PokerStars reached a landmark moment with the crowning of its 200th poker millionaire after a marathon 15-hour tournament in which Panamanian “Xavi666” won the $10 million Guaranteed Sunday Million 11th Anniversary for $1,093,204.

A total of 44,017 unique players totalling 55,835 entries congregated online to challenge for a share of the $11,176,000 prize pool at PokerStars, a company statement confirmed.

The win signifies Xavi666’s biggest poker career win, in which he has been playing on PokerStars for 13 years.

“I still don’t believe it. Finally everything came together,” he said.

In all, 9,206 places were paid in the Sunday Million 11th Anniversary with ‘Mouzen’, from Sweden finishing in second place for a win of $785,999 and ‘TranBrothers’ in third for $565,140.

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
