Sunday Million Anniversary

The world’s biggest live tournament in the World Series of Poker Main Event may have been the biggest news in poker over the weekend, yet the world’s biggest weekly online tournament also provided big fields and big money for some select players too.

The PokerStars Sunday Million is the pinnacle of all online weekly poker tournaments and regularly attracts fields of 6,000 upwards. It has a prize pool guarantee of $1 million but that figure is usually beaten by a few hundred thousand.

It attracts a mixture of professional and recreational players and is the most anticipated online event on a weekly basis.

Some of you may already know the result of the event but you can now watch the final table action below to see how that result was established. For those that do not know the result, we will of course not ruin it for you as we know that it spoils the fun for some.

The event on this occasion brought in an original field of 6,465 players that brought us a prize pool of $1,293,000 and the top 990 players taking home a slice of it. Of course, the bigger sums of money were on the final table with the winner set to take away the biggest chunk.

The player that began with the best chance of scoring the biggest payout was that of “stealwave” who had a chip count of 13,205,042 at the start of play, though he was not too far ahead of both “Neeeeek” and “nbolt” who had 12,188,693 and 11,905,917 respectively.

Deals are allowed in this event and it is very often that you see the top three or four players agreeing to a chop of that prize pool but on the odd occasion you get a player that would rather play for everything.
