On July 17, 2011 at 18:30, Kevin Steele logged onto PokerStars and he registered for the $215 Sunday Million. Almost twelve hours later he had outlasted 6,181 opponents to scoop a bankroll-boosting $128,792.58. You may think “so what” because somebody wins the Sunday Million every week but download PokerStars and take look at who won this week's tournament. Yes you have guess it, Kevin “kevsteele” Steele!
Just four months after striking a five-handed deal then going on to finish first, kevsteele has won the Sunday Million again! This time he outlasted 6,966 opponents to help himself to $168,838.99 after the final four players agreed to a deal and then went on to finish first!
Winning the PokerStars Sunday Million twice in relatively quick succession is an amazing achievement but it is made even better by the fact Mr Steele is not a high volume player like most Multi Table Tournament grinders, in fact he is anything but a high volume player. According to Official Poker Rankings, kevsteele has only ever played 334 tournaments on PokerStars and most of those were low buy-in tournaments, with his favourite being the $15 180-man MTTSNG that are very popular on the World's largest online poker site.
Due to his low volume and these two epic wins, kevsteele has a Return On investment (ROI) of 2,557% which is unbelievable! But it does go to show that anyone can and does win the Sunday Million not just the big name pros and mass multitablers.
