PokerStars Sunday November 20th 2011 Tournament Report

November 21, 2011

PokerStars was real busy this past weekend, as there were two tournaments with over a $1M prize pool. We’re going to take a look at the results from the best poker tournaments at PokerStars this past Sunday. There were a couple big deals and 1 deal included 6 different players. If you ever want a chance to win 5-6 figures in a single day you need to make sure you participate in a few of the Sunday Majors. Don’t forget that players can qualify throughout the week for free or next to nothing at PokerStars for all of the big events hosted on Sundays at PokerStars.

PokerStars Red Spade Open

• Entrants – 28,338 / Prize Pool – $1,416,900

This week PokerStars hosted a special Red Spade Open event with a guaranteed prize pool of at least $1M. The prize pool easily went over the guaranteed amount and it was great to see such a huge turnout in a tournament with a $55 buy-in. Six players ended up cutting a deal in the Red Spade Open on Sunday and they managed to all walk away with a lot of money. David Labchuck won $121K for 1st place, Glhf99 won $122K for 2nd place, Juanchiski won $120K for 3rd place, DavoDam won $197K for 4th place, SkopeQ won $63K for 5th place and JudasSK won $58K for 6th place.

PokerStars Sunday Million

• Entrants – 7023 / Prize Pool – $1,404,600

The Sunday Million also ran on Sunday at PokerStars this week and it still drew a huge crowd even though the Red Spade Open was also running. Over 7000 players played in the PokerStars Sunday Million this past week and the top 3 players ended up cutting a deal with each other. Muha84 won the tournament after the deal was made and ended up winning $198K. Wiklund won $150K for finishing the event in 2nd place and Haporuu won $129K for finishing the Sunday Million in 3rd place.

PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up

• Entrants – 3497 / Prize Pool – $699,400

There was another 3-way deal in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up this weekend. Everyone was in the cheerful mood and I guess most players are getting in the Christmas spirit early this year. Pendos90 ended up winning the Sunday Warm-Up and the 1st place prize of $91K after the deal was made. Acura2603 won $76K in the tournament this weekend and TMMPOKPOK took home $81K for finishing the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up in 3rd place.

PokerStars Sunday 500

• Entrants – 779 / Prize Pool – $389,500

The PokerStars Sunday 500 usually doesn’t end up with a deal being made, but the top 2 players made a deal this week and they both earned nearly the same. Pvd170590 won $63K for 1st place while Dadowiec won $57K for 2nd place in the Sunday 500. 3rd place in the Sunday 500 this weekend ended up going to Scott96dl and Scott won $37K for his finish. The prize pool wasn’t that big this weekend, but there were a few other tournaments this weekend that kept players occupied.
