Sunday Briefing: Mike 'MikeyGG3' Gentili Claims Two Sunday Titles

Doug Lang
  • Canadians dominated the online poker headlines after securing big wins on Sunday.

Mike “MikeyGG3” Gentili had a massive Sunday on the virtual felt. The Canadian poker pro was involved in a three-way chop before emerging victorious in the $1,050 Sunday grand NLHE on PokerStars, banking $32,094 for his win. Later in the day he would later bag another large score at partypoker. More on that later.

Meanwhile, fellow Canadian Doug “dlanger610” Lang edged ever closer to $4 million in online poker tournament winnings (according to PocketFives.com) thanks to taking down the latest edition of the PokerStars Sunday Million.

Lang came out on top of a bumper crowd of 6,262 players to get his hands on $165,343, which happens to be the second-largest online cash of his career. Lang would have won $20,000 more but he, “marcelo v121” and “Pavlov101” struck a deal with the tournament was three-handed.
