Super Poker Sunday: "drUPSWING" Wins $1,038,540 in 8th Anniversary Sunday Million

Super Poker Sunday
Share this

Two Germans battled it out for millions of dollars in the massive 8th Anniversary Sunday Million over the weekend. Those two players were not the regular name-brand players that hit the media frequently, such as: Philipp Gruissem, Tobias Reinkemeier, Fabian Quoss, Niklas Heinecker, Max Altergott, and Martin Finger.

PokerStars celebrated the anniversary of the flagship event with an $8 million guaranteed prize tool added to the special event and 46,586 players found themselves fighting for a piece of a prize pool that rang up at a massive $9,317,200.

The battle was hard fought but in the end "DrUPSWING" and Fabio "hdjgkfkgsdl" Sperling made a deal early Monday morning and DrUPSWING won the title and a prize of $1,038,540. Sperling took home $877,090, and the other seven final table players each walked away with six-figure scores.

The 8th Anniversary Sunday Million final table full report can be found on the PokerStars Blog.

Sunday was a good day for Peter "Apathy123" Jetten, Steve "HR_Dub" Williams, Simon "ministerborg" Ravnsbaek, and Griffin "Flush_Entity" Benger too!
