Uruguay’s Fabricio “DrMiKee” Gonzalez Wins Sunday Special

On Sunday, the $215 buy-in Sunday Special saw 311 players rebuy 91 times. This scenario meant the top 45 finishers would get a piece of the $100,000 prize pool.

Among those to cash the tournament, which was both streamed and live reported on PokerNews, were –

  • “pokerdave128” (44th - $600)
  • “mikinads” (36th - $650)
  • “IlovePickles” (27th - $750)

After “algsxr” bowed out in third place for $11,000, the title came down to Canada’s “alexkoab05” and Uruguay’s Fabricio “DrMiKee” Gonzalez.

Nearly nine hours of play later, the final hand of the tournament went down.

It took place in Level 40 (175,000/350,000/43,750) when “alexkoab05” moved all-in holding the A♥6♠. Gonzalez called after looking down at the J♥J♣.

The 7♥Q♥10♠ turn gave “alexkoab05” backdoor options, and the 8♣-turn delivered them a gutshot straight draw.

Unfortunately for them, the 2♥ river was a brick and Gonzalez hung on to claim victory.
