PokerStars releases weekly round-up

13 Feb 2013

(PRESS RELEASE) -- weekly round-up – February 13

Sunday Majors

Kyle ‘KJulius10’ Julius missed out on winning his second Sunday Million title by one spot last weekend, as he finished runner-up to ‘parmupill’ from Estonia. However, as part of a three-way deal Julius did manage to get the biggest cut – $199,000 – while ‘parmupill’ pocketed $170,000 for the win. A total of 7,848 players bought into the $215 tourney to create a prize pool of $1,569,600. Read the PokerStars Blog report for more.

In the $215 Sunday Warm-Up, 3,693 players entered to create a prize pool of $738,600. A total of 540 players made the money, but it was ‘Slips713’ from Canada who took the biggest chunk, after coming first for $108,877.08. Again, this was adjusted as part of a deal heads-up with second-placed ‘matt86ck’ from Poland. Check out the full report on the PokerStars Blog.

MTT Sit & Go payout changes

PokerStars has this week made some changes to the payout structure of 90-man and 180-man Sit & Go tournaments, which will ensure that more players reach the money. For 180-man SNGs, 27 people now make the money instead of 18, while in 90-man SNGs, 13 people now make the money instead of 12; this ensures fairer bubble play as there will be an equal number of players on each table. First-place prize money remains the same for both types of Sit & Go, with prizes rebalanced in lower-placed positions.

EPT Deauville

Remi Castaignon became the latest European Poker Tour champion last Saturday, as the Frenchman took the EPT Deauville Main Event title to win €770,000. Castaignon topped a field of 782 to scoop the lion’s share of the €3,753,600 prize pool, while PokerStars qualifier Walid Bou Habib, from Lebanon, finished second to earn €475,000. Check out the PokerStars Blog report for more details.

The €10,300 High Roller event was won by Vojtech Ruzicka from the Czech Republic for €313,000. He finished top of a field of 71 players (85 entries including rebuys), eventually beating Timothy Reilly of the USA heads-up. Read the PokerStars Blog report for more.

EPT London

The next EPT event will take place in London from March 5-16, with 37 events scheduled over 11 days in two different venues. The £5,250 Main Event will take place at the Grosvenor Victoria Casino from March 10-16, along with the £10,300 High Roller (March 14-15) and £10,300 8-Game Championship (March 13-14), while many of the side events will be held at the new ‘PokerStars LIVE’ poker room at the Hippodrome Casino.

LAPT Chile

The LAPT Chile National Poker Championship takes place March 13-17 and is aiming to become the biggest and richest poker festival ever held on Chilean soil. In addition, there is expectation that it may surpass the previous largest LAPT Main Event field of 681, which was set in Colombia in Season 4. This year it’s anticipated that the combined prize pool for all the festival events will break the USD $1 million mark, surpassing any previous prize pools for LAPT or any other live poker event held in the country.

Online satellites to the event are proving popular both online at PokerStars and live at Enjoy’s casinos across the country and there is still time to qualify either live or online. One notable change for LAPT Season 6 Main Events is that there are unlimited re-entries available for the first four levels of play.
