Super Poker Sunday 05/30: Numbers Down Due to WSOP, Danloulou Takes Top Prize

Share this
The poker world had its eyes and ears focused on the start of the 2010 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas this weekend, as Friday, May 28, marked its kickoff and Sunday night indicated the Series was in full force with several tournaments running. Many big names were off and running to try to win a WSOP bracelet or two, leaving the Sunday online poker majors lacking in some of the big names.

As it turned out, almost every single tournament on the list below took some sort of hit to its registration numbers. Several events had overlays that don’t normally have to contend with such prize pool worries. Most notably, the Sunday Million didn’t reach its $1.5 million guarantee, which hasn’t happened in quite a long time.

Even so, the Sunday Million produced the biggest winner of the week when danloulou took home $215,555.00 for winning the tournament and airic1400 took his part of the financial deal - $175K - for coming in second. PokerStars also outdid itself with its end-of-month tournaments, as the $1 Million Turbo Takedown gave away that million dollars, with $50K each going to first and second place finishers due to a deal between them, but it was gifrgmblr who went for the win and added a smooth Audi TT car to his take.

The tournament that took the biggest hit of all the Sunday majors was the $750K Guarantee on Full Tilt. The past week didn’t make the guarantee, but this week saw registration dip almost 600 players, making for the biggest overlay the tournament has seen in quite some time. Even so, mrfsy took down first place and nearly $133K for the win for the largest win of the FTP Sunday.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

If the first of the Sunday majors on PokerStars was any indication, the site’s big Sunday events weren’t going to take much of a hit due to WSOP live action. Registration was down less than 100 players for the $200 + $15 buy-in Warm-Up, as 4,029 players signed up and still surpassed the $750K guarantee with a respectable $805,800 prize pool. There were 585 players paid from that money, but in the end, it was Boruzze and ryanghall who made it to heads-up play and made a deal. Though Boruzze won the tournament and grabbed $110K for it, ryanghall took home nearly $1K more because of their arrangement.

1st place:    Boruzze ($110,000.00)
2nd place:    ryanghall ($110,790.64)
3rd place:    Cule100 ($66,478.50)
4th place:    Slawas1 ($46,333.50)
5th place:    PSA! ($34,246.50)
6th place:    guinor ($26,188.50)
7th place:    King_Lewis8 ($18,130.50)
8th place:    EndlessJ ($10,072.50)
9th place:    vador50 ($6,446.40)

$1 Million Turbo Takedown

At the end of every month, PokerStars rewards players for accumulating Frequent Player Points throughout the past few weeks. The Turbo Takedown is a $1 million freeroll for any players who have 3,000 points with which to buy in to the tournament. What is at stake is 5,000 places rewarding cash, final table finishes awarding five-figure payouts, and an Audi TT luxury car going to the winner on top of the prize money. This month, there were 18,655 players in the tournament, payments for 5,000 of them, and at the final table, gifrgmblr and Dubaipoker80 decided to chop the money evenly. With $50K for each, they played on until gifrgmblr won to grab the car as well.

1st place:    gifrgmblr ($50,000.00 & Audi TT)
2nd place:    Dubaipoker80 ($50,000.00)
3rd place:    Mikey0690 ($30,000.00)
4th place:    Leon2708 ($25,000.00)
5th place:    slimshaggy ($20,000.00)
6th place:    g00000se ($17,500.00)
7th place:    flynny1111 ($15,000.00)
8th place:    pokerdog1000 ($12,500.00)
9th place:    Dre 91 ($10,000.00)

Sunday 1/4 Million
The Quarter Million event on PokerStars remains the best buy on the internet and the most well-attended, though this week saw another dip in the registration numbers. The $10 + $1 buy-in event with its $250K guarantee still saw its prize pool soar, though, to $309,200 when all was said and done with 30,920 players. The top 4,500 spots paid something for the efforts of the players, but it was Farolero4 and Pavaltar who battled it out heads-up for the top prize of nearly $28K. That amount ultimately went to Farolero4, along with the tournament title.

1st place:    Farolero4 ($27,941.14)
2nd place:    Pavaltar ($19,139.48)
3rd place:    burchibiri ($13,914.00)
4th place:    xxxFROSTYxxx ($10,822.00)
5th place:    Natedogg112n ($7,730.00)
6th place:    houston1369 ($4,638.00)
7th place:    jonafern ($3,092.00)
8th place:    bconn33 ($2,319.00)
9th place:    Didapoker ($1,546.00)

D.N.G. Sunday Special
One of the first tournaments to start and one of the last to finish was the DNG Sunday Special, the latest tournament to be added to the list of Sunday majors on PokerStars. With its offering of a $300K guarantee for the low (in comparison) buy-in of $50 + $5 brought 6,372 players to the tables this week, which boosted the prize pool just slightly above the guarantee to $318,600. That allowed for the final 990 players to be paid. And when it was all said and done, Tigerspot beat leguito heads-up to take home nearly $40K and the weekly title.

