SUNDAY MILLION TITLE FOR MIKE “MUNCHENHB” TELKER

Last night the USA’s Mike Telker (playing from Cyprus) added a SUNDAY MILLION title to his very impressive résumé, one which now boasts $9.92 million in career online earnings.

Mike Telker wins SUNDAY MILLION

Throughout his career, Telker has won just about everything going. With two SCOOP final tables for a combined $960K, as well as a 2014 WCOOP title ($353K) and a 2014 Super Tuesday victory ($124K), his list of results could rival just about anyone’s. However, a win in the milly had eluded him until yesterday.

Telker banked $164,789.54 for his victory, outlasting 6,103 entries. He defeated Brazil’s “djjazz222” heads-up ($115,641.35) for the title, having already overcome a final table which included the likes of Chance “ChanceCU” Kornuth (5th – $39,966.47).
