PokerStars held its biggest online tournament in history last weekend: Sunday Million 14th Anniversary Edition. The event drew a massive field of almost 61k players that created a prize pool of 18 million dollars. The tournament champion was a Brazilian player that joined the event, firing a single bullet from an $11 satellite.

With a buy-in of $200 + $15, the event had a final prize pool of $18,602,300. The poker room kept $1,395,240 to host the event, which had a controversial 24-hour late registration period.

This is not the first time that a Brazilian player takes down massive poker tournaments. The first two editions of The Venom were also won by Brazilian grinders, proving that the Latin American country is turning into a poker superpower. In the case of "AAAArthur", his stats prove that he only plays micro-stakes tournaments and outlasting over 60k players was a "Black Swan".
