A PokerStars player for 13 years, Xavi666 said, "I still don't believe it. Finally everything came together."
Xavi666 told himself from the very beginning he wasn't going to make any deals. He had a goal. "When there were four of us left, it seemed that taking the deal was the smart thing to do, but I declined. I wanted one million!"

| Many congratulations to Xavi666 on winning this event and $1,093,204.63 first prize. This massive tournament lasted a mammoth 16 hours and the level of concentration needed to win must have been huge|

| Amazing this field of more than 44.000 players in the Anniversary Sunday Million last Sunday. And the winner from Panama got 1 million $- unbelievable! I´ve tried to qualify via sat, but i have won no ticket for this great event. But perhaps next time, or for the 20th Sunday Million |

| This is certainly an amazing story ... 9 and 7 against the two kings and in the end a million dollars ... this is some kind of incredible story ..... I imagine the reaction of his poor rival ... the two kings are winning alongside and suddenly disappointment|

| A big amount of players and an awesome prize for the first place.|
The article is saying that he is a poker player in stars for thirteen years,
but no mention about the limit he plays. If he is a low level one, the win will be even more good
Plus would have been better the money to go to a micro limits player

| Wow probably so nice to get a reward for a night work of one million dollars, he will surely sleep smiling not a lot of times i seen players from panam playing on pokerstars, so he must be one of very few players from there, kow he ks famous in his country|

| so impressed with Xavi, he was a professional football player at barcelona legend and now he seamlessly transferred his amazing skills to poker world, sure moving to panama and acclimating to the ins and outs of gambling took some time, but the rewards were worth it, with a cool million now in his pocket.|

| didnt know it lasted 16hrs,i watched the final table and thought this guy cant lose with the cards he was hitting,but after playing that long i reckon when i was looking at my hole cards id be thinking, a pair of unicorns,might be worth a push |

| Yea sixteen hours is admirable for me playing poker.|
I couldnt have lasted the half of it playing as good as i can.
Usually after a couple of hours i give up, starting all sorts of mistakes

| Big congratulations to Xavi666 from Panama on being crowed the 11th Anniversary Sunday Million champion. I just watched a full replay (hole cards visible) on PokerStars software. And I think Xavi666 played relatively well throughout the final table. |

| Big congratulations to Xavi666 for and incredible $1,093,204.63 for 1st place in 11th anniversary Sunday Million.To beat a field off almost 56000 players in a 215$ tournament is a realy hard thing to do ...Now he can retire from poker if he want or he can play 0.01/0.02 limit table if he wants |
