by Poker Team

One of the most popular online poker events each week, the PokerStars Sunday Million, saw a final table heads-up match between PokerStars player “jotaele1” and “JHBrenes“. These two battled out a fierce competition from almost 7,000 players that built up a prize pool of $1,398,600.The final table saw 9 players battling it out, but joetaele1 (from Spain) and JHBrenes (from Costa Rica) eliminated the field and met each other head on with joetaele1 commanding a 38.7 Million chip to 31.1 Million chip lead over JHBrenes.

Neither of the players were able to pair their cards and joetaele1′s Ace/kicker played as he took home the top prize of $197,202.60. JHBrenes was still able to corral a nice $99,300.60 for his second place finish. What is impressive about the win from jotaele1 is that in the past month, he has not placed in the money in any tournament he has played in.
