  • PokerStars Sunday July 10th 2011 Tournament Report

    Monday, July 11th, 2011 by t2admin

With the 2011 WSOP Main Event getting underway this past weekend I expected the numbers in the PokerStars major events to drop slightly off of the previous week’s numbers. The PokerStars Sunday Million ended up having about 100 more players join than last week, which was a bit surprising, but also meant that the prize pool was huge for the top players. There was only one deal in the three major events at PokerStars this past Sunday, but the deal was between four players, which is fairly rare.

PokerStars Sunday Million

• Entrants – 5796 / Prize Pool – $1,259,200

Nearly 5800 poker players competed in the Sunday Million this past Sunday, which brought the prize pool to over $1.25M. There was no deal made in the tournament, which was fairly rare for the Sunday Million when there is this much money in the prize pool. On The Mac took down 1st place in the Sunday Million and ended up winning $179K, which was one of the biggest paydays on PokerStars in a little while. Rizih won 2nd place this past Sunday and earned $133K while Bokinha won $93K for finishing in 3rd place in the Sunday Million.

PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up

• Entrants – 2920 / Prize Pool – $584,000

The PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up nearly broke the 3000 players mark this weekend, but fell just short. The final four players in the tournament decided to cut a deal with each other and they all ended up winning roughly $50K apiece except for the winner of the event. PKR_B777 won the tournament after the deal and won $85K, which was quite a bit more than the other 3 players that were apart of the deal. KUDUZ finished the Sunday Warm-Up in 2nd place ($52K), Breckster79 won $46K for finishing in 3rd place and MVDC111 earned $57K for 4th place.

PokerStars Sunday 500

• Entrants – 527 / Prize Pool – $263,500

This past weekend the Sunday 500 at PokerStars barely went over the guaranteed amount. Toby Lewis ended up winning the event and adding roughly $50K to his online tournament winnings. eShaMeister finished in 2nd place and secured a huge payday of $36K for his efforts. Donkno2 won $26K for finishing the PokerStars Sunday 500 in 3rd place, which is a really good payday considering the number of players that participated in the event this weekend.

With the 2011 WSOP Main Event winding down and many players heading back home I’m sure the PokerStars tournaments will have slightly bigger playing fields next week. Make sure you try qualifying for one of the major events through satellites if you don’t have enough to buy-in to the tournaments directly.
