On New Year’s Eve, poker players spent their free time not preparing for the holiday, but playing poker. On Sunday, December 31, Sunday THREE Million ended with an extended warranty at PokerStars. The guarantee of $3,000,000 was done and a prize fund of $3,508,000 was formed. This was made by 17,543 entries for $215 and everyone wanted to win a pleasant New Year prize.

The winner of Sunday THREE Million was a Greek player. He is a low-limit regular and $375,000 was an excellent present to his bankroll. Before this tournament, his biggest victory was a triumph at The Big and a win of $17,000. This is a good move from Pokerstars. It was definitely worth participating in such tournament.

In 2019, a large number of famous poker players left the PokerStars team, and this year begins with losses for PokerStars. On January 2, American poker player Jason Somerville announced that he leaves the team of PokerStars’ ambassadors. Jason told about it in a video message on his Twitter account.

Throughout his career, Jason Somerville has earned over $3,641,000 in live tournaments. His best result was 4th place in Super High Roller 2014 with a buy-in of $100,000 in Las Vegas. Then Jason earned $1,327,300 in prize money. It seems that PokerStars doesn´t aim to keep poker players. Now there are only five loyal players there: Chris Moneymaker, Ben Spragg, Fintan Hand, Felix Schneiders, and Lex Veldhuis. The last one, who leaves the room, turns off the light, please.
