December 26, also known as Boxing Day, is traditionally a day spent lounging around eating all the Christmas dinner leftovers, but not if you play professional poker. This year’s Boxing Day saw huge tournaments taking place in the world of online poker, resulting in the distribution of bankroll-boosting prizes.
Juan Dominguez was one of those players who got their hands on a massive payout. The Andorra-based Spaniard came out ahead of a crowd of 57 in the WSOPC Series: $25,500 Sunday Million Super HR.
Only the top six won a slice of the $1,425,000 prize pool, so spare a thought for the seventh. Stephen Chidwick. He burst the bubble and missed a min-cash of $102,281. This amount went to Timothy Adamswho was joined on the rail by Lev “LevMeAlone” Gottlieb and Anatoly Filatov. Those eliminated players saw $136,395 and $181,885 heading to their GGPoker accounts.
“spaise411” of Russia saw their tournament finish in third place, a result worth $242,548. Heads-up opposed Dominguez to the in-form “Jerome001.” Dominguez did the work and got his hands on the first prize of $431,319, leaving the second to take home $323,443.
