  8. Sunday was supposed to be a big day for partypoker with the conclusion of their recently relaunched partypoker MILLION.

The path to a near-victory for the live cash game player was quite impressive. "It was pretty funny because with 12 people left, I was second in chips," Lipp said. "Then, I lost close to my whole stack with A-K to K-K, so I was 12/12 and thought my dream was over, but I managed to make a comeback with my five b

  13. Who says cash game players - especially those who focus on heads-up games - can't steamroll tournaments? They typically swim with the sharks, and fish, during major tournaments and, as one interviewee put it, "go for the glory."

"I'm feeling pretty awesome. I don't play many tournaments at all anymore, so to have a run in such a big field feels satisfying," said 'buriedatsea'. A big field indeed.

  16. Last month, Germany's KingKong0815(pictured) was part of a three-way chop of the PokerStars Sunday Million and put back $165,000, officially taking third place. "I'm pretty stoked," he told PocketFives in an exclusive interview. "It still feels pretty unreal." Unreal like watching a giant ape climb the Empire State Building? The cash accounts for nearly all of his winnings in his PocketFives profile, so not surprisingly, he plans to refresh his bankroll and invest in non-poker activities with his newfound riches. He wanted to chop four-handed, but fellow PocketFiver bazeman wasn't up for
