The Sunday Briefing: Ravi Shaymardanov Makes Two Final Tables, Wins Sunday Warm-Up

The Sunday Briefing: Ravi Shaymardanov Makes Two Final Tables, Wins Sunday Warm-Up 0001

Several top pros pocketed big scores on the virtual felt on Sunday, but it was an unfamiliar name that stole the headlines. Ravi "Ravishka" Shaymardanov reached the final table of Sunday Warm-Up and Sunday 2nd Chance at PokerStars — just hours apart — en route to the biggest day of his poker career with earnings of more than $108,000.

The Russian player won the Warm-Up for more than $85,000 after agreeing to a heads-up deal with Chris "NigDawG" Brammer. A short while later he exited in third place in the 2nd Chance for more than $23,000, giving him his first-ever six-figure day online.

Others hitting paydirt on Sunday were Sanjay "sanjizzy" Sahijwany, George "GeoManousos" Sotiropoulos, Patrick "pads1161" Leonard, and Jareth "hteraaj2001" East, who won the Full Tilt Sunday Major for $41,460. Be on the lookout for an interview with East here at PokerNews later this week.

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