Not less than 9031 players paid the buy-in of $200+$15 and took part in the world’s most popular online tournament yesterday, PokerStars Sunday Million. Thanks to the big starting field, not less than $1,806,200 was up for grabs.

The final table was very interesting and thrilling this time. When there were 6 players left, they all had about the same amount of chips left. This is quite unusual thing to see on a final table. Anyhow, it came to be the player "palurdo" who took home the tournament at the end. For the win he received $257,930.

Sunday Million fact:

* The first ever Sunday Million was held on March 5, 2006, and was won by ‘aaaaaaaa’ from Massachusetts, USA. A total of 5,893 runners played for a prize pool of $1,178,600.

* The average field size is 7,070 players.

* The biggest Sunday Million field so far was 16,260 players, on December 28, 2008 generating a total prize pool of $3,252,000 in prize money.

Problem with these tourneys is that it takes a lot of mental concentration since it lasts well over 10 hours for such a huge prizepool o.O. All one needs is to run good and win one time~

Why is that news? Tongue Is that guy someone from bankrollmob or something?
Because if would be weird if every Sunday Milion winner will be annouced in news Tongue.
Last time it was special Sunday Milion and pot was much higher.

like ZmxPowah who is he when you open thread about him?someone from BMR?and this factsa are not correct,beacuse week before this tournament prize pool was almost 4 m(I think) and first prize over 500 000,so its not biggest on 28.dec 2008.
 MANUEDO08/02/2010 21:55:36 GMT
Nice one, compliments. How many hours did he play to win tournament ? Any pause, also just for pissing ..... ahahah

16,260 players thats crazy.
Only $200 + 15 thats great value.
I dont play at PS but I might check it out later this year... I've got a few bonuses I need to clear before I go depositing there.
 DaMessiah66609/02/2010 15:19:03 GMT
