The Sunday Briefing: Top Pros Absent but Big Prizes Awarded at PokerStars and FTP

The Sunday Briefing: Top Pros Absent but Big Prizes Awarded at PokerStars and FTP 0001

It was another busy Sunday of online poker tournaments at PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker. Even though many of the top online players are in Las Vegas for the World Series of Poker Main Event, millions of dollars were handed out across both sites. The biggest score went to "dreammancy," who took down the PokerStars Sunday Million for $181,207 after a heads-up deal with "akport." They were the only six-figure winners of the day, but many others scooped big paydays in less than a day of work.

Here's a look at the results from the Sunday Majors at PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker:
