The Sunday Briefing: "Diogene" Earns Top Sunday Prize

online poker

Aside from this being the first online poker Sunday during the 2011 World Series of Poker, it was also the first Sunday with many of the majors starting at an earlier time on PokerStars. The result? The numbers were reminiscent of pre-Black Friday — seven players pocketed six-figures.

The biggest win went to "Diogene" in the Sunday Million: $284,798.56. Over at Full Tilt, the $750,000 Guarantee was won by "el_klonkador" for $124,415.26. Also notching a victory on Sunday was Tim "weygang" English.
