The Sunday Briefing: Week Off For PokerStars Sunday Million and Full Tilt $750,000 Guarantee

The Sunday Briefing: Week Off For PokerStars Sunday Million and Full Tilt $750,000 Guarantee 0001

This Sunday had a different look to it as PokerStars and Full Tilt ran satellites to the World Series of Poker Main Event rather than running their biggest Sunday tournaments. Thus, the PokerStars Sunday Million and Full Tilt $750,000 Guarantee had the week off. Still, many of the other Sunday Majors ran and produced big winners. The lone six-figure score, $107,888.59, went to "SiiliSuhonen" for finishing in second place after a deal was made in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up. Securing the victory was "needdollarz" for $98,320.19.

Cliff "JohnnyBax" Josephy posted a solid showing on Sunday as well. He won the Full Tilt Sunday Brawl for $78,294.24 and also added a seventh-place finish in the PokerStars $215+R NL Hold'em for $6,552.
