$190,000 To The Winner Of The Sunday Million

$190,000 To The Winner Of The Sunday Million

Wednesday, 14 January 2009

More than 8,000 players stumped up the $215 or satellited in to the Sunday Million last week, creating a first-place prize of nearly $190,000. The $1.5m guarantee was eclipsed by just over $153,000 for a total prize pool of $1,653,600.

The money bubble burst three hours in and the final table bubble was reached six hours later, after about 1,250 more people had collected some cash. Finally AceDesertRat finished 10th for $8.2k and the final table began.

The chip counts at the start of the final table were as follows:
Seat 1: dxu05 (11,409,512 in chips)
Seat 2: Tophandler (4,759,696 in chips)
Seat 3: chicokim (17,721,353 in chips)
Seat 4: U_TILT_ME (19,185,352 in chips)
Seat 5: Kappe85 (6,087,080 in chips)
Seat 6: g0lfa (6,811,907 in chips)
Seat 7: Sir_winalot9 (5,570,202 in chips)
Seat 8: livelikunger (3,078,872 in chips)
Seat 9: Mexxximum1 (8,056,026 in chips)

Eventually after tens of millions of tournament chips exchanged hands; it was only dxu05 and livelikunger. Both players agreed to a near-even money deal with livelikunger receiving only $10,000 more despite having $53m to dxu05’s $29m.

Eventually dxu05 pushed pre-flop with T9o and was called by the A3 of livelikunger. The board blanked out and livelikunger’s ace was good enough to win the extra $30,000 for the winner.

In addition Tmmy2win had a nice $92k score in the Sunday Warm-Up and b7zzy took down the Full Tilt Poker Sunday Brawl for $81,800.
