There was another Sunday of big money wins across online poker's top tournaments with the crowning of a three-time PokerStars Sunday Million champion. Russia's 'veeea' took down the PokerStars Sunday Million for an outstanding third time in their career after they came through the 5,236 player-field to win $141,494. 'veeea' who previously won the event back in 2015 and 2017 is also a three-time Super Tuesday champion and a former PocketFives.com world number #1. The win for 'veeea' comes less than eight weeks after a near miss in the Sunday Million chasing a third title when they ended up with the bronze medal for $71,823, but this time around they achieved it. 'LEHMATLENTAA' departed in third place for $69,680 before 'WhatA298' fell at the final hurdle during heads-up and banked an impressive $99,292. Nick "fu_15" Maimone defeated Viktor 'Isildur1' Blom heads-up in the PokerStars $530 Bounty Builder High Roller after the pair had agreed to a money deal. Blom was awarded the slightly bigger share after negotiations had taken place after 'Roma_Tilt' had departed in third place for $19,787 + $5,885 in bounties. However, Maimone was able to turn it around and sent Blom to the rail as runner-up for $32,331 + $9,368 in bounties, with Maimome picking up $31,491 + $23,542 in bounties for the win. The PokerStars $215 Sunday Warm-Up saw a 919 entrants field create a $183,800 prize pool with Malta's 'wisopekeño!' banking the largest share. 'KayCrusher' exited in third place for $15,867.25, which left 'wisopekeño!' in a battle against the Czech Republic's 'Vocaaas.' 'wisopekeño!' was able to come out on top to win the $30,693 top-prize and continued a great year having picked up a SCOOP title in May. 'Vocaaas' added another $22,068 to their already impressive $1.1m in online earnings as runner-up. 'M.nosbocaJ' topped an 82 player-field in the PokerStars $2,100 Sunday High Roller to win $39,838. 'Pimmss' claimed the bronze medal for $24,511, before 'M.nosbocaJ' faced off with 'topdoll827' for the title, with the latter falling in second place for $31,248. 'SandwichBacon' banked over $41,000 for victory in the partypoker $1,050 Sunday HR Bounty Hunter after they defeated 'Skipper22' heads-up. One hundred and fifty entrants created a prize pool worth $153,000 and when Sweden's 'Algorhytm' hit the rail in third for $9,000 + $3,607 in bounties, 'Skipper22' was unable to get the better of 'SandwichBacon' and settled for $12,375 + $7,036 in bounties as the runner-up. Samuel 'JHelppi' Vousden went the distance in the partypoker $2,600 Super Sunday High Roller and added another impressive result to his poker c.v. The Finn won his 84th PocketFives.com gold medal after a heads-up victory over 'j2805667' who exited in second for $31,900. 'addhuSK' banked $21,025 in third place, with Vousden taking away $47,125 for the win. Bulgaria's #1 ranked player 'SUPERSCOUSER' was the last player standing in the partypoker $1,050 Deepstack after they held off the challenge of 97 other players to win $24,500. Sweden's former world ranked #1 'Doyle_B' came third for $12,500, with 'Gl4adiat0r' the final player to depart, and banked $17,500 as runner-up. 'Yattag0' turned $215 into $16,380 after they came through a 420 player-field in the 888poker $80,000 Sunday Mega Deep. On a final table of eight, 'ShipGold' had to settle for bronze in third place for $9,240, before 'DuckFace01' banked $12,180 in second, which meant 'Yattag0' was this week's hero.

