The Sunday Briefing: Jimmie "AlusivPnkBny" Guinther Among Sunday Major Winners

Jimmie Guinther

For the second consecutive week, the numbers for the PokerStars Sunday Majors were up more than normal across the board, thanks to the World Championship of Online Poker. While there were no six-figure scores, several players had very profitable Sundays on the virtual felt. Among them were João Felipe "LiMa171" Lima, Adam "PutItAllYin" Bitz, and Jimmie "AlusivPnkBny" Guinther, each earning a victory on Sunday.

The $109 Sunday Rebuy drew a field of 1,321 this week, more than doubling its guarantee. The 1,321 entrants, for the most part, eclipses what the tournament used to get before Black Friday. "AJacejackAJ" outlasted the field this week, pocketing $80,267.20.

Team PokerStars Pro Richard Toth found his way to the final table, but ultimately finished in eighth place, taking home $5,619.90. Adam "PutItAllYin" Bitz outlasted the entire field, and after a three-handed deal, walked away with the 40,841.97 first-place prize.

Although "cosy5" technically finished in first place, both "cosy5" and "sannnya" went exactly 50/50 to each earn $25,219.57.
