The Sunday Briefing: Sean Getzwiller Tops Jake Bazeley to Win PokerStars Sunday Million

Sean Getzwiller

With the PokerStars Sunday Million regularly attracting more than 7,000 participants every week, once in a while you'll see a well-known pro sidestep the landmines and find the winner's circle. But it's not often you see two top players battle heads-up for the title.

On Sunday, Sean Getzwiller and Jacob Bazeley were the last two players standing from a huge field of 7,748 in the Sunday Million, Getzwiller, a WSOP bracelet winner, eventually walked away with the title and the top prize of $232,443.

According to the PokerStars Blog, Getzwiller had a sizable lead on Bazeley when heads-up play began and the two briefly discussed the terms of a deal. After Bazeley decided to decline, the two exchanged a few pots before seeing a {J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{2-Clubs} flop. A raising war ensued that resulted in Bazeley three-betting all-in with {K-Spades}{10-Diamonds}. Getzwiller called and was in front with {K-Clubs}{K-Hearts}, and the {A-Diamonds} turn and {4-Spades} river sealed his title.

Others finding success on Sunday were Joseph "bigegypt" Elpayaa, Jonas "clowndick" Mackoff, Rens "Rens02" Feenstra, Peter "Se7enTr3y" Akery, and Casey "bigdogpckt5s" Jarzabek.
