Super Poker Sunday 05/16: Marshall1121 Wins Big on Full Tilt 750K Guarantee

Share this
Another Sunday, another monster day in the world of online poker. But it wasn’t all in the Sunday majors, as SCOOP and MiniFTOPS took some of the credit for the surge in online poker players.

The MiniFTOPS on Full Tilt Poker was hosting its Main Event, but for the last night of the series, the site put the $200K Double Deuce back on the schedule, giving it a full four tournaments besides the MiniFTOPS wrap. That led to a solid week on Full Tilt and the biggest prize of the week going to Marshall1121, the winner of the $750K Guarantee, who took home more than $132K for the victory.

The Spring Championship of Online Poker was also hosting its wrap-up event, but another one was on the schedule along with the Main Event, prompting PokerStars to keep the Sunday Warm-Up and Sunday Million off the roster for another week. With the removal of the Million, it left Full Tilt open to grab the biggest “regulars” prize of the week, though SCOOP was boasting of multi-million dollar prize pools in its final events.

Out of the regular events, only one sponsored team pro made it to a final table, and that was Johannes Strassmann of PokerStars, who made it to seventh place in the Sunday 500. The rest of the Sunday fame and glory was left to lesser known pros and amateurs who were undoubtedly happy to add a Sunday majors final table to their list of accomplishments. For a list of all the final table information from Sunday, May 16, see below.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

The last night of SCOOP meant one more night without the Sunday Warm-Up, one of several tournaments ripped from the lineup of regulars to make way for one of the biggest online tournament series of the year. It is scheduled to return next week.

Sunday 1/4 Million
With many players in the online world concentrating on SCOOP tournaments on PokerStars - or even the MiniFTOPS Main Event on Full Tilt - the Sunday 1/4 Million still had a reasonable turnout, as not many players could walk away from the $10 + $1 buy-in that guaranteed players at least $250K in the prize pool. When 28,100 people signed up, though, the pool grew to $281,000, which gave 4,500 players the chance to cash. And in the end, ucosmo survived the entire field, including leoforostheo, the second place finisher, to take home more than $25K for the feat.

1st place:    ucosmo ($25,290.00)
2nd place:    leoforostheo ($17,393.90)
3rd place:    Raben99 ($12,645.00)
4th place:    ELGRAND4 ($9,835.00)
5th place:    COBOTCH ($7,025.00)
6th place:    pj0ern ($4,215.00)
7th place:    anthonyshark ($2,810.00)
8th place:    Leonishe ($2,107.50)
9th place:    Gee Que 909 ($1,405.00)

D.N.G. Sunday Special
The newest addition to the regular Sunday majors lineup has quickly become one of the players’ favorites, with its bargain buy-in of $55 and a $300K guarantee. The offshoot of the Daily Ninety Grand tournaments finds its way to big prize pools on Sunday, and when 6,432 players signed up this week, the pool jumped to $321,600. The money was given out to the last 990 people in the tournament, but in the end, bullklaus outlasted everyone, including second place finisher inferno053, to take down the $40K first place prize.

1st place:    bullklaus ($40,200.00)
2nd place:    inferno053 ($27,271.68)
3rd place:    Pokeryugo ($18,331.20)
4th place:    Darylll ($14,793.60)
5th place:    MYMSGREG ($11,577.60)
6th place:    alcswab ($8,361.60)
7th place:    nellie11 ($5,628.00)
8th place:    matthew119 ($3,698.40)
9th place:    Jackballs2 ($2,251.20)

Sunday Million
The biggest of the Sunday tournaments on all sites is the Sunday Million, but again it was taken off the regular schedule so players could concentrate fully on SCOOP events. The massively popular tournament with its $1.5 million guarantee will return next week, ending its hiatus.

Sunday 500
The Sunday500 is one of the biggest buy-in tournaments on the Sunday regulars roster, and though there were numerous other high buy-in events to play this week, players came out for the $500K guarantee with the $500 + $30 buy-ins. The total registration number was 1,056, which pushed the prize pool to $528,000 and allowed the last 153 players to be paid. PokerStars Pro Johannes Strassmann made it to the final table but finished in seventh, leaving Comandr_Cool to run away with the win by ultimately defeating probirs to grab the $91K for first place.

1st place:    Comandr_Cool ($91,132.80)
2nd place:    probirs ($66,000.00)
3rd place:    doulas12 ($50,160.00)
4th place:    HoldumGod ($36,748.80)
5th place:    caio_pimenta ($26,136.00)
6th place:    nickpr ($20,856.00)
7th place:    J.Strassmann ($15,576.00)
8th place:    WatchTheSea ($10,296.00)
9th place:    kleath ($5,808.00)

Sunday 2nd Chance
Last week, we reported that the 2nd Chance event was off the regular Sunday schedule because of SCOOP tournaments, but we were mistaken. (Gasp!) We simply missed it. But not this week! This week, we’re happy to report that the $250K guarantee brought 1,547 players into the action for only $200 + $15 each, and the subsequent prize pool was a solid $309,400. The final 180 players made it into the money, and the last two players standing were ramondemon77 and lhetmein. The battle ended when ramondemon77 landed the final blow and won almost $56K for grabbing the weekly title.

