Super Poker Sunday 07/25: Registration Up Again, BarneyR2005 Grabs $245K in Sunday Million

Share this
It was impressive to watch the numbers grow for the second week in a row in almost every major tournament on Sunday, July 25. The two weeks since the end of the World Series of Poker have shown steady increases, with all but a few select tournaments surpassing their guarantees and pushing registration numbers to their usual ranges.

A few extra tournaments were even thrown into the mix this weekend, as PokerStars held its monthly customer appreciation events on the last Sunday. One of those was the $1 Million Turbo Takedown, which offered $1 million in prizes, plus an Audi TT luxury car, to players who had accumulated 3,000 Frequent Player Points and chose to buy in to the tournament. More than 17K players did just that, and coNNBoyle outlasted them all to take home $60K and a car.

Other big prizes were awarded this week, namely several six-figure and quite possibly life-changing payouts. The biggest, though, as usual, came from the PokerStars Sunday Million, which moved well past its $1.5 million guarantee to offer 1,260 payouts, the top three being six-figures. Nenita02 took home nearly $125 for third place, B Buddy was rewarded with almost $179K for second place, and BarneyR2005 overcame a chip deficit and soared to the win to grab nearly $245 for the accomplishment. Not a bad Sunday for many, many players.

For all of the final table finishes and the tournament stats, check out the information below.

PokerStars

Sunday Warm-Up

It was a solid way for PokerStars’ Sunday to begin, as an increase in registration boosted the prize pool higher than it had been in some time. The $750K guarantee on the event attracted 4,265 players, all of whom were able to ante up the $200 + $15 buy-in to play. That took the prize pool up to $853,000, which was set up to allow 630 players to be paid when all was said and done. And just before the tournament ended, BigFlopper01 and LVSEO made a deal for the remainder of the money during heads-up play before the former won and grabbed $120K for it.

1st place:    BigFlopper01 ($120,000.00)
2nd place:    LVSEO ($113,193.14)
3rd place:    BFGI800 ($70,372.50)
4th place:    Patonius2000 ($48,194.50)
5th place:    AB1001 ($36,252.50)
6th place:    drew5927 ($27,722.50)
7th place:    Ivan MC 2007 ($19,192.50)
8th place:    strflushtome ($10,662.50)
9th place:    Sick’nSocial ($6,824.00)

$1 Million Turbo Takedown
The once-a-month tournament is actually an opportunity for players to buy in to a $1 million guaranteed tournament, one that also awarded a Audi TT luxury car to the first prize winner, for only 3,000 Frequent Player Points, those that are accumulated for simply playing on the site over time. And there were 17,821 players able to do just that and get in on the $1 million guarantee and take shots at Team PokerStars Pros who had bounties on their heads. There were 5,000 players paid from the prize pool, and in the end, the final table pushed through with no deal, and coNNBoyle was able to defeat growby to grab $60K in first place money in addition to a brand new car.

1st place:    coNNBoyle ($60,000 and Audi TT)
2nd place:    growby ($40,000.00)
3rd place:    APZ19 ($30,000.00
4th place:    mossified84 ($25,000.00)
5th place:    knif1807 ($20,000.00)
6th place:    pain-bg ($17,500.00)
7th place:    naka34 ($15,000.00)
8th place:    muezzo ($12,500.00)
9th place:    sgc0458 ($10,000.00)

Sunday 1/4 Million
The best value of all of the Sunday tournaments is always the Quarter Million, which offers a $250K guarantee for the bargain basement price of $10 + $1 for the opportunity. That drew a sizeable crowd of 30,559 players, much closer to the numbers seen prior to the start of the WSOP earlier in the summer. And the prize pool subsequently jumped to $305,590 and offered 4,500 players the chance to cash. When the last cards were dealt, it was anakinso who took the biggest return on his investment, as the first place prize was well over $27K.

1st place:    anakinso ($27,528.45)
2nd place:    thop5574 ($18,916.02)
3rd place:    TripsRemco ($13,751.55)
4th place:    broke_addict ($10,695.65)
5th place:    Semi-chemmy ($7,639.75)
6th place:    Vasafisk ($4,583.85)
7th place:    Tonitto87 ($3,055.90)
8th place:    benshlank ($2,291.92)
9th place:    PFR1986 ($1,527.95)

D.N.G. Sunday Special
Another great bargain as far as the Sunday tournaments go is always the DNG Sunday Special, as it boasts of one of the greater guarantees of $300K but one of the lower buy-ins of $50 + $5. Registration reflected its growing popularity as nearly 1K more people signed up to play this week than last. That 7,170-player field sent the prize pool up to $358,500, and the top 1,080 of those players were paid from that fund. Ultimately, though, the last five players came to a chip-chop agreement, but it was Phoelex who beat them all and took more than $31K for the win.

