Second time lucky for vietcong01 in Sunday Million
Monday, 25 January 2010
Juan Antonio Maceiras – not a big name in the poker world, but this online MTT grinder known as vietcong01 at PokerStars has accomplished a remarkable feat – his $255,954 score for winning the PokerStars Sunday Million is his second victory in the huge tournament.
Over 8,000 players turned out to create a nine-handed final table after 35 levels of play; 150,000/300,000/30,000:
Seat 1: shumeilove (4,834,550 in chips)
Seat 2: gettn deep (22,264,499 in chips)
Seat 3: Benba (16,582,508 in chips)
Seat 4: vietcong01 (6,297,783 in chips)
Seat 5: LeftyStacks (3,570,076 in chips)
Seat 6: GodsTeacher (4,670,738 in chips)
Seat 7: ShiP ThA $$$ (12,071,556 in chips)
Seat 8: Luigi da BP (3,511,903 in chips)
Seat 9: EgorkaV (13,196,387 in chips)
Juan made it to heads-up play against EgorkaV with a monstrous 6-1 chip lead, making his second-time victory near certain. It was only as the two decided to discuss a deal that a T8Q flop fell, causing EgorkaV to check-raise bluff a gutshot. Unfortunately for him, Juan held T8 and wasn’t going anywhere. Just like that, two rag cards later, it was done.
As well as taking sixth place in this tournament last year, Juan Antonio “vietcong01” Maceiras has won two separate PokerStars Sunday Million tournaments, taking home over a quarter of a million dollars for his last victory.
