Super Poker Sunday 06/06: Bear4rms Traps More than $200K for Sunday Million Win

Share this
Another week of the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas saw another Sunday of reduced registration numbers and prize pools in the major online poker tournaments. Certainly not all online players were at the Rio in Las Vegas in the live events, but between live tournaments, juicy cash games, satellites, and resting up in the middle of it all, there was a large contingent of online poker players out of commission for the online poker world.

Surprisingly enough, though, a few tournaments saw an uptick in registration. Though not enough to make a huge difference or put some tournaments over their guarantees, the increases were notable nonetheless, especially on Bodog, UB, and even some on Full Tilt and PokerStars. What that all seems to indicate is that some players are back into their routines after the first week of WSOP madness. However, their attendance over the coming weeks will likely depend on the live tournament action, Vegas nightlife, and other things that seem to get in the way of life during the World Series and summer in Sin City.

The biggest winner of the day came from the Sunday Million, as usual, and after a three-way deal, Bear4rms came out way ahead by winning the tournament and taking home the $204,342,02 prize. Several other tournaments awarded first prizes of more than $100K, but the PokerStars Sunday Million was by far the largest giveaway of the week.

For all of the Sunday statistics and final table finishers, see below.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

The Sunday majors on PokerStars got underway with the Warm-Up as they do each Sunday, but this time with a small decrease in the number of players. The $200 + $15 buy-in tournament found 3,965 participants for the $750K guarantee, but the numbers actually added up to a $793,000 prize pool. Payouts were given to the last 585 players standing, but the majority of the money awaited the final table players. As that table played out, it was bullyon and trionojnika who came to a financial agreement for the last of the prize money before bullyon went on to win it and take home more than $114K for it.

1st place:    bullyon ($114,120.08)
2nd place:    trionojnika ($103,161.92)
3rd place:    Showtime ($65,422.50)
4th place:    ginofluit ($45,597.50)
5th place:    ValueH ($33,702.50)
6th place:    bluffdeez503 ($25,772.50)
7th place:    CHRISCCC ($17,842.50)
8th place:    Jeremysl98 ($9,912.50)
9th place:    Sunny220v ($6,344.00)

Sunday 1/4 Million
The best buy of all of the Sunday tournaments is always the $10 + $1 buy-in Quarter Million that offers a whopping $250K guarantee for a very small investment, especially as compared to other Sunday events. This week saw a dip in attendance, but the 30,302-player field still took the prize pool upwards to where it landed at $303,020. The top 4,500 players were paid more than they invested, but the top two players were looking at the highest payouts, prompting them to come to a financial deal that saw iwearsandals take home more money than DaEmbezzler who won the tournament.

1st place:    DaEmbezzler ($22,000.00)
2nd place:    iwearsandals ($24,040.57)
3rd place:    totya0611 ($13,635.90)
4th place:    Hun90 ($10,605.70)
5th place:    m0ounties1 ($7,575.00)
6th place:    supersjuffer ($4,545.30)
7th place:    jacksnipe ($3,030.20)
8th place:    how_now59 ($2,272.65)
9th place:    BurakDog ($1,515.10)

D.N.G. Sunday Special
A downswing for the ever-popular DNG Sunday Special was a bit of a surprise for PokerStars, considering the $50 + $5 buy-in for a $300K guarantee is one of the better deals of all the Sunday majors. Nevertheless, there were only 5,985 players in this week’s tournament, which forced Stars to put in a few dollars to meet the guarantee and give the players a bit of an overlay. The prize pool gave out 900 payments to the last players standing, but it was at the final table that the last four players made a payment arrangement that ended up awarding more money to eagleeagle for second place than skaenk for first place.

1st place:    skaenk ($21,665.40)
2nd place:    eagleeagle ($30,000.00)
3rd place:    korjae ($23,079.27)
4th place:    P_Halt ($20,055.33)
5th place:    Aftret ($11,250.00)
6th place:    choko_mel ($8,250.00)
7th place:    ~Azztastic~ ($5,400.00)
8th place:    efouks ($3,600.00)
9th place:    B8kedBean ($2,100.00)

Sunday Million
The Sunday Million is a legend of sorts in the area of online tournaments, with its $1.5 million guarantee for the average buy-in of $200 + $15. Last week saw its biggest decrease in registration numbers in a long time, and though there was a slight uptick this week, the number still didn’t meet the guarantee. When the 7,309 buy-ins were counted, PokerStars kicked in some of its own money to make the prize pool an even $1.5 million to be divided amongst the top 1,080 players based on their finishes. In the end, the top three players came to a chop deal, though Bear4rms went all the way to win it and take home more than $204K.

