The Sunday Briefing: "redsfan9" Claims Top Prize; Nicolas Chouity Wins One Also

The Sunday Briefing: "redsfan9" Claims Top Prize; Nicolas Chouity Wins One Also 0001

Once again, many of the Sunday Majors failed to hit their guarantees, resulting in overlays for the field. Still, four players emerged from the virtual felt with six-figure scores. The Pokerstars Sunday Million saw "redsfan9" outlast the field of 7,309 and win $214,804.12 for the victory. Meanwhile, "SEDOS" was the sole survivor in the Full Tilt $750,000 Guarantee for $132,787.50. Also notching victories on Sunday were EPT Grand Final winner Nicolas “niccc” Chouity and John "BlackFours" May.
