The Sunday Briefing: "PreshaDroppa" Takes Sunday's Top Score

Sunday Briefing

The Sunday Majors schedule was once again different than usual as the PokerStars SCOOP's two Sunday events are due to finish Monday afternoon. Still, three players managed to take home massive six-figure paydays.

The Full Tilt $1 Million Guarantee saw a skilled group competing for the top prize as online standouts Russell "rdcrsn" Carson, Laurence "whatariver1" Houghton, and the mysterious German "PreshaDroppa" made it to the final three. In the end, it was PreshaDroppa earning the top prize of $236,339.68. Other Sunday victors include Aussies Ben "delaney_kid" Delaney and Ben "bennybunny18" Richardson.
