Lots of big names won last Sunday, as poker players prepared to break on Monday for the NCAA basketball championship.
High stakes cash game player Vaga_Lion took home the gold in the Poker Stars Sunday Million for a cool $216,576. He beat out a tough final table including 6th place finisher and top 100 tournmanet player johne147, who won $33,800 for his efforts. JSD1000 took down the Sunday Second Chance for $50,404, and piahott won the Sunday Warm-Up for $115,433. Unknown player named texpert took down the Sunday winner-take-all-freezeout for the standard $100,000.
Meanwhile on Full Tilt, Lee “acumen53” Childs, whose name you may recognize from the 2007 WSOP Main Event final table, received 1st place in the Full Tilt 750k guaranteed for $132,788. Chump change compared to the near million dollars he won in 2007, but a solid score nonetheless. On Party Poker, TheSpider took down the 300k guaranteed for $64,779. On UltimateBet, rockets_Ifold swept through a super tough final table for a $45,000 top prize. High stakes cash game player tcblade got third for $18,000, and team wafflecrush member THAY3R received 9th for $2,000. Finally, on Bodog’s 100k guaranteed dippydough took the $25,000 score.
Congratulations to all the winners this week!
