The Sunday Briefing: Records Break With Almost 20,000 Playing the PokerStars Sunday Million

Playing to win was the theme on this record-breaking Sunday, which closed out the month. Prize pools were increased across the virtual felt as each of the major online poker sites ran special promotions. PokerStars offered a Sunday Million Special Edition tournament, upping its guarantee to $2,000,000. That amount was nearly doubled as a field of 19,377 created a prize pool of $3,875,400, both new Sunday Million records. "OX45AL" claimed the whopping $550,011.29 top prize outright, also a new Sunday Million record.

Ultimate Bet’s Online Championship 4 concluded with a $1,000 + $50 No Limit Hold’em Championship event. Dave “DOUBLEDAVE22” D’Alesandro emerged victorious, pocketing $279,044.50 for his outright victory.

As part of Full Tilt’s $25 Million Double Guarantees Week, the $750,000 Guarantee played as $1.5 Million Guarantee. "BankOfSweden" took it down, winning $212,044.60 per a heads up deal, the only deal struck across all of the Sunday Majors this weekend.
