  • PokerStars Sunday January 9th 2011 Tournament Report

    Monday, January 10th, 2011 by t2admin

With a lot of players at PokerStars playing in the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure right now the major Sunday tournaments were smaller then usual this past weekend. If you managed to play in the events you definitely had a great shot at winning since a lot of the best players on PokerStars were busy with the PCA. The PokerStars Sunday 500 even had an overlay $52K this week and I can’t remember the last time there was an overlay in any of the PokerStars Sunday Majors.

PokerStars Sunday 500

• Entrants – 896 / Prize Pool – $500,000

The PokerStars Sunday 500 was easily the best event to play in this week. The $500K Guarantee wasn’t surpassed this week, which is a very rare occurrence. With only 900 people in the event everyone has a great chance at walking away with the top prize. Shawn Luman won the 1st place prize and $90K for his efforts while Halloa won 2nd place, which was worth $64K. FrankThomas8 ended up taking third place down in the Sunday 500 this Sunday and won $48K.

PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up

• Entrants – 4657 / Prize Pool – $931,400

There was no overlay in the Sunday Warm-Up, but the top three players did strike a deal. In even bigger news, Lars Bonding finished in 1st place again, which he did two weeks ago as well. He won $127K this week and has been having a great past few weeks playing online poker. Unta won 2nd place after the deal was made and won $108K. The 1st player to be knocked out after the deal was made was Elduderino67 who won $95K. It’s hard to believe the same person winning this event two times in three weeks, but that’s exactly what Lars was able to do.

Poker Star Sunday Million

• Entrants – 8427 / Prize Pool – $1,685,400

The top four players in the Poker Star Sunday Million made a deal with each other this weekend, which meant they’d all share a big chunk of the $1.6M+ prize pool. All four players won over six figures in the event so I’m sure they’re all extremely happy. Here is a quick breakdown of how each of the top four players finished along with how much each of them made in the tournament.

• 1st Place – Roydon Rock $158K
• 2nd Place – Kubik-Rubik7 $194K
• 3rd Place – Doeks $182K
• 4th Place – Tankitan $104K
