“Succeeed“ Miegel ships the Sunday High Roller

Behind the alias is young German player Jakob Miegel and last night he added a major title to his impressive results.
82 top players signed up for the $1,050 Sunday High Roller and smashed the $50,000 guarantee by more than 60%! In the end there was $82,000 in the prize pool and a whopping $25,000 up top.
Many big names made the final table such as online legend Artem “veeea” Vezhenkov, Sam “SamSquid” Grafton and Rodrigo “seijistar” Seiji.
The heads-up was a neighbour duel between Succeeed, who is residing in Austria and Suisse player “thrillhOuse”.
Succeeed lived up to his name and succeeded in the end to add a whopping $14,671.87 in bounties on top of the $9,675.72 first prize.

Only five places were paid with a not at all mini min-cash of $20,217.52, Bubble boy became no one else but high roller crusher Christoph “26071985” Vogelsang
Biggest names among the final five were Andrey “Kot_Spartac” Kotelnikov and Rodrigo “SELOUAN1991” Selouan, but they busted in 4th and 5th place.
Heads-up for the prestigious title surprisingly were two unknown players with Baca4b from Poland and AcidVaule. The former came out on top to secure a career-high $85,009.41 score.
Brazilian Domination in the MicroMillions Main Event
The highlight of the PokerStars Sunday Grind was the MicroMillions Main Event, where you had the unique chance to play for a small buy-in of only $22 for a huge $500,000 guarantee.

The final table was total Brazilian Domination as 6 out of 9 players came from Brazil. That’s why it was no surprise that one of them ended up winning the whole thing.
