Super Poker Sunday 04/11: THE__D__RY Takes Down Sunday Brawl Title

Share this
If it seems like the list of Sunday majors keeps growing, that would be correct. This week, another new tournament was added to the list of highlighted events, and again it happened courtesy of PokerStars. The Sunday 2nd Chance offers a significant $250K guarantee and fits in nicely with the others that major up the weekend roster. With that and the D.N.G. Sunday Special, PokerStars now offers six major tournaments each Sunday.

Most tournaments this week stayed at their usual registration numbers, though UltimateBet saw a reasonable increase after a sizable decrease last week. But usually one of the most popular tournaments on the schedule, the PokerStars Sunday Million, saw its biggest registration downswing in quite some time. Though the loss of more than 1,100 players didn’t keep the prize pool from sinking below the guarantee - or even coming close to it, for that matter - the decrease was significant enough to note. But with that, along with the fact that the final five players in the Sunday Million made a deal that kept any of them from winning more than the usual $200K, the winner of that tournament, kixelsyd, still took home more than $160K. With the second place finisher taking home $167K, those two payouts made for the biggest of the week, which is par for the course.

The most well-known of the week’s winners was Danny “THE__D__RY” Ryan, who took down the Sunday Brawl title. And while some of the other names at the final tables were somewhat familiar, none of them included team pros from their own sites, which has become more rare as sites sign more pros.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

The first on the ever-growing Sunday lineup of PokerStars tournaments started with a solid crowd for the Warm-Up. With $750K guaranteed for the standard $200 + $15 buy-in, registration climbed to 4,588 players, which pushed the prize pool up to a notable $917,600. That allowed the last 675 players to be paid in the end, but six-figure payouts awaited the top two finishers. And when they played it out, JoseGuti was able to defeat jcgoheels to grab nearly $144K in prize money.

1st place:    JoseGuti ($143,955.23)
2nd place:    jcgoheels ($106,900.40)
3rd place:    Rigboz ($75,702.00)

8th place:    ague007 ($11,470.00)
9th place:    thebirdman84 ($7,340.80)

Sunday 1/4 Million
The best deal for the money, as always, comes courtesy of the ¼ Million on PokerStars each Sunday, where a $10 + $1 buy-in guarantees players a shot at a $250K prize pool. When the registration stopped at 32,292 players, so did the prize pool at $322,920. When the field was reduced to 5,400 players, all were looking at a payout of some sort, though the final four would find five-figure payouts in their Stars accounts. The final two players standing were manon5002 and sickben, and the former defeated the latter to take win the title and nearly $27K in prize money.

1st place:    manon5002 ($26,758.80)
2nd place:    sickben ($18,406.44)
3rd place:    santijoaquin ($13,562.64)
4th place:    smuxen ($10,333.44)
5th place:    cyk925 ($7,104.24)
6th place:    Birne1208 ($3,875.04)
7th place:    GRIVAS-D ($2,906.28)
8th place:    par286 ($2,098.98)
9th place:    FcFaz ($1,533.87)

D.N.G. Sunday Special
As one of the newest additions to the highlighted Sunday majors roster, the Daily Ninety Grand Sunday edition, known as the D.N.G. Sunday Special, is drawing solid crowds week to week. Its fair buy-in of $50 + $5 and $300K guarantee brought a total of 6,849 players to the tables this week, which made for a prize pool of $342,450.00. After the top 1,080 players were paid, it all came down to the final two who battled it out for the top prize of $42K, and thabirdman defeated sporic13 to win it.

1st place:    thabirdman ($42,123.78)
2nd place:    sporic13 ($28,526.08)
3rd place:    ali1010 ($19,177.20)
4th place:    MrChash2006 ($15,752.70)
5th place:    sergiod ($12,328.20)
6th place:    goodvibe1 ($8,903.70)
7th place:    DeJot89 ($5,992.87)
8th place:    rkruok ($3,938.17)
9th place:    stan34powa ($2,397.15)

Sunday Million
For reasons unknown, the Sunday Million took a severe dive in this week’s registration numbers. The decrease was more than 1,100 players, and while the $1.5 million guarantee was still nicely surpassed, the sharp decrease was quite odd. Regardless, the 8,603 players and their $200 + $15 buy-ins produced a prize pool of $1,720,600 for the top 1,260 players. And at the final table, the last five players standing came to a chip-chop deal for the remainder of the prize money. Ultimately, the second place finisher took home more than the winner, but kixelsyd did beat xxndavisxx in the heads-up portion of the tournament to win the title.

1st place:  kixelsyd ($160,215.83)
2nd place:  xxndavisxx ($167,775.38)
3rd place:  Machiavilian ($145,380.57)
4th place:  keckboss ($127,550.07)
5th place:  Methos_ST ($121,046.68)
6th place:  Dusnumbri ($51,618.00)
7th place:  just_two_ace ($34,412.00)
8th place:  PrinceAndrew ($18,926.60)
9th place:  Wu2kayY18 ($13,334.65)

Sunday 500
The highest stakes offering of most Sundays is the Sunday 500 with its $500 + $30 buy-in and $500K guarantee. This week, there were 1,037 players, which was shy of last week’s number but still exceeded the guarantee and gave the players a $518,500 prize pool. In the end, there were 153 players paid, and Team PokerStars Pro Veronica “Princesa” Dabul just missed the final table by a few spots. The last two players standing in the field of well-knowns were squee451 and MONSTER_DONG, and the latter succumbed to give squee451 the weekly title and more than $89K in prize money.

