  • PokerStars Sunday November 28th Tournament Report

    Monday, November 29th, 2010 by t2admin

We seen regular traffic levels in both the PokerStars Sunday 500 and PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up, but there were lots of new players competing in the PokerStars Sunday Million. I expected the traffic in the major tournaments to be slightly down this week due to the Grey Cup in Canada, but it didn’t seem to have any effect on the events. There were a couple familiar names in the top 3 places of the major tournaments this weekend including a PokerStars Pro.

PokerStars Sunday 500

• Entrants – 1081 / Prize Pool – $540,500

The PokerStars Sunday 500 went slightly above the $500K Guarantee this weekend just like it does most weekends. New players tend to join the PokerStars Sunday Million rather then the other major tournaments because of the prize pool. The competition is always tough in the Sunday 500 because a lot of the players are regulars that play in this event every single weekend. There was no deal made this week in the Sunday 500, which meant OLD TIME GIN would keep the entire 1st place prize of $91K. Second place went to ryry-gonemad ($67K) this weekend with third place going to jdtjpoker ($51K).

PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up

• Entrants – 4651 / Prize Pool – $930,200

There was a deal made by the top 3 players in the Sunday Warm-Up this weekend, which ensured each player would walk away with over $100K. INormaJean ended up winning 1st place after the deal was made and won $113K. Gizzimow won 2nd place after having a chip lead when the deal was made and won $114K while 3rd place went to PrinceAndrew for $103K. It was an awesome tournament and I’m sure the top 3 players are happy with the deal they made. Each player won over six figures and it was perfect timing considering the fact that Christmas is around the corner.

PokerStars Sunday Million

• Entrants – 8653 / Prize Pool – $1,730,600

The PokerStars Sunday Million was huge this weekend and features over 8500 players in the event. The prize pool was massive and the top 3 players decided that they wanted to split the pot and make a deal. Once the deal was made there was still money left in the prize pool for the eventual winner. Wasaberga ended up taking down the tournament after the deal was made and took home a prize of $211K. Eman1126 won 2nd place and took home $164K, but that’s because he didn’t have as many chips as everyone else when the deal was made. Jude Ainsworth, who is a PokerStars Pro, finished the tournament in 3rd place this week and won $194K, which was mainly because he had a chip lead when the deal was made.
