By now you’ll know the answer to this new bit of online poker trivia. It’s the one that asks: What is the biggest overlay in the history of online poker?
Yep. You got it. That’s right. It was us.
Back in February we staged the Sunday Million Anniversary edition. It had a $10 million guarantee and $1 million for first place.
It played out, and we paid out.
And the overlay? In the region of $1.2 million.
Put it down to our obsession with setting new records.
But overlays are on us. Whether they happen or not, they don’t change the fact that it’s life changing money to the eventual winner.
In this case Hulk9950, who banked $960,000 on the day and likely didn’t give two hoots about the white knuckles in the accounts department.
The same will apply to the winner of the Sunday Million Anniversary Take 2.
It’s our second attempt to mark the occasion of the Sunday Million’s 12th birthday, a do-over, taking place on Sunday April 22, 2018.
It will look almost identical. Except, we hope, for the overlay.
Sunday Million Take 2

So, while we worry about the guarantee. You think about getting a seat and a shot at what will once more be life changing money.
