Sunday Briefing: Andras Nemeth Wins the Sunday Million

Andras Nemeth
  • Andras Nemeth was a big winner online this weekend, taking down the Sunday Million for $164,244.32.

With so many massive online tournaments taking place every Sunday, you don’t have to travel to Las Vegas for the 2016 World Series of Poker to win big.

Just as Andras “probirs” Nemeth won this week’s Sunday Million at PokerStars for $164,244.32. Nemeth finished on top after a three-way deal involving “Penelas08” ($149,968.21” and Paulo “tricotijr” Novaes ($149,247.47).

Another PokerStars tournament ending in a chop was the Sunday Warm-Up, which saw the United Kingdom’s “OLDWOLF133” walk away with $52,149.56 and “JEKAAA7” bank a cool $43,162.44 after a heads-up chop, while Sweden’s “Abbe77” and Russia’s “papan9_p$” chopped the Sunday Grand, netting $58,792.22 and $48,550.18.

Other big PokerStars wins included:

  • “lenballs1014” – first place in the Sunday Kickoff for $18,402.94
  • Gustavo “gremistaAK” Pinto – first place in the Big $109 for $23,048.19
  • “nofair18” – first place in the Super-Sized Sunday for $33,380.65
  • Luis “Turko_man” Rodriguez – first place in the Big $215 for $24,070.87
  • Pedro “peterwhooo” Correa – first place in the Sunday Cooldown for $21,808.50
  • “Sale1337” – first place in the Sunday Supersonic for $33,886.58

TruTi0 Takes Down the partypoker Super High Roller

The biggest weekly tournament at partypoker, in terms of buy-in size, is the $2,600 Super High Roller. It has been consistently beating its $100,000 guarantee, and this week was no different as 58 entrants took part, entrants who were outlasted by “TrueTi0”, who collected a $47,125 for their victory.

Partypoker also has two $150,000 guaranteed Sunday tournaments, the Main Event and $530 High Roller. The former was won by “Cri.du.Chat” for $24,150.15 with the latter won by “BOOMALOOM” for a bankroll-boosting $32,077.50.

TeamShippo Ships the 888poker Whale

The $600 Whale returned to 888poker this week and saw its $120,000 guarantee surpassed by $12,210. “TeamShippo” was the best beneficiary of this larger prize pool because they won the tournament and banked a cool $27,036.94 for their efforts.

A similar sized score was had by “tedwho1” who outlasted a field of 640 in the $100,000 Mega Deep for $24,179.20, while Argentina’s “valitopkr11” won the $80,000 Sunday Challenge for $12,943.43 but it was Ireland’s Gary “garyt20” Thompson who secured the largest payout, $13,230.41, thanks to a three-way chop.
