OK, he probably didn’t go all-in 2,526 times but it can’t be too far off. The Sunday Million on PokerStars yesterday attracted 6,383 players to give us a prize pool of more than seven figures as well as a first place prize touching on $200,000. With 987 players paid, even making the money was just the start of another large-field tournament.

At the final table, all in 2526 came with a pretty average stack and chipped up nicely until we were five-handed when he won a big lopsided flip holding A-T to A-K. He came from behind with broadway to take the pot and the chip lead. Three-handed, the final players made a deal that gave chip leader tollgate $153k and both Janosch and all in 2526 $133k. The eventual winner’s A-T came through again, winning against the slightly-less-dominating 4-2o of Janosch to give him a nearly 2-1 chip lead heads-up against tollgate.

Eventually, allin 2526 got it in as good as you can get, holding A-A to A-5 on a 4-5-7 board. He held and took the extra $20,000 set aside post-deal for the winner. The full results are as follows:

1. all in 2526 (Israel) *$153,839.22
2. tollgate (Australia) *$153,837.36
3. Janosch (Austria) *$132,243.92
