Online Poker Weekend: 'LosChief', 'bigdennys' Capture Majors

Online Poker Weekend: 'LosChief', 'bigdennys' Capture Majors 0001

"LosChief" and "bigdennys" were the chiefs of <a href=https://www.pokernews.com/online-poker-rooms.htm>online poker</a> on Sunday, triumphing in the PokerStars Sunday Million and the special monthly Full Tilt $1 Million Guaranteed, respectively. Bigdennys scored the night's biggest payday in the Full Tilt special event, collecting $206,106.08, while LosChief won out after a two-way chop in the Sunday Million, finishing with a total of $183,134.80 for his efforts. Here's how the action unfolded:

PokerStars Sunday Million

The PokerStars Sunday Million attracted a field of 8,260 for a total prize pool of $1,652,000. Among the best finishes short of the final table were 4ofaKindBud in 13th place ($5,782), AJinOK in 17th ($4,130), Stuart "thedonator" Paterson in 24th ($3,304), Steve "MrSmokey1" Billirakis in 35th ($2,973.60), Paul "ComeOnPhish" Lieu in 59th ($2,478), Greg "DuckU" Hobson in 60th ($2,478), Scott "SCTrojans" Freeman in 61st ($2,478) and Faraz "The-Toilet 0" Jaka in 62nd ($2,478). The chips counts to start the final table were as follows:

twopairdad – 18,272,833

LosChief – 12,200,744

Oracle MCA – 11,041,821

AngeL_fH – 9,848,917

Birdstone44 – 8,614,498

play2call – 7,921,473

Aaron "dyeti" Armstrong – 5,459,890

Raccabacka – 4,982,369

Matt "swifterjet" Swift – 4,257,455

Eliminated from the final table first was Raccabacka, at the 150,000/300,000/30,000 level. From middle position, twopairdad raised to 900,000 and Raccabacka moved all in from the big blind for 4,152,870, backing {3-Hearts}{3-Spades}. Twopairdad held {a-Diamonds}{5-Spades} and called, winning the pot as the board rolled out {2-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}. Raccabacka earned 11,564 for the ninth-place showing. At 200,000/400,000/40,000, AngeL_fH busted. Play2call opened with a min-raise to 800,000 and twopairdad smooth-called from the small blind. AngeL_fH then reraised to 1,985,500 out of the big blind and only twopairdad came along. The flop came {2-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{5-Spades} and AngeL_fH check-raised from 400,000 to 1,995,000. Twopairdad called and when the turn came the {3-Hearts}, a flurry of bets and raises led to AngeL_fH's tournament life being at risk with {a-Spades}{a-Clubs}, now trailing twopairdad's {a-Hearts}{4-Hearts} for a straight. An ace or two would have to hit the river to save AngeL_fH, but it was the {10-Hearts} which made a flush for twopairdad. AngeL_fH took home $18,998 for eighth place. Play2call exited at the 250,000/500,000/25,000 level. From under the gun, play2call shoved for 4,116,473 with {4-Clubs}{4-Spades} and found action from Oracle MCA, who held {a-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}. The board ran out {5-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{a-Hearts} and play2call was out in seventh place for $28,910.

Aaron "dyeti" Armstrong was the casualty of 300,000/600,000/60,000. He was all in for his last 1,640,670 with {k-Spades}{10-Diamonds} and was up against the pocket jacks of LosChief. The board delivered no kings as Armstrong departed in sixth place for $41,300. Oracle MCA departed next at 400,000/800,000/80,000. After losing a key pot to Matt "swifterjet" Swift, Oracle MCA's tournament life was on the line with {a-Hearts}{j-Clubs} against twopairdad's {k-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}. The board, however, came {9-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}, and Oracle MCA hit the rail in fifth place for $57,820. Matt "swifterjet" Swift was the next to go. After losing a good portion of his chips when his A-Q ran into Birdstone44's A-K, Swift committed his last 2,824,172 with {j-Hearts}{5-Spades}. Unfortunately for Swift, he ran into twopairdad's {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}. The board ran out {q-Hearts}{k-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{4-Clubs} and Swift exited in fourth place for $74,340. Two hands later, Birdstone44 shoved from the small blind with a big stack and twopairdad called all in for 8,473,328 with {3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}. Birdstone44 held {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts} and when the board rolled out {j-Clubs}{8-Spades}{6-Spades}{10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}, Birdstone44 made the nut straight to eliminate twopairdad in third place for 91,686.

