After a full day of poker on Sunday it took almost six hours more on Monday to decide it, and following a five-handed deal “TTPlayer18” of Germany emerged as champion of the Sunday Storm 9th Anniversary, a.k.a. the MicroMillions Main Event.
The five-way deal meant that while just over $100K was originally due the winner, more final table players making it to the end were able to realize some truly eye-boggling ROIs for the event.
“Nick92NK” of Ukraine took runner-up and a cool $63,611.83. “rafa10201554” Brazil took third, “ALL INB1TC” of Canada finished fourth, and “cberbel” of Brazil went out in fifth after all also being involved in the endgame chop.
The 128,753 entries into the $11 buy-in Main Event meant the $1 million guarantee was easily met, with the prize pool ultimately totaling $1,261,779.40 and the top 21,347 places paid.
Here are the MicroMillions Main Event final table results:
Over the course of the 101-event tournament series, “rusTuristo” of Russia finished in the money most frequently, getting there 39 times altogether, well ahead of the nearest challengers tying for 30 cashes.
Here’s a look at the top 10 as far as collecting cashes went. Interestingly, “Kaczy93” is 10th out of 10 on this list though the top earner thanks to a second-place showing in Event No. 75 ($3.30+R NLHE, 8-Max) won by “SpartacusOS.”
The tournament series keep coming on PokerStars, with the Spring Championship of Online Poker just around the corner featuring 240 tournaments and more than $85 million in guaranteed prize pools.
