Sunday Million


  • Check out the results from the biggest online tournaments on June 3, 2016 in the Sunday Briefing.

Although it may seem like every poker player in the world is currently in Las Vegas competing for a World Series of Poker gold bracelet, that isn't the case because thousands of grinders chose to stay at home and continue plying their trade online.

One such player was Australia's "Jay-Syl11", who was one of 5,668 entries in this week's Sunday Million at PokerStars. Thirteen hours after the $215 buy-in tournament began, the Aussie was the last player standing, having won all of the 56.68 million chips in play, and collected $177,297.74 for the victory.

This week’s Sunday Million runner-up was "bogurdan" of Russia, who walked away with $132,064.40.

It was a familiar name at the top of the Sunday Supersonic this week, that of Brazilian star Joao Mathias "joaoMathias" Baumgarten. Winning $30,045.17 in less than two-and-a-half hours should significantly up his hourly rate for the foreseeable future.