1st place:    Bear4rms ($204,342.02)
2nd place:    General Tso0 ($159,103.54)
3rd place:    APowers1968 ($147,109.44)
4th place:    Michel1077 ($79,500.00)
5th place:    G8vMyLfeAway ($61,500.00)
6th place:    axn87 ($46,500.00)
7th place:    slamjakmyb ($32,250.00)
8th place:    Illini213 ($18,000.00)
9th place:    AceQuad ($11,625.00)

Sunday 500
The last of all of the Sunday majors to work its way to completion was the Sunday 500 on PokerStars. The high stakes offering, with its $500 + $30 buy-in and $500K guarantee, saw an increase of nearly 100 players over the prior week, though it still fell short of meeting the guarantee. Stars kicked in some money, created an overlay, and the $500K prize pool was used to pay out the top 135 finishers. When it was all said and done, troster16 beat DreamOnDream to take the title and $90K in prize money.

1st place:    troster16 ($90,000.00)
2nd place:   DreamOnDream ($64,150.00)
3rd place:    Prometheus R ($48,000.00)
4th place:    joaoMathias ($36,000.00)
5th place:    doulas12 ($25,000.00)
6th place:    njw11 ($20,000.00)
7th place:    YanniYankiev ($15,000.00)
8th place:    BUCKIZ6 ($10,000.00)
9th place:    thewh00sel ($6,000.00)

Sunday 2nd Chance
It may have been the last of the tournaments to get underway of all the Sunday majors on PokerStars, but it ran its course rather quickly. With a slight increase in the number of players from the week before, the $200 + $15 buy-in Second Chance event offered its $250K guarantee but bypassed it slightly when the prize pool climbed to $262,000. That allowed payouts for the top 153 players, and when the final table had run its course, the first place prize of more than $47K was awarded to slimshaggy for defeating pokerguru69 to end the tournament.

1st place:    slimshaggy ($47,579.20)
2nd place:    pokerguru69 ($34,584.00)
3rd place:    rounder13 ($26,200.00)
4th place:    slotmachine ($19,650.00)
5th place:    OkTime4PlanB ($13,755.00)
6th place:    dibsy ($11,135.00)
7th place:    TookURCookie ($8,515.00)
8th place:    tony1967 ($5,895.00)
9th place:    Akvavitiks ($3,668.00)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

The first of the Sunday tournaments on Full Tilt Poker jumped up by a few players this week for the $240 + $16 buy-in Brawl. With a bounty of $40 on each player’s head, the payouts came with every knockout. But actual prize pool, created by the 2,450 field, landed at $490,000, which allowed official payouts to the top 234 players. And when it came down to the final table and played down to two, arxigos and Athied87 battled until arxigos came out on top and grabbed nearly $100K for the win.

1st place:    arxigos ($99,935.50)
2nd place:    Athied87 ($64,680.00)
3rd place:    Pageh656 ($48,020.00)
4th place:    the_Waagi ($36,260.00)
5th place:    FaulkDogg ($25,480.00)
6th place:    Creachadoir ($16,660.00)
7th place:    borusse1984 ($11,270.00)
8th place:    theman2892 ($7,840.00)
9th place:    metadonk ($5,880.00)

$750K Guarantee
The last of the Full Tilt to finish, as always, was the biggest with its $750K guarantee for the typical Sunday buy-in of $200 + $16. This week, there were 3,286 players up for the challenge, and though that was an increase from the prior week, it still didn’t equal the $750K guarantee, meaning Full Tilt Poker had to add money to the prize pool and offer an overlay for the players. in the end, payouts were made to 522 players, the top two of them fighting it out for the largest prizes. Those last two players did come to a financial agreement before MrsNights defeated Adam “Roothlus” Levy to grab the $111K first place prize.

