321 ($12,500.00)
9th place:    Poker Drum ($10,000.00)

D.E.G. Sunday Special
Its official new title is starting to catch on, as the special Sunday edition of the Daily Eighty Grand and its $200K guarantee find solid registration week after week. The $200K guarantee for the bargain price of $50 + $5 brought a total of 6,607 players to the tables, which made for an actual prize pool of $330,350. Out of those numbers, payment was made to the final 990 players, but when action reached the final table, it was a fight to the finish as BizBills ultimately took it down by defeating johnscon74, and the first place prize for BizBills was $35K after a two-way deal.

1st place:    BizBills ($35,000.00)
2nd place:    johnscon74 ($34,311.25)
3rd place:    I Spew Chips ($18,829.95)
4th place:    $trateGema ($15,196.10)

8th place:    BrinzaSok ($3,799.02)
9th place:    calexc123 ($2,312.45)

Sunday Million

The biggest tournament on the internet each Sunday found itself with a slight uptick in the number of players looking to cash in on it this week, as there were 9,371 in line for pieces of the $1.5 million guarantee. And when the $200 + $15 buy-ins were tallied, that prize pool was an even more impressive $1,874,200. After the money bubble burst at 1,350 players and the final table ultimately approached, it was tony6733 who took his initial lead at the table and soared right on through to the finish line, finally taking care of He1en ke11er to grab a massive first place prize of more than $267K.

1st place:    tony6733 ($267,640.62)
2nd place:    He1en ke11er ($196,791.00)
3rd place:    kvnok88 ($139,534.19)

8th place:    tinyeyez ($20,616.20)
9th place:    cwp394 ($13,119.40)

Sunday 500

It seems that only months ago, the Sunday 500 struggled to meet the guarantee, but registration has been slowly but surely increasing of late. The $500K guarantee and the higher stakes buy-in of $500 + $30 attracts a solid list of players, this time 1,089 of them. The resulting prize pool was $544,500, out of which the final 162 players were paid. Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa “LadyMaverick” Rousso came close to the final table but finished in 11th place, and as the tournament progressed toward the finish line, it was raphou who defeated AreTheseUtz to grab more than $92K in first place prize money.

1st place:    raphou ($92,565.00)
2nd place:    AreTheseUtz ($68,062.50)
3rd place:    Jhonny_br ($51,673.05)

8th place:    joe E scar ($10,617.75)
9th place:    p0cket00 ($5,880.60)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

Each week, the Brawl kicks off the Full Tilt Sunday majors in grand fashion with a $400K guarantee and unique bounty format, as players buy-in for $240 + $16 and have the opportunity to grab $40 for each player they eliminate from the tournament. This week, there were 2,901 players up for the challenge, a number that jumped several hundred players from the previous week. That brought the prize pool to $580,200 and payouts for the top 279 players. When the field thinned to the final table and ultimately heads-up play, it was oopsULu412 who defeated NLBrewZ to take down the title and first place prize of nearly $118K.

1st place:    oopsULu412 ($117,780.60)

9th place:    KARAHHHYO ($6,962.40)

$750,000 Million Guarantee
After last week’s break in the usual action for an upped buy-in and increased guarantee, the $750K guarantee was back with its regular $200 + $16 buy-in. There were 4,006 players up for the challenge, though only 585 of them ultimately received any payment for their efforts. And in the end, Full Tilt Pro Stefan Rapp came close to a win but finished in sixth place at the final table, and the last three players made a deal for the money left at that point, after which BOOP BOOP NEB went on to defeat Sebago2811 in the heads-up portion of the night to claim more than $141K in first place money.

1st place:    BOOP BOOP NEB ($113,270.20)

The Sunday Mulligan
In the midst of all of the Full Tilt action on Sundays, many players take the opportunity to compete in the Mulligan with its $200K guarantee. For the average Sunday price of $200 + $16, there were 1,288 players involved, which made for an actual prize pool of $257,600. As the field thinned throughout the evening, the money bubble finally burst and allowed the last 135 players to cash, but it was Optimisten who ultimately defeated Cmoney3 to win the tournament and grab more than $56K for the hard-fought victory.

1st place:    Optimisten ($56,672.00)

$200K Double Deuce
The best deal of the Sunday majors on Full Tilt saw a jump in registration this week, as almost 700 more players took their chances this week in a $20 + $2 competition that brought a $200K guarantee with it. The actual prize pool was then calculated to be $225,120, which allowed payouts for the top 1,350 finishers. At the final table, the field was reduced to four players when a financial arrangement was made before playing it out, and it was the victory of Hygro over Ylaan that ended the tournament with Hygro taking home nearly $27K with the event title.

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

Again, the most popular offering among the Sunday online poker players on UltimateBet saw its numbers grow. A total of 1,083 players registered for the $200K guarantee, and when the $200 + $14 buy-ins were put together, the prize pool actually came to $216,600. From that stash, the last 99 players standing were paid and rewarded for their deep runs, but it was STICKYPIFF14 who beat out RYANWELCH16 in the end to take home more than $48K and the weekly title for the victory.

For two weeks running, the big Bodog Sunday tournament brought 463 players to the tables. This week, an additional three joined the ranks to make for a total of 466 players looking to take a shot at the $100K guarantee. After the $150 + $12 buy-ins were tabulated, Bodog added to the prize pool to make up the difference, and the $100K guarantee was divvied up amongst the top 63 finishers.
