Sincinaty118 Wins $5m Sunday Million, Shorr Takes Sunday 500
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*