1st place:    Tigerspot ($39,825.00)
2nd place:    leguito ($27,017.28)
3rd place:    sadodiits ($18,160.20)
4th place:    Papartis88 ($14,655.60)
5th place:    futurum ($11,469.60)
6th place:    boxergore ($8,283.60)
7th place:    M.nosbocaJ ($5,575.50)
8th place:    pinishe45 ($3,663.90)
9th place:    DaVieem ($2,230.20)

Sunday Million

With the WSOP in motion, the Sunday Million seemed to take one of the biggest hits of all of the Sunday majors. For the first time (since we can remember), the $1.5 million guarantee wasn’t reached. When the buy-ins of the 7,214 players, each having contributed $200 + $15, were calculated, the prize pool left something to be desired, and PokerStars anted up some cash to make the prize pool an even $1.5 million. That gave the last 1,080 players the opportunity to cash, but it was after the final table reached heads-up action that the two players - danloulou and airic1400 - came to a chop agreement for the rest of the prize money. They played it out until danloulou won, which was worth more than $215K and the coveted Sunday Million title.

1st place:    danloulou ($215,555.00)
2nd place:    airic1400 ($175,000.00)
3rd place:    KKruchitAAs ($120,000.00)
4th place:    PUCIPUCO ($79,500.00)
5th place:    lanacido ($61,500.00)
6th place:    KKremate ($46,500.00)
7th place:    Student_Eur ($32,250.00)
8th place:    parivax ($18,000.00)
9th place:    erb4321 ($11,625.00)

Sunday 500
Without fail, the Sunday 500 was one of the last to get going and the very last of the PokerStars Sunday majors to end. The high stakes tournament saw quite the decrease in the number of players this week, mostly due to those high stakes players being somewhere at the Rio for WSOP action. The $500 + $30 buy-in event with the $500K guarantee only garnered 845 participants, which forced Stars to put in some extra money to make that promised prize pool. There were 126 players paid from the monies, but in the end, AltyAA defeated pokerjamers to take the $90K first place prize and weekly title.

1st place:    AltyAA ($90,000.00)
2nd place:    pokerjamers ($65,000.00)
3rd place:    dapalma150 ($48,500.00)
4th place:    morbo1 ($36,250.00)
5th place:    caprizas ($25,200.00)
6th place:    GetItQuietly ($20,000.00)
7th place:    Schappascha ($15,000.00)
8th place:    TherookieQQ9 ($10,000.00)
9th place:    as1025 ($6,000.00)

Sunday 2nd Chance
With all of the extra end-of-month tournaments going on this week on PokerStars, there were still players looking for one last chance to get their win on Sunday. The $200 + $15 Second Chance event did just that, and guaranteed them a shot at a $250K guarantee. There were only 1,249 players in the tournament, meaning there was a slight overlay when Stars kicked in a bit of extra money to make the guaranteed prize pool. In the end, there were 144 payments doled out, but it was Pghfan987 who beat horyna to take down the title and more than $45K in first prize money.

1st place:    Pghfan987 ($45,625.00)
2nd place:    horyna ($33,225.00)
3rd place:    Elsarelli ($25,000.00)
4th place:    yayaya ($18,750.00)
5th place:    croll103 ($13,125.00)
6th place:    jvans ($10,625.00)
7th place:    ANIMAL5050 ($8,125.00)
8th place:    oliAA ($5,625.00)
9th place:    CONI2AD ($3,500.00)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

The first of the four major Sunday events on Full Tilt saw a bit of a dip in registration this week, as the number was more than 200 less than the prior week. The $240 + $16 knockout tournament placed a $40 bounty on each player’s head and guaranteed a $400K prize pool to the players, and 2,304 of them signed up to give it a shot. That pushed the prize pool up to a still-solid $460,800 to be distributed among the last 234 players standing. In the end, Sirocko took it all the way past bparis to the winner’s circle and claimed nearly $94K in cash for the victory.

