0
A former #1-ranked PocketFiver took down the PokerStars Sunday Million for a six-figure score.

It was just over four years ago that Christian ‘eisenhower1’ Jeppsson relinquished his grasp on the #1 ranking on PocketFives, but on Sunday the Swede put himself back into the spotlight by winning the PokerStars Sunday Million.

Jeppsson beat out the 10,890-player field in the Sunday Million to win $111,769.63. Brazilain ‘EricBolis‘ finished one place behind Jeppsson for an $81,103.38 score while ‘seegul65‘ rounded out the podium finishers, coming in third for $58,856.74.

For the second time in just over three months, partypoker server issues lead to the cancellation of their recently re-launched flagship tournament, the partypoker MILLION as well as the rest of the Sunday slate.

Dusk Till Dawn owner and partypoker partner Rob Yong took to Twitter to offer an explanation of sorts for the crash that left many players unable to register for any tournament or, in some cases, unable to see any tournament lobbies.

The Bounty Builder Series continued on PokerStars with Francisco ‘Tomatee’ Benitez beating current #1-ranked ‘Lena900’ to take down Event #89 ($5,200 NLHE High Roller) for $65,634.72 plus an amazing $101,972.65 in bounties. ‘Lena900‘, who wrestled the #1 ranking back from fellow Swede Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar on December 28, picked up $65,634.58 and another $5,937.50 in bounties. Tomi ‘elmerixx’ Brouk earned $44,341.43 from the prize pool and secured $23,066.41 in bounties before being eliminated in third place.

For the first time in the short history of the GGPoker GG Masters, the field broke through the 2,000-player barrier. There was still an overlay, but the 2,064 players meant that the $15,168 out of pocket expense was the smallest ever. once 2,062 players were eliminated, the final two players came to an agreement on a deal. Croatia’s ‘G0spRaf0‘ took home $39,962 as the champion while ‘Bullet-proof’ earned $36,809 in the runner-up position. Third place finisher ‘LUCKYFISH567‘ won $22,775. GGPoker ambassador Felipe Ramos made a final table appearance, busting in sixth place for an $8,249 cash.
