New Zealand’s “TheMufinMan” Wins Sunday Special

On Sunday, the latest $215 buy-in 888Millions Sunday Special was held. The tournament was live reported by PokerNews. It saw 364 players rebuy 122 times, which meant a $100,000 prize pool was reserved for the top 54 finishers.

Among those to cash after Russia’s “Veisi” bubbled in 55th place were –

  • “bustingyou” (48th - $500)
  • “kiskutya23” (42nd - $550)
  • “liquidpoker1” (29th - $600)
  • “Namlleh” (25th - $700)
  • “PerfectShade” (18th - $900)
  • “DDMMFA” (13th - $1,100)
  • “AsaNisse4” (10th - $1,300)

At the final table, with five players remaining, it was Level 36 (80,000/160,000/20,000). “Jobbi123” moved all in for a little less than 1.2 million. “TheMufinMan” shoved over the top from the small blind.

“TheMufinMan”: A♣Q♠

“Jobbi123”: Q♦9♦

“Jobbi123” was looking to get lucky but that didn’t happen. The board ran out a dry 4♠7♥2♣K♥3♥. “Jobbi123” had to settle for fifth place and $5,600 in prize money.

At that point, the final four players struck a deal before playing it out for the title and $2,000. Aaron “YoureMagical” Gustavson locked up the most money at the deal. But he was the first of the quartet to fall.

“IamBudha” followed him out the door in third place. That set up a heads-up match between “mieux90” and New Zealand’s “TheMufinMan”.

The latter held a nearly 2:1 chip lead and didn’t take long to close things out.

888MIllions “TheMufinMan” won the title, adding $2,000 to the $12,009

The final hand of the tournament took place in Level 39 (150,000/300,000/37,500). “TheMufinMan” shoved holding the A♥4♦ and “mieux90” called off with the Q♥J♥.

The 4♣9♦K♣ flop gave “mieux90” a gutshot straight draw. But that was all the help they’d get as neither the 5♦ turn nor 8♦ river changed a thing.

With that, “mieux90” finished in second place for $12,618. “TheMufinMan” won the title, adding $2,000 to the $12,009 he secured in the deal for a total payday of $14,009.

Kevin “kevlar1991” Frame Wins High Roller for $23K

At the end of September, the 29th to be exact, the $530 buy-in High Roller attracted 136 players who rebought 28 times. The 164-entry field resulted in a $100,000 prize pool that was paid out to the top 18 finishers. Also competing were ”AUTISPOSTI”, 888poker Ambassador Dominik “888Dominik” Nitsche, and bubble boy “Ove_Pipcorn”. They all failed to cash

Among those to cash but fall short of the final table were “ole_schemion” (17th - $2,050), “wacko90” (13th - $2,150), and “TKaliber” (10th - $2,250).

The title came down to a pair of UK players. After seven and a half hours of play, it was Scotland’s Kevin “kevlar1991” Frame besting his “Sue.1979”.

He took home the title and $23,000 first-place prize.

It was the best result of his poker career. The win was made all the sweeter given the fact he qualified his way in via a $16.50 satellite. All told, Frame has more than $700,000 in online tournament earnings and $50,000 in the live realm.

"Buzzing and relieved," Frame told PokerNews after the win. "I was the runaway chip leader from a long way out then lost a few to end up short stack three-handed. So, it felt good to claw it back and get over the finish line."

While it was a big cash, it wasn’t the largest of the 888Millions Superstorm. That honour currently belongs to United Arab Emirates' "nagidh". He won the 888Millions High Roller for $25,000 earlier in the series.
