PokerStars Sunday tournament results (11-15-09)
PokerStars likes to break records. It's just one of those things that makes the people behind the scenes happy. Sometimes it happens when no one is really expecting it.
This weekend, PokerStars added a million bucks to the regular $1.5 million guarantee and, oh boy, did people show up.
As our late night reporter Jen Newell discovered as the Sunday Million went deep into the night, the big money drew out the records.
Largest ever $215 Sunday Million prize pool: $3,656,600
Largest ever $215 Sunday Million field: 18,283 players
Here's what the final table looked like at the players vied for the $365,670 first prize.
When it was all said and done, a six-way deal handed the winner, Zadman5311, more than $300,000. Check out Newell's report: Zadman5311 Wins $282,662.86 in Record-Breaking 11/15 Sunday Million.
A bit earlier in the night, Egor2077 went after the big money Sunday Warm-Up and beat out more than 4,600 people for the win. John Hartness has the full story in: Egor2077 gets hot at the right time to claim Sunday Warm-Up Win.
