Super Poker Sunday: 900 Millionth Tournament celebration at PokerStars

Super Poker Sunday
Share this

PokerStars always has the goods going on! The world's leading online poker site celebrates every milestone event and adds fun, excitement, and loads of goodies and additional guaranteed cash to the prize pools — and so it was on this Sunday past. There was more than $100,000 on the tables at PokerStars in the way of cash, live event packages, and $100,000 in added tournament tickets!

The running of the historic 900 millionth tournament at PokerStars found more than 18,700 players joining in the race and a deal was reached between three players after 14 hours of play. Each of the three took home a minimum of $152,000. UK player Dan "judgedredd13" Charlton was one of the final three, but Canada's "earlgrey23" claimed the title when the last card was dealt.

The team over at UK PokerNews.com added additional news to the report: Charlton’s $153,681 score was the biggest of his online poker career and moved him up the ladder in career cashes to the $1.5 million mark. Charlton previous best score came in 2009 in the PokerStars Super Tuesday for $71,750 and he just surged past that record high.

Louis "lhennessey" Hennessey, Simon "ministerborg" Ravnsbaek, Andreas "daskalos20" Christoforou, Balazs "birs320" Botond, Michael "StrungOut1" Wasserman, and Martin "filfedra" Staszko, were headliners as far as other notables scoring big paydays on Sunday — Staszko took down the PokerStars Sunday Supersonic for $56,399.
