PokerStars Sunday tournament results (12-27-09)

ps_news_thn.jpgIf you play at PokerStars, you knew the last Sunday of the year was going to be a big one. With that understood, no one knew exactly how big it was going to be.

Enter, the new Guinness World Record for the biggest ever poker tournament ever held. For the affordable price of one dollar, 149,196 people signed up for the record-breaking tournament on Sunday. PokerStars added more than $150,000 in prize money. In the end, oskar69 beat out the biggest field in poker history for a $50,000 payday.


Of course, it was still a big weekend in all the other big tournaments that happen on the last Sunday of a month.

The Turbo Takedown was back for its last event of the year, and it came down to the wire in the fight for the lion's share of the $1 million prize pool and the brand new car. You can read all about it in our report about ImDaNuts Turbo Takedown win.

Elsewhere, the Battle of the Planets crowned Godfatti as its new champion, NinjasTyle87 walked away with the 12-28-09 Sunday Warm-Up win, and the world's biggest weekly poker tournament gave the final 2009 Sunday Million title to coach6999 after a five-way deal.
