Gunslinger3 last man standing in Sunday Million
A five-way chip-count chop at the end of the PokerStars Sunday Million this week saw several players taking home big money, but in the end it was Gunslinger3 who was the last man standing to earn the win and the extra cash.
Gunslinger 3 may regret having agreed to a chop when play got down to five players. He was second in the chip count and got a big share of the remaining prize pool in the chop, but had he held out for the win, he could have gone home even richer.
The players and the chip-count chop were:
- RBC*: $121,197
- Gunslinger3: $110,921
- M.nosbocaJ: $89,013
- Bastinho06: $88,441
- OCTAGONS: $83,907
The biggest beneficiary of the chop turned out to be RBC*. He got the biggest piece of the chop since he had the highest chip count, but just two hands after the chop he lost a massive pot to Gunslinger3 and eventually ended up in fourth place.
In the end it came down to Gunslinger3 against M.nosbocaJ for the remaining $30,000 left from the chop. M.nosbocaJ was looking at a pretty hefty deficit with his $9.4 million in chips against Gunslinger3's $67 million.
Gunslinger3 won the first three hands of heads-up play pre-flop, and M.nosbocaJ reclaimed chips over the next three hands, but there wouldn't be a miraculous comeback for the Swede.
In the seventh hand, his pocket fives went up against Gunslinger3's J♣ T♦ and the flop brought K♦ 2♦ J♥ to give Gunslinger3 the lead. When the turn and river came 7♥ 9♣, Gunslinger3 had the win.
The PokerStars Sunday Million final-table results were:
Players from the United States also won the Sunday Warm-Up at PokerStars and the Sunday Two Hundred Grand. Americans couldn't get away with a clean sweep of major events, however, as a German took the Sunday Second Chance tournament and a player from Monaco won the $5,200 Freezeout.
The results from each of the events are as follows:
Sunday Two Hundred Grand
Sunday Second Chance
Sunday $5,200 Freezeout
Based on finishing order and three-way deal
