SUNDAY MAJORS: Thomas ‘tomnelz1’ Nelz Wins Sunday Million

0
Thomas Nelz became the latest Brazilian to take home the PokerStars Sunday Million title.

Brazil’s Thomas ‘tomnelz1’ Nelz secured his biggest online cash to date after victory in the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million for $110,747. After last week’s edition saw the lowest number of entrants take part since the revamped $109 buy-in was set, the numbers picked up this Sunday as 11,480 entrants created a $1,148,000 prize pool. When the field was reduced to the final three after more than 13 hours of play, ‘Berthelcult‘ was the next player to hit the rail and banked $61,488 for their efforts. The final two then agreed to a money-deal before Ireland’s ‘TheVirus217‘ ultimately lost heads-up and claimed $90,747 as the runner-up.

China’s #1 ranked player ‘zzwwzzwwzz‘ came through a 133 player-field in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller to add $55,834 to their bankroll. Current world #1 ‘Lena900‘ just missed out on a podium position after the Swede fell in fourth place for $25,849. World #2 Andras ‘probirs’ Nemeth then secured the bronze medal alongside $33,414, before world #21 Jonathan ‘proudflop’ Proudfoot hit the rail in second place for $43,193.

This week’s PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller glory went to Norway’s ‘Tinas21‘ after coming through a 1,170 player-field. ‘BUYNI‘ walked away with $24,760 + $8,054 in bounties for third place, which set up the heads-up battle. ‘ultraviol3nt‘ then saw their bounty head in the direction of former TCOOP winner ‘Tinas21’ and departed with $33,780 + $1,468, with the Norweigan victor banking a massive $46,085 + $46,827 in bounties as the winner.

dujo123‘ turned $215 into $31,469, after they battled through a 960 player-field to win the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up. World ranked #48 and ‘BITB‘ part-owner Samuel ‘€urop€an’ Vousden narrowly missed on a top three medal position after the Finn hit the rail in fourth place for $12,026. The final player to miss out on a place in the heads-up battle was ‘fellatiado‘ who banked $16,572 in third, and when the action came to its climax, ‘dujo123’ was declared as the winner, after defeating Brazil’s former WCOOP winner ‘hellzito‘ who took away $22,836 and the silver medal.

The partypoker $5,200 The Big Game returned and with it came the $1m guaranteed prize pool. Despite satellites running over the past few weeks, the total entrants were set at 194, meaning the overall prize pool just fell short of the guarantee. When the action got underway, regular high-stakes player ‘Chelsea72‘ appeared in the fourth-place spot for $78,000 and left the final three to battle it out for the $203,900 top prize. Poland’s #1 ‘GreenNaugahyde‘ fell in third place for a six-figure $105,500 score, before Ireland’s ‘SlowDoke‘ saw their deep run come to an end in second place for $148,000, which left ‘ucantrybut‘ to claim the glory alongside $203,900.

Over on GGPoker, it was a very good day for ‘vamossuerte‘ who secured both a gold and bronze medal in the high-roller ‘Blade‘ events.

The $10K Blade saw 22 entrants battle for a massive $111,501 top-prize, and it was ‘vamossuerte’ who secured the first money spot after they took third place for $34,449 before ‘ImLividBuddy‘ lost out to ‘PokerOKbro‘ heads-up.

‘vamossuerte’ then went the distance in the $5K Blade and banked the biggest share of the $247,000 prize pool. World ranked #5 Roman ‘SanityWaterline’ Romanovsky continued his great form to cash in third place for $38,983, before ‘vamossuerte’ got the better of ‘ravenoustrashdog‘ heads-up to seal the $94,390 first-place prize.
