SUNDAY MAJORS: Problems Plague partypoker MILLION, Event Cancelled

0
The partypoker MILLION didn't quite go as planned on Sunday.

Sunday was supposed to be a big day for partypoker with the conclusion of their recently relaunched partypoker MILLION. The $215 buy-in tournament had multiple Day 1 flights throughout the week, a structure designed to give recreational players an opportunity to play without committing an entire Sunday.

Problems arose early on Day 2 of the tournament when players who qualified earlier in the day, on Day 1D, were left out of the field. The event ran for just over an hour with players building stacks and busting in the money while Day 1D players were on the outside looking in. Once the tournament was finally paused, the company tweeted its resolution to the situation which saw the company pay out close to $600,000 from their own coffers.

While that was going on, other events on partypoker, PokerStars and 888 poker went off seemingly without a hitch.

The PokerStars Sunday Million drew 11,878 players with ‘Ben_Apart’ beating them all to win $119,637.71. Runner-up ‘yodashutka’ wound up with $89,812.73 and ‘JulianPasare’ took home $63,000.08 for a bronze medal performance.

The partypoker $5,200 Sunday Big Game got one more player this week than last with 101 entrants. ‘Patrick’ topped the field to win $123,725 outright. ‘Forrest_guuump’ wound up second and banked $88,375 while ‘Player123560423’ came third for $63,125.

888poker also debuted their brand new $1,050 buy-in $200,000 guaranteed event, dubbed ‘The Dragon’. Mike ‘WalmartCNXN’ Farrow beat out the 206-player field to take home $44,290.00. ‘ShipGold’ finished second for $31,930 and ‘RakDoll’ earned $24,205 for finishing third.
