The first Sunday Million event at PokerStars for $109 collected 15 550 entries and total prize pool reached the mark of $1 550 000. The winner was supposed to get about $140 000 which is a good amount for the bankroll. The Ukrainian poker player under the nickname “555AU” was able to achieve such result and won Sunday Million. The guy beat Brazilian poker player under the nickname “kamarao-vix” in heads-up and after it the runner-up of this event got $ 99,000 for the second place.
The player “555AU” hid his statistics at sharkscope website, that’s why we cannot give an exact amount of his winnings at PokerStars.
One thing is for sure: the guy significantly increased his bankroll by investing $109 and won $139,000.