1st place:    Phoelex ($31,424.12)
2nd place:    KenNgo800 ($23,430.12)
3rd place:    bangOutNow ($23,056.63)
4th place:    chipdonky247 ($22,880.42)
5th place:    LUFCBas ($22,640.22)
6th place:    Turcin89 ($9,321.00)
7th place:    CFrams ($6,273.75)
8th place:    froshogen ($4,122.75)
9th place:    jaws2210 ($2,509.50)

Sunday Million
It was a whirlwind day for the tournament with the biggest guarantee on the internet, as the Sunday Million played down quite quickly to determine its winner. The $1.5 million guarantee was back to drawing big crowds, and 8,319 players turned out for this week’s fireworks. That actually brought the prize pool to a solid $1,663,800, which was distributed to the last 1,260 players standing in the tournament. The final table played quickly, and though B Buddy had the chip lead through most of the action, BarneyR2005 was able to make a comeback and win the tournament to take home the grand prize of nearly $245K to go with the most coveted online poker title.

1st place:    BarneyR2005 ($244,749.39)
2nd place:    B Buddy ($178,858.50)
3rd place:    nenita02 ($124,785.00)
4th place:    RonaldKosh ($83,190.00)
5th place:    Cukbandit ($66,552.00)
6th place:    bostero27 ($49,914.00)
7th place:    kirbyi17 ($33,276.00)
8th place:    dehoo ($18,301.80)
9th place:    BWFCLEE ($12,894.45)

Sunday 500
The very last of all of the major Sunday events to finish was PokerStars’ high stakes option. The $500K guarantee tournament for a sizable $500 + $30 buy-in always brings out some big names, and this week was no different. All together, the field grew to 1,045 players, and the prize pool rose to $522,500. After the top 153 players were paid from that sum, the final table eventually came along, and Team PokerStars Pro Steve Paul-Ambrose finished in fifth place to represent the site. But it was SFisch4 who pushed through to defeat Kripp85 in heads-up play and win more than $90K.

1st place:    SFisch4 ($90,183.50)
2nd place:    Kripp85 ($65,312.50)
3rd place:    Udon Wannit ($49,637.50)
4th place:    OGURI ($36,366.00)
5th place:    stevejpa ($25,863.75)
6th place:    Andy McLEOD ($20,638.75)
7th place:    RoxxBox ($15,413.75)
8th place:    XTheDecanoX ($10,188.75)
9th place:    Bruno GT ($5,747.50)

Sunday 2nd Chance
One of the last tournaments to get running on Sunday was over quite early this week. The Second Chance event offers players a $250K guarantee for their last-chance buy-ins of $200 + $15. The registration number stopped at 1,564 players, which boosted the prize pool to $312,800 and allowed the last 180 players to be paid. Several online team pros from the PokerStars team made it close to the final table, and nanonoko actually bubbled it. But it was urmomislag hung in there and took out gregy20723 to grab the title and more than $56K in first prize money.

1st place:    urmomislag ($56,304.00)
2nd place:    gregy20723 ($40,664.00)
3rd place:    el croata ($31,280.00)
4th place:    zXJaEXz ($23,460.00)
5th place:    gator93 ($16,422.00)
6th place:    BruceWizayne ($13,294.00)
7th place:    squee451 ($10,166.00)
8th place:    The-Toilet 0 ($7,038.00)
9th place:    cwmizner ($4,379.20)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

The first of the Full Tilt Sunday offerings on the big buy-in schedule was the weekly Brawl, where a $400K guarantee was up for grabs for the $240 + $16 buy-in, one that also brought on the opportunity to collect $40 bounties from each player one eliminated along the way. Registration was up significantly this week, as 2,585 players took their virtual seats and created a $517,000 prize pool. After the top 279 players were paid and the final table played through, it was highlandfox who defeated Gags30, after coming to a chip-chop agreement, to grab more than $90K for the win.

1st place:    highlandfox ($90,144.08)
2nd place:    Gags30 ($82,533.92)
3rd place:    Operga ($50,149.00)
4th place:    thaa flash ($37,741.00)
5th place:    AWice ($26,367.00)
6th place:    Softman ($17,578.00)
7th place:    YooACEhole ($11,891.00)
8th place:    Poolbaby ($8,272.00)
9th place:    JayDoublJ ($6,204.00)

$750,000 Guarantee
After last week’s million dollar guarantee, the weekly $750K guarantee was instituted to bring things back to normal, and the buy-in was once again reduced to its usual $200 + $16. The turnout for the occasion was solid, as 3,381 players signed up, though Full Tilt was still obligated to kick in some money to the prize pool to make it an even $750K. The top 522 players were paid from that money that included an overlay, though the bigger money was at the final table. After the three finalists came to a financial agreement, third place was awarded more than $94K, but gaucho2121 took home a little over $85K to go with the title for winning the event.

