0
All six events on Sunday's PokerStars Pennsylvania Championship of Online Poker schedule easily made their guarantee.

The PokerStars Pennsylvania Championship of Online Poker continues to produce big fields and prize pools well past the guarantee and as the Day 2 events all soared past their guarantees, a number of players are beginning to emerge as consistent threats.

The first event on Sunday’s PACOOP schedule was Event #3 ($100 Deepstack Eight Max) that drew 377 total entries to produce a $34,608.60 prize pool on a $15,000 guarantee. ‘HeavyLizard‘ topped that field to win $6,297.59 while runner-up ‘suicidezekke‘ had to settle for $4,659.11. Third place finisher ‘Jobrashin55‘ earned $3,447.02.

Aubrey ‘RiverMeDaddy’ Williams finished fifth for $1,886.80.