1st place:    Sirocko ($93,980.16)
2nd place:    bparis ($60,825.60)
3rd place:    TidlauS ($45,158.40)
4th place:    Marshal Konev ($34,099.20)
5th place:    Brundaddy ($23,961.60)
6th place:    PlzDntRivrMe ($15,667.20)
7th place:    PELIKANEN ($10,598.40)
8th place:    KevboyStar ($7,372.80)
9th place:    erica s ($5,529.60)

$750K Guarantee
The biggest of the Sunday guarantees on Full Tilt took the biggest hit of any tournament involved in the Sunday majors category. Most likely due to the WSOP, registration was down nearly 600 players this week, making for a big overlay for the players. The $200 + $16 tournament with a $750K guarantee only attracted 3,030 competitors on Sunday, so Full Tilt added to the prize pool to make it an even $750K. The top 522 finishers were paid something for their efforts, but late into the night, mrfsy took down Arsonist88 to grab almost $133K in first place prize money.

1st place:    mrfsy ($132,787.50)
2nd place:    Arsonist88 ($80,250.00)
3rd place:    MaxBNuts ($52,500.00)
4th place:    Gigabet ($41,400.00)
5th place:    78Morrow ($31,050.00)
6th place:    BodySlamm ($23,025.00)
7th place:    isuskwe ($17,250.00)
8th place:    Jack4339 ($13,500.00)
9th place:    Tim0thee ($10,050.00)

The Sunday Mulligan
This was one of the few tournaments on the Sunday roster that stayed at its status quo. It lost a few players in this week’s registration, but it was nothing of significance. The Sunday Mulligan, with its $200 + $16 buy-in for a $200K guarantee, brought 1,048 players to the tables, with the final 108 of them getting paid from the $209,600 prize pool. The fight was on at the final table for the $47K first place prize, which ultimately went to AsMetzmagnyAs upon defeating TK420 US.

1st place:    AsMetzmagnyAs ($47,160.00)
2nd place:    TK420 US ($29,868.00)
3rd place:    boh ($22,112.80)
4th place:    Petie_BigStacks ($17,292.00)
5th place:    mfleisch111 ($13,100.00)
6th place:    mymymadrose ($9,432.00)
7th place:    castellimich ($6,288.00)
8th place:    mnl1337 ($4,716.00)
9th place:    -zoopreme- ($3,353.60)

$200K Double Deuce
Players looking for a solid investment on Full Tilt can always find it with the Double Deuce. For only $20 + $2, players are guaranteed a $200K prize pool. This week, however, the numbers dropped again, and registration stopped at 9,092 players. That required Full Tilt to pad the prize pool to get it to $200K and give the players an overlay. There were 1,350 payments made to the top finishers, but it was mr_aces222 who defeated iwanttoholdu in the final match-up to grab the top prize of $31K.

1st place:    mr_aces222 ($31,000.00)
2nd place:    iwanttoholdu ($21,000.00)
3rd place:    Jogadho ($14,800.00)
4th place:    krivaya ($10,640.00)
5th place:    Professor EZ ($7,800.00)
6th place:    alexxx40 ($5,600.00)
7th place:    annajottai ($4,000.00)
8th place:    mrskeltz ($2,860.00)
9th place:    RenatoAmaral ($2,022.00)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

Another week, another dip for the biggest Sunday tournament on UltimateBet. There is no clear indication of why the drop in players this week, other than the WSOP being in action in Las Vegas. The $200 + $15 buy-in tournament with its $200K guarantee brought only 802 players to the tables on May 30, which gave them quite the nice overlay when UB added money to the prize pool to make that guaranteed number. That allowed 81 players to be paid, though nearly $46K was reserved for the winner. And after a heads-up match between PRINCESSDONK and DELIVERNCHIT, the latter came out on top and took down the title and prize money.

1st place:    DELIVERNCHIT ($45,700.00)
2nd place:    PRINCESSDONK ($28,200.00)
3rd place:    THE_BUZZ ($18,500.00)
4th place:    KIMDYNASTY ($13,000.00)
5th place:    CUSE_1 ($11,000.00)
6th place:    FALCONPUNCH ($9,000.00)
7th place:    PERSHAD ($7,000.00)
8th place:    STHORO1985 ($5,000.00)
9th place:    KUMOKITTY ($3,500.00)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

The registration numbers for the big Sunday Bodog event had been dropping for several weeks but rose, oddly enough, during the first weekend of the WSOP. The $150 + $12 tournament with a $100K guarantee drew 493 players this week, though it still didn’t meet up to the promised prize pool before Bodog supplemented it to make it so. In the end, as usual, the top 63 players received payments for their hours worth of work, but it was AgentSSE who made it to heads-up play with dsc5085 and won the $25K first place prize.

1st place:    AgentSSE ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    dsc5085 ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    harrington25 ($9,500.00)
4th place:    nutzkrackr ($7,000.00)
5th place:    amaru34 ($5,500.00)
6th place:    grayzee9 ($4,500.00)
7th place:    bow_1101 ($3,500.00)
8th place:    lexveritus19 ($2,200.00)
9th place:    Tcrowley ($1,700.00)
