Egar1m settles for nothing less than first
Not willing to settle for anything less than what he wanted, Egar1m ended up coming from behind in the PokerStars Sunday Million and taking the top prize without making a deal.
Amid a crowd of more than 2,000 players, Egar1m made his way into the final table of the major weekly tournament on Sunday. When play got to three-handed, chip leader Sir_DonaldRM offered the other players a split based on chip count that would leave them with better than the second- and third-place prize amounts.
It was a pretty generous offer considering Sir_DonaldRM had just under $17 million in chips compared to the $7 million in kaweco's possession and Egar1m's $2.5 million.
But Egar1m turned down the deal, which would have netted him $20,000 more than the first-place spot he seemed poised to take in the tournament.
As it turned out, it was the right decision. Kaweco went out in third and Egar1m managed to turn the tables on Sir_DonaldRM, taking over the chip lead and turning down another proposed deal before heading into the winner's circle.
For his win, he received nearly a quarter of a million dollars. The final-table results were as follows:
Egar1m wasn't the only playing picking up big money from PokerStars on Sunday. Three other tournaments also left players taking home thousands of dollars in extra cash.
