Online Poker Weekend: 'livelikunger', '45 ACP Fanatic' Claim Sunday Majors

Online Poker Weekend: 'livelikunger', '45 ACP Fanatic' Claim Sunday Majors 0001

A healthy turnout of more than 8,200 players again made the PokerStars Sunday Million the weekend's largest online poker event. Honors went to "livelikunger" in the Sunday Million after a two-way chop, while over in the Full Tilt $750,000 Guarantee, "45 ACP Fanatic" broke through to a six-figure win. Elsewhere, Shannon Shorr returned to the winner's circle by capturing the Full Tilt Sunday Mulligan for nearly $49,000. Here are the highlights from Sunday's action:

PokerStars Sunday Million

The PokerStars Sunday Million attracted 8,268 players to the virtual felt on Sunday, creating a total prize pool of $1,653,600. Notable finishers outside the final table included hookembaby83 in 11th place ($8,268), Dolcetrix in 18th ($4,134) and Michael "inissint" Glasser in 31st ($1,984.32). These were the chip counts to start the final table:

U_TILT_ME - 19,185,352

chicokim - 17,721,353

dxu05 - 11,409,512

Mexxximum1 - 8,056,026

Ryan "g0lfa" D'Angelo - 6,811,907

Kappe85 - 6,087,080

Sir_winalot9 - 5,570,202

Tophandler - 4,759,696

livelikunger - 3,078,872

An early coin flip double-up by livelikunger set the stage for what would become a memorable final table. Mexxximum1 exited first at the 150,000/300,000/30,000 level. From middle position, Mexxximum1 made it 800,000 to play and chicokim reraised to 2,400,000 on the button. Mexxximum1 then shoved for 8,156,026 total and chicokim called with {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}, which trailed the {a-Spades}{k-Hearts} of Mexxximum1. The board ran out {q-Spades}{10-Spades}{4-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{5-Hearts} and chicokim made two pair, eliminating Mexxximum1 in ninth place for $11,575.20. Tophandler departed next, at 200,000/400,000/40,000. Chicokim opened to 989,898 under the gun and Tophandler raised all in from the button for 4,659,696 with {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}. Chicokim called and was in the lead with {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs}. The board ran out {k-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Hearts}{6-Spades}{6-Diamonds} and Tophandler's tournament was over in eighth place for $19,016.40.

Finishing in seventh place at 250,000/500,000/50,000 was Sir_winalot9. Kappe85 min-raised to 1,000,000 on the button and Sir_winalot9 shoved from the big blind for 3,822,702. Kappe85 called with {a-Hearts}{5-Diamonds} and was racing against Sir_winalot9's {2-Hearts}{2-Hearts}. The board ran out {q-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} and Sir_winalot9's deuces were counterfeited by the two pair on the board; giving him a payday of $28,938. Ryan "g0lfa" D'Angelo was the next to fall. He raised all in from the cutoff for 7,231,805 with {10-Spades}{9-Spades} and was called by chicokim in the big blind with {a-Clubs}{q-Spades}. The {a-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} flop kept chicokim in the lead, but the {9-Clubs} turn gave the edge to D'Angelo with two pair. However, the river was the {a-Diamonds} and D'Angelo lost to chicokim's trips, finishing sixth for $41,340.

However, chicokim busted next, at 400,000/800,000/80,000. On the button, chicokim raised to 2,400,000 and U_TILT_ME shoved with the bigger stack out of the small blind. Chicokim called all in with {k-Spades}{q-Spades} and led U_TILT_ME's {q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}. Unfortunately for chicokim, the board ran out {8-Clubs}{2-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{j-Clubs} and chicokim was flushed out of tournament in fifth place for $57,876. Those newfound chips for U_TILT_ME wouldn't last. After the next level arrived, livelikunger raised to 4,000,000 on the button and U_TILT_ME shoved for 12,815,590 from the big blind with {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}. After a few moments livelikunger called, but trailed with {a-Spades}{3-Hearts}. However, the board came {6-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{9-Spades}{7-Hearts} and U_TILT_ME was out in fourth place for $74,412. Kappe85 succumbed in third place after moving all in from the small blind for 2,810,320 with {10-Spades}{5-Spades} and getting called by livelikunger in the big blind with {9-Spades}{6-Clubs}. The board came {j-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{a-Clubs} and Kappe85 was sent to the rail in third place for $91,774.80. Livelikunger began heads-up play with almost a 2:1 chip lead and a deal was struck, guaranteeing each the following and leaving $30,000 to the winner:

livelikunger: $157,528.57

dxu05: $147,490.79

The match ended when dxu05 shoved with {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} and livelikunger called with {a-Clubs}{3-Hearts}. The board came {2-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}, with livelikunger's ace kicker good for the win. Dxu05 finished runner-up, taking home for $147,490.79, and livelikunger collected the PokerStars Sunday Million winner's share of $187,528.57.

