JAKUB “Olli444” OLIVA WINS THE MILLY ($97K)

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.

As for our PokerStars Ambassadors, only Ben “Spraggy” Spragg and Lex Veldhuis made the money, cashing for $224 and $200 respectively.
