“hutzlerCrew” Rides To Victory At PokerStars Sunday MillionMonday, February 2nd, 2009 by t2admin
Another Sunday, another $1.5 million guaranteed at the world’s largest online poker room, PokerStars. But it wasn’t just another day for “hutzlerCrew”, an online poker player who displayed incredible skill and perseverance as he routed the field to pocket $184k.
Once again, PokerStars did not see an overlay, but the possibility was closer than it has ever been in recent months. A field of 7,513 boosted the $1.5 million guarantee ever so slightly, increasing to $1,502,600, leveling the bubble at 1,080.
The grueling tournament went on for several hours as “hutzlerCrew” maintained a steadily growing chip stack throughout most of the competition. His talents became more and more obvious as the final table drew near.
The 3rd place elimination of “BodogAri” brought about heads-up play between “hutzlerCrew” and “MCLegend”, a seasoned American poker player who’s cashed in countless online poker tournaments, earning 5- and 6-digit figures on numerous occasions.
Both online poker players displayed incredible skills at the final table, but when it came down to the wire, “MCLegend” was simply no match for “hutzlerCrew”. The runner up finish awarded “MCLegend” another 6-digit cash of $125,167, while “hutzlerCrew” walked away with $184,820 and the esteemed honor of winning the PokerStars Sunday Million.
