There was another good turn out for Poker Stars and Full Tilt in this weekend’s big Online Poker Tournaments.  The Poker Stars Million attracted 8,664 amassing a prize pool of $1,732,800 and the Full Tilt $750,000 Guarantee had 4,188 starters, pushing the prize pool to $87,600 over its guarantee.  The Bodog $100,000 tournament didn’t do so well having to make up just over 30% of the guarantee with a $33,500 overlay.

Poker Stars Million

This weeks Poker Stars Million guaranteed event had a very good turn out and presented the winner with a $209,942 payday, the biggest online tournament payout of the weekend.

Once the final table stage was reached Bob Vitis held the chip lead with £17 million in chips.  WywrotX wasn’t far behind in second with $15m.  The rest of the field was bunched together with third place having $10m and the short stack having $3m.

It turned out that the top four chip leaders at the start of the final table would be ones who made it to four handed play.  This is when they decided to make a deal and split the remaining prize money, leaving $30,000 for the eventual winner, as per Poker Stars rules. This was between jbrown04, Bob Vitis, wywrotX and StefanProdan.  It was StefanProdan who eventually came through victorious taking home $168,296. The rest of the final standings was as follows

Bodog 100,000 Guaranteed

The Bodog $100,000 guaranteed tournament attracted nearly the same number of players as last week which meant Bodog had to over lay almost a third of the total guarantee.  This also meant that this was very good value for the 655 entrants buying in for£100.

The player to profit most and take first place was KrazyKido taking the £23,000 first place prize.  Heads up was a good battle with quanberg but KrazyKido came through in the end. The rest of the final table standing was as follows.
