Super Poker Sunday 04/18: ElMastermind and speedy0308 Take Top Sunday Payouts

Share this
Sometimes, it’s not about the big names or familiar players. The nature of the game allows for anyone to win, and this week, there were very few recognizable names at the final tables, which made room for others to stake their claim to that fame and fortune. It is what keeps the players coming to the online tournament poker tables.

The biggest winner of the week was, as usual, the winner of the PokerStars Sunday Million. Despite a three-way deal made toward the end of the tournament for even money, there was an additional $30,000 on the line which eventually went to speedy0308, making that player’s prize nearly $206K. But close behind on the scale of impressive wins was the Full Tilt Poker $1 Million Guarantee, as the once-per-month offering of a high-stakes tournament found its last three players making a deal but ElMastermind coming through for the win to grab nearly $177K in first place money. No one can say if those payouts were life-changing for either player, but not many can argue that those are impressive numbers.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

The number of options for players on PokerStars each Sunday seems to keep growing, but some things remain the same, like the Warm-Up. With its sturdy $750K guarantee and $200 + $15 buy-in, the players lined up to get in. When registration stopped, there were 4,534 players at the tables, which made for an exact prize pool of $906,800 and payouts for the top 675 finishers. In the end, it came down to fazi608 and iveygotstaks in the heads-up battle, and the former took it down to grab more than $142K in prize money to go with the weekly title.

1st place:    fazi608 ($142,260.89)
2nd place:    iveygotstaks ($105,642.20)
3rd place:    Demosthen3s ($74,811.00)
4th place:    Sh1LLa ($51,234.20)
5th place:    ladub40 ($38,539.00)
6th place:    jaaaaaaack ($29,471.00)
7th place:    murallin ($20,403.00)
8th place:    phibrigin ($11,335.00)
9th place:    dsnka ($7,254.40)

Sunday 1/4 Million
Another week, another dip in the numbers for the Quarter Million event on PokerStars. Despite this being the cheapest option for Sunday majors players, the registration number dropped again this week. Though the $250K guarantee was still surpassed by a substantial margin, it is confusing that the best buy of the big guarantees - only $10 + $1 for the chance at it - is struggling at all. In any event, there were 31,514 players in the game, and the exact prize pool was $315,140, which was split amongst the top 4,500 finishers. And when it was all over, MeFishUShark defeated Strigo01 to take home more than $28K for the small investment.

1st place:    MeFishUShark ($28,389.27)
2nd place:    Strigo01 ($19,507.16)
3rd place:    ech64 ($14,181.30)
4th place:    oh duuude ($11,029.90)
5th place:    jettrunyon ($7,878.50)
6th place:    rich555 ($4,727.10)
7th place:    The_Chapal ($3,151.40)
8th place:    massstunts ($2,363.55)
9th place:    korted ($1,575.70)

D.N.G. Sunday Special
With the exception of the ¼ Million tournament, the D.N.G. is the best buy of all of the Sunday majors, offering a $300K guarantee for the relatively low buy-in of $50 + $5. And a total of 6,730 players were up for the challenge this week, which actually created a prize pool of $336,500. As the event played down, the last 990 players standing found themselves in the money, and though it took awhile to find a winner, it was taaffey who finally pushed tucci 007 out of the way to take it down and grab the $42K first place money.

1st place:    taaffey ($42,062.50)
2nd place:    tucci 007 ($28,535.20)
3rd place:    cvmoney15 ($19,180.50)
4th place:    lisa51178 ($15,479.00)
5th place:    rvmvnvs ($12,114.00)
6th place:    katalanon ($8,749.00)
7th place:    jimmykoy ($5,888.75)
8th place:    Ormen79 ($3,869.75)
9th place:    posipierre ($2,355.50)

Sunday Million

The ever-popular Sunday Million and its $1.5 million guarantee saw another decrease in registration numbers this week, which likely speaks to the vast number of players involved in important live tournaments but shows a consistent drop in those interested in the biggest tournament on the internet. Even so, the $200 + $15 buy-in attracted 8,464 players to create a prize pool of $1,692,800 for the top 1,260 players. The last three players standing agreed to an even chip-chop deal for the remainder of the money with extra left aside for the winner, and it was finally speedy0308 who took it down and grabbed nearly $206K for the victory.

