POKERSTARS SUNDAY MILLION AWARDS HUGE PAYDAY
As part of 10th anniversary celebrations.
Pokerstars’ Sunday Million 10th Anniversary celebrations’ $10 million guarantee on this past Sunday’s tournament has led to Canada’s ‘a.urli’ pocketing a staggering $970,000 after 15-and-a-half-hours of play and a four-handed final table deal all on a single $215 buy-in.
A whopping 22,000 players took their seats at around 2,500 tables on Sunday afternoon with 55,059 total entries received following a surprise twist that did away with the usual freezeout after late registration and allowed players a re-entry option.
The total prize pool amounted to $11,011,800, the third-largest prize pool in a decade's worth of Sunday Millions, paying out the top 8,208 places.
Whittled down to the last four, tournament play paused briefly as ‘a.urli’, ‘prophetdream’, ‘mladenova62’ and ‘canario508’ negotiated a four-way chop with $2,85 million up for play. After numerous attempts, the quartet settled on a deal that left $100,000 still to play for.
Ultimately ‘a.urli’ emerged victorious in heads-up play defeating ‘mladenova62’ and winning the extra $100,000.
