Yesterday it was once again time for the most popular online tournament, Sunday Million at PokerStars. 8342 players signed up for the tournament and created a prize pool of $1,67 million dollars. 1260 players would get a share of the $1,67 million prize pool and the winner would get $245,421. However, it came to be 2 Swedish poker players that ended up playing heads-up against each other.

The Sunday Million tournament at PokerStars keeps the title as the world's most popular weekly tournament. Week after week it keeps bringing thousands of players that win their seat via satellites or buy-in directly. This Sunday not less than 8342 players took part and created a prize pool of $1,67 million dollars. After 10 hours of intensive poker, there were only 2 players left. "Danneville" and "Skämmes came to be the 2 last men standing in the Sunday Million Tournament. It must have felt extra good for these 2 players as both of them were from Stockholm, Sweden. The 2 Swedes decided that they would make a deal according to how much chips they had left. "Danneville" received $222 503 in first place and "Skämmes" $202,271 for his second place.

Final table results:
1 Danneville $222 503
2 Skämmes $202 271
3 domino16 $125 130
4 ThePokerbody $83 420
5 KingGorn $66 736
7 asbo22 $33 368

8000+ players, 10 hours of play. Those sunday major tourneys are really huge. And 200k payout is nice for 10 hours of work. Smile

Swedish are hanging out just fine on online poker. But in an 8.500 players tournament, lots of unpredictable things happen: the 4.000 chipleader can be short stacked when only 2.000 left, happened to me once in a touney like this. Congratulations to Danneville, he sure did a great work to end up winning!

with so many players you can get busted anytime but if you win u will win big.
I won't play this tourney unless i win a satellite for this and 10 hrs poker continuously is too much for me, by that time i'll be banging my head against my monitor

mcsnakey...that wasn't the point of the article lol. He never said the Swedes were taking over. The point was that the last two players just happened to be Swedes. It's likely that the reason they split the pot was because they were both Swedish and knew each other in real life. Otherwise, I'm sure they would have played it out Big Smile
