The Sunday Briefing: Max "$kill Game" Weinberg Among Winners on Double Vision Sunday

Max Weinberg

For the third time, PokerStars offered several of the Sunday Majors twice as part of its Double Vision Sunday promotion. The result? Eight players earned six-figure scores, led by the $219,425.24 that "Akademnuk" earned for winning the Sunday Million. Joao "Joao M." Marcelo Andrade, Kevin "flopped6810" Sharp, and Max "$kill Game" Weinberg were among the other six-figure tournament winners yesterday. Also victorious on Sunday were Alexander "RedIceRap" Gerlach and Pat "obiedman" O'Brien.

$200+$158,027$1,605,400

Felipe "mojave14" Ramos (11th - $8,588.89) and Adam "Roothlus" Levy (27th - $3,531.88) made deep runs in the Sunday Million, each making the final three tables. A heads-up deal at the end guaranteed each player about $200,000 with $20,000 still left to play for. "Akademnuk" and "Kabira" didn't waste much time, getting the chips into the middle in a standard race. "Kabira," the shorter stack, looked to hold with {5-Spades}{5-Clubs} against the {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} of "Akademnuk," but the board ran out {A-Spades}{2-Spades}{2-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} to lock up the victory for "Akademnuk."