1st place:    speedy0308 ($205,983.76)
2nd place:    KenshoSatori ($175,983.76)
3rd place:    playerscard ($175,983.76)
4th place:    elitelive ($84,640.00)
5th place:    fivetenatrad ($67,712.00)
6th place:    BossWife ($50,784.00)
7th place:    Allnwithda.. ($33,856.00)
8th place:    Schukie ($18,620.80)
9th place:    KingBalls123 ($13,119.20)

Sunday 500

Out of the Sunday offerings on PokerStars, the Sunday 500 is the one with the highest buy-in. And there were 1,006 players willing to put in $500 + $30 to take a shot at the $500K guarantee, though the numbers added up to an actual prize pool of $503,000. There were 144 players who walked away with more money than they invested, and ImDaNuts ended up defeating DRKP to take down the title and nearly $88K in prize money for the win.

1st place:    ImDaNuts ($87,924.40)
2nd place:    DRKP ($63,881.00)
3rd place:    DonkCommited ($37,785.00)
4th place:    msusyr24 ($35,713.00)
5th place:    chunmin ($25,150.00)
6th place:    the_R3aLde4L ($20,120.00)
7th place:    FatsoFat6969 ($15,090.00)
8th place:    Razorbacker7 ($10,060.00)
9th place:    Paultar ($5,784.50)

Sunday 2nd Chance
For the second week, the Sunday 2nd Chance tournament made it to the lineup of major tournaments, and it was another solid week for the event, as the $250K guarantee brought 1,492 players to the tables. Their $200 + $15 buy-ins were tabulated and brought the prize pool to $298,400. The last 171 players in the event were paid from that money in their last chance for big money of the evening, and in the end, a$$ou defeated PokerNoob999 to take home nearly $54K in prize money.

1st place:    a$$ou ($53,831.36)
2nd place:    PokerNoob999 ($38,941.20)
3rd place:    OkTime4PlanB ($29,840.00)

6th place:    Bill Ivey ($12,682.00)
7th place:    SAMOVRAH ($9,698.00)
8th place:    ettiezzi ($6,714.00)
9th place:    GAKingChaser ($4,177.60)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

With another round of FTOPS tournaments on the way, players were logging on to Full Tilt Poker to prepare for the series. Despite that, however, the number for the Sunday Brawl was down nearly 100 players from the week before. The $400K guarantee and $240 + $16 buy-in brought only 2,723 players to the tables for the bounty action, but those numbers still added up to a substantial $544,600 prize pool. After the last 279 players found themselves in the money, it came down to izik_74 and jpmetalman dueling in heads-up action for the title, which ultimately went to izik_74 along with more than $110K in prize money.

1st place:    izik_74 ($110,553.80)
2nd place:    jpmetalman ($71,342.60)
3rd place:    fullcreditto ($52,826.20)
4th place:    HalcyonDays ($39,755.80)
5th place:    BlackFours ($27,774.60)
6th place:    Ziale ($18,516.40)
7th place:    MichalJ10 ($12,525.80)
8th place:    SuperUsed ($8,713.60)
9th place:    TDBAY6 ($6,535.20)

$1 Million Guarantee
Once per month, the usual $750K Guarantee bumps up its buy-in as well as its guarantee to accommodate players who seek a bit more of the higher stakes action. This was just that Sunday, and the guarantee shot up to $1 million for a sizable $500 + $35 buy-in. That brought 2,102 players to the tables, which sent the prize pool to its final resting place at $1,051,000. A total of 306 players were able to cash out for more than what they put in, but it was at the final table that the top three players ultimately came to a financial arrangement. From there, ElMastermind took down gYPSYtearss to grab first place and nearly $177K that went with it.

