Three members make Sunday Million 8th Anniversary final table

In our new round-up of the Sunday Majors we celebrate one of our biggest community scores yet from 'Pleno1', 'suppenkasper' and 'fabinho12'.


Three PokerStrategists make Sunday Million final table

// week in our weekly meeting we decided it would be fun to have a regular round-up of all the big Sunday Major tournaments on PokerStars PokerStars. We never dreamed we would hit the ground running with such a great story for members. 

Our very own Patrick Pleno1 Leonard had the best Sunday of his career last week, chopping the Sunday Warm-Up for $94k.

He only went and did one better yesterday, coming 9th in the largest ever Sunday Million for $110,874.68. 

But he wasn't the only one of our members in the winner's circle. 

46,586 players turned out for the $8 million guaranteed 8th Anniversary Event, and heads-up for the title we had two members of our German community. 

suppenkasper eventually did a deal where he took $1,038,540 and fabinho12 took $877,090. 

Congrats to everyone who made the money in this event, but in particular our three final table heroes.

'valkyri3' wins Sunday Warm Up

Normally the $215 Sunday Warm Up and the Sunday Million are very similar in size and stature, but considering this was the $8 million guaranteed Sunday Million, the Warm Up seemed small this week.

But it still boasted 4183 players and a six-figure first prize. 'valkyri3' of Singapore managing to do what Pleno1 did last week by taking the lion's share of the prize pool for $117,654.34. 


'patrisha77' wins $40,423.43 in Sunday Storm

If you think that all the money and glamour in the Sunday Majors is limited to the high rollers, think again. Every week PokerStars PokerStars hosts the Sunday Storm, which has an $11 buy-in and a huge guarantee. 

Last night it boasted a $300k guarantee and 50,557 players were in attendance. This created a first prize of $40,423 and a minimum cash of $2,098.11 for anyone making the final. The lucky winner who got 3,674 times their investment was 'patrisha77' of Hungary. 


Also for a lower buy-in, The Bigger $11 attracted 24,457 players and 'OBIBOK117' of Poland took down a first prize of $24,475.20 while The Bigger $22 got 10,914 players with Jack Ellwood winning $30,565.87.

Sunday Major Signoff

Is it skill that gets you back-to-back Sunday Major results? Maybe it's luck? Or a pact with the Devil?

In the case of Pleno1 it appears to be this:
