Ireland’s sincinaty118 scooped $421,971 in the enormous $5m GTD PokerStars Sunday Million yesterday while Shannon Shorr won the Sunday 500 for the second time of his career.

The massive $5 million-guarantee on this week’s Sunday Million ensured that PokerStars would be packed with players.

A total of 26,925 entries in the Sunday Million cranked the prizepool up to a staggering $5.3 million.

Originally the first-place prize was set at $484k but that proved to be just a tad top-heavy for the last five players.

They decided to cut a deal, which guaranteed sincinaty118 at least $321,971. He would eventually win a lot more than that as he beat Israeli FLasHBa3k heads-up to snag the title for a potentially life-changing $421,971.

Here’s how the final table payouts worked out (*reflects the five-way deal):

  • 1. sincinaty118 (Ireland) $421,971.88*
  • 2. FLasHBa3k (Israel) $261,359.81*
  • 3. dadoferal (Montenegro) $230,028.85*
  • 4. bdklizm (Norway) $229,450.46*
  • 5. elastobert (Germany) $240,595.50*
  • 6. Alfons777999 (Russia) $80,775
  • 7. Mr.Hazard70 (Finland) $53,850
  • 8. socke2506 (Germany) $40,387.50
  • 9. zet1981 (Austria) $26,925
