Sunday Briefing: Greece’s “tzeskobar” Takes Down the Sunday Million

Sunday Briefing
  • Check out the biggest online poker tournament scores from the weekend in the Sunday Briefing.

Greece’s “tzeskobar” was by far the biggest winner in online poker circles this weekend, walking away with the title of Sunday Million champion at PokerStars, a finish worth a colossal $149,645.28.

“tzeskobar” defeated Bernado “bedias” Dias heads up to prevent Dias from joining an elite group of players who have won online poker’s largest weekly tournament twice. Dias banked $105,014.21 for his runner-up finish, which is sure to soften the blow.

The Sunday Grand NLHE may have missed its guarantee this weekend, but there was still $275,000 up for grabs. The lion’s share of this impressive amount is now nestled in the PokerStars account of Adrijan “Adrijan_S” Siishtaj who topped a field of 265 players to get his hands on $52,879.12.
