Super Poker Sunday 08-29 - Peetoon Grabs Six Figures for Sunday Million Win

Share this
The last Sunday in August was a sign that the summer months were preparing to come to a close, as parents prepared their children for a new school year and poker players set their live event schedules for the rest of the year. But the last Sunday in any month is a little more exciting than other weeks for one reason - PokerStars offers several freerolls that reward players for their regular efforts on the site.

This Sunday brought several of those opportunities for PokerStars players, including the massive $1 million tournament for players who have accumulated 3,000 Frequent Player Points and want to use them for the event. Nearly 14,000 players took advantage of it this month, and 5,000 of them were paid for their efforts, but none like the ultimate winner, BigFlopper01, who took down $60,000 in cash and a brand new luxury Audi TT vehicle for the victory. That player will always remember the last Sunday in August.

Many others took advantage of the millions of dollars in guarantees on tap in the regular Sunday events. UB Poker was finding success with its weekly event and surpassing its guarantee by a wide margin for another week, despite the main events of the UBOC5 and its mini-version going on at the same time. Full Tilt Poker, on the other hand, struggled to find enough players for its weekly tournaments, two of which had overlays once again. But all of the sites maintained their usual numbers, and no surprises came out of the evening.

The biggest tournament, as usual was the Sunday Million on PokerStars, as three players walked away with six-figure payouts, and Peetoon won the entire event and took home more than $232K for the victory. Potentially life-changing money was awarded there, but all of the final table finishers deserve kudos for their accomplishments, all of which are listed below:

PokerStars


Sunday Warm-Up

As the list of Sunday events offered on PokerStars seems to grow continually, the Warm-Up can always be counted on to ring in the action on Sundays. Its $200 + $15 buy-in is standard, but its $750K guarantee is far and away better than most. And the players show up for it, as 4,236 did this week, and that number in turn pushed the prize pool up to $847,200. That number also pushed up the number of players who would be paid, and a total of 630 made it into the money. But at the final table, a significant six-figure sum awaited the ultimate winner, and after Don Pedro07 took second to ShiFtYFiNGeR, the latter grabbed nearly $133K for the victory.

1st place:    ShiFtYFiNGeR ($132,910.50)
2nd place:    Don Pedro07 ($98,698.80)
3rd place:    citrusjim ($69,894.00)
4th place:    Mexitexi ($47,866.80)
5th place:    sabbsezero ($36,006.00)
6th place:    melous ($27,534.00)
7th place:    badgergav ($19,062.00)
8th place:    Erasmus Hurt ($10,590.00)
9th place:    lausfloh ($6,777.60)

Sunday 1/4 Million
Another solid week for the cheapest tournament with the greatest guarantee was on tap for Sunday night. The Quarter Million offered a $250K guarantee for the low buy-in of $10 + $1, and there were 30,429 willing participants in the event, which actually propelled the prize pool up to $304,290. After the top 4,500 finishers were paid, the last four players standing came to a chip-chop agreement, which ended up allowing Pottmar to grab the most money for finishing second, though winner kilmarta still took home more than $19K for the win.

1st place:    kilmarta ($19,485.93)
2nd place:    Pottmar ($23,414.87)
3rd place:    RodrigoW22 ($13,722.19)
4th place:    FBorges ($13,962.95)
5th place:    dijjoelz ($7,607.25)
6th place:    bykota11 ($4,564.35)
7th place:    elitesauce ($3,042.90)
8th place:    Kinch18 ($2,282.17)
9th place:    LASTHAND420 ($1,521.45)

D.N.G. Sunday Special
It’s not the cheapest of the Sunday tournaments, but in comparison to other big buy-ins, this is a bargain, and it continues to grow in popularity. The $300K guarantee is offered in the DNG Sunday Special for only $50 + $5 buy-in, and this week it attracted 6,899 players to the virtual tables. That pushed the prize pool past its set guarantee to $344,950, and it gave the top 1,080 players the opportunity to cash out for more than they invested. At the final table, the last two players were able to make a deal, and in the end, it paid second place duss2320 more than winner Bugenhagen76, but the latter walked away with the title.

1st place:    Bugenhagen76 ($34,000.00)
2nd place:    duss2320 ($37,165.61)
3rd place:    portal pyram ($19,317.20)
4th place:    mils3 ($15,867.70)
5th place:    FlushKlaus ($12,418.20)
6th place:    mcatdog ($8,968.70)
7th place:    tizzle26 ($6,036.62)
8th place:    masterxcvt ($3,966.92)
9th place:    croll103 ($2,414.65)

$1 Million Turbo Takedown
It happens like clockwork on the last Sunday of each month, and players anxiously await the opportunity to participate in the Turbo Takedown. Why? Besides the prize pool being set at $1 million, players buy in for Frequent Player Points only. Anyone with 3,000 FPP’s can play and compete not only for the million dollars, but for the chance to take bounties placed on the heads of Team PokerStars Pros and to grab the Audi TT luxury car awarded to the eventual winner. This month, there were 13,864 players who had enough points to play, and 5,000 of them were paid a cash prize for finishing in the last bunch of players. And in the end, BigFlopper01 took down the entire tournament for that Audi and $60K in cash.

