Buy-inEntrantsPrize Pool
$200+$156,525$1,305,000

In a most unusual occurrence, this week's Sunday Million had the same number of players as last week. Unlike last week, however, a deal was made between the final three players. The chip leader at the start of the final table, "dan82mur," made it to three-handed play with the chip lead. However, it was the other two players who got involved in the first elimination pot after the deal was struck. With the board reading {A-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{2-Hearts}{6-Clubs}, Chris "DaGoddfather" Lastiwka's {A-Spades}{K-Clubs} held up against "Robban_F's" {10-Spades}{9-Hearts} when the {7-Clubs} landed on the river.

Lastiwka finished it off with {Q-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} against "dan82mur's" {Q-Spades}{J-Hearts}. The final board came down {8-Spades}{7-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{K-Spades}{A-Clubs} to secure the victory, as well as $163,877.79, for Lastiwka.

The Sunday Warm-Up saw an increase in attendance of more than 100 players this week, adding $22,000 more to the prize pool than last week. Entering the final table with the chip lead was "marcotorino," who eventually went on to win the tournament. With both four and three players left, there were discussions for a deal, but no agreements were made. In the end, it was a heads-up duel between "marcotorino" and "Astor626." It came to an end when "Astor626" called all-in with {A-Clubs}{3-Spades}. However, "marcotorino" was way ahead with {A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}. The board ran out {Q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{5-Spades} to give "marcotorino" a winning pair of queens to seal the deal.
