The Sunday Briefing: Joe Cada Wins Full Tilt Poker Sunday Brawl

Joe Cada

There weren't many soft spots at the final tables of Full Tilt Poker's Sunday Majors this week. Nearly a dozen well-known pros were competing for titles in the two weekly flagship tournaments, the $250,000 Guarantee and the Sunday Brawl.

2009 World Series of Poker Main Event champ Joe Cada outlasted a tough field to win the Sunday Brawl for $42,880. The final table included established online pros Kevin "Wu_Wizard" MacPhee, Sebastian "p00cket00" Sikorski, Caio "Pessagno" Pessagno, Matt "NoBadBeatsPlz" Kay, and Frank "roo_400" Billard. Cada bested MacPhee heads-up for the title.

In the $250,000 Guarantee, Nick "PureCash25" Rampone ousted Toby "sexystuff1989" Lewis heads-up after the two pros agreed to a deal. Griffin "Flush_Entity" Benger finished third, and Maria "Femmeonfelt" Ho took eighth.

Over at PokerStars, the seventh edition of the MicroMillions tournament series came to a close with the conclusion of the $22 Main Event. More than 63,000 players participated in the tournament, creating a prize pool worth $1,264,740. The last player standing was the U.K.'s Raphael "RainmanRJA" Augustin, who locked up $78,802 after a heads-up deal with Russia's "olimpiada."

The biggest earner this week was Brazil's Bernardo "bedias" Dias who took down the PokerStars Sunday Million for $233,674. Mike "RichieRichZH" Friedrich, who won the fifth biggest Sunday Million in history back in 2010, finished fourth for $78,513.
