The 14th Anniversary of the Sunday Million tournament was a big one. In fact, it was huge, with 93,016 total entries shared between 60,898 unique players. And after three days of exciting competition, it was a Brazilian player ‘AAAArthur’ who walked away with the title and $1,192,802 after a thrilling final table.
With a ridiculous prize-pool of $18.6 million, over six million dollars more than the advertised prize-pool of $12.5 million, everyone knew that the latter stages of this inimitable tournament were going to be extra-special. In fact, so juicy was the pot that 7,671 players entered the fray between the last deal on Day 1 and the first card off the deck on Day 2.
With a buy-in of $215, the action at the final table was great to watch, with D3cor the first player to exit. Over AAAArthur’s 8 million raise with king-ten of diamonds, D3cor shoved for 77 million with pocket fives and only AAAArthur called it off, a ten on the flop doing the damage to D3cor and ending his chances once a clear turn and river for AAAArthur appeared.
With blinds still 2 million/4 million, salonteskis made an all-in move for 405 million chips with pocket sevens. The player pokerfrance called off their 80 million stack with ace-queen and the run-out couldn’t help them, despite a jack and ten on the flop adding some outs.
