The Sunday Briefing: Eric "Uniceja" Brenes Part of Five-Way Chop in PokerStars Sunday Million

The Sunday Briefing: Eric "Uniceja" Brenes Part of Five-Way Chop in PokerStars Sunday Million 0001

It's not often you can get five people to agree on anything, but that's what happened Sunday in the Sunday Million on PokerStars. The final five players agreed to a deal which saw each of them secure at least $95,000, with four pocketing a six-figure payday.

U_2GOOD4_M3 received the biggest share of the prize pool ($121,407) before bowing out in fourth place. Eric "Uniceja" Brenes, the nephew of Humberto Brenes, eventually finished second for $121,407. He lost heads-up to "mastervp888" who collected $119,694 for the win.

Others earning big paydays on Sunday were Jason "jdtjpoker" Wheeler, Marty "TheLipoFund" Mathis, and Chris "Big Huni" Hunichen, who took down The Sunday Major at Full Tilt.

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