SUNDAY MAJORS: Chaos at partypoker, ‘ezepoker90’ Ships PokerStars HR

0
'ezepoker' had one of the biggest scores on a chaotic Sunday in the online poker world.

As the poker world watched the 2019 World Series of Poker final table get underway, the online poker scene was in the news as well; all be it for different reasons.

partypoker saw their online schedule thrown into disarray after a software crash across the entire network that affected not only poker but also their sports and casino offerings.

Despite the expected player grievances, Dusk Till Dawn owner & partypoker partner Rob Yong responded via Twitter and his forthrightness approach on the situation was met with all-around positivity. Yong stated the issues surrounding the software and said he would be happy to look into any complaints submitted.

Despite this, the online poker action did occur across multiple other clients, including PokerStars, 888poker, and GGPoker.

Russia and Brazil dominated the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million, after players from these two nations occupied the top five places. The guarantee was once again defeated as 10,983 entrants created a $1,098,200 prize pool. Brazil’s ‘DigoLuiz‘, ‘Galochina10‘ and ‘JúlioFantin‘ took fifth, fourth and third place respectively, with ‘JúlioFantin’ awarded the biggest prize of the three for $59,353.

The Russian duo of ‘Jigan7‘ and ‘kolobcheena‘ then agreed to a money-deal before the final battle commenced. ‘Jigan7’ was the unlucky last player to hit the rail and banked $85,742 for their share of the deal, as ‘kolobcheena’ was crowned this champion alongside $108,759.

NoHayMiedo*‘ defeated Philipp ‘philbort’ Gruissem heads-up to win the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller. A field of just 47 entrants created a $94,000 prize pool with the top five places paid. ‘SsicK_OnE‘ took fifth for $6,785, ‘WushuTM‘ fourth for $10,360 and ‘WhaTisL0v3‘ picked up the bronze for $15,819. An extra $12,000 was on the line in the final showdown, and it was German pro Gruissem who was unable to convert his deep run into victory and settled for $24,154 as runner-up, with ‘NoHayMiedo*’ banking $36,881 for the win.

ezepoker90‘ added another $70,000 to their steller online CV after victory in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller. The former WCOOP champion came through a 782 player-field and a heads-up match against ‘solanj‘ for the win. ‘ameliaroy007‘ exited in third place for $17,753 + $7,089 in bounties, before ‘solanj’ was the final departure for $24,220 + $7,177. ‘ezepoker90’ picked up the gold and the final bounty prize for $33,043 + $37,535.

Tomi ‘elmerixx’ Brouk won the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday Cooldown for $19,433 + $23,656 in bounties. World ranked #4 ‘C.Darwin2‘ claimed fourth place for $8,155 + $5,250, before ‘felipebeltra‘ departed in third for $10,892 + $2,875. ‘geokrinikali‘ then fell at the final hurdle for $14,549 + $9,781 and Brouk added another gold medal to his profile.

The $10k Sunday Blade once again returned to the GGPoker Sunday schedule after an absence and ‘Chun Lei Zhou‘ picked up the win from a 23 player-field for $116,569.

It was also a good day for ‘emb3zzle‘ who secured gold and bronze medals in the Blades. A third-place finish in the $10k for $36,014, was followed by victory in the $5k Sunday Blade for $59,789, after a heads-up win over ‘SasukeUchiha‘, who banked $36,746.
