BarneyR2005 wins almost a quarter-million in Sunday Million

Tuesday, 27 July 2010

Now that the 2010 World Series of Poker is truly over for all but nine players, the big online tournaments have been building momentum again. A stellar example, as always, is the PokerStars Sunday Million $1.5m guaranteed that saw 8,319 entrants create a total prize pool of more than $1.66m.

BarneyR2005 came to the final nine of the Sunday Million at fourth place in the chip counts, pretty much bang on the average stack with a little over 30 big blinds. The chip leader was B Buddy who had accumulated over 20,000,000 in chips since the money bubble burst at 1,260 players.

It was inevitable that B Buddy would get heads-up but BarneyR2005 did well to get there at all, especially holding a slight chip lead over the once insurmountable stack of B Buddy. In the heads-up confrontation the eventual winner’s aggression was enough to dominate the match and get him to over 70m in chips before the final hand:

B Buddy pushed all-in with A7o and BarneyR2005 called with 97s for a 3-1 underdog matchup before the flop. Nevermind – a 9-7-K flop sorted him out and shipped him the tournament, with no deals made the first prize was almost a quarter-million dollars.

The full final table payouts were as follows:
1st place: BarneyR2005 ($244,749.39)
2nd place: B Buddy ($178,858.50)
3rd place: nenita02 ($124,785.00)
4th place: RonaldKosh ($83,190.00)
5th place: Cukbandit ($66,552.00)
6th place: bostero27 ($49.914.00)
7th place: kirbyi17 ($33,276.00)
8th place: dehoo ($18,301.80)
9th place: BWFCLEE ($12,894.45)
