The Sunday Briefing: Martin Staszko Wins PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up

Martin Staszko

Poker players were seeing double during their Sunday grind on PokerStars. The world's leading online poker room ran the Sunday Million and Sunday Warm-Up twice as part of Double Vision Sunday. In all, more than $3.5 million was up for grabs between the four biggest tournaments available on Sunday's tournament slate.

Last week, 2014 November Niner Jorryt van Hoof headlined the Sunday Briefing after winning the PokerStars Sunday Warm-up. Another WSOP Main Event finalist took down the same title on Double Vision Sunday as Martin "filfedra" Staszko won the 6-Max Sunday Warm-Up for $110,478.

Staszko, who finished runner-up in the 2011 WSOP Main Event for $5.4 million, bested a field of 2,939 in Sunday's six-max tournament. The final table also included Roman "RomeOpro" Romanovsky, who placed third for $52,249.

Longtime poker pros Jon "apestyles" Van Fleet and Greg "gregior" Howard reached the final table of the Sunday Million on Sunday, but it was Pablo "Rhyno2008" Nerro who landed in the winner's circle. Nerro was the biggest winner of the day, pocketing a $217,717 top prize.

Here's a full look at the results from the Sunday Majors on PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, partypoker and WSOP.com:
