UK’S ‘BEN_APART’ WINS SUNDAY MILLION FOR $119K
The $109 Sunday Million drew a larger-than-usual field yesterday, attracting 11,878 total entries to create a $1,187,800 prize pool. Only the top 2,150 players would make the money.
Ultimately it was the UK’s “Ben_Apart” who came out on top, banking the only six-figure payday of the weekend. He boosted his bankroll by a cool $119,737 after defeating Russia’s “yodashutka” heads-up ($86,812.73) with no deal in place.
“FIRSTLOVE888” TAKES DOWN $530 BOUNTY BUILDER HR FOR $63K
This weekend’s biggest High Roller Club prize was awarded in the $530 Bounty Builder HR. The Progressive KO tourney drew 1,067 total entries for a $533,500 prize pool split evenly between bounties and schedule prizes, setting up a $43,404 top prize.
China’s “Firstlove888” scored the big win, collecting an extra $20,346 in bounties to go with the winner’s purse after defeating past Sunday Million finalsit “paila02” of Argentina heads-up ($47,441 including bounties).
Past Sunday Million and TCOOP champion “kZhh” also appeared at the final table, earning $8,395 in prizes and bounties for finishing in eighth place, while past Sunday Million runner-up “4_VaNyA_4” from Romania finished ninth ($4,843).
Perhaps the most impressive victory came in the $2,100 Sunday Cooldown. Brazil’s Eduardo “edudrake1987” Pires picked up $54K in prizes and bounties in his victory against a final table that included the likes of Simon “C. Darwin2” Mattsson (2nd, $17K), Niklas “Lena900” Åstedt (3rd, $13K), “sk2ll_m0dr” (4th, $10K), and Samuel “€UROP€AN” Vousden (6th, $6,300).
