The month of April was full of excitement for the women of PokerStars, with everything from our ever-growing lineup of online tournament offerings to the live events like EPT Berlin and the upcoming EPT Monte Carlo Grand Final. And it all provides the setup for May, when players converge on Monaco for the most exciting live tournament series of the year.
On the PokerStars tables
Speaking of setups, the PokerStars Sickest Setup, the contest provided players the opportunity to show off where their magic happens on the virtual tables. Team Online’s Adrienne “talonchick” Rowsome talked about her recent upgrade and showed pictures of her online poker setup, complete with cameos from Gibson the cat.
And when the winners were announced, Katie “hotjenny314″ Dozier took one of the top prizes of 50,000 FPPs for her setup overlooking the ocean in Mexico. Her dog, Wilbur, made a cameo as well.
It was from that lovely locale that Dozier brought us the monthly addition of the “Anatomy of a Sunday Grind,”, this one featuring the always-painful Internet disconnection problem.
The new lineup at PokerStars has given players like Adrienne and Katie even more ladies-only tournament options every day, as the $ 8.80 NLHE Women’s Nightly has been added to the already popular $ 5.50 NLHE 6-Max Women’s Daily. The Women’s Tuesday offers an $ 11 NLHE 6-Max once per week, and there are two Pot Limit Omaha tournaments in the mix, a $ 5.50 buy-in PLO on Thursdays and $ 1.10 on Sundays. The ever-expanding schedule is listed on our tournament page.
And we can’t forget the PokerStars Women’s Club! More new players are joining the tables every day because of the popularity of the opportunity to win cash and prizes through the Club. More information is on our Women’s Club home page.
There’s no denying that the Women’s Sunday is one of our main online attractions. The $ 55 buy-in NLHE tournament offers a $ 10K guarantee each weekend, not to mention $ 50 Team Pro bounties.
And among our winners this month was Jacqueline “pkrbadgirl” Garvie, who never gave up and finally claimed her first Women’s Sunday victory. Let’s look at all of the results for April:
Prize pool: $ 14,700
Winner: kapilence (Serbia) – $ 2,844.45
Prize pool: $ 13,450
Winner: heralove (Norway) – $ 2,602.69
Prize pool: $ 12,950
Winner: OlimpiadAA (Russia) – $ 2,505.94
Prize pool: $ 13,550
Winner: pkrbadgirl (UK) – $ 2,622.04
Getting to know you/us
As we mentioned pkrbadgirl above, we try to get to know our regular PS Women players by talking to more of them each month. It gives some insight into the players at your tables, what makes them play the way they do, and why the women-only games are so enjoyable.
This month, Esther “Roxieforu05″ Maludzinski talked to us about her recent recharge. Lidija “lulu.pk70″ Nikodinovic discussed being a mother and poker player, doing well enough to add a Sunday Storm final table to her many accomplishments. And Lydia “domilid” Cugudda shared her best online poker tips and talked about taking second place to Team PokerStars Pro Jake Cody at the UKIPT Series in London.
PokerStars.TV host Sarah Grant is always interviewing players about their experiences at stops on the European Poker Tour, but in April, we asked her to share some of her thoughts about visiting Berlin. As it turned out, she found much more than history, as the lessons in it were just as important.
Meanwhile, we got some insight into the off-table life of Team Pro Vanessa Selbst. She recently embarked on a road trip across America with fiancée Miranda and their two dogs (embarked – get it?), and she documented some of the trip for us.
The members of PS Women are often outspoken about things that are important to them, and this month we heard from two of our pro players.
Team SportStar Fatima Moreira de Melo conveyed some thoughts about competitive women and how that plays a role in bringing more women into poker. She also wonders why competition among men is encouraged, but women who compete are being… well… not nice.
Team Pro Celina Lin is a big proponent of satellites, mainly those awarding seats into live tournaments that give her the opportunity to play more often and spend less on buy-ins. Her tips on playing satellites aren’t to be missed.
About those live tournaments…
Ahhh, yes, the EPT Berlin! We certainly want to congratulate Kathrine Weir of the United States, who emerged victorious from the field of 39 players in the €330 Women’s Event to take home the EPT trophy and €4,200 in cash.
With the Grand Final quickly approaching in Monte Carlo, we offered some opportunities for players to win PS Women Live prize packages worth €2,300. With satellites every day for only a few Euros, many women competed for the Sunday qualifiers. In April, we had several winners who will hopefully be on their way to beautiful Monaco this week for their chance to compete in the live Women’s Event. There’s still one more chance to get in on the action this weekend!
And for a little extra Monte Carlo inspiration, Jen Shahade shared her memories of the trip she took to the EPT in Monaco last year. She also shared some tips for those traveling to the Riviera this year, as well as this photo that is the epitome of inspiration.
Stay tuned in May for another exciting month on the virtual and live tables. We’ll have results of the EPT Monte Carlo events, as well as features on players like Leo Margets and PokerStars.TV host Sarah Grant.
After the weekend of December 18th in which records ended up broken, players won millions, and PokerStars celebrated its 10th anniversary, there was no way–zero, nada, zilch–this past weekend was going to compete. Add to the fact this was a holiday weekend, and it was certain it was going to be a light day.
