0
A number of former top-ranked players scored big on Sunday.

Brazil’s Henrique Bastos Coutinho came through a 5,490 player field to bank $148,292 and become this week’s PokerStars Sunday Million champion. Playing under the alias ‘Galochina10‘ he was able to beat ‘it.happ3ns.‘ into second-place for $104,064, with ‘mrAndreeew‘ taking away $73,028 in third-place. The win for Coutinho meant he smashed his previous best recorded online cash of $10,244 by some margin.

sousinha23‘ came through a tough PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller final table that included the top two ranked players in the world Lena900 and C.Darwin2 to bank $45,028. ‘Lena900’ followed by ‘€urop€an’, Michael ‘mczhang’ Zhang, ‘Bigfish112392‘, ‘C.Darwin2’ and ‘roo_400‘ exited the tournament before ‘probirs‘ took $25,825 in third. ‘sousinha23‘ was then able to get the better of ‘cigarromata‘ heads-up to take the title with the latter taking $34,100 in second.

This week’s PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller winner was former world #1 ranked ‘p0cket00‘ after they eliminated ‘Karssen1987‘ heads-up. ‘p0cket00’, who has over $11m in online earnings, won $32,536.83 + $28,122.96 (in bounties) with runner-up ‘Karssen1987‘ banking $23,848.97 + $5,515.62 (in bounties). Sweden’s Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar took away $17,481 + $2,687.50 (in bounties) in third-place.

mraink‘ came through a 1,066 player field in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up and sent Jonas Palsgård Christensen to the rail during heads-up play to secure a $34,593 payday. Christensen took away $24,872 for his efforts and ‘fers223‘ won $17,883 in third.

Also, a shoutout must go to ‘Bagelakis23‘ who was able to achieve sixth-place finishes in both the Sunday Million and the Sunday Warm-Up.

Malapisk‘ was able to secure two titles across the partypoker Sunday Majors for a combined total prize of $53,894. Firstly, ‘Malapisk’ and John Adderley agreed to a heads-up deal in the $1,050 Deepstack-HR to bank $36,694 and $33,685 respectively. There were a total of 198 entries, and after ‘FoldDigger‘ fell in third-place for $21,100 the final two made the money deal before ‘Malapisk’ took down the win, and John Adderley achieved his highest online cash to date.

And their second win of the day came in the $109 Sunday Major for $17,200. ‘LeadRush‘ was the player to fall at the hands of ‘Malapisk’ this time around during heads-up and took away $12,320 for second-place.

Elsewhere on partypoker, there was a field of 39 players in the $2,500 Super Sunday High Roller as ‘mwhldwn’, AKA RaiseYourEdge head coach ‘Bencb’, beat partypoker ambassador Patrick Leonard to take the win for $40,500. Leonard’s prize for second-place was $26,500 with current PocketFives world #2 ‘HellmuthTheGr8‘ taking the bronze medal for $16,500.

Demba_Pa‘ took the majority share of the $150,000 prize pool in the $530 Sunday Major after they came through the 293 player field for the victory. Paul ‘Sheld0nC00per’ Allen exited in third-place for $15,230 before ‘x_zola25‘ took $20,778 in second-place and ‘Demba_Pa’ was awarded with $28,545 for the win. There was also a second final table appearance of the day for Patrick Leonard after he took fifth-place for $8,183.

Over on 888poker, Fabrizio ‘DrMikee’ Gonzalez achieved gold and bronze medals in the flagship ‘Sunday Mega Deep’ and ‘Whale’ tournaments. Ivan ‘hurrrrican3’ Gabrieli took down the $1,050 The $100,000 Whale for $24,596 after agreeing to a heads-up deal with Alessandro ‘ZeroNineee’ Valli. Gabrieli, who took the silver medal in last week’s 888poker Sunday Mega Deep, went this distance this time around as Valli banked $17,387 as runner-up and Gonzalez claimed $10,950 in third place.

Gonzalez then went the distance in the $215 Sunday Mega Deep to add another $19,250 to their Sunday winnings after he defeated ‘GangstaGo’ heads-up. The runners-up prize was $14,250 with American Bryan ‘DePittsterje’ Paris taking the final podium spot for $10,750.
