Super Poker Sunday: "kofi89" Takes Down PokerStars Tournament Number One Billion

Super Poker sunday
Share this

A $109 buy-in event brought 34,081 players to the tables in celebration of PokerStars massive milestone event on Sunday — Tournament Number One Billion! The tournament packed an unheard of $2,000,000 guaranteed prize pool and leaped past that guarantee to award a prize pool of $3,408,100 to the top players. The prizes and cash were flowing as PokerStars celebrated in PokerStars fashion by giving out, not only the guaranteed prize pool, but also more than $200,000 in cash and prizes to randomly selected tables during the first two-and-a-half hours.

Uraguay's "kofi89" took down the win for $329,586 after almost 15 hours of play and Germany's "kaveh001" took home $241,566 for second place. Former Sunday 500 winner, Joas "No Limit NL" Mudde won $129,780 in the event by finishing in fourth place.

Sunday also found Michael "SilentPurple" MacHugh, Simon "ministerborg" Ravnsbaek, and Steve "Illini213" Barshak finding success in Super Poker Sunday's major tournaments. The results from the Sunday Majors on PokerStars, partypoker and WSOP.com:
