Super Poker Sunday 09/05: Shaun Deeb Takes Down 750K Guarantee on Full Tilt

Share this
The list of Sunday regulars found itself with quite the adjustment on the first weekend in September, as online poker was faced with another annual installment of the World Championship of Online Poker on PokerStars. That caused the removal of four of Stars’ major online poker tournaments for the duration of the WCOOP series, as players were encouraged to play those once-a-year events. And with three weeks of WCOOP on tap, the Sunday schedule looked to be quite a bit lighter until the big series concluded.

One might have thought that players would flock to Full Tilt for their regular events, but the two events that continue to suffer registration woes - the $750K Guarantee and the Double Deuce - saw drops in their numbers yet again, forcing bigger overlays. Even UB Poker dipped below its required number of players to meet its guarantee this week, and an overlay was offered for its $200K Guarantee as well. Whether it was the live tournament options in places like London and Cannes that drew players’ attention away, or the WCOOP on PokerStars, the players simply didn’t show up in usual numbers on the other sites this week.

With the Sunday Million out of commission for the duration of WCOOP, the $750K Guarantee did have its chance to shine, though, as the tournament that awarded the biggest prize of the regular Sunday events. First place prize money of more than $132K went to tedsfishfry, better known in real life as Shaun Deeb, for the win, and it was the only six-figure payout of the weekend of the tournaments listed here. Also of note was HANKDAHTANK, an online pro signed to the UB Poker roster, who was the only sponsored pro to make a final table in the regular lineup.

Sunday Warm-Up

With the World Championship of Online Poker on tap for the next few weeks, the ever-popular Warm-Up was one of several tournaments put on hiatus for that time period. With so many options each day for equal or better caliber events on the WCOOP schedule, the Warm-Up would be missing from the list until the end of the three-week extravaganza.

Sunday 1/4 Million
There was no reason to take the Quarter Million off the docket due to WCOOP, as its buy-in doesn’t compare to those events. For only $10 + $1, players have the chance to go for their share of a $250K guarantee each week. Though registration was down a bit this week, the tournament still brought 29,179 players to the tables, which made for a $291,790 prize pool. After the top 4,500 players were in the money and the final table eventually played out, it was sacarey02 who defeated jonase40 to turn his $11 into a $26K payday.

1st place:    sacarey02 ($26,288.25)
2nd place:    jonase40 ($18,061.80)
3rd place:    pencilnose ($13,130.55)
4th place:    amandamj ($10,212.65)
5th place:    ryski9 ($7,294.75)
6th place:    ZePalma ($4,376.85)
7th place:    FILTHY_RIVER ($2,917.90)
8th place:    Cr4zy_Serb ($2,188.42)
9th place:    Wolf Czar ($1,458.95)

D.N.G. Sunday Special
One of the two regular tournaments to remain on the schedule did so because of its low buy-in as compared to other typical Sunday events. The DNG Sunday Special offers a weekly $300K guarantee for the bargain buy-in of $50 + $5, and the turnout this week was another solid number of 6,944. When their money was pooled, it added up to an actual prize amount of $347,200, out of which the final 1,080 players were paid. And the final table saw zaxman13 lead the way to the winner’s circle, ultimately defeating Bastard44 to get there and claim more than $42K for the feat.

1st place:    zaxman13 ($42,705.60)
2nd place:    Bastard44 ($28,921.76)
3rd place:    skalymut ($19,443.20)
4th place:    qjuice14 ($15,971.20)
5th place:    4mc4 ($12,499.20)
6th place:    GloRyKeepah ($9,027.20)
7th place:    stiCKypiFF14 ($6,076.00)
8th place:    gantorius ($3,992.00)
9th place:    eeeooor ($2,430.40)

Sunday Million
The second event to be removed from the weekly schedule due to WCOOP activities was the ever-popular Sunday Million with its $1.5 million guarantee, but since WCOOP offered similar buy-ins and guarantees, this one went on hiatus with the aforementioned Warm-Up. It will resume after the three weeks of WCOOP concludes.

Sunday 500
The high-stakes option on the regular Sunday line-up was also put on hold until WCOOP events end, as players are encouraged to invest their money in the numerous nightly WCOOP options. The Sunday 500 will return at the end of September.

Sunday 2nd Chance
The fourth and final of the Sunday majors to be put on hiatus due to WCOOP activities was the Second Chance event. It will also return at the end of September with the other regular Sunday tournaments.

Full Tilt Poker

The Sunday Brawl

For Full Tilt players, the Sunday regulars were up and running as usual, and the first up was the Brawl, the knockout tournament that offered a $40 bounty on each player’s head and a substantial $400K guarantee for those willing to put up the $240 + $16 to enter. This week, the registration number showed 2,820 players in the field, which boosted the prize pool to $564,000, and the top 279 players would take shares of that money. At the final table, the last three players standing came to a chip-chop agreement before mralan2950 ended up winning the tournament for a $91K payout.

