Brit wins PokerStars Sunday Million

Brit wins PokerStars Sunday Million

Monday, 30 July 2012

It proved to be a great weekend for British players in the Sunday Majors this weekend with players from the UK taking down big scores at both PokerStars and OnGame. Craig McCorkell took the honours in the OnGame $150k Champion Chip tournament while over at PokerStars it was welshwizard9 who scooped the Sunday Million.

Welshwizard9 outlasted a massive 6,153 runner field to boost his bankroll by just over $187k. The Brit went into heads up play with Poland's BoBoNe93 with a three to one chip lead but parity was restored after an early double up for the Pole.

Despite relatively deep stacks it didn't take long to find a winner with welshwizard on the right side of a flip with pocket 6s against BoBoNe93's AQ.

The final table positions and payouts were as follows:

1st welshwizard9 (UK) - $187,177.77
2nd BoBoNe93 (Poland) - $138,442.50
3rd 1jos2 (Netherlands) - $98,448.00
4th cobramoney (Austria) - $67,683.00
5th Richard Toth (Hungary) - $51,685.20
6th Popiedejopie (Netherlands) - $39,379.20
7th JeanGrae (Canada) - $27,073.20
8th ludvo777 (Slovakia) - $14,767.20
9th DSRasmussen (Denmark) - $9,537.15
