Poker Stars Million

The Poker Stars Million event attracted the largest field of 7,651 entrants this week’s big online poker tournaments.  The total prize pool created by this field reached just over $1.5 million dollars.  The first place prize was set at $187,449.50 with the rest of the prize pool being shared down to 1170th place.

Once the final table of nine players had been reached AmirSF held a healthy chip lead with just over $16 million in chips with second placed ILLOS72 having just over $11 million.  The short stacked player matt1269 had just over $3 million in chips and had a lot of work to do.

Play through out the final table was quite aggressive with a lot of coin flip situations coming about.  This helped reduce the field quickly and once there was only four players left a deal was struck to split the money.  AmirSF was the big chip leader so took the most from the split taking $142,970.  ILLOS72 had the next big stack so took $108,780 and RoxmorE who had a similar stack to HuBaer guaranteed themselves over $90,000 each. As per Poker Stars rules $30,000 was left for the eventual winner.  Considering fourth place was originally set to be paid $69.624 and third place was $85,691 every one ensured themselves a big pay day.

From this point onwards RoxmorE had the best of the play eliminating both ILLOS72 and HuBaer into third and fourth place.  This put him in the chip lead against AmirSF going into heads up with a 2-1 chip lead.  After twelve hours play the final hand came when RoxmorE got his chips in with :6c :6h and came up against :kc :7c The pocket pair held up giving RoxmorE the victory and the additional $30,000 boosting his winnings to $121,664.40.
