As we are writing this, Christmas is on the verge of taking place, with Santa literally getting stuck up and down chimneys the country over, yet we have still found it within ourselves to report on just what poker action is currently going on.
Those of us that are poker addicts literally cannot wait until the New Year and all of the poker tournaments that it I bringing with it. The Super Sunday this weekend represented the last chance for many of the world’s biggest pros to take down a last big score before the festivities began.
For the first time in a very long time, the PokerStars Sunday Million actually dragged itself past the $1 million prize pool guarantee to eventually end up with a total of $1.5 million.
Notables In The Mix!
Just because it is the end of the year didn’t mean there wasn’t any notable players in the mix either, with names such as Liv Boeree, Johnny Lodden, Jonathan Duhamel, Nacho Barbero and Martin Hruby. That field in anyone’s perspective is a tough one, yet the eventual winner “arnon shraga” managed to shrug that field to one side to take down the winner’s prize of $216,863.63..
The Final Table!
When the action finally got to the final table, there was one player in control, “yadio” who had amassed a massive 16,012,596 in chips. He held a good advantage over most players but was only a couple of million ahead of “bullstopper” in second place.
“bullstopper” didn’t have the fortune he was hoping for though with the Brit dropping out in 7th place, we doubt he will complain with a decent score of $30k to go home with. The eventual winner though $216, 863,63.
By the time it got down to heads up, it was down to either “arnon shraga” and “Krafty_Lt” to battle it out for the title, with the former proving too strong for his opponent.
The heads up session actually only tok two hands before it was settled with them both agreesing a deal and deciding to play for the remaining $20k. As it turned out, “shraga” had too much for his opponent and that was that.