But you know what? The Sunday MIllion covered the $ 1 million guarantee with ease. So did the Sunday Warm-Up. No matter what weekend it is, no matter how soon after a major promotion the Sunday majors hit, it’s almost always a lock that people are going to have bankroll-changing weekends on PokerStars.
Witness Turkey’s “||Burkeeee!,” the winner of the December 25th Sunday Million. After cutting a deal heads-up, ||Burkeeee! banked nearly $ 200,000 this weekend. Our hard core reporter David Aydt has the full story right here: Turkey’s ||Burkeeee! wins final Sunday Million of 2011.
Meanwhile, the rest of the weekend majors were rocking and rolling, as well. Check out the 12-25-11 Sunday majors results link for all you need to know about this week’ big winners.
Now it’s time to look to 2012. Strap in, folks, because it cold be a big one.
Things are about to get silly at PokerStars. While we know there is always something going on in the promotions department, it rarely affects these Sunday majors reports. That will change next week when then PokerStars Double Vision promotion runs not one, but two Sunday Warm-Ups and Sunday Millions.
So, let’s take this moment to relish a weekend in which everything was as normal as people winning hundreds of thousands of dollars can be.
For instance, Kristin Bihr has the story of LevotonKala’s making a huge comeback in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up for a $ 110,000 payday.
Elsewhere, Jen Newell was keeping tabs on the PokerStars Sunday Million where StuU_0905 beat out nearly 6,500 players for a $ 148,164 first prize.
For a complete look at the big winners from this weekend, check out the 10-9-11.
Remember…stay tuned for next week when, for once, your double vision could be very profitable!
Well, it appears nobody minds the new time slots for the PokerStars Sunday majors too much. This weekend saw big crowds come out for the big Sunday events.
Nearly 7,000 people showed up for this weekend’s Sunday Million. With a prize pool worth $ 1,377,800 and 900 folks getting paid, Seraph14′s victory for $ 144,000 was more than a little angelic. Jen Newell has the story in “Success for Seraph14 of Slovakia with Sunday Million win.”
6-12-11 Sunday Million final table
In other news, the Sunday Warm-Up drew 3,236 people this week. After cutting a four-way deal, pastika picked up $ 86,627 for the first place finish. David Aydt has the full story in “Sunday Warm-up: pastika cooks the competition in victory.”
Here are the cash-outs of the Team Titan Pro in the WSOP 2011 and side events in Las Vegas.

12-Jun-2011 $ 1,000 No Limit Hold’em – 42nd World Series of Poker (WSOP) 2011, Las Vegas 146th – $ 2,628
Yesterday, the two french players from the Team Titan and Marvin Rettenmaier from Germany participated to the day 1 of the Event #43 – 1 500 $ NLH with unfortunately no success.
It’s Monday morning, so that must mean it’s time to check in with the big poker news from the weekend. As always, there’s nothing bigger in weekly tournament poker than the PokerStars Sunday Million.
As our Jen Newell reported, the Sunday Million drew 6,475 players this weekend. The $ 1,295,000 prize pool ended up going to the top 990 players. When it was all said and done, a deal had chopped up the lion’s share of the money. The bulk of it went to guaicuru 07. Read all about it in Newel”s report: Guaicuru 07 of Brazil Bests the April 17 Sunday Million Field for $ 121,830.20
4-17-11 Sunday Million final table
Newell had double duty this weekend and was also on for the Sunday Warm-Up. She posted this report on the action: Campeao200 Climbs to Victory in 4/17/11 Sunday Warm-Up.

Good luck in the coming week.
It’s a real pleasure to have April Fools’ Day behind us. People just don’t take anything on the internet seriously in the hours leading up to that day. And, frankly, the kinds of things that tend to appear on this blog can sometimes seem rather unbelievable. More than 150,000 people in a poker tournament? An unnamed Swedish kid who rocked the poker world? Free front row tickets for you and all your friends to the sporting event of your choice? Hogwash, normally, but not on this blog.
Now that’s Friday is behind us, we can tell you that Isildur1 lost a little bit of money in the most recent SuperStar Showdown, MatchBalla took down this weekend’s Sunday Warm-Up and Rens02 went on a rally to win this weekend’s Sunday Million.
See, isn’t it nice to be able to believe all of that without wondering whether we’re full of it? (Which, by the way, we sort of are, but we still tell the truth here as much as possible.)
To see all the big winners from the weekend, here’s the 4-3-11 PokerStars Sunday tournament results. Truth.
Stay tuned this week for the best in live reporting from EPT Berlin and NAPT Mohegan Sun.
Strap in, folks. This sucker is a fast-moving vehicle. There’s so much happening around the land of the PokerStars Blog, we’ve hired an extra 100 monkeys to man the keyboards this week (and, darn it, one of them is going to turn out Hamlet before summer, I just know it).
If you’re just getting started for the week, here’s a few important things you should know about:
As if that wasn’t enough to keep the monkey fingers typing, PokerStars put up another big weekend of tournament results, including the 3-20-11 Sunday Warm-Up and 3-20-11 Sunday Million. The latter resulted in six-way final table chop and Kalmuka picking up $ 234,574 for first place.
3-20-11 Sunday Million final table
For a complete rundown of the weekend’s biggest final tables, see our 3-20-11 PokerStars final table results page.
Best of luck to all in the coming week. Oh, and if you have any bored monkeys, we have a couple more keyboard that need manning monkey-ing. Send’em on over. We have bananas!
