We Told You Poker Is a Fad

Pokerstars_1Proving that poker is a fad, has been since 1829 and will be for as long as the melting polar ice caps allow, 10,508 players competed yesterday in PokerStars.com‘s one-year anniversary Sunday Million tournament, making it the largest real money poker tournament ever held, online or otherwise.

While Poker Stars bumped the guaranteed prize pool up to $1.5 million for the celebration, the massive field pushed the purse above the $2 million mark, with a first place cash locked at $271,106.40. A deal split when they were down to five though, gave the eventual winner, Zeddor, a $131,972 take away while runner-up, nickym998, cashed $160,960 thanks to being the chipleader at the chop.
