PokerStars Sunday Million awards $236,000

Monday, 9 November 2009

There may have been some sort of final table going on in the Rio at Vegas on Saturday, but the day after we were mostly concerned with the final table of the PokerStars Sunday Million.

The tournament saw a 7,887 strong crowd sign up to create a first-place prize of $236,000 and an overall prize pool of more than $1.56m. With this came the news that next week, PokerStars were adding an extra million dollars to the Sunday Million prize pool.

Hours into the tournament, the nine remaining players from the 7,887 took their places at the final table with Hevad Khan hosting proceedings. He’s much quieter online without so many Red Bulls.

Seat 1: tnetter (13124166 in chips)
Seat 2: Lucelsar (3030095 in chips)
Seat 3: huebiheftig (7499506 in chips)
Seat 4: gibler321 (6241755 in chips)
Seat 5: Osorno01 (13777775 in chips)
Seat 6: Justin1836 (5536385 in chips)
Seat 7: popotibo (8654580 in chips)
Seat 8: agriffrod (12522107 in chips)
Seat 9: fpmj (8483631 in chips)

Eventually, Justin1836 and agriffrod made it to heads-up play, but it took just one hand to decide the winner as they got it in with Ad-6c and Ah-Th respectively. The 3c-8c-4d flop was safe for agriffrod’s dominating AT, but the running clubs on the turn and river shipped the $236k prize to Justin1836 with a flush.
