The Sunday Briefing: Gerardo "g3r4rd0x" Rodriguez Wins PokerStars Sunday Million

Sunday Briefing

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).
