Sunday Briefing
  • The WSOP may have the poker world's attention, but there is still plenty of action happening online.

Sweden’s Johannes “SLARVBOGMAJS” Korsar drew ever closer to $10 million in online winnings this weekend when he took down the $2,600 buy in Super High Roller at partypoker for $52,436.

Korsar topped a field of 71 entrants to get his hands on the large prize and this latest victory, his 193rd online, means he now has more than $9.5 million in online cashes according to PocketFives.com.

Another big winner at partypoker on Jun. 4 was “PeitodePeru” who triumphed in the $250,000 guaranteed Title Fight. The Brazilian turned $215 into $42,625 by outlasting 1,207 opponents.

Partypoker’s other large-scale tournament is the $150,000 guaranteed Main Event. The $109 buy in event attracted a field of 1,610 entries and it was Igor “IgorFederal” Trafane who came out on top to win $24,601.

In the $150,000 guaranteed High Roller, “SentimenTODO23” was crowned champion and won $29,778 while in the $100,000 guaranteed High Roller it was “BenRichards1” who emerged victorious and turned $530 into $22,669.

Over at 888poker, Nick “PKaiser” Fierro won the $100,000 Baby Whale for $20,450, “sir.dohoda” secured the $22,516 first place prize of the $100,000 Mega Deep and the United Kingdom’s “Cannette_15” took down the $40,000 Turbo Mega Deep for a $10,492 score.

This weekend’s $30,000 Sunday Crocodile ended in a heads-up chop between “77kol0bok77” and “iCrushU556” who netted $7,477 and $6,241 and it was Canada’s “popsnpoker” who won the $60,000 Sunday Challenge for a $13,614 addition to their bankroll.

PokerStars was hit with connectivity problems on Sunday, which resulted in dozens of tournaments being cancelled, including the Sunday Million, both the no-limit hold’em and pot-limit Omaha Sunday Grands and the popular Super-Sized Sunday.

Some tournaments were completed before the server problems, including “GS_LT” who won the $109 Sunday Starter for $6,391 and the Netherlands’ “Graftekkel” who came out on top of a 161 field in the Big $162 for $4,878.

In the Hot $162, “Durrden” of Germany bagged the $6,306 top prize while “MD IACONI” of Moldova won $14,618 in cash and $13,910 in bounty payments in the $215 Bounty Builder.

Lastly, “eijseijs” won the fast-paced Hot $162 for a cool $12,206.
