Super Poker Sunday: Jose Carlos Garcia wins Sunday Million

Super Poker Sunday
Share this

PokerStars' Sunday Million brought more than 9,000 players to the flagship Sunday event and the final table was shock-full of well-known poker pros.

Marcel "Mr. Sparco" Vonk, B]Tomasz "Sphinx87" Cybulski[/B], Michael "mossified84" Skomac, and Oliver "OJLimpsinn" Prior — all regular tournament players — made seats at the final table with a carrot of $250,000 dangling for the last player standing. Poland's Jose Carlos "TryToExploit" Garcia and Australia's Steve "Stev0L_" Leonard were the last two of the group that had a shot at the carrot.

When heads-up play started Garcia was at a 5.5-to-1 chip disadvantage but managed to double up twice through Leonard. A deal was made that gave $219,698 to Leonard and $210,700 to Garcia and $20,000 was in the middle for the winner of the match. Garcia doubled through Leonard one more time and then eventually ended the battle when his {A-Spades}{Q-Clubs} stood up against Leonard's {Q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}.

The full Sunday Million recap can be found at the PokerStars Blog.

Several notables took home big scores this week too: Connor "negroblanco" Drinan, Karolis "g.karolis" Grybauskas, and Anthony "holdplz" Spinella. Drinan took down the $250K Guaranteed for $55,120 on Full Tilt Poker.