1st place:    BigFlopper01 ($60,000.00 + Audi TT)
2nd place:    DESS66 ($40,000.00)
3rd place:    juandadi ($30,000.00)
4th place:    taylor44770 ($25,000.00)
5th place:    tuffa1 ($20,000.00)
6th place:    Sonderskonig ($17,500.00)
7th place:    JFKme ($15,000.00)
8th place:    LochemLand ($12,500.00)
9th place:    vzgo ($10,000.00)

Sunday Million
The Sunday Million tournament saw a decrease in registration the prior week, and it made up for it this week. The $1.5 million guarantee for a buy-in of $200 + $15 attracted 8,190 players, and that made the prize pool even more impressive when it landed at $1,638,000. The amount was enough to pay out the top 1,170 finishers in the tournament, and it was at the final table where three players were guaranteed six-figure payouts. The final two decided to work a chip-chop deal prior to finishing the event, and in very little time, Peetoon secured a victory over FightnIrishh to claim more than $232K in prize money.

1st place:    Peetoon ($232,362.11)
2nd place:    FightnIrishh ($193,517,89)
3rd place:    RedIceRap ($122,850.00)
4th place:    trionojnika ($82,555.20)
5th place:    Randers ($65,520.00)
6th place:    Bad Habbitz ($49,140.00)
7th place:    smsuwrestler ($32,760.00)
8th place:    jsonelin ($18,837.00)
9th place:    CON28 ($12,694.50)

Sunday 500

The highest stakes of all of the Sunday majors appears in the form of the Sunday 500 each week, with its $500K guarantee for a $500 + $30. This week, more players seemed to opt for the cheaper options, as only 991 players entered this one. For the first time in many weeks, the guarantee wasn’t met, so PokerStars added money to the prize pool to give the players an overlay. The $500K was used to pay out 144 of the top players, and well-knowns like Faraz “The-Toilet 0” made the final table, though it was Pokerl(eviL who topped them all and beat degord2 in the heads-up match to take the title and more than $87K.

1st place:    Pokerl)eviL ($87,400.00)
2nd place:    degord2 ($63,500.00)
3rd place:    brianm15 ($47,500.00)
4th place:    birs320 ($35,500.00)
5th place:    jeff710 ($25,000.00)
6th place:    Cairns1987 ($20,000.00)
7th place:    VerySexual ($15,000.00)
8th place:    The-Toilet 0 ($10,000.00)
9th place:    magom1968 ($5,750.00)

Sunday 2nd Chance
The last of the Sunday tournaments to get underway on PokerStars was the Second Chance event, so those who busted early from other tournaments could get in on the last $250K guarantee of the night for a $200 + $15 buy-in. And there were 1,505 takers this week, which propelled the prize pool up to $301,000 to be distributed among the last 171 players in the event. The final table found the last three players making a deal for the remainder of the prize money, and though Duffman08 took the biggest chunk of it, Mateywin eked out a win and took home more than $40K for it.

1st place:    Mateywin ($40,537.58)
2nd place:    Duffman08 ($43,053.12)
3rd place:    bluechip2000 ($40,090.20)
4th place:    N1lmar ($22,575.00)
5th place:    jersey716 ($15,802.50)
6th place:    PokerThun ($12,792.50)
7th place:    miagoo ($9,782.50)
8th place:    Pyjamarse ($6,772.50)
9th place:    hg18l7 ($4,214.00)

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

The first of the four major Full Tilt Poker events on Sunday night was the popular Brawl, with its $240 + $16 buy-in that places a $40 bounty on the head of each player for the knockout event. It also boasts of a $400K guarantee each week, and there were 2,587 players interested in the challenge this time around, making for an actual prize pool of $517,400. When play moved through to the money, there were 279 players taking pieces of it, but in the end, it was planetearf who defeated psfishfat to take down the top prize of just over $105K.

1st place:    planetearf ($105,032.20)
2nd place:    psfishfat ($67,779.40)
3rd place:    HighLikeMike ($50,187.80)
4th place:    matyr3al ($37,770.20)
5th place:    elitewrestla ($26,387.40)
6th place:    hunyuk65 ($17,591.60)
7th place:    blanks plz ($11,900.20)
8th place:    cod meharly ($8,278.40)
9th place:    ash4simone ($6,208.80)

$750,000 Guarantee
It was another solid week for the biggest guarantee on the Full Tilt Sunday Majors lineup, but it still wasn’t enough to surge past the guarantee. For $200 + $16, players took their shots at the $750K guarantee, but when registration stopped at 3,443, it meant that FTP had to donate to the prize pool to make it an even $750,000, and that meant an overlay for the players. As the hours flew past, the last 522 players cashed out, and the final three came to a chip-chop deal that left McNallyville with the biggest portion of the money, despite losing to pojai who won the tournament and grabbed nearly $91K for it.

