Sunday Briefing: Ewald 'SPEWTARD' Olivera Secures His Largest Cash

Sunday Million
  • The Sunday Million ended in a three-way chop, which netted the trio a combined $350,991.

Ewald “SPEWTARD” Olivera had a Sunday to remember on April 30, securing the largest online poker tournament cash of his year when he won the PokerStars Sunday Million.

During December 2016, Olivera won the $250,000 Gtd Title Fight at partypoker and banked $41,972 for his victory. This was his biggest cash haul until this weekend when Olivera had $155,588 added to his PokerStars account when he topped a field of 5,392 players in the Sunday Million.

Olivera could have been boasting of a $161,671 score but he was part of a three-handed deal with “leopol6d1988” ($89,401) and “antispeed” ($106,002) which left $20,000 for the eventual champion. That champion was, of course, Olivera and the Peruvian now has more than $750,000 in online tournament cashes.
