SUNDAY MAJORS: ‘pimenta7’ Takes Advantage of Sunday Million Overlay

0
For the first time since reducing it's buy-in to $109, the PokerStars Sunday Million had an overlay.

With the World Series of Poker kicking off in Las Vegas just a few days ago, players from all over the world made their way from the virtual tables to the live felt, but despite this, there was still plenty of action on a busy Sunday for online poker.

For the first time since its reduced $109 buy-in began, the PokerStars Sunday Million fell short of its $1,000,000 guarantee. The 8,984 entries were the lowest the revamped tournament has achieved, but the event still came with a $108,784 top prize. The final table was dominated by a Brazilian presence with five of the last nine hailing from the South American nation, including ‘KKing James‘, who hit the rail in fourth place for $41,575, and ‘igoretH10‘ who collected the bronze medal for $57,290. When all was said and done, Brazil was rewarded with a champion after ‘pimenta7‘ defeated Russia’s ‘evgeny0777‘ heads-up to net the top six-figure prize.

WATnlos‘ topped a PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller final table full of online regulars to bank $47,008. The former Sunday Million winner saw world ranked #1 ‘Lena900‘ hit the rail in fourth place for $21,296, before Finland’s Tomi ‘elmerixx’ Brouk exited in third for $27,728. Malta’s ‘MoTTaGeNiaL‘ was then the unfortunate player to be denied at the last and exited as runner-up for $36,103, which left ‘WATnlos’ as the victor.

serggorelyi7‘ won the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for the second time and banked a cool $73,708. Sweden’s ‘eijseijs‘ was eliminated in third place for $19,933 + $1,953 in bounties before Argentina’s ‘rojorulez‘ saw their bounty lost at the last for a prize worth $27,194 + $5,359, and the victorious ‘serggorelyi7’ picked up their second title in this event just seven months after their first.

deivid29‘ came through a 786 player-field to win the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up for $26,708. The tournament crept over the $150,000 guaranteed prize pool and when just three remained, ‘dadowiec‘ saw their chances ended for $14,065. The final battle ultimately saw Brazil’s former Sunday Million final tablist ‘chicalltreta‘ miss out and collected $19,382 as runner-up.

SpiritDNA‘ won the partypoker $2,100 Sunday High Roller Gladiator for over $46,000. partypoker Team Online pro Jeff Gross made a final table appearance but was first to go in ninth place when the action resumed, and the American was quickly followed to the virtual rail by world #1 ‘Drulitoo‘ in eighth. When the field had been cut from 90 players to the final three, ‘ojanOmaha‘ collected the bronze medal for $12,717 + $2,362 in bounties, before ‘x_zola25‘ was the last to lose their bounty and exited with the silver medal alongside $18,088 + $7,612.

But ‘ojanOmaha’ and ‘x_zola25′ were not done for the day and soon after found themselves in another three-way title battle in the partypoker $1,050 Sunday High Roller Terminator, with the outcome also not so different. This time it was ‘x_zola25’ who exited with the bronze medal and added another $8,534 + $4,030 in bounties to their bankroll, before ‘ojanOmaha’ tasted defeat at the last for $11,942 + $10,855, as ‘megustaestrecha‘ claimed their scalp and the gold medal for $11,955 + $19,656.

There was also a Sunday to remember for ‘chan593‘ after they turned $10,000 worth of GGPoker Sunday Blade buy-ins into over $82,000. ‘chan593’ claimed fourth place in the $100,000 guaranteed event which saw ‘Joeri_van_heetan‘ awarded the $64,059 top-prize, but soon after it was ‘chan593’ celebrating victory after they navigated through a 34 player-field in the $50k guaranteed event. The tournament ultimately collected a $161,500 prize pool, and ‘chan593’ took the win for a $68,893 payday, after a heads-up battle against ‘PyramidOfSkulls.’