1st place:    ramondemon77 ($55,692.00)
2nd place:    lhetmein ($40,222.00)
3rd place:    Trapomp ($30,940.00)
4th place:    Akumila ($23,205.00)
5th place:    smerks ($16,243.50)
6th place:    oncommand ($13,149.50)
7th place:    fhaugen ($10,055.50)
8th place:    OGURI ($6,961.50)
9th place:    shaundeeb ($4,331.60)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl
The first of the Full Tilt Sunday offerings brought players to the Sunday Brawl, with its $240 + $16 buy-in and $40 bounties on each player. The $400K guarantee brought 2,647 players to the tables, which is per the usual numbers, and the prize pool was subsequently set at $529,400. That gave the last 279 players in the tournament the chance to cash, but it was asudetrefla who ended up making it to heads-up and defeating ZiZaZeppo to take down the Brawl title and more than $107K in prize money.

1st place:    asudetrefla ($107,468.20)
2nd place:    ZiZaZeppo ($69,351.40)
3rd place:    Ship it Nubs ($51,351.80)
4th place:    da_professional ($38,646.20)
5th place:    tblightning3 ($26,999.40)
6th place:    xxxLIKANxxx ($17,999.60)
7th place:    ProbBluffingYou ($12,176.20)
8th place:    nirvanakc ($8,470.40)
9th place:    nypitbull24 ($6,352.80)

$750K Guarantee

With several main events running, the biggest of the Full Tilt Sunday events suffered, as its $750K guarantee for the $200 + $16 buy-in only attracted 3,497 players. That forced Full Tilt to contribute to the prize pool to make it an even $750K, but it gave the players a bit of an overlay. in the end, 522 players were paid, and Marsall1121 eliminated sampson724 to capture the title and walk away with a cool $133K for the win.

1st place:    Marshall1121 ($132,787.50)
2nd place:    sampson724 ($80,250.00)
3rd place:    DwayneStacey ($52,500.00)
4th place:    pairAShilton ($41,400.00)
5th place:    TheOracle8 ($31,050.00)
6th place:    Bond18 ($23,025.00)
7th place:    anvil510 ($17,250.00)
8th place:    squeezeboxx ($13,500.00)
9th place:    zoedoe ($10,050.00)

The Sunday Mulligan
Players seemed excited for the Sunday Mulligan on the Full Tilt lineup, with its $200 + $16 buy-in and a $200K guarantee. There were 1,235 takers this week, which surpassed the guarantee and made for a $247,000 prize pool and set aside payouts for the final 135 players in the event. When it was down to just two left standing, StepOnU and SHiP THAT made a deal for the remainder of the money but continued to play until StepOnU won and grabbed the bigger prize of more than $45K for the victory.

1st place:    StepOnU ($45,460.00)
2nd place:    SHiP THAT ($43,460.00)
3rd place:    Obvamentz_IMO ($25,008.75)
4th place:    blaniac ($20,068.75)
5th place:    NYpokerguy ($15,141.10)
6th place:    TotalScience ($11,115.00)
7th place:    drunks222 ($7,163.00)
8th place:    boNeZee ($5,187.00)
9th place:    P0KERPR0 ($3,705.00)

$200K Double Deuce
When the Double Deuce was taken off the schedule during the first part of the MiniFTOPS series, it was assumed it wouldn’t return until the series was over. But it did return on May 16, as MiniFTOPS was winding down with its Main Event. Players were glad to see the Deuce back on the schedule, but the numbers were down as registration only hit 8,896, despite its $20 + $2 buy-in for a sizable $200K guarantee. Full Tilt put in some cash to give the players an overlay and make the prize pool an even $200K, and 1,350 players were paid from it. Ultimately, ConfusedPenguin beat out Callisto after coming to a financial agreement, and Confused Penguin shipped the title and $31K in prize money.

1st place:    Confused Penguin ($28,000.00)
2nd place:    Callisto ($24,000.00)
3rd place:    christina MN ($14,800.00)
4th place:    rh300487 ($10,640.00)
5th place:    ShipTheDeadPrez ($7,800.00)
6th place:    Marc Kech ($5,600.00)
7th place:    pats3x ($4,000.00)
8th place:    xdemon89 ($2,860.00)
9th place:    elcheapo04 ($2,022.00)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

There were low numbers again this week at the big Sunday tournament on UltimateBet, as only 903 players signed up for the $200K guarantee. Once players’ buy-ins of $200 + $15 were calculated, they learned there was an overlay in the event because UB added close to $20K to get to the $200K prize pool. As the event ran its course and the final 99 players made it into the money, the last final players standing were MR_BIBQUESO and ENDER555, and the latter ended up winning the tournament for the title and close to $45K.

1st place:    ENDER555 ($45,700.00)
2nd place:    MR_BIGQUESO ($28,200.00)
3rd place:    CHARDRIAN ($18,500.00)
4th place:    SHERLOCKGT3 ($13,000.00)
5th place:    SODAIRA11 ($11,000.00)
6th place:    BONSAIKITTEN ($9,000.00)
7th place:    THE_BUZZ ($7,000.00)
8th place:    CRAZYHORSE76 ($5,000.00)
9th place:    THEWOOD04 ($3,500.00)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

This week, the biggest offering of the Bodog Sunday gave players their usual $100K guarantee, and a rise in registration saw a total of 500 players up for the challenge. But when their $150 + $12 buy-ins were calculated, Bodog was left to add another $24,500 to the prize pool to push it to $100,000. Out of the field, the top 63 players were paid from that money, but it was down to the final table that sprink 669 and AD1 who worked their way to heads-up action, and the former came out on top to grab the $25K first prize.

1st place:    sprink 669 ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    AD1 ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    brownrugby420 ($9,500.00)
4th place:    RJules12 ($7,000.00)
5th place:    imawhale26 ($5,500.00)
6th place:    MuffinMuffinMan ($4,500.00)
7th place:    dpottz ($3,500.00)
8th place:    troutman101 ($2,200.00)
9th place:    donk slayer ($1,700.00)
