0
One of online poker's best grabbed a Sunday Major title this week.

‘Bencb789’ was the big winner across this week’s Sunday Majors after collecting $62,582, which included victory in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up for $51,562. The well-known MTT player and coach outlasted a field of 1,704 entrants and defeated Andrew ‘eastwest_27’ Theriault heads-up to take the majority of the bumper $340,000 prize pool.

Bencb789’s coaching site ‘RaiseYourEdge’ tweeted their delight after seeing its premier coach secure victory and later announced he had added another $11,000 to his Sunday winnings after a final table finish in the 888poker $100,000 Whale.

PokerStars hosted their anniversary $10M Guaranteed Sunday Million ‘Take 2’ event this weekend, which has a first-place prize of $1m, and the client saw increased prize pools across its major Sunday Tournaments. The ‘Sunday Million Take 2’ re-starts today (April 23) at 19:00 WET with 735 of the 56,310 players still remaining.

‘OempaLoempah’ achieved his biggest online cash by winning the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller, $150JK Guaranteed event. The tournament saw 156 entrants create a prize pool of $312,000 – more than double the guarantee, with a first-place prize of $64,671. ‘M1TR4ND1R’ was the runner-up for $49,287 after succumbing to the pressure of ‘OempaLoempah’ heads-up.

The $530 Bounty Builder High Roller collected a prize pool of $674,000 after seeing 1,348 entrants battle it out. ‘FloweerBoy’, who finished third in the Sunday Million back in 2016, was the last player standing and banked $52,226.

BenRichards1was the big winner across partypoker’s Sunday events after claiming victory in the $2,600 Sunday Major Super High Roller. The PocketFiver, who has over $5.5m in online tournament cashes, claimed the $63,600 first-place prize after eliminating ‘shadoww0rm’, who banked $44,400 as runner-up.

Paul ‘Senterpied99’ Senter won $40,110 after claiming the $1,050 Super Sunday Big Bounty Hunter-HR title. The result was the Cardiff based player’s second-largest recorded online cash.

Leandro ‘hayarropatodos’ Bustillo, winner of the 2016 WCOOP-29 $700 Sunday Million event for $298,927, added another gold medal to his PocketFives profile with victory in the $530 Super Sunday Main Event High Roller. The Argentine came through the 533 player field to win $49,675, with ‘EXPENSIVE22’ taking $35,311 for second place.

The partypoker Super Sunday Main Event High reverted from a $215 to $109 buy-in this week, which created a $258,300 prize pool. ‘profikiller73’ took the title for $41,748 after navigating their way through the large 2,583 player field.

Over on 888poker, Anton ‘anteen’ Bertilsson and former PocketFives #1-ranked ‘VnilaVader’ agreed on a heads-up deal in the client’s premier Sunday tournament the $1,050 The $100,000 Guaranteed Whale. Bertilsson ultimately claimed the victory and $29,515, with ‘VnilaVader’ having to settle for second place and $23,844 for his share of the deal.

Russia’s ‘CalmRevolver‘ was the champion in the 888poker $215 Sunday Mega Deep, with the tournament seeing a $103,800 prize pool this week. ‘CalmRevolver’, who has a WCOOP title to their name, bested a field of 519 entrants and added $19,722 to their lifetime cashes.

Last but not least, a shoutout goes to ‘josef_shvejk’ who final-tabled both the partypoker $530 Super Sunday Main Event and the 888poker $1,050 The $100,000 Whale for combined total winnings of $11,000.
