The Sunday Briefing: Adrian "Adrian900123" Marin Wins Sunday Warm-Up

Adrian Marin

Before the festivities for PokerStars' 10th Anniversary begin in December, the final Sunday of November had to get out of the way. Brazil's Robert "Robert Chiro" Chiró won the Sunday Million outright for more than $200,000, and Romania's Adrian "Adrian900123" Marin earned top honors in the Sunday Warm-Up for about $90,000. Also earning a victory on Sunday was Michiel "utreg" Brummelhuis of the Netherlands.

When the Sunday Million final table began, chip leader "Phantomes124" held nearly double the amount Robert "Robert Chiro" Chiró in second place. Riding the big stack, "Phantomes124" made it to three-handed play, but busted when his {A-Clubs}{7-Hearts} couldn't catch up to Chiró's {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades} when the board ran out {K-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades}{6-Spades}{8-Spades}.

Starting heads-up play, Chiró held about a 1.3:1 chip lead and had extended it by the time all the chips made it to the middle. On the final hand, with the blinds and antes at the 300K/600K/60K level, Chiró (43.6m) opened to 1.26 million on the button. Holding {A-Clubs}{Q-Clubs}, "chrisf44" (22.5m) three-bet to 3 million. Chiró came back over the top with a four-bet to about 7.6 million, only to see his opponent ship it in. With {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}, Chiró called and held up through the {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{K-Hearts} board to notch the victory.

Entering the final table of the Sunday Warm-Up, Vincent "Vingtcent" van der Fluit was chip leader, and Adrian "Adrian900123" Marin was not far behind. It was far from smooth sailing for van der Fluit, though, and with four players remaining, he saw a sizable chip lead turn into roughly a ten-big-blind stack.

He recovered to make it to three-handed play where a deal was agreed upon. After Marin eliminated "vincelis" in third place, he commanded a healthy 5.3:1 chip lead over his opponent. It didn't take long for it to end as Marin shoved {A-Hearts}{2-Clubs} and was met with an all-in call from van der Fluit who tabled {Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. A {9-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Spades}{5-Clubs}{6-Clubs} board brought no help to van der Fluit, securing the victory for Marin.
