Final Table of the Sunday Million - 7/22/08

It took nearly 10 hours of online poker play, the final table was set and actually Jimboski30 had the chip lead going into this final table:

5. tonijeromi (Germany)
6. dapoopta (United States)
7. Jimboski30 (Canada)
8. gio_piso (Ireland)

Quick Eliminations

Eliminations happened quickly in this week’s Sunday Million as “DonC33″ and “gio_piso” were knocked out within the first four hands of the final table. Shortly afterwards, our chip leader Jimboski30 was knocked out in 7th place but took home a respectable $29,295 in prize money.

As the big blinds were up to $1 Million dapoopta went all-in with pocket deuces against eventual winner avkid86 who had As-10h in his pocket. The flop came with an Ah and that was all for dapoopta.

Tonijeromi’s back for another Sunday Million

Tonijeromi was no stranger to the final table at the Sunday Million as he had been there once before. This time however, Tonijeromi was knocked out quicker than last time as he shoved all-in pre-flop with Ks-10s against Gambooooool’s pocket threes. The flop came Jh-3h-Qd, and the river of Jc gave Gambooooool a full-house.
