The Sunday Briefing: "LOL_FAILURE" Succeeds In Winning The PokerStars Sunday Million

The Sunday Briefing: "LOL_FAILURE" Succeeds In Winning The PokerStars Sunday Million 0001

The PokerStars Sunday Million and Full Tilt $750,000 Guarantee both returned this week after a one-week hiatus as each site ran satellites to the World Series of Poker Main Event. Both failed to surpass their guaranteed prize pools this week, however, resulting in huge overlays for the field. On PokerStars, "LOL_FAILURE" topped the field in the Sunday Million en route to a $228,150 score. Over on Full Tilt, "zombiebird" took down the $750,000 Gurantee for a $132,787.50 pay day.