1st place:    ElMastermind ($176,921.00)
2nd place:    gYPSYtearss ($118,000.00)
3rd place:    THE UTE ($95,000.00)
4th place:    Shovestoof ($62,009.00)
5th place:    kda281101 ($47,295.00)
6th place:    DuckU ($33,842.20)
7th place:    pbdrunks ($24,698.50)
8th place:    john_the_main ($19,443.50)
9th place:    aabomb09 ($14,714.00)

The Sunday Mulligan

One of the few tournaments to see a rise in the number of players was the Mulligan, which offered its usual $200K guarantee for the standard $200 + $16 buy-in. Registration showed 1,316 players in the event, which pushed the prize pool to $263,200 to be divvied amongst the top 135 finishers. When all was said and done, however, it was Gator93 and kiko1515 battling for the top prize of nearly $58K, and Gator93 pulled out the win.

1st place:    Gator93 ($57,904.00)
2nd place:    kiko1515 ($36,848.00)
3rd place:    young_diamond18 ($26,649.00)
4th place:    travisohc ($21,385.00)
5th place:    Rockette6530 ($16,134.16)
6th place:    StuMan123 ($11,844.00)
7th place:    cpm3 ($7,632.80)
8th place:    pokertrip ($5,527.20)
9th place:    Nicolak ($3,948.00)

$200K Double Deuce
As with the best buy on PokerStars, the best buy for the guarantee on Full Tilt Poker also saw another dip in the registration number. Tough financial times doesn’t stop poker players from diving right into the higher buy-in tournaments, it seems. Even still, the Double Deuce, with its $200K guarantee and $20 + $2 buy-in, found itself with 10,069 players, which was enough to propel the prize pool just over the guarantee to $201,380. That allowed the top 1,350 players to finish in the money and make a profit, but it was jason jiang who overtook PanicAtTheRiv3r during the heads-up battle to win the tournament and take home more than $31K for the small investment.

1st place:    jason jiang ($31,213.90)
2nd place:    PanicAtTheRiv3r ($21,144.90)
3rd place:    UnderGoReality7 ($14,902.12)
4th place:    SwagSoSick ($10,713.42)
5th place:    Hotdiggity11 ($7,853.82)
6th place:    dolphins1208 ($5,638.64)
7th place:    Killermoschall ($4,027.60)
8th place:    kaizersause ($2,879.73)
9th place:    ATAPUERCO ($2,035.95)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

Each week finds a different result for the biggest offering of the UltimateBet Sunday. Some weeks, registration doesn’t hit the guarantee, and other weeks show solid numbers with excess funds in the prize pool. This week, the number barely hit the 1,000 player mark but did so with 1,004 players. After the $200 + $15 buy-ins were calculated, the prize pool was just over the $200K guarantee when it came to $200,800. That allowed 99 players to finish in the money. And in the end, it was CHIPTHERIPPE who came out on top after defeating TBALLER247 in the heads-up battle to grab nearly $45K in prize money.

1st place:    CHIPTHERIPPE ($44,838.64)
2nd place:    TBALLER247 ($26,806.80)
3rd place:    KOSTENKIS ($18,172.40)
4th place:    LEON_BLACK ($12,951.60)
5th place:    BONZO9876 ($10,943.60)
6th place:    JUGADORMEJOR ($8,935.60)
7th place:    P0CKET00 ($6,927.60)
8th place:    BMICH69 ($4,919.60)
9th place:    MICAHDOWNS ($3,413.60)

Bodog


$100K Guaranteed

For the players who took to the tables on Bodog this Sunday and decided to put up the $150 + $12 for the big event, they found themselves with the usual five-figure overlay. The 470 players were guaranteed a $100K prize pool, and Bodog added to the cash to make that happen. That allowed 63 players to be paid for their efforts, but it was at the finish line that hebs beat out UFPokerStar to grab the top prize of $25K.

1st place:    hebs ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    UFPokerStar ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    slatehill4 ($9,500.00)
4th place:    jzbuckeye4life ($7,000.00)
5th place:    scarletknight19 ($5,500.00)
6th place:    vinnyb9 ($4,500.00)
7th place:    ashondamic ($3,500.00)
8th place:    Bellyr5 ($2,200.00)
9th place:    dyosifov ($1,700.00)
