This week’s $109 Sunday Million was a big’n, with 11,300 entries. That set up a huge $1.13M prize pool, with just shy of $115K reserved for the winner.
When play got down to three-handed, however, the remaining hopefuls opted for a chop. The Czech Republic’s Jakub “Olli444” Oliva would end up taking it down for $97,937, while runner-up “Goatse113” won $77,365, and third-place finisher “IIewxa” banked $83,556.
The most recognisable name on the final table was none other than long-time high roller crusher Ole “wizowizo” Schemion. He’d ultimately fall in fifth-place for $31,874.
That win smashed Oliva’s previous biggest score of $32,000 (a Bigger $109 win back in 2014), and now takes his total online winnings up past $1.6M. He is currently ranked eighth in the Czech Republic for online poker, according to PocketFives, and also boasts more than $300K in live earnings.
As for our PokerStars Ambassadors, only Ben “Spraggy” Spragg and Lex Veldhuis made the money, cashing for $224 and $200 respectively.
Over in the High Roller Club, the biggest winner of Sunday’s session was Macedonia’s “pwndidi”, who took down the $530 Bounty Builder for $32,180 plus $31,780 in bounties.
The biggest name on the winner’s sheet, however, belonged to the prolific Patrick “pads1161” Leonard, who claimed yet another tournament win in the coveted $2,100 Sunday HR, good for $37,895.
Leonard outlasted the 78-runner field, overcoming a final table which included Steve “Mr Tim Caum” O’Dwyer and Sami “Lrslzk” Kelopuro.
