PA Sunday Majors: Winter Series Begins With Overlays Galore

0
'FrosyTheProsty' topped the $200 buy-in Sunday Special as part of the PokerStars PA Winter Series.

Online poker players in Pennsylvania saw a bit of a prize pool bump this weekend as the PokerStars PA Winter Series kicked off with bigger guarantees. Instead of the usual $100 buy-in Sunday Special, players got to take a stab at a $200 buy-in event with a $50,000 guarantee.

The Sunday Special SE drew 246 total entries from 175 unique players but still fell $4,244 of meeting the $50,000 guarantee. ‘FrosyTheProsty‘ earned $9,617.42 for the outright victory while ‘and_porter‘ took home $7,168.35 as the runner-up. Third place finisher ‘chrisc15201‘ had to settle for $5,343.01.

The Sunday Warm-Up also had an overlay – but it was just a single player’s worth of buy-ins. 274 total entries from 210 unique players pushed the collected prize pool to $7,480.20 – just $19.80 short of the $7,500 guarantee. Topping that field earned ‘wnunley‘ a $1,426.04 score while ‘hefnerrrr‘ fell one spot short and took home $1,045.13. ‘TABLECAPTAINNN‘ banked $766.08 as the third place finisher.

The overlay theme continued in the $10 Sunday Storm. Drawing 463 total entries from 327 unique entries meant the collected prize pool fell $786.70 short of the $5,000 guarantee. ‘seanm972‘ beat ‘Tucker16206‘ heads-up to win $892.96 while the runner-up banked $627.60. Bronze medalist ‘PetCheetah101‘ earned $441.28.

The biggest buy-in event on Sunday’s slate managed to avoid the overlay curse. The 38 unique entries accounted for 55 total entries and build the prize pool all the way up to $12,815, beating the $10,000 guarantee. ‘deadtosolve‘, who started 2020 with back-to-back wins in the Sunday Special, added a Sunday High Roller title to his growing collection and $4,570.37 to his bankroll by topping the field. ‘CL91129‘ earned $2,818.43 as the runner-up while ‘WallsTalkin‘ rounded out the podium finishers and earned $1,738.06.

The Winter Series $30 Mini Sunday Special cruised past the $15,000 guarantee thanks to 740 total entries from 532 runners. The lion’s share of the $20,202 prize pool went to ‘BigBetBully‘ who got $3,440.29 for the outright victory. ‘Myrmidon45‘ ended up with $2,521.40 as the second place finisher and ‘Slevidge‘ earned $1,848.18 for falling two spots short of a victory.
