Finally, the biggest results from partypoker’s Sunday schedule.

A crowd of 1,251 players helped meet the Title Fight’s guarantee by $200 and the event ended in a heads-up chop. “MaxVici” won the tournament with “elsampa69” finishing as runner-up with the heads-up duo collected $36,019.31 and $36,019.30 respectively; that cent makes all the difference!
