“Fr0mNL” Turns $50 Into $81,560 in the PokerStars 50/50 Series Sunday Million

The PokerStars 50/50 Series kicked off on January 30 and has already paid out some impressive prizes despite the low buy-ins of its events. Thirteen of the scheduled 50 tournaments have crowned their champions, including “Fr0mNL,” who saw their $50 investment swell to a most impressive $81,560.

Fr0mNL was one of 18,589 players who bought into the third event of the 50/50 Series, the Half Price Sunday Million. Unsurprisingly, the tournament overlaid to the tune of $155,130 because of the ambitious $1 million guarantee, not that those who finished in the money places cared because it meant they enjoyed even more value.

Some 3,329 places were paid, each receiving at least $110.40 for their efforts. However, those who navigated their way to the nine-handed final table padded their bankrolls with no less than $7,069.

“Sury8E” of Mexico was the first finalist to fall by the wayside; they collected the aforementioned $7,069. “G_haeffner,” one of five Brazilians to reach the final table, was the next casualty. Their eighth-place finish came with $9,596, the last price not to weigh five figures.

Seventh-place and $13,028 went to “CannaGrower1” of Brazil before “cohen8” of Switzerland, and “zum-zum077” of Russia bowed out and collected $17,687 and $24,011, respectively. Remember that these prizes were awarded in a tournament costing only $50 to enter!

Three Brazilians fell consecutively to leave only the champion with chips in front of them. “oll0dun” busted in fourth for $32,597, “andmatos97” reeled in $44,253 for their third-place finish, which left Fr0mNL to defeat “zeeh_pb” heads-up. The runner-up banked $60,077 while the Half Price Sunday Million champion padded their bankroll with $81,560.