1st place:    squee451 ($89,493.10)
2nd place:    MONSTER_DONG ($64,812.50)
3rd place:    Skammes ($49,257.50)
4th place:    roi kin23 ($36,087.60)
5th place:    sil_eye_hand ($25,665.75)
6th place:    roo_400 ($20,480.75)
7th place:    moneytaker85 ($15,295.75)
8th place:    WiLDmAn75 ($10,110.75)
9th place:    smerks ($5,703.50)

Sunday 2nd Chance
It was the latest addition to the highlighted tournaments on PokerStars but has been popular for quite some time with players. The 2nd Chance event offers players a late-starting tournament for those who bust from other events, and the $200 + $15 buy-in offers a solid $250K guarantee. With 1,522 players, the guarantee was surpassed in lieu of a $304,400 prize pool, and the top 171 players were paid from that. In the end, I’am_Sound was able to defeat jeanphidh74 to take down the top prize of nearly $55K.

1st place:    I’am_Sound ($54,913.76)
2nd place:    jeanphidh74 ($39,724.20)
3rd place:    DeuceBuster ($30,440.00)
4th place:    Antoshka ($22,830.00)
5th place:    kimokh ($15,981.00)
6th place:    uncledrkmeat ($12,937.00)
7th place:    GtC[13]FFVll ($9,893.00)
8th place:    LockdownTex ($6,849.00)
9th place:    SOXFAN83 ($4,251.60)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

As the Sunday majors kicked off on Full Tilt Poker, the Sunday Brawl was the first to get underway. A solid crowd of 2,818 players sought some of the $400K guarantee and the bounty action on each player that came with the $240 + $16 buy-in. And when it was all tallied, the prize pool came to a very respectable $563,600 to be split amongst the top 279 players. The final table saw a lot of action and the final three players strike a deal for the remainder of the prize money. Thus, the third place finisher was paid more than second place, but Danny “THE__D__RY” Ryan ultimately came out on top with more than $85K for the victory.

1st place:    THE__D__RY ($85,165.66)
2nd place:    pinchame ($75,235.87)

8th place:    -GROMOV DMITRY- ($9,017.60)
9th place:    Xnu ($6,763.20)

$750,000K Guarantee

It is the biggest guarantee in the Full Tilt offerings list on Sundays, and its $750K guarantee usually draws a solid crowd of good players. This week, that crowd included 3,828 players, and when their $200 + $16 buy-ins were tallied, the prize pool crept over the guarantee and landed at $765,600. The top 522 finishers were paid, and at0247 plowed through the field and defeated omgfml2 to take down the sizable $135K first place prize.

1st place:    at0247 ($135,549.48)
2nd place:    omgfml2 ($81,919.20)

The Sunday Mulligan
The staple on the list of Full Tilt Sunday majors offered its usual $200K guarantee for the $200 + $16 buy-in, and there were a total of 1,260 interested players this week. That made for a complete prize pool of $252,000, which would consist of payouts for the last 135 players in the tournament. And in the end, mralan2950 was able to defeat Drrng in the heads-up portion of the event to grab the title and more than $55K in prize money.

1st place:    mralan2950 ($55,440.00)

8th place:    ALLinwithdaBEST ($5,292.00)
9th place:    atlantidecity ($3,780.00)

$200K Double Deuce
With so many Sunday tournaments requiring hundreds of dollars in buy-ins, the Double Deuce is Full Tilt’s way of saying that all are welcome to the Sunday majors. The $200K guarantee is set up for anyone with $20 + $2 to buy in, and this week there were 10,378 takers. That created an actual prize pool of $207,560 and payouts for the top 1,350 finishers. When it was all said and done, the last two players standing were TooTallMcGraw and MrGERIN, and the former was able to claim the last of the chips to win the event and take home $32K for it.

2nd place:    MrGERIN ($21,793.80)

8th place:    MSPnuts ($2,968.11)
9th place:    XXKKHY ($2,098.43)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

After experiencing a significant decrease in the number of players last week, the biggest UltimateBet tournament of the week found itself back in black this week. Registration found a total of 1,044 players in the $200 + $15 buy-in tournament, which surpassed the $200K guarantee with a $208,800 prize pool. The top 99 players were able to take pieces of that cash, but it was at the final table that JSHARK4 and MATT THE WALL tangled in a heads-up battle that found the former able to take it down and grab more than $46K in first place prize money.

9th place:    KEEFKING420 ($3,549.60)

Bodog

The biggest offering of the Bodog Sunday found itself back on the rise again this week with a significant increase in registration. A total of 475 players signed up for the $150 + $12 buy-in event with the $100K guarantee. While there was still no chance of the buy-ins surpassing that guarantee, it still offered players a substantial overlay, this time of $28,750. And after the top 63 players cashed and the final table played out, it was GloryBox who succumbed to BadReception in the heads-up battle, and the latter took home $25K for the win.