1st place:    mralan2950 ($91,274.44)
2nd place:    justakid69 ($86,153.31)
3rd place:    asaedbomrules ($65,656.25)
4th place:    JustCuts ($41,172.00)
5th place:    Antonio18 ($28,764.00)
6th place:    dx2celt ($19,176.00)
7th place:    TulioJaudy ($12,972.00)
8th place:    ash4simone ($9,024.00)
9th place:    Nuggett823 ($6,768.00)

$750,000 Guarantee
The biggest guarantee of the Sunday lineup on Full Tilt was the regular $750K guarantee, and it only required a standard buy-in of $200 + $16. After weeks of trouble hitting its mark, another slight drop in registration brought only 3,397 players to the tables this week, which forced Full Tilt to add more money to the prize pool to bring it to an even $750,000. The overlay was good for the players, especially the 522 who cashed in the tournament, and when it all came to a head at the final table, Shaun “tedsfishfry” Deeb was able to defeat lilfishy897 in a battle of the fishes that awarded well over $132K to tedsfishfry.

1st place:    tedsfishfry ($132,787.50)
2nd place:    lilfishy897 ($80,250.00)
3rd place:    phat_cat1 ($52,500.00)
4th place:    codrinel ($41,400.00)
5th place:    nanQ ($31,050.00)
6th place:    rzz22 ($23,025.00)
7th place:    Shaman013 ($17,250.00)
8th place:    iulani ($13,500.00)
9th place:    kbetinho ($10,050.00)

The Sunday Mulligan
Players looking for a straight-up $200 + $16 buy-in and $200K guarantee found it with the ever-reliable Mulligan on Full Tilt. And many of the same players who show up each week were there, as registration stopped at 1,230 players, meaning the prize pool was set at $246,000. That was enough to pay out the last 135 players standing, and when all was said and done, this is punny was able to survive the final table and take out heads-up opponent PrishChips31 to win the tournament and grab more than $54K for the victory.

1st place:    this is punny ($54,120.00)
2nd place:    PrishChips31 ($34,440.00)
3rd place:    perky264 ($24,907.50)
4th place:    zestfulyclean ($19,987.50)
5th place:    S_Dot111 ($15,079.80)
6th place:    khunglongvoi ($11,070.00)
7th place:    AnaP14 ($7,134.00)
8th place:    OUEmoKid ($5,166.00)
9th place:    Viktor Jensen ($3,690.00)

$200K Double Deuce
The best bet for players’ money on the Sunday line-up on Full Tilt was always the Double Deuce, where a meager $20 + $2 buy-in gave players a chance at the $200K prize pool. But registration had been dropping for some time in this event, and this week it took a dive with 831 fewer players than the week before. That meant an even bigger overlay than usual for the players when the site contributed money to the prize pool to make it an even $200,000. There were payouts made to the top 1,350 finishers, and serious money awaited the top players. The final two settled on a deal before Timaty beat darkola82 to take the title and more than $26K for the win.

1st place:    Timaty ($26,017.28)
2nd place:    darkola82 ($25,982.72)
3rd place:    Ughsk ($14,800.00)
4th place:    jarkos ($10,640.00)
5th place:    KaKaFC22 ($7,800.00)
6th place:    justdontbluffme ($5,600.00)
7th place:    O_KMA_O ($4,000.00)
8th place:    sweetleafblunt ($2,860.00)
9th place:    SHAKEdemDREDS ($2,022.00)

UB Poker

$200K Guaranteed

It had been awhile since the big Sunday UB Poker tournament didn’t meet its guarantee, as the time since the WSOP has seen some significant numbers in the event. But this week, the number dropped, as only 915 players put up the $200 + $15 to have a shot at the $200K guarantee. And that forced UB to contribute some money to the prize pool and offer an overlay to the players, the top 90 of whom were paid from that pool. One of the UB-sponsored online pros, HANKDAHTANK, made it to the final table and finished in eighth place, but the heads-up match found only LILA_S and KIDO5626 in battle until LILA_S was able to win it and take home nearly $45K.

1st place:    LILA_S ($44,920.00)
2nd place:    KIDO5626 ($26,900.00)
3rd place:    CARPE_MANANA ($18,300.00)
4th place:    JOHNE147 ($12,900.00)
5th place:    KERVO5 ($10,900.00)
6th place:    BELIEVER1982 ($8,900.00)
7th place:    BEATBOXED ($6,900.00)
8th place:    HANKDAHTANK ($4,900.00)
9th place:    DARKCHECK_ ($3,400.00)

Bodog

$100K Guaranteed

Another week of an unpredictable turnout for the big $100K guarantee on Bodog this week, as registration dropped again, this time to 515 players. When that number was mixed with the $150 + $12 buy-ins, the prize pool had a larger-than-usual overlay for the players as the site added some cash to make it an even $100,000. The top 63 players were paid long before the final table was reached, and the tournament concluded when StevenKarp defeated Nielsml to take the title and $25K in cold hard cash.

1st place:    StevenKarp ($25,000.00)
2nd place:    Nielsml ($15,000.00)
3rd place:    Levrini ($9,500.00)
4th place:    Ozone23 ($7,000.00)
5th place:    brownrugby420 ($5,500.00)
6th place:    shamil ($4,500.00)
7th place:    chastang ($3,500.00)
8th place:    cmizzles3687 ($2,200.00)
9th place:    billsg702 ($1,700.00)
