The PokerStars $109 Sunday Million reverted to a special Progressive Knockout format on Sunday, and the change seemed popular with a massive 16,281 entrants creating a $1,628,100 prize pool. With a $70,097 top-prize, and bounties on each player’s head, there was still a possible six-figure payday to play for. Russia’s ‘Disel59‘ secured by far their biggest online score to date after banking $36,908 + $7,606 in bounties for third place. ‘Bykladjo‘ was the final player to lose the bounty on their head, and departed as runner-up for $50,859 + $8,675, as ‘Newcomer113‘ won the prestigious gold medal alongside $70,097 + $35,971.

Austria’s Thomas ‘WushuTM’ Muehloecker continued his recent run of good form to win the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller after a heads-up battle against Alex ‘bigfox86’ Foxen. After ‘ARTSchGamble‘ was eliminated in third place from the 84 entrants field for $23,732, the two top ten ranked players battled it out for the victory. Foxen, currently #5 ranked in the online rankings, ultimately lost out to world #6 Muehloecker, and banked  $30,867 in second place, with the Austrian gaining another gold and $40,146.

Former Sunday Million bronze medalist ‘krasark‘ topped a 947 player-field in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller to win over $66,000. ‘ATrevorA‘ was awared with $20,960 + $10,140 in bounties for a third-place finish, before Brazil’s #1 ‘GeraldoCesar‘ hit the rail as runner-up for $28,595 + $6,994, with ‘krasark’ securing $28,595 + $6,994 and the gold medal.

Lithuania’s ‘BalticMoose‘ added the PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up title to achievements list less than six-months after victory in the Sunday Million. ‘BalticMoose’ saw off a field of 746 players to win the $25,349 first-place prize, with ‘livinmydream1‘ taking $18,395 as runner-up, and ‘Stroposoz‘ securing $13,349 in third.

SunTzu‘ won the biggest Sunday prize on offer at partypoker after a battling win in the 95 player field $2,100 Sunday High Roller Gladiator. After Kenny ‘SpaceyFCB’ Hallaert exited in fourth place for $9,293 + $5,643 in bounties, and ‘El_Cucuy‘ took the bronze for $13,423 + $6,956, ‘SunTzu’ secured the win for $19,112 + $25,725, after ‘CalmDownMan‘ saw their run ended in second place, good for $19,093 + $19,949.

American pro Darren Elias won the partypoker $320 Sunday Gladiator for $15,615 + $17,097 in bounties. Elias, who has a combined $10.7m in live and online earnings, topped a 743 player field with ‘powerrrrr‘ taking second place for $15,592 + $3,298, and ‘oooUsoooWacist‘ banking $10,480 + $5,796 in third.

Over on GG Poker, the Sunday action once again saw a host of high-stakes wins including over $200,000 in cashes for ‘ImLividBuddy.’ The Canadian based player won the Sunday Blade $5k for $88,861, topping a 54 player-field after ‘HE22‘ hit the rail in second for $54,306, and ‘ImLividBuddy’ followed it up with a bronze medal worth $124,381 in the Sunday Blade $25k. The final two players then agreed to a money-deal before ‘PyramidOfSkulls’ exited in second place with the lion’s share of the prize pool worth $295,681, and ‘RockyMarciano’ took first place for $236,366.
