Posted at 09:15 2012-10-31 by Mickey Doft

It isn't often you can get six people to agree on anything, but that's exactly what happened at the PokerStars Sunday Million final table this week. A six-way deal saw each player pocket at least $105,000, and Peru's Gerardo "g3r4rd0x" Rodriguez went on to win his first Sunday Million title and more than $108,000.

Joining Rodriguez in the winner's circle Sunday were Chris "Run dat Game" Lovett (Sunday Warm-Up), Flávio "flavioreis88" Reis (Sunday 500), Mat "checktrap11" Cuthbertson (Bigger $162), and Chris "maxxscam" Back (Sunday 2nd Chance).
