The Sunday Briefing: Ainsworth Comes Close, Grippo Victorious in Brawl, and More

The Sunday Briefing: Ainsworth Comes Close, Grippo Victorious in Brawl, and More 0001

As always, Sunday was jam packed with big online events. The top prize this week went to "wasaberga," who took home a whopping $211,180.98 for conquering the PokerStars Sunday Million and a field of 8,653. Team PokerStars Pro Jude "j.thaddeus" Ainsworth almost added another online title to his collection, but ended up finishing in third place. Shane "shaniac" Schleger also made the final table.

Over on Full Tilt Poker, Nick "Grippolio" Grippo headlined the major winners with a victory in the Sunday Brawl for $115,750.60. He beat a final table that included recent FTOPS champion T.K. "timkrank" Miles. The largest score on the site went to "pytcheye1111," who walked away with a nice $127,056.08 after a three-way deal was made in the $750,000 Guarantee.
