poker stars sunday million

April 30th 2007

The Poker Stars millions tournament this week attracted 2880 players and with the buy in at $530 the prize pool was agrand total of $1,440,400. The final table chip count was quite evenly spread with Aussie_Jase in the lead.

The table started slowly so it was a while before we saw the first casualty. AmichaiKK was first to go dominated with his :7d :7c against MattSuspect, holding :8s :8h The board came down :kc :jh :4s :3d :4c giving AmichaiKK $11,520 for 9th place.

It was the very next hand that MattSuspect nailed his second victim of the final table knocking Azzel out of the tournament. Holding pocket 10’s he moved all in and was called by Azzel holding :jh :qd The flop came down :9c :4d :8c and with the turn coming down :ks he had 8 outs needing either a 10,Q or J on the river to survive. Unfortunately for him it was an :ac knocking him out in 8th place winning $19,872.

Aussie_Jase who was the early chip leader when final table proceedings started then knocked out Dog11. Ausie_Jase raised holding pockets A’s and was then re raised by Dogg11 holding :ah :5h Aussie_Jase immediately called and Dog11’s heart must have sank as the card were flipped over seeing what he was up against. The A’s held up with the board showing :6d :9d :4c :jd :4h and Dog11 went out of the tournament winning $31,392 for 7th place.

With all this action happening in quick succession Gunning 4you decided to go for it, winning a race against Luie Sojo. Luie Sojo had a slight lead holding :8h :8s pre flop against Gunning4you’s :ah :jc This lead quickly evaporated though when the flop came down :7d :ac :4d and the turn and river was no help to Luie Sojo coming down :5h on the turn and :5s on the river giving him a 6th place prize of $44,640.

MattSuspect then took the chip lead knocking out Dubner, MattSuspect going all in holding :ah :qh against Dubner’s :9c :9d The flop was good to Dubner coming down :10c :6s :8s but the lead in the race quickly swung in MattSuspect’s favour with the :qc coming on the turn. Dubner need a J,9 or 7 on the river to stay in the tournament but none of them came with the :2d coming down. Dubner took a $59,040 5th place prize.

MattSuspect never looked back from this point onwards knocking out Aussie_Jase and Dazzy2004 in 4th and 3rd place.

First knocking out Aussie_Jase who was at this point on the short stack. Aussie_Jase pushed with :qs :4s and MattSuspect called with :as :5c The flop gave Aussie_Jase a chance of a flush coming down :7s :ks :10c but it never came with the turn and river coming down :6d :9h giving him $73,440.

Dazzy2004 then ran into MattSuspect holding pocket A’s when he pushed all in short stacked with :as :4h The A’s held up with the board coming down :3d :8s :3h :qs :kc and he was out in 3rd winning $89,136.

When we got to heads up play MattSuspect and Gunning4you worked out a prize split giving each player around $175,000 and left the remaining $30,000 to play for. This probably suited Gunning4you more as MattSuspect had the chip lead at this point. He was even happier at the decision to split when he ran into MattSuspect’s Pocket Jacks holding pocket 9’s. MattSuspects victory was complete when the board came down :5s :3h :8c :8d :kd giving him the $223,637 first prize.
