Biggest Prize Pool Ever

A bit of history took place last Sunday when the weekly Sunday Million tournament was set with a guaranteed prize pool of $10,000,000 to celebrate 10 years of Pokerstars.

A prize of $2m was also guaranteed for first place.

I snap entered this with hopes of making the final table. An amazing 62,116 entrants made the cut off to register the largest pool in online tournament history of $12,423,200.

I managed to beat 94% of the field and score my largest MTT win of $729.63 finishing in 3,718th place.

A deal was done at the final table and the event ended as follows:

1. First-Eagle (Canada) $1,146,574.65*
2. Unstoffable (Spain) $580,724.34*
3. BLAABAR (Sweden) $709,896.78*
4. tunafish919 (Australia) $627,317.26*
5. Dimedroll (Russia) $995,996.85*
6. SkunkDen (Australia) $758,986.42*
7. fireballdia (Portugal) $182,406.00
8. kaalen (Sweden) $119,866.80
9. yokouno1980 (Israel) $86,512.56

*= reflects a six-way deal that left an additional $200,000 for the winner


A huge day for these guys

Congrats to BLAABAR who posts in my forum and finished 3rd.
