SUNDAY MAJORS: Former #1 ‘veeea’ Wins Sunday Million for Third Time

0
Russian online poker superstars 'veeea' has now won the PokerStars Sunday Million three times.

There was another Sunday of big money wins across online poker’s top tournaments with the crowning of a three-time PokerStars Sunday Million champion.

Russia’s ‘veeea‘ took down the PokerStars Sunday Million for an outstanding third time in their career after they came through the 5,236 player-field to win $141,494. ‘veeea’ who previously won the event back in 2015 and 2017 is also a three-time Super Tuesday champion and a former PocketFives.com world number #1.

The win for ‘veeea’ comes less than eight weeks after a near miss in the Sunday Million chasing a third title when they ended up with the bronze medal for $71,823, but this time around they achieved it. ‘LEHMATLENTAA‘ departed in third place for $69,680 before ‘WhatA298‘ fell at the final hurdle during heads-up and banked an impressive $99,292.

Nick “fu_15” Maimone defeated Viktor ‘Isildur1’ Blom heads-up in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller after the pair had agreed to a money deal. Blom was awarded the slightly bigger share after negotiations had taken place after ‘Roma_Tilt‘ had departed in third place for $19,787 + $5,885 in bounties. However, Maimone was able to turn it around and sent Blom to the rail as runner-up for $32,331 + $9,368 in bounties, with Maimome picking up $31,491 + $23,542 in bounties for the win.

The PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up saw a 919 entrants field create a $183,800 prize pool with Malta’s ‘wisopekeño!‘ banking the largest share. ‘KayCrusher‘ exited in third place for $15,867.25, which left ‘wisopekeño!’ in a battle against the Czech Republic’s ‘Vocaaas.’ ‘wisopekeño!’ was able to come out on top to win the $30,693 top-prize and continued a great year having picked up a SCOOP title in May. ‘Vocaaas’ added another $22,068 to their already impressive $1.1m in online earnings as runner-up.

M.nosbocaJ‘ topped an 82 player-field in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller to win $39,838. ‘Pimmss‘ claimed the bronze medal for $24,511, before ‘M.nosbocaJ’ faced off with ‘topdoll827‘ for the title, with the latter falling in second place for $31,248.

SandwichBacon‘ banked over $41,000 for victory in the partypoker $1,050 Sunday HR Bounty Hunter after they defeated ‘Skipper22‘ heads-up. One hundred and fifty entrants created a prize pool worth $153,000 and when Sweden’s ‘Algorhytm‘ hit the rail in third for $9,000 + $3,607 in bounties, ‘Skipper22’ was unable to get the better of ‘SandwichBacon’ and settled for $12,375 + $7,036 in bounties as the runner-up.

Samuel ‘JHelppi’ Vousden went the distance in the partypoker $2,600 Super Sunday High Roller and added another impressive result to his poker c.v. The Finn won his 84th PocketFives.com gold medal after a heads-up victory over ‘j2805667‘ who exited in second for $31,900. ‘addhuSK‘ banked $21,025 in third place, with Vousden taking away $47,125 for the win.

Bulgaria’s #1 ranked player ‘SUPERSCOUSER‘ was the last player standing in the partypoker $1,050 Deepstack after they held off the challenge of 97 other players to win $24,500. Sweden’s former world ranked #1 ‘Doyle_B‘ came third for $12,500, with ‘Gl4adiat0r‘ the final player to depart, and banked $17,500 as runner-up.

Yattag0‘ turned $215 into $16,380 after they came through a 420 player-field in the 888poker $80,000 Sunday Mega Deep. On a final table of eight, ‘ShipGold‘ had to settle for bronze in third place for $9,240, before ‘DuckFace01‘ banked $12,180 in second, which meant ‘Yattag0’ was this week’s hero.
