PocketFives Sunday Majors
Russia's 'needdollarz' took down the PokerStars Turbo Series $5K event on Sunday

Ukraine’s ‘yarik1903‘ came through an 11,732 player field in the PokerStars $109 Sunday Million to bank $119,324, as ‘needdollarz’ and ‘STORTjavlaGL’ also picked up six-figure scores across this week’s Sunday Majors.

The $109 Sunday Million win for ‘yarik1903’ now means the player has won three PokerStars marquee tournaments after the Ukrainian took down the ‘Sunday Storm‘ in 2013, and the ‘Sunday Warm-Up‘ in 2015.

The prize pool reached $1,173,200, and after ‘xGriv‘ departed in third place for $62,837, Argentina’s ‘TEENageTuRtL‘ was the final opponent for ‘yarik1903’. Ultimately, ‘TEENageTuRtL’ was the last player to hit the rail, taking away $86,589, and ‘yarik1903’ added another gold medal to his online collection.

Former Sunday Million champion ‘needdollarz‘ came through a 187 player-field in the PokerStars Turbo Series 108: $5,200 NLHE [8-Max, PKO] HR to bank a staggering $242,000. The $750,000 guaranteed prize pool was exceeded, despite a boycott taking place by a significant number of the high-stakes players, with the final total confirmed at $935,000. ‘tangananator‘ took the bronze medal for $55,829 + $29,531 before last week’s PokerStars High Roller runner-up ‘huang33‘ was unable to get the better of ‘needdollarz’ heads-up and departed in second place for $71,956.85 + $19,140.

Naza114‘ defeated Johannes ‘Greenstone25’ Korsar heads-up and claimed this week’s PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller title. A field of 112 entrants created a $224,000 prize pool, and when the final table was reached current world-ranked #2 ‘C.Darwin2‘ hit the rail in sixth place for $13,793. The UK’s Conor ‘1_conor_b_1’ Beresford continued his recent run of good form and collected the bronze medal for $30,447 before the final battle commenced. Sweden’s Korsar then had to settle for $39,643 as runner-up, as ‘Naza114’ took the win for $51,617.

NastyMinder‘ added over $87,000 to their bankroll after coming through a 1,154 field in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller. ‘RaiseYourEdge‘ Head Coach ‘Bencb789‘ just missed out on a podium position after he fell in fourth place for $18,487 + $6,851 in bounties. ‘NanoDawn‘ then took bronze position for $25,221 + $7,277, before ‘brunojardas1‘ was the final player to hit the rail, and took away $34,409 + $3,055 in return for second place.

Portugal’s Julio ‘julioassp’ Ribeiro turned $215 into $35,047 by taking down the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up. 1,080 entrants took part, which meant a share of the $216,000 prize pool was up for grabs. When just the final three were left, ‘guru056’ was the first to depart and banked $18,118, which left Riberio up against ‘HU4FU‘ for the title. The Portuguese man ultimately came through the challenge for the win, with ‘HU4FU’ taking away $25,199 in second place.

STORTjavlaGL‘ claimed the partypoker $5,200 KO Series #74-SHR title for a score worth a massive $193,000. The prize pool hit $1,050,600 after 206 entrants took part, and Belgium’s Thomas ‘ChaAat’ Boivin took fourth place for $43,731 + $16,737 in bounties. Souhftfw collected $59,149 + $27,787 before the final two battled for the big bounty prizes. Former ‘PowerFest’ champion ‘PokerBrothersTM‘ was the final player unable to hold onto their bounty for the duration, and exited as runner-up for $82,926 + $27,056, as ‘STORTjavlaGL‘ picked up the final prize.

aLiNeNok1617‘ prevented partypoker ambassador Joao ‘joaosimaobh’ Simao from another win on his representative site in the partypoker $3,150 Super Sunday High Roller. 67 entrants stumped up the buy-in and created a $201,000 prize pool. ‘BigPescado69‘ saw their deep run come to an end in third place for $28,140, before Simao faced off against ‘aLiNeNok1617’. But the Brazilian former world-ranked #1 could not add to his 209 online gold medals, and instead collected a 135th silver medal worth $41,205 as ‘aLiNeNok1617’ banked $61,305 for first.

Over on 888poker, ‘DeuceofDuc0‘ took down the 888poker $50,000 Whale, but it was runner-up ‘Kroat.‘ who banked the most money after a heads-up deal. There was a $62,000 prize pool to play for after 62 entrants took part, and it was ‘spider4444‘ who took the bronze medal for $9,300, paving the way for a heads-up deal. Once the numbers were agreed and play recommenced, ‘DeuceofDuc0’ was ultimately the last player to survive and banked $17,281, with runner-up ‘Kroat.’ earning $21,158 for their share of the deal.

And last but not least, in the 888poker $100,000 RakeLESS Sunday $200 Sunday Mega Deep, Latvia’s Rihards ‘Rihard4a’ Dobelis secured his best online score to date after he topped a 732 player-field to bank $27,669. Dobelis defeated ‘kudesnik2012‘ heads-up, with the latter banking $20,276, after ‘SkallePer58’ had hit the rail in third place for $14,932.
