In 2020, Brazil’s Alex “AAAArthur” Brito came out on top for $1.1 million after a four-way deal.

The tournament brought in 60,897 players and 93,015 total entries. That accounted for a final prize pool of $18.6 million – the biggest Sunday Million ever.

Will the 2021 version eclipse that total? That remains to be seen but some major cash should again be on the line.
