Here’s everything you need to know from the weekend on PokerStars…
- Thomas Muehloecker takes down $2,100 Sunday HR ($40K)
- Kazakhstan’s “Newcomer113” wins huge Sunday Million PKO edition ($106K)
- Top 5 results from the High Roller Club
- Biggest results from the weekend majors
Yesterday’s $109 Sunday Million was a little bit different. Instead of the usual format, the Milly played out as a Progressive Knock-Out, with bounties building on the heads of each player as the tournament went on.
It proved very popular, with a massive 16,281 entries creating a $1.62M prize pool. With half of that designated to bounties, it meant lots of players were able to lock up huge scores without even reaching the final table.
Of those who did, it was Kazakhstan’s “Newcomer113” who went all the way. He defeated Russia’s “Bykladjo” heads-up to take it down with no deal for $70,097 plus $35,971 in bounties.
While Canada’s “Krasark” was the High Roller Club’s biggest weekend winner (emerging victorious in the $530 Bounty Builder for a $66K score), Austria’s Thomas “WushuTM” Muehloecker was the most recognisable.
Muehloecker took down the $2,100 Sunday High Roller yesterday for $40,146, outlasting an 84-player field comprised of many of online poker’s very best. To capture the title, Muehloecker had to navigate his way through a final table which included Alex “BigFox86” Foxen (2nd – $30,867), Artem “veeea” Vezhenkov (4th – $18,247), and Dominik “Bounatirou” Nitsche (6th – $10,787).
Muehloecker is now ranked sixth in the world online, according to PocketFives.
