Tuesday, 2 February 2010

PokerStars has once again set online poker records – this time they hosted their largest ever Sunday Million tournament as 19,377 players registered to create a prize pool of $3,875,400.

The lucky final nine arrived at the final table all swinging huge chipstacks at the 300,000/600,000/60,000 blind level:

Seat 1: hunter10999 (2,504,305 in chips)
Seat 2: Kostya 77777 (22,418,630 in chips)
Seat 3: OX45AL (21,630,488 in chips)
Seat 4: celofyz33 (37,219,555 in chips)
Seat 5: Gmelkonyan (15,680,889 in chips)
Seat 6: OBVAMENTS (35,982,924 in chips)
Seat 7: austinlewis (18,538,063 in chips)
Seat 8: eMarkM (31,496,958 in chips)
Seat 9: S.Takmaziyan (8,298,188 in chips)

Heads-up action began between OX45AL and celofyz33, with the latter holding a nearly 2-1 chip lead. However, a 3-bet pot and a Ah-7d-Qh flop was all it took as celofyz33 made a semi-bluff with 9h-3h and OX45AL called with A6o, winning the hand by fading hearts and taking the chip lead.

Finally, celofyz33 pushed with Ac-4c but his opponent had picked up QQ. No ace was forthcoming and celofyz33 took an incredible $332,540 for second place while OX45AL earned himself over half a million:

1st place: OX45AL ($550,011.29)
2nd place: celofyz33 ($332,540.00)
3rd place: eMarkM ($244,616.42)

8th place: austinlewis ($44,227.82)
