The most important tournament of the week for PokerStars members is the Sunday Millions, but there is an increasing interest for the Super Tuesday event. As the number of people who buy in regularly is on the rise, so are the prizes and this week it was the time for a player from Costa Rica to emerge victorious. He had to overcome a field of 564 players, including some professionals and players who made a deep run in other prestigious tournaments hosted by the aforementioned poker company.
One of them is Peter “twirlpro” Turmezy, a fast rising star and PokerStars and the one who won more than $200,000 last weekend in the Sunday Million. Once again he made a deep run but was stopped in his tracks before collecting a sizable amount and had to settle for the 71st place. The remaining players took their time and the tournament lasted four more hours, with action being taken to the next level when final table started. The winner, whose profile is available at http://www.pocketfives.com/profiles/big-huni/ was also among the active players who caused a string of eliminations.
At this stage it was known that the winner would win slightly above $100,000, an amount that was definitely worth fighting for almost 10 hours. When the final table was set, Chris “Big Huni” Hunichen had the second deep stack, behind the Mexican player who goes by the name of Joe “floes” Serock. The two of them were favorites to win the event, but only Chris was still in the game when three handed play began. Furthermore, he had so many chips accumulated at this point, that his rivals had virtually no chance of fighting their way back.
The player from Costa Rica playing overly aggressive as soon as the final table commenced and caused two elimination in a row. With five players left in the race, most of them were secretly hoping for Hunichen to do all the hard work and eliminate their rivals, which explains how it was possible for him to consolidate his chip leading position. When heads-up began he had 10 times more chips than “Nur1ck” from Australia, but his opponent didn’t falter. Eventually the difference in chips couldn’t be undone and the two players took a leap of faith with a mediocre hand and Chris got lucky on the turn.
