7th Anniversary Sunday Million Exceeds $7 Million Guarantee

By , Rakeback.com Poker News Editor

It's hard to believe that the PokerStars Sunday Million, the largest weekly poker tournament in the world, is 7 years old. It's even harder to believe that the $7 million guaranteed prize pool for the celebratory event crushed its $7 million prize pool guarantee.

In total, 49,287 players participated - including 52 PokerStars pros. At $215 a piece, the total prize pool was staggering - $9,857,400. The top prize was slated at over $1.2 million.

After the tournament had been running for 15 hours, the final 3 players reached a deal which guaranteed each of them over $700,000 (they ultimately all took home over $800,000).

When play concluded, a Lilthuanian player with the screen name "benislovas" took down the title and $848,000. Not a bad payday for a $215 buy-in!
