Sunday Tournament Report

The last Sunday is always the biggest Sunday of the month for online tournament pros, as extra tournaments get added, and tons of players come out. Yesterday was no different, as not only were the extra tournaments present, but the Sunday Warm-up was special yesterday, with it being a second chance tournament, giving players who busted within the first two hours, the option of rebuying and getting another 10k in chips in the process. As usual, let’s start off the coverage with the Sunday Million.

The Sunday Million once again saw over 8,000 players come out. The final table was devoid of any notables, but it’s tough for a pro, let alone anyone, to make the final table of the biggest online weekly tournament. However, these players fought all day, and in the end, the remaining four players made a deal, which locked up six figures for each of them. Avkid86 locked himself up over 100k with the chop, and another $30k when he beat result hk heads-up.