1st place:    gaucho2121 ($85,198.50)
2nd place:    TwoGun1 ($86,288.10)
3rd place:    D1rtyR1v3r ($94,050.90)
4th place:    TilTKimo ($41,400.00)
5th place:    rafampvieira ($31,050.00)
6th place:    Star Wolf 64 ($23,025.00)
7th place:    southside1 ($17,250.00)
8th place:    A__theKevlar__2 ($13,500.00)
9th place:    gusost ($10,050.00)

The Sunday Mulligan
One of the few tournaments that saw a slight dip in player registration this week was the Mulligan, with its standard $200K guarantee for the buy-in of $200 + $16. There were 1,307 players, exactly 81 players short of the prior week’s numbers, but the registration still boosted the prize pool over the guarantee to where it landed at $261,400. The top 135 players were paid from that cash, and it was 3dognight who defeated mman_status to win the tournament and the more than $57K that went with it.

1st place:    3dognight ($57,508.00)
2nd place:    mman_status ($36,596.00)
3rd place:    StuMan123 ($26,466.75)
4th place:    ComeNgeTTiT ($21,238.75)
5th place:    jordankickz ($16,023.82)
6th place:    sheva74 ($11,763.00)
7th place:    JaEs SiK ($7,580.60)
8th place:    Falfaris ($5,489.40)
9th place:    chinut11 ($3,921.00)

$200K Double Deuce
The best buy of the Full Tilt Sunday options is always the Double Deuce, where a meager $20 + $2 can put players in contention for the $200K guarantee. The registration did increase by a few hundred players this week over last, but the 9,421 number still wasn’t enough to make the guarantee, so Full Tilt added money to the pool to give players an overlay and set the prize money at an even $200K. From that, a total of 1,350 players were paid, and in the end, Im Beamin took out endemol1 to grab the title and exactly $31K in cash.

1st place:    Im Beamin ($31,000.00)
2nd place:    endemol1 ($21,000.00)
3rd place:    admjtf ($14,800.00)
4th place:    exaltedsky ($10,640.00)
5th place:    stillalive68 ($7,800.00)
6th place:    Frymealiver ($5,600.00)
7th place:    AndreiPopa ($4,000.00)
8th place:    Limber Dwarf ($2,860.00)
9th place:    roger_the_alien ($2,022.00)

UltimateBet

$200K Guaranteed

The big UB tournament of the Sunday night roster finally made its jump back over the guarantee this week, after a lull during the World Series of Poker. This Sunday, the $200 + $15 tournament with the $200K guarantee brought 1,082 players to the tables, nearly 100 more than the prior week, and that brought the prize pool up to $216,400. No overlay for the players, but the prize pool was larger than it had been in awhile. And in the end, THE MOB RULES was able to take the biggest prize offered on that payout schedule, as the win garnered a $48K deposit plus sum into his account.

1st place:    THE MOB RULES ($48,322.12)
2nd place:    JBLAZE20 ($28,889.40)
3rd place:    JMEWNIE ($19,584.20)
4th place:    JDOGG11 ($13,957.80)
5th place:    CHARDRIAN ($11,793.80)
6th place:    TJCOOKIER ($9,629.80)
7th place:    JONNYLAVA ($7,465.80)
8th place:    JALAPENO123 ($5,301.80)
9th place:    1JOHND ($3,678.80)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

The big Bodog Sunday offering this week saw a big jump in the number of players in the tournament, as the $100K guarantee drew 632 players to the tables, quite a few more than the prior week and weeks before. With each of their $150 + $12 buy-ins, Bodog only had to contribute a slight amount to make the $100K prize pool, which also gave the players an overlay. In the end, the top 90 players were able to be paid, but it was uncfan4life626 who ended up on top, taking home more than $23K for the first place finish.

1st place:    uncfan4life626 ($23,600.00)
2nd place:    Ragaboo ($13,600.00)
3rd place:    actyper ($9,100.00)
4th place:    SeanTheDon1985 ($7,000.00)
5th place:    pitrz ($5,700.00)
6th place:    jchimix ($4,500.00)
7th place:    afroburg ($3,300.00)
8th place:    grayzee9 ($2,200.00)
9th place:    TyNiggs ($1,300.00)
