888poker ambassador Dominik Nitsche was the big-name winner from this week’s online poker Sunday Majors after taking down his sponsor’s flagship tournament, the $1,050 $100,000 guaranteed Whale, for $30,600, after defeating Joao ‘Jaolito85 ‘Navarro heads-up.

The four-time WSOP bracelet winner outlasted the 102 entrants before he shared his joy and relief on Twitter.

Fabio ‘flbonatto’ Bonatto was the biggest winner across all the Sunday Majors after defeating ‘BalticMoose’ heads-up to take down the prestigious Pokerstars Sunday Million title as he turned $215 into $172,955.

Brazilian Bonatto, whose previous highest online cash came during the 2016 SCOOP series after he won Event 16-M for $46,772, beat the huge 6,406-player field to take the winner’s share of the $1,281,200 prize pool.

PocketFives’ current #3 in the PocketFives Rankings, Andres ‘Probirs’ Nemeth,  was the eventual winner of the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller and banked $56,111.

Elsewhere, Brazil’s Alexandre ‘Cavalito’ Mantovani lost out to ‘Sykoen’ heads-up in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller, $400k Gtd with the players winning $29,652 and $40,453 respectively.

The U.K.’s Toby ‘810ofclubs’ Lewis, who has won more than $1.8 million in live tournaments so far this yearfinished in second place for $30,089 in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up $200k Guaranteed as ‘FDBtazz’ claimed the $41,464 first place prize.

Whilst over on partypoker ‘electrofarha’ won $70,760 after beating out the 2,295 player field in the $215 Super Sunday Main Event-H.

‘thebattler33’ was crowned the $2,600 Sunday Major champion and scooped $61,250 with ‘strangejelly’ coming out on top in the 440 player field $1,050 Super Sunday Big Bounty Hunter-HR for $53,480.
