online poker

Well, we know that Americans weren't spending the July 4 weekend winning seven figures online, but that didn't stop others from doing so. The PokerStars Sunday Million was won by "bmky88" for $161,000 after defeating Pavel "besar_cz" Lipa heads up. Also notching a victory on Sunday was Danish online phenom "Halfrek", who won the $109 Sunday Rebuy for $44,175.
