The Sunday Briefing: Cardyn Wins Sunday Million; Kanit Wins FTOPS Main Event

Nicolas Cardyn and Mustapha Kanit

Sunday, March 29, 2015, was a big day for online poker, and several top prizes were awarded across the biggest sites.

On PokerStars, the Sunday Million saw an impressive field of 7,000 participants create a $1.4 million prize pool. After a three-way deal, Nicolas "Legadzo" Cardyn earned top honors and over $182,000. The MicroMillions Main Event also took place, and 59,648 entrants ponied up the affordable $22 buy-in to create a massive prize pool of nearly $1.2 million. That event was won by "BgsaPnaples" for over $110,000.

On Full Tilt, the latest installment of the famous FTOPS came to a close. Event #34: $200 No-Limit Hold'em was won by "T Bundy" for over $65,000, but it was Event #35: $250 FTOPS Main Event that stole the show on this site. A field of 1,260 entries generated a $1.197 million prize pool and saw Mustpha "potta_x_potta" Kanit take home the title for nearly $240,000.

Elsewhere, the partypoker $200K Guaranteed Sunday was replaced by the $250K Guaranteed Sunday due to Pokerfest running strong, and WSOP.com Nevada's big Sunday event — the $15,000 Weekly Sunday Guarantee — generated a prize pool of over $25,000.

Let's get to the results in this week's edition of the Sunday Briefing.
