PokerStars Sunday tournament results (8-23-09)
When can you win but still not quite win? When can you lose but still claim victory? There's probably some deep theological discussion we could have on those questions, but the easiest answer comes from yesterday's Sunday Million.
Deals are pretty common in the big tournaments, but it's rare for a deal in the Sunday Million to go six-deep. It's happened before, but more often than no it's a two or three people chopping up the remaining cash. This week, six people did it, and the eventual winner, tysonduke23 cleared a cool $117,000. As the deal worked out, though, the biggest winner in this week's Million actually placed third. Shawry5 dealt well and ended up with more than $146,000. Jen Newell has the whole story in the 8-23-09 Sunday Million Wrap-Up.
Elsewhere in the ether, calvo1989 wrote the comeback story of the week when he ran over the Sunday Warm-Up. Actuallly, the PokerStars Blog's John Hartness wrote the story, but calvo1989 inspired it and won all the money. You can see the report on the 8-23-09 Sunday Warm-Up wrap-up.