The final two competitors then struck a deal that guaranteed each the following:

LosChief - $153,134.80

Birdstone44 - $151,560.40

With $30,000 on the line, LosChief held a slight edge as play resumed and went on to the win. On the final hand Birdstone444 shoved for 13,084,204 with {k-Hearts}{j-Spades} and LosChief called with {k-Clubs}{5-Clubs}. The flop was a safe {a-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{10-Spades} for Birdstone44, but the turn was the {5-Spades} that put LosChief ahead. The river was the {8-Diamonds} and Birdstone44 was eliminated as the runner-up, winning $151,560.40, with LosChief collecting $183,134.80 for winning the PokerStars Sunday Million.

Final Results:

1. LosChief - $183,134.80

2. Birdstone44 - $151,560.40

3. twopairdad - $91,686

4. Matt "swifterjet" Swift - $74,340

The chip counts to start the final table were as follows:

bigdennys – 2,042,804

Steve "gboro780" Gross – 1,924,990

4kappa – 1,355,707

callcallfold – 1,202,096

pokerfiend48 – 989,813

shhhookem – 978,579

icefisherman5 – 858,544

jkerr31 – 818,989

Jkerr31 hit the rail first at the 20,000/40,000/5,000 level. From early position, shhhookem raised to 100,000 and jkerr31 called from the big blind. The flop came {q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} and jkerr31 went all in for 533,889, holding {q-Spades}{3-Spades}. A quick call from shhhookem revealed {k-Spades}{k-Clubs}. The turn and river were blanks for jkerr31 who earned $15,729 for ninth place. Next to bust was callcallfold at 30,000/60,000/7,500. An open raise to 420,000 by callcallfold brought a reraise from icefisherman5. Callcallfold called all in and showed {8-Spades}{8-Diamonds}, but trailed icefisherman5's {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}. The board ran out {2-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{k-Spades}{2-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} and callcallfold departed eighth place for $20,672.40.

Shhhookem went out at 40,000/80,000/10,000. After pokerfiend48 raised to 190,000 from middle position, shhhookem went all in for 583,464 from the cutoff with {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}. Pokerfiend48 called with {10-Spades}{9-Diamonds} and was able to win the pot when the board rolled out {10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{8-Hearts}{7-Hearts}. The seventh-place finish paid shhhookem $26,420.25. Icefisherman5 fell at 50,000/100,000/10,000 after making a stand for 531,284 with {k-Spades}{8-Hearts}. 4kappa provided action with {a-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} and won the hand on the river when the board came {8-Spades}{q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{q-Spades}{a-Hearts}. The sixth-place finish paid icefisherman5 $35,952. Later in the level, luckbox... wasn't, when Bigdennys won a race with {3-Spades}{3-Hearts} against luckbox's {q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}. The board ran out {10-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{6-Hearts} and luckbox was out the door in fifth for $49,995.75. 4kappa soon followed. Under the gun, 4kappa shoved for 824,919 with {a-Clubs}{6-Clubs} and found action from Steve "gboro780" Gross in the big blind with {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}. The board brought no ace, running out {7-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}, and 4kappa took home $66,061.80 for fourth place.

Pokerfiend49 made the final three before succumbing. At 60,000/120,000/15,000 Steve Gross raised all in from the small blind with over five million in chips, holding {10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}. From the big blind, pokerfiend48 called all in for 1,298,702 and tabled {a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. The cards came out {8-Spades}{j-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{k-Spades}{3-Clubs} as Gross made a pair to send pokerfiend48 to the rail in third place for $82,801.95. The chip counts to begin heads-up play were as follows:

Steve "gboro780" Gross – 6,702,727

bigdennys – 4,532,273

The players were nearly even in chips when the key hand occurred. Gross raised to 315,000 and bigdennys called, leading to a {4-Spades}{q-Spades}{k-Hearts} flop. Bigdennys check-raised Gross' bet, from 360,000 to 960,000. Gross pushed all in and bigdennys snap-called with {k-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} for two pair. Gross held {j-Spades}{7-Spades} for the flush draw and needed to catch up, but the turn and river blanked. The match ended in the next hand, when bigdenny's {8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} defeated Gross' {k-Diamonds}{6-Spades} as the board came {a-Spades}{7-Clubs}{j-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}. This gave Steve "gboro780" Gross second-place money of $126,506.10, while bigdennys collected $206,106.08 for taking down the monthly Full Tilt $1 Million Guarantee.

Final Results:

1. bigdennys - $206,106.08
