Sunday Briefing: David Peters Wins the PokerStars Sunday Million

David Peters
  • David Peters was online poker's biggest winner this weekend after taking down the Sunday Million.

The attention of the poker world may be focused on the European Poker Tour Malta Festival, but there was also plenty of tournament action online this Sunday, too.

Last week, David “dpeters17” Peters saw his PokerStars Sunday Million run end in a 16th-place finish. Yesterday, Peters made amends for his “close but no cigar” result by walking away with the $143,505.41 first-place prize.

It was a fantastic result that boosts Peters’ online tournament winnings through the $5 million barrier and represents his third-largest online cash in his illustrious career this far. Peters also has a great record in live tournaments, where he has won almost $12.5 million.

Although Peters’ score was the largest of any result online this weekend, some of the other sizable scores at PokerStars included:

Over at partypoker, “daBetFred” walked away with the $11,837.09 first-place prize of the $50,000 Guaranteed Weigh-In, topping a field of 644 in the $109 buy in tournament. Another $109 buy in event was the $150,000 Guaranteed Main Event which saw “emkolima3645" bank a cool $25,309.27.

A trio of high roller events take place at partypoker every Sunday: two with a $530 buy in and one with commanding $2,600 to enter. The latter awarded Simon “HellmuthTheGr8” Mattsson $47,937.50 when he beat Oliver “ThreeBunPass” Price heads-up, while the $200,000 guaranteed $530 buy in was won by “dartazz” who collected $35,000 after a three-handed chop.

The final high roller, a $530 Six-Max, was taken down by “KONY2012” for $16,109.53 with the aforementioned Mattsson finishing third for an additional $6,180.

Finally, over to 888poker where “MainHiAk” came out on top of the $100,000 Baby Whale, turning $320 into $21,013.05. Impressive as that score was, the $24,750 that Robert “float2felt” Snell won for triumphing in the $100,000 Mega Deep topped it in terms of size.

This week’s $50,000 Turbo Mega Deep ended in a two-way chop with Aleks “alexdimitrov” Dimitrov finishing second for $8,780.28 and South Korea’s Jae “neontiger” Kim winning the tournament and $8,944.72.

In the $40,000 Sunday Crocodile, “asolisbri” turned $160 into $12,032.13 by becoming its champion, and “ickemeister,” Bogdan “Ph4N888” Nicolae and “bossamtisch1” finished in first, second and third place in the $60,000 Sunday Challenge, but not before striking a deal that banked them scores of $10,440.75, $10,909.65 and $12,348.55.
