  • Kabotajoe and Sam Greenwood were among the big winners at PokerStars this weekend.

This week's PokerStars $215 Sunday Million saw a bumper field of 5,889 players turn out and create a $1,177,800 prize pool. The lion's share of this impressive sum was shared among the final four players who chopped up the remaining cash to lock up at least $83,132.

"Triantafill" finished in fourth place for $83,132, Brazil's Adrovan "AadrovanRj21" Rodrigues busted in third place for $95,605, and Romania's "GhostCapo" banked a cool $100,835. It was Germany's "Kabotajoe" who scooped the largest prize of the night, a princely $162,148.

Another major tournament ending in a chop was the $1,050 Sunday Grand NLHE, which ended with the final three players striking a deal. "GiVeMeBaLLs" was the third-place finisher for $31,917, while "fred_volpe" netted $31,884 for his runner-up finish and "El Braulin" secured a $34,966 payout by becoming the tournament's champion.
