benasg‘ came through a colossus 13,228 player-field in the PokerStars Sunday Million to turn $109 into $129,213. This was just the second week of the revamped lower buy-in event, and it once again proved popular with the prize pool set at $1,322,800. PocketFiver Jonathan ‘Gil3000’ Gill just missed out on a place at the final table, after he fell in 10th place, before ‘parisjoe‘, ‘Fieldmice1‘, ‘FiltrMan‘, ‘Japa Bill‘, ‘XuYandex‘, and ‘verkannt‘ departed to leave the final three.

pharaohus‘ ultimately took the bronze medal for $68,043, before ‘Barkieboy NL‘ just fell short of the title and walked away with $93,762, which left ‘benasg’ to claim the glory.

A heads-up deal in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up paved the way for ‘dadowiec‘ to claim this week’s title, with Finland’s ‘Hasseh922‘ finishing in second place. The entrants total once again crept over four-figures with 1,099 players creating a $219,800 prize pool. ‘Tomatee‘ ended their deep run with a strong $18,437 score in third-place before the final two shook virtual hands on a money-deal. ‘Hasseh922’ then found themselves as the final player to hit the rail and took $28,847 for their share of the deal, as ‘dadowiec’ sat the top of the podium for $32,460.

MCvisitor‘ defeated ‘8_Spizzico_9‘ heads-up to claim victory in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller for over $81,000. 1,090 entrants created a $545,000 prize pool, with ‘Progre69‘ walking away with over $23,000 for a fourth-place finish. Phil ‘philroyal888’ Mighall took the bronze medal for $23,822 + $2,738 in bounties, before ‘8_Spizzico_9’ fell at the hands of ‘MCvisitor’ and departed as runner-up with $32,500 + $7,809. 

Remi Lebo_10‘ just pipped Anatoly ‘NL_Profit’ Filatov to victory in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller and banked $53,919 in the process. The prize pool was set at $246,000 after 123 entrants stumped up the mega-bucks buy-in. Former PocketFives World #1 Calvin ‘cal42688’ Anderson claimed third place for $31,939, which left Filatov in pursuit of his third gold medal of 2019. But ‘Remi Lebo_10’ had other ideas and sent the Russian to the rail in second place for $41,498.

But Filatov wasn’t done there and continued his rich vein of form with a third-place finish in the partypoker $1,050 Sunday High Roller for $23,000. The partypoker ambassador’s exit paved the way for a heads-up battle between ‘haddoken‘ and ‘RedDwarf9‘, and it was the former who held on to win the $44,260 first-place prize, with ‘RedDwarf’ having to settle for the $31,800 runners-up prize.

The new partypoker $3,150 Super Sunday High Roller attracted 66 entrants and saw ‘MisterN411‘ taking away the biggest share of the $200k guaranteed prize pool. partypoker ambassador Patrick Leonard was among those to reach the final table but departed in sixth place for $11,000. ‘omgitsgiraf‘ secured the bronze medal worth $28,000 before ‘aLiNeNok1617’ found themselves hitting the rail as runner-up for $41,000, asMisterN411′ picked up the $61,000 win.
