Pokerstars Sunday Million - Logo"DrUPSWING" of Germany took down the Sunday Million 8th Anniversary special on Monday morning for a payday of $1,038,540.31.

Pokerstars celebrated the 8th anniversary of their Sunday Million by guaranteeing a total prize pool of $8 million. The tournament ended up easily topping its guarantee, as 46,586 players ended up turning out for the $215 buy-in event. This mammoth turnout ended up creating a total prize pool of $9,317,200.


Given the massive field, the tournament took roughly 15 hours to reach its conclusion.

Once the tournament was down to just two players ("DrUPSWING" and "hdjgkfkgsdl"), a deal was reached that saw the remaining prize money almost evenly divided between the two players, minus the $160,000 extra that would go to the eventual winner.

The final hand of the tournament saw a flop of 2s-2h-Ah. The two players got their stacks into the middle of the table and flipped over:

"DrUPSWING", Jd-2d
"hdjgkfkgsdl", Kh-Qh

"DrUPSWING" had flopped trip deuces, while "hdjgkfkgsdl" had flopped a flush draw. The turn brought the Kc, giving "hdjgkfkgsdl" a few more outs to win the hand. The river brought the Jc, giving "DrUPSWING" a full house and the victory.


A total of 5,997 players ended up cashing in this event.

Here is how the final table ended up finishing out:
