A Grand Slam Sunday

04:41 Europe/Stockholm October 23, 2012 by

GSOP 9Sunday would be a very big day at bwin Poker, with the Grand Slam Final of GSOP 9 slated to wrap up the series and award some monster paydays to top finishers.

The $5,000 Grand Slam Final would be the headliner but the $525 Grand Slam Final wasn't too shabby either, with plenty of players battling it out in both trying to nail down a huge Sunday score.

The $525 Grand Slam Final Mini sported a $200K guarantee but that was smashed with a big field of 681 players taking a seat for a prizepool of $340,500.

JohnDriscoll would take top honors there ($63,479), with pokerdings in second ($44,101), and _ICYUNVME_ in third ($31,53).

Below are the top ten finishers in the GSOP Grand Slam Mini:

1. JohnDriscoll - $63,479
2. pokerdings - $44,101
3. _ICYUNVME_ - $31,573
4. fettissick - $23,387
5. raidalot2 - $17,290
6. icenigel - $12,830
7. Claxton123 - $10,357
8. Mr.Money xxx - $8,085
9. OGbeatnick - $6,298
10. InitechWins - $4,945


That'd leave just the $5,000 Grand Slam Final to decide, which drew a whopping 183 entries for a prizepool of nearly $900,000!

Players slugged it out for a top prize of just over $200,000, with the pressure mounting as they got closer and closer to the final table.

23905806 would emerge the big winner of the day, pocketing $203,920 when he defeated 123jalla in heads-up play (who collected a tidy $140,643 for second). All three top finishers ended up at least $100K richer, as Dsavo in third cashed for $100,460 himself!

1. 23905806 - $203,929
2. 123jalla - $140,643
3. Dsavo - $100,460
4. ediguadro16 - $74,410
