The Sunday Briefing: Max Lykov and Dylan Linde Among Sunday's Winners

Max Lykov

Another Sunday on the virtual felt is in the books as several players enjoyed terrific performances. What did this week's results produce? For starters, a return to the Sunday Million final table for "WallterBish" just two weeks after a runner-up performance. Several Team PokerStars Pros had excellent results, including a victory for Max Lykov. Also emerging with a Sunday takedown was Dylan "ImaLucSac" Linde.

Last week, an incredible feat occurred as "Gorby3975" took down the Sunday Million one week after winning the Sunday Storm. Although that wasn't matched this week, "WallterBish" came pretty darn close. Two weeks after a runner-up showing in the Sunday Million, "WallterBish" commanded the chip lead as this week's final table began. Following a three-handed deal and the subsequent elimination of "ediguadro" in third place, "WallterBish" held the chip lead during heads-up play, with hopes of capturing the title of Sunday Million champion this time around.

Alas, it was not meant to be. After surrendering the chip lead, "WallterBish" moved all in holding {Q-Clubs}{9-Clubs} on a {9-Hearts}{5-Hearts}{2-Hearts} flop. "FairLaw" trailed with {10-Diamonds}{9-Spades}, but the {10-Spades} crashed down on the turn to give "FairLaw" the lead with one card to come. Adding insult to injury, "FairLaw" improved to a full house when the {10-Clubs} fell to lock up the victory.
