Super Poker Sunday: PokerStars Sunday Million ends with Sean Getzwiller Ousting Jake Bazeley

Super Poker Sunday
Share this

Sunday's PokerStars Sunday Million always fills the tables, usually bringing more than 7,000 players to the virtual felt every week. On a rare occasion, a well-known pro manages to make it to the winner's circle but this week's event saw two top players battle heads-up for the title.

Sean Getzwiller and Jacob Bazeley squared off after the starting field of 7,748 was carved down to two in the Sunday Million. Getzwiller, a WSOP bracelet winner, took down the title and a first-place prize of $232,443.

The PokerStars Blog reported that Getzwiller had a big lead on Bazeley when heads-up play began. The terms of a deal were discussed but Bazeley didn't accept it. A few pots were dealt out before a flop of {J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{2-Clubs} hit the table. A war started with Bazeley three-betting all-in holding the {K-Spades}{10-Diamonds}. Getzwiller called holding the {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts} — the {A-Diamonds} turn and {4-Spades} river finished it off to leave Getzwiller holding all the reasons for playing.

Joseph "bigegypt" Elpayaa, Jonas "clowndick" Mackoff, Rens "Rens02" Feenstra, Peter "Se7enTr3y" Akery, and Casey "bigdogpckt5s" Jarzabek were among those finding success on Sunday.
