Will Last Sunday's Million Set The 2009 Pace?

PokerStars regular Sunday Million tourney pulled in a gratifyingly large
entry field

Discounting the media doom and gloom over economic prospects for 2009, last
weekend's Poker Stars.com regular Sunday Million tournament set a cracking
pace for the year ahead with a turnout of 8 504 players.

The $1.5 million guarantee on the prize pool was easily met and overtaken,
offering players the chance to win a piece of $1 700 800, a bonanza that
enabled 1 260 players to cash.

The finish was influenced by a three way chop between stoledog, Prom Queens
and USA_20080920 that left stoledog the top dog with $150 793 and change.
This doughty online player went on to win the final game after a heads up
with USA_20080920 gave him the additional $30 000 and a total take-home of
$180 793.55.

His opponent collected a paycheck for $108 182.93 for his second placing,
with the six figure money extending to Prom Queens in third place, who was
paid out $150 000.
