June 23 PokerStars Sunday Majors Results


by Jennifer Newell

As the 100 Billionth Hand promotion begins to wind down at PokerStars, one of the perks was a big Zoom $100 tournament that replaced the weekly Bigger $109. For the same buy-in, there was a $1 million guarantee and fast-fold poker in lieu of the regular fare. That brought in enough players to surpass the guarantee and create a substantial prize pool.

All of the other PokerStars Sunday majors were the same as usual, only with fewer players than the week before. As mentioned previously, with many players in Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker, the general numbers are lower and will continue to be for the next few weeks as live poker is the focus of the summer. While all but one of the guarantees were still bounced out of the water because of solid prize pools, the Women's Sunday did take a hit and had to implement its guarantee and grant an overlay in its tournament.

We've listed the major Sunday tournaments on PokerStars here. Each have a $150K guarantee or higher, and we included the Women's Sunday because of its unique place in the Sunday lineup. (Asterisks indicate players who agreed to official prize money chops at the final table.)