Full Tilt $750,000 Guarantee

The Full Tilt $750K Guarantee drew a field of 3,736 this weekend with first place awarding $132,787.50. Among the best finishers falling shy of the final table were Jeremy "JBurleson" Burleson in 10th place ($7,200), Terry "Asiandude7" Eischens in 13th ($5,325), Steve Wong in 14th ($5,325) and Eugene "myrabbifoo" Katchalov in 36th ($2,250). The chip counts at the start of the final table were:

45 ACP Fanatic - 3,033,640

timhorr - 2,824,265

K7MA - 2,045,197

WSOP Legend - 1,063,490

Joeyv1234 - 814,917

Timothy "highlandfox" Finne - 616,025

dedhedaap - 387,572

frickafricka - 223,094

spady 007 - 199,800

The first to be sent to the rail was K7MA at 20,000/40,000/5,000. From the cutoff K7MA raised, but was put to the ultimate decision when 45 ACP Fanatic shoved all in from the button with the bigger stack. The blinds folded and K7MA called all in with {a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}, in a race against ACP Fanatic's {j-Clubs}{j-Spades}. The board rolled out {k-Spades}{4-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} and K7MA came in second place in this race, finishing in ninth place for $10,050. Timothy "highlandfox" Finne was the next to make his exit, at 25,000/50,000/6,000. Timhorr opened the pot to 150,000 under the gun and Finne reraised all in with {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} from middle position. A call from timhorr revealed {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs} and when the board ran out {6-Spades}{4-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}, Timothy "highlandfox" Finne was out in eighth place for $13,500. A few hands later spady 007 was kicked to the curb. On the button, frickafricka raised almost enough to set spady 007 in the big blind all in, and spady 007 called with {k-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}. Frickafricka held {a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} and won the hand when the board delivered {9-Spades}{a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{k-Clubs}. The seventh-place finish paid spady 007 $17,250. Towards the end of the level frickafricka was bounced as well, when his {a-Hearts}{4-Clubs} went against WSOP Legend's {j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}. The board delivered no ace and frickafricka was eliminated in sixth place for $23,025.

At 40,000/80,000/8,000 Joeyv1234 busted after calling all in for 148,622 with {10-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}, up against WSOP Legend's {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}. The board came {6-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{7-Hearts} and Joeyv1234's tournament was over in fifth place for $31,050. WSOP Legend's quest for a win also came up short. All in for 1.1 million, WSOP Legend was ahead with {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs} against timhorr's {a-Diamonds}{8-Spades}, but an ace came on the flop. WSOP Legend failed to catch up and finishing in fourth place for $41,400. Three-handed play favored 45 ACP Fanatic, as he built a chip lead that would not be surmounted. At 50,000/100,000/10,000, the chip counts at one point were these:

45 ACP Fanatic - 9,887,862

timhorr - 703,354

dedhedaap - 616,784

Timhorr busted in third, when 45 ACP Fanatic shoved from the button and timhorr called all in for 643,354 with {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}. 45 ACP Fanatic tabled {k-Spades}{2-Clubs} and won the hand outright when the board rolled out {q-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{k-Hearts}{8-Clubs}. Third place earned timhorr a $52,500 payday. The heads-up battle lasted one hand as 45 ACP Fanatic closed out the match. Dedhedaap shoved on the button with {k-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and 45 ACP Fanatic called with {k-Spades}{10-Clubs}. The flop came {3-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{k-Hearts} and dedhedaap took the lead. The {7-Clubs} turn left dedhedaap ahead, but the river {3-Diamonds} gave 45 ACP Fanatic two pair with a ten kicker. The runner-up finish paid dedhedaap $80,250, while the winner of the Full Tilt $750,000 Guarantee was 45 ACP Fanatic for $132,787.50.
