  • This weekend's Sunday Million ended in a four-way chop with "12u55" scooping $129,761 and the victory.

There were some massive scores enjoyed at PokerStars, partypoker, and 888poker this weekend, although none of them were bigger than the prizes awarded in the PokerStars Sunday Million.

A huge field of 6,369 entries, of which 1,220 were re-entries, competed in this weekend’s PokerStars Sunday Million, each of them paying $215 and therefore creating a $1,273,800 prize pool. This seven-figure pool was paid among the top 1,160 finishers, with a min-cash being worth $332 and $171,957 reserved for the eventual champion.

The top prize was altered, however, when the final four players decided to pause the tournament clock and discuss a deal. Figures were eventually agreed upon and the tournament resumed with the final quartet guaranteed more than $92,000 for their efforts.

“olehawonit” fell in fourth place but took home $106,983 with “vladik32” crashing out in third-place for $107,226. The runner-p was “grigorg77” who netted $92,754, which left Canada’s “12u55” to win the tournament and the new $129,761 top prize.

Another PokerStars tournament that awarded massive prizes was the $2,100 Sunday High Roller, which saw a 134 strong field this week. The tournament had a high-profile bubble boy in the shape of Mike “SirWatts” Watson who fell in 18th place and was the last one to leave the lobby empty handed.

The likes of Justin “ZeeJustin” Bonomo and Connor “blanconegro” Drinan cashed but it was the final table where the serious money was, as is usually the case in tournament poker.

Spain’s Vicente “vicenfish” Delgado was the final table’s first casualty and he banked $6,585. The prize money continually increased with sixth-place finisher Luke “Bit2Easy” Reeves walking away with $14,961 and fifth-place finisher Pascal “Paffchen” Hartmann netting $19,668.

By the time the tournament reached the heads-up stage, the final two players opted to make the payouts a little shallower and removed approximately $5,000 from the top prize and gave it to second-place, which went to “hdjgkfgsdl.” Czech Republic’s “vojta555cz” collected $53,516 for his impressive victory.