The World Poker Tour Rolling Thunder stop in Lincoln, California wrapped up on Tuesday with former Sacramento resident Erkut Yilmaz pulling off the incredible feat of winning his second WPT Main Tour stop in the same season. Now a Philadelphia resident, Yilmaz took down the WPT Borgata Poker Open in September, taking home a career-high cash of $575,112 in the process. Now, after navigating through the field of 280 runners at Thunder Valley Casino Resort, and eventually defeating Jim Collopy in a grueling heads-up battle, he's become a two-time WPT champion and takes home $303,920 for the victory. Before he could celebrate his Sacramento homecoming, Yilmaz would have to face an incredibly stacked final table that included Season 13 WPT Player of the Year Anthony Zinno and WPT Champions Club member Dylan Linde. North Carolina business owner Jerry Robinson was at his first World Poker Tour final table when he looked down at [poker card="ah"][poker card="ad"] and put in a raise from the hijack. Ajay Chabra defended his big blind with the dominated [poker card="ac"][poker card="3c"]. The flop came [poker card="ks"][poker card="5c"][poker card="4c"] and Chabra checked it over to Robinson who bet. Chabra put in a healthy check-raise and Robinson moved all in with his tournament on the line. With the nut flush draw, Chabra made the call. The turn was the [poker card="6s"] giving Chabra an open-ended straight draw to go along with his flush draw. The river fell the [poker card="7h"], bringing in the runner-runner straight for Chabra and sending Robinson to the rail having his aces cracked. Robinson picked up $50,720 for a new career-high cash. Anthony Zinno started the day as the short stack and was able to find a double up which helped him ladder the payouts. However, he wasn’t long for the final table after a clash with Collopy. Zinno raised from the cutoff with [poker card="kh"][poker card="kc"] and both Collopy and Chabra made the call from the button and big blind respectively. The flop fell [poker card="5d"][poker card="3c"][poker card="2d"] and when checked to him, Zinno put out a bet. Collopy made the call and Chabra folded. The turn was the [poker card="jd"] and Zinno open-shoved the rest of his stack. Collopy made the call and flipped over the [poker card="9d"][poker card="7d"] for the flush and Zinno was drawing dead to the [poker card="2h"] river. Zinno fell in fifth place and the three-time WPT champ earned $68,860 in the process. Dylan Linde was the next to move when he shipped his roughly 15 big blind stack from the small blind holding the [poker card="qc"][poker card="9c"]. He was quickly called by Collopy in the big blind holding [poker card="ah"][poker card="3h"]. The [poker card="ks"][poker card="9h"][poker card="4c"] flop was good for Linde who improved to a pair, leaving Collopy with the three aces as outs as well as running straight or flush cards. The turn was the [poker card="8h"] bringing in some backdoor possibilities for Collopy. The [poker card="as"] spiked on the river for Collopy which sent Linde out the door in fourth place for $95,530. The remaining players battled three-handed for the better part of three hours until an all in preflop clash sent the next player to the rail. Chabra limped the button holding [poker card="5h"][poker card="5c"]. From the small blind, Collopy put in a raise with the [poker card="ad"][poker card="td"] and Yilmaz folded the big blind. Chabra then three-bet jammed his remaining stack only to get snap called by Collopy. With the cards on their backs, the players saw a flop of [poker card="ac"][poker card="qd"][poker card="7c"], giving Collopy top pair and leaving Chabra looking for some serious help. The turn was the [poker card="3d"], leaving Chabra looking for a five to survive. The river was the [poker card="9s"], marking the end of the tournament for Chabra, who, settled for third place and a six-figure payday of $130,345. Collopy held a commanding lead for most of the first part of the heads up match and had multiple shots at closing it out, only to lose back-to-back crucial flips to Yilmaz. The duo trades blows for well over two hours, with both players having their opponent on the verge of elimination only for the other to spike the card they needed to stay alive. Finally, with the chip lead, Collopy raised from the button with [poker card="jd"][poker card="js"] and Yilmaz shipped his [poker card="ah"][poker card="7h"] on the button. The [poker card="as"][poker card="qs"][poker card="th"] flop put Yilmaz in the lead but left Collopy with outs. The turn was the [poker card="9d"] adding an open ender for Collopy, but the river was the [poker card="qd"] giving the hand to Yilmaz. After the chips were placed in Yilmaz' stack, he held 95% of the chips in play. On the very next hand, the pair put the chips in the middle again with Yilmaz spiking an ace on the river to complete the feat of winning two titles in a single season. Collopy was eliminated in second place, receiving $200,780 as a consolation. The score sends his lifetime recorded earnings north of $2 million. Yilmaz earned the $303,920 first-place prize, a new Hublot watch, and an extra $15,000 in lieu of a ticket to the Baccarat Crystal WPT Tournament of Champions, as he has already won a seat to that tournament earlier in the season. With the victory, Yilmaz takes the lead in the Hublot WPT Player of the Year race. WPT Rolling Thunder Final Table Payouts 1. Erkut Yilmaz - $303,920 2. Jim Collopy - $200,780 3.
