Watch great performances all round from last weekend's Sunday Million
Somehow you can cram 7,193 players, a prize pool of more than $1.4 million, hours and hours of play, not to mention some fantastic performances, into a little more than half an hour of compelling viewing. So say the people behind PokerStars.tv, who have produced another half hour show packed full of all of the above.
In it you'll witness a nixed deal, some veritable all-stars of the games, and some top draw laydowns that will have you scratching your head wondering how he (or she) didn't think to themselves "What the hell, I'll call and see if he's bluffing" like you always do.
But then this is the Sunday Million, where the business end tends to feature players of a different calibre. This week was no exception.
As commentator Nick Wealthall mentioned, it also serves as a prelude to events planned this weekend when the Sunday Million celebrates its ninth anniversary. A special edition of the big one will feature a $9 million guarantee, with $1 of that set for the winner. There are already 5,000 players registered for the event. You can secure your seat either by buying in directly, or playing one of the mnay satellites running around the clock. Check out the PokerStars Lobby for details.
In the meantime sit back and watch a terrific final table. I mean, how did he not call?
