Vuki Wins $173,000 in PokerStars Sunday Million

Tuesday, 20 October 2009

On Sunday, 7,856 players stumped up the wonga to create a prize pool of $1,571,200 for the PokerStars Sunday Million event. Over 1,100 players made it into the money, with the final nine being decided after nine gruelling hours of play.

Seat 1: danistiofi (4,170,681 in chips)
Seat 2: mehmet deniz (2,964,590 in chips)
Seat 3: vuki (4,842,144 in chips)
Seat 4: (20,791,810 in chips)
Seat 5: madkins318 (15,163,969 in chips)
Seat 6: bigclout1 (2,389,658 in chips)
Seat 7: TheCronic420 (3,949,733 in chips)
Seat 8: BleedBlue33 (22,120,827 in chips)
Seat 9: kiramm (2,166,588 in chips)

With blinds at $125k/$250k at the start of the final table, eventual winner Vuki didn’t seem to be the favourite, but was by no means a write-off. A double-up followed by eliminating fifth-place finisher madkins318 saw his stack increase exponentially, but when the final three players cut a deal he was still on the short end of the stick:

Seat 3: vuki (14,073,644 in chips) = $143,427.67
Seat 4: (30,866,386 in chips) = $173,959.00
Seat 9: kiramm (33,619,970 in chips) = $178,965.36

After two all-ins and two split pots, vuki finally managed to not only double through but also take the chip lead after getting it in pre-flop with AJo against kiramm’s dominated A7. A blank board shipped the pot to Vuki, who then called the short-stacks shove with QQ against KJ, holding up to take the action heads-up with a near 2-1 chip lead.

Four hands later, it was over –’s Q6o was in bad shape against pocket sixes, and a king-high board couldn’t help proceedings. The full list of final table finishers and payouts is as follows:

1st place: vuki ($173,427.67)*
2nd place: ($173,959.00)*
3rd place: kiramm ($178,965.36)*
4th place: BleedBlue33 ($79,188.49)
5th place: madkins318 ($62,848.01)
6th place: TheCronic420 ($47,136.01)
7th place: danistiofi ($31,424.01)
8th place: mehmet deniz ($18,068.81)
