The Sunday Briefing: Cezarescu, Turker, and Desveaux Earn Sunday Titles

Online Tournament Results

Coming on the heels of EPT Tallinn and LAPT Punta del Este, the first online-poker Sunday of August on PokerStars kicked off with three players earning six-figure scores. Robert "rrobert333" Cezarescu, Sadan "the_snail03" Turker, and Scott "PokerToronto" Desveaux were also among those victorious on the virtual felt on Sunday.

PokerStars Sunday Million ($1M Guaranteed)

$200+$156,565$1,313,000

Despite a drop in attendance from last week, the Sunday Million still produced three six-figure scores. The biggest went to "TY4Stacks2." Despite entering the final table third in chips, "TY4Stacks2" quickly took the chip lead holding {8-Spades}{8-Clubs} against "26071985's" {A-Hearts}{2-Clubs} when the board ran out {9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{10-Hearts}.

When play reached heads-up, the final two agreed to a deal guaranteeing each more than $160,000, leaving $20,000 on the line. After building up a sizable chip lead, "TY4Stacks2" finished the deal with {A-Spades}{7-Clubs} against "KevinV's" {3-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}. The board came down {10-Spades}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}{A-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} to close it out for "TY4Stacks2," earning $185,384.15 for the win.

PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up ($500K Guaranteed)

Buy-inEntrantsPrize Pool
$200+$153,363$672,600

Unlike the Sunday Million, the Sunday Warm-Up did see a slight increase in numbers this week.The biggest name at the final table was undoubtedly Matt "ch0ppy" Kay, fresh off a deep run in the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event. Despite entering the final table second in chips, Kay lost a flip and followed that with a bad beat. He got it in with {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Hearts} against "el canbass'" {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}. The board rolled out {J-Clubs}{4-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}, delivering a cruel two-out river to eliminate Kay.

The eventual winner of the tournament was "mr.salgado30," the one who won the early race against Kay. After reaching a deal with "el canbass," "mr.salgado30" took it down with ace-seven offsuit as well. It was his {A-Hearts}{7-Spades} against {10-Clubs}{9-Spades}. The better hand held up as the board ran out {7-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}.
