”blakjak19” collected $107,640 for his third-place finish with “SchelampigaUhu” walking away with $150,960 for being the runner-up. Leonard picked up the $207,978 top prize.

The PokerStars Sunday High Roller was won by Sergi “srxakgirona” Reixach this week after he outlasted a field of 165 in the $2,100 buy-in tournament.

This event always attracts the best players in the business so it was no surprise to see a star-studded final table with the likes of “girafganger7”, Simon “C. Darwin2” Mattsson, Sami “Lrslzk” Kelopuro and Johannes “Greenstone25” Korsar at it.

Jonathan “OMGjonyctt” Concepcion finished in third place for $38,593 with “Garrin4e” falling in second place for $50,638. That last exit meant Reixach was the last player standing and his reward was $66,441.