1st place:    MrsNights ($111,018.75)
2nd place:   Roothlus ($102,018.75)
3rd place:    Bhanks11 ($52,500.00)
4th place:    HoodedZebra ($41,400.00)
5th place:    schappuscha ($31,050.00)
6th place:    LotusDeLex ($23,025.00)
7th place:    rimmer27 ($17,250.00)
8th place:    threat89 ($13,500.00)
9th place:    Senichkin ($10,050.00)

The Sunday Mulligan
Another regular on the Sunday schedule for Full Tilt was the Mulligan, and almost 100 more player signed up to play this week than the last. The $200 + $16 buy-in tournament saw a total of 1,137 players at the table for the $200K guarantee, and the prize pool jumped up to $227,400 as a result of the numbers. The top 108 players received payouts, but it was PANDAmonium85 who ultimately defeated Fbonacci at the final table during heads-up action to take home more than $51K for the win.

1st place:    PANDAmonium85 ($51,165.00)
2nd place:    Fbonacci ($32,404.50)
3rd place:    Phil Ivey 18 ($23,990.70)
4th place:    Grubasek88 ($18,760.50)
5th place:    angie00 ($14,212.50)
6th place:    bestlayever ($10,233.00)
7th place:    RoccoGe ($6,822.00)
8th place:    wywrot ($5,116.50)
9th place:    allinstevie ($3,638.40)

$200K Double Deuce
The best buy of the Full Tilt Sunday tournaments is always the Double Deuce, where players can compete for a $200K guarantee for the low buy-in of only $20 + $2. Though there was an increase in the number of players this week to 9,872, it still missed the guarantee, so Full Tilt contributed to the prize pool to make it $200K and give the players an overlay. The final 1,350 players received more than their buy-ins for their play, but the final table witnessed MLH90 defeat Jack_Bauer74 heads-up to take the weekly title and $31K in prize money.

1st place:    MLH90 ($31,000.00)
2nd place:    Jack_Bauer74 ($21,000.00)
3rd place:    ImYourfckingAtm ($14,800.00)
4th place:    TVcasualty ($10,640.00)
5th place:    luckeyadams ($7,800.00)
6th place:    guigouti ($5,600.00)
7th place:    ddjeu ($4,000.00)
8th place:    WiccaBenya ($2,860.00)
9th place:    shayan 0013 ($2,022.00)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

The best deal of the Sunday tournaments on UltimateBet saw a rise in its registration number this week after a hefty dip the week before. After seeing the drop to 802 last week, the 926-player field this week was a welcome change. When the $200 + $15 buy-ins were added up, UB still had to add to the prize pool to make the $200K guarantee, which gave the players an overlay. The top 90 players received some form of payment for their efforts, but the final two players - BAXAMENTS15 and REELHUGEFISH - made some sort of deal that showed them both finish in second place. Since the payouts in that situation aren’t clear, the following list of payouts is the best assumption of how they finished.

1st place:    BAXAMENTS15 ($44,920.00)
2nd place:    REELHUGEFISH ($26,900.00)
3rd place:    JOCKINJZ ($18,300.00)
4th place:    TERENZHILL ($12,900.00)
5th place:    PCKT BULLETS ($10,900.00)
6th place:    DC_BIA ($8,900.00)
7th place:    IMPROVED ($6,900.00)
8th place:    CONDOKEL ($4,900.00)
9th place:    AWICE ($3,400.00)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

For the second week in a row, the biggest Bodog event of its Sunday offerings saw an increase in registration as most other tournaments decreased. This week, there were 543 players in the $150 + $12 buy-in tournament, and though Bodog still had to contribute to the prize pool to meet the $100K guarantee, the overlay was less than most weeks in the recent past. As play progressed, the last 63 players found themselves in the money, and when the final table finished, Kevin Blackwood beat Ramux for the top $25K prize.

1st place:    Kevin Blackwood ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    Ramux ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    dakota kid ($9,500.00)
4th place:    ljgrinder ($7,000.00)
5th place:    loper22 ($5,500.00)
6th place:    mobley65 ($4,500.00)
7th place:    WW2VET ($3,500.00)
8th place:    LuckForMe ($2,200.00)
9th place:    jjn4207 ($1,700.00)