1st place:    pojai ($90,811.00)
2nd place:    McNallyville ($98,471.04)
3rd place:    Capped1 ($76,255.46)
4th place:    RealJobs_LOL ($41,400.00)
5th place:    1EyedPegLeg ($31,050.00)
6th place:    Shorty81 ($23,025.00)
7th place:    AnalFetto ($17,250.00)
8th place:    Mawrich ($13,500.00)
9th place:    Gbdank ($10,050.00)

The Sunday Mulligan
One of the longest running of the Sunday majors is the Mulligan, and its regular stable of players came to the tables for this week’s version of it. The $200 + $16 buy-in event with a $200K guarantee found itself with 1,294 players on the registration list, which made for an actual prize pool of $258,800. After the money bubble burst, the top 135 players were paid, and action went through the final table with TheBrain defeating SavePluto9 to take the title and nearly $57K in prize money outright.

1st place:    TheBrain ($56,936.00)
2nd place:    SavePluto9 ($36,232.00)
3rd place:    ICALL4EVER ($26,203.50)
4th place:    ALEE24 ($21,027.50)
5th place:    SLYEYES35 ($15,864.44)
6th place:    AmplifiedSample ($11,646.00)
7th place:    ReaverMicro ($7,505.20)
8th place:    LucyWhyte ($5,434.80)
9th place:    Endomatic ($3,882.00)

$200K Double Deuce
A significant rise in registration for this tournament put it ever closer to rising above its guarantee. After struggling for several weeks, numbers in the $20 + $2 Double Deuce with the $200K guarantee rose several hundred players, as 9,588 of them took to the tables this week. Though that still required Full Tilt Poker to contribute a bit in order to make the prize pool an even $200,000, the players received a bit of an overlay, and the 1,350 of them who cashed took home pieces of it. And in the very end, the final five players were able to come to a financial arrangement before BOREDPLAYS went on to win the tournament and grab more than $25K for it.

1st place:    BOREDPLAYS ($25,169.01)
2nd place:    Slytlytilted ($16,861.62)
3rd place:    Erast Petrovich ($18,649.94)
4th place:    GBecks ($13,613.68)
5th place:    mandarin_gobi ($10,945.75)
6th place:    crzysavage ($5,600.00)
7th place:    edd5556 ($4,000.00)
8th place:    Foinavon ($2,860.00)
9th place:    pal carajo ($2,022.00)

UB Poker

$200K Guaranteed

The big UB Poker offering on Sundays seemed to have found its stride. After a tough summer of not meeting the guarantee most weeks, the new trend was to go over by more than 100 players. This week was no different, as the $200 + $15 tournament with a $200K guarantee in place rounded up 1,155 players for its event, and that brought the prize pool up to $231,000. With that, the top 108 players were paid for their deep runs in the tournament. And in the end, the top two finishers seemed to have come to a deal for the majority of the final table prize money, though BOSKO1111 did finish on top and looked to take home nearly $51K for that feat.

1st place:    BOSKO1111 ($50,796.90)
2nd place:    SKANKY980 ($29,960.70)
3rd place:    SEBBAU ($20,674.50)
4th place:    1TROY1 ($14,899.50)
5th place:    CAHNDIHUNTER ($12,358.50)
6th place:    TILTTHEBHO ($10,048.50)
7th place:    SIROCCO_ ($7,738.50)
8th place:    IMHIDONKS ($5,544.00)
9th place:    ELLWOODINHO ($3,927.00)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

The roller coaster ride that is the attendance scale for the big Bodog Sunday event was in full effect again this week. After a solid previous showing, registration dropped to only 572 players this week for the $150 + $12 buy-in event, which forced Bodog to deliver some money to the prize pool to make it an even $100,000 to match the guarantee. But that did give the players an overlay, and in the end, that was enough to pay out the last 63 players who survived hours of play. And those who made it to the final table were aiming for the $25K first place prize, which ultimately went to ctsrules for defeating ph33sh1nGT1mE.

1st place:    ctsrules ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    ph33sh1nGT1mE ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    darknightcoming ($9,500.00)
4th place:    navyus ($7,000.00)
5th place:    MrTeal110 ($5,500.00)
6th place:    pkb6786 ($4,500.00)
7th place:    jahillyaman ($3,500.00)
8th place:    ORD TWR 1 ($2,200.00)
9th place:    rbry1401 ($1,700.00)
