A New "Moneymaker" was Born in the latest Sunday Million
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.
PokerStars Sunday Million 14th Anniversary
A total of 60,898 unique entries and 32,118 re-entries was the final result of the 14th Anniversary Edition of PokerStars most famous tournament, the Sunday Million. 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.
After three days of action, the final table was set with nine players:
|Alex "AAAArthur" Brito||333.031.132||Brazil|
|Stefan "CrAzY_sTeFaN" Piele Dragos||127.327.738||Romania|
|Marios "Jully-19" Mansour||122.054.176||Cyprus|
|Paulius "D3cor" Vaitiekunas||96.760.235||Lithuania|
The chip leader was "salonteskis" from Lithuania. The only unknown players at the final table were "pokerfrance" and "AAAArthur." All the other players are recognized regs with hundreds of thousands of dollars in profits.
In the end, four players made an ICM deal; AAAArthur won the event and was the only one who received more than 1 million dollars.
Alex "AAAArthur" Brito turned $11 into $1,192,802, a life-changing prize.
|Alex "AAAArthur" Brito||$1.192.802,46*|
|Stefan "CrAzY_sTeFaN" Piele Dragos||$921.328,12*|
|Marios "Jully-19" Mansour||$225.108,02|
|Paulius "D3cor" Vaitiekunas||$71.869,74|
*ICM Chop Deal
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".
