Kade Banks Big Sunday Million Win
Not only has Canadian Poker-pro Vanessa Kade managed to get her own back by signing with PokerStars following her misogyny fuelled fall-out with Dan Bilzerian and GGPoker, but she’s just sweetened the victory by winning the Sunday Million 15th Anniversary – along with the sweltering $1,514,920) in 1st place prize money.
Vanessa “Niffler” Kade on Sunday stuck it to “Talibenes” in a heads-up contest of note, resulting in her walking away with the phenomenal mentioned paycheque, and her opponent with not-too-shabby second place earnings to the tune of $1,035,358.
PokerStars, too, has a lot to be proud about, what with a field of nearly 70,000 entries having generated mammoth $13,975,200 in prize money for the largest biggest Sunday Million Anniversary event ever.
Kade’s Elimination Rampage
By the time the final day’s action had commenced, only 65 hopefuls remained in the running for the money, with each guaranteed of around $10,757 in prize money at the very least.
Starting of the day of final play in the chip-lead had been “Transylvanian” from Romania, while Kade very near the top of the pack also in 13th place.
By the time only three hours of the heated action had passed, it would be “Talibenes” getting rid of a severely short-stacked “VladHunter21” in 10th place finish and $49,300 in the bank. Once the action had progressed to the final table, it had been “ikkedus” ruling the chip-lead roost, with Kade by then positioned in 7th. “ikkedus” would however lose the lead to “Talibenes” just as soon as what the first elimination had taken place.
Swift And Painless Final Push
Next out, in 9th place, was eliminated Russian contender “Vvlankov”, with their hand nowhere near the quality of Norway’s “malinga”. And hot on the Russian’s heels out the door had been “kefirchik106”, who next got eliminated in 8th place.
Leaving the proceedings in 7th place would be initial chip-leader “ikkedus”, who after doubling a couple of players found themselves seriously short on firing power before bowing out for $154,416 in 7th place.
It was at this point that Kade had started to pick up speed, leading her into 2nd position following an ace-queen thumping of “malinga’s” ace-seven.
The Canadian queen of Poker then swiftly proceeded to eliminate the final three players remaining in contention for the big money after three of the final four had attempted unsuccessfully to reach a deal.
By the time the point of heads-up play had been reached, there would be only two more hands played, with the Canadian holding a 7:1 chip advantage over her rival.
