Online Poker Weekend: 'kesher79' Takes Stars Sunday Million 0001

The PokerStars Sunday Million attracted 7,999 participants for a total prize pool of $1,599,800. Notable finishers included Lee "Bill Ivey" Gaines in 15th ($5,599) and iCeVeNoM in 29th ($2,880). Two players were eliminated on the hand-for-hand bubble, so eight players reached the final table. The starting chip counts were as follows:

Jim "Mr_BigQueso" Collopy - 17,791,780

kesher79 - 13,642,058

orkim - 12,694,157

mjluth - 11,728,249

maverick8487 - 9,796,110

jarocho123 -5,389,440

rS.Wisdom - 4,937,219

RiverCardRob - 4,010,987

The first to exit the final table was jarocho123. With blinds and antes 200,000/400,000/40,000, jarocho123's tournament life was on the line with {a-Spades}{q-Diamonds} against kesher79's {4-Diamonds}{4-Spades}. When the board rolled out {k-Spades}{10-Spades}{5-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}, jarocho123 was sent packing in eighth for $18,397.70. A few hands later, RiverCardRob's tournament was at stake as well with {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} against rS.Wisdom's {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}. When the flop and turn came {4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{5-Spades} to put RiverCardRob in the lead. The longshot {q-Hearts} fell on fifth street and RiverCardRob was out in seventh for $27,996.50.

At 250,000/500,000/50,000, rS.Wisdom raised 1,300,000 and orkim called from the small blind. The flop came {6-Spades}{4-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and orkim led out for 1,500,000. A flat-call by rS.Wisdom led to the {k-Hearts} on the turn. This time orkim checked and rS.Wisdom bet 1,500,000. Orkim called and the river came the {7-Hearts}. Orkim checked again and rS.Wisdom shoved with the bigger stack. Orkim thought it over for a few moments before calling with {8-Clubs}{8-Spades}; however, it was second best to rS.Wisdom's {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}. Orkim finished in sixth for $40,794.90. Later in the level, kesher79 raised to 1,250,000 from the cutoff and Jim "Mr_BigQueso" Collopy shoved for 12,350,900 with {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, but ran into kesher79's {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}. The board ran out {9-Clubs}{10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds} and Collopy was busted in fifth for $56,792.90. Maverick8487 made a move with {5-Hearts}{5-Spades} and ran into kesher79's {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}. No five appeared and maverick8487 was the fourth-place finisher for $72,790.90.

The final two bustouts occurred at 300,000/600,000/60,000. Mjluth shoved from the small blind for just over 10,000,000 with {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts} and was called by kesher79 from the big blind with {k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}. kesher79's queen paired as the board ran out {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{q-Hearts}{8-Spades}, giving Mjluth $89,588.80 for third. Kesher79 began heads-up with a 3:2 chip lead and clinched the tournament on the sixth hand of heads-up play. On the button, kesher79 opened to 1,800,000 and rS.Wisdom called. The flop came {j-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} and rS.Wisdom check-called a bet of 2,400,000. The {a-Clubs} hit the turn and this time rS.Wisdom check-called a bet of 6,000,000. The river came the {2-Spades} and rS.Wisdom check-called all in for 19 million. Kesher79 turned up {2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} for quads and rS.Wisdom's {a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} for two pair wasn't close. The second-place finish paid rS.Wisdom $132,143.48, while kesher79's win was worth $195,975.50.
