Another Sunday is in the books with millions being paid out to thousands of players. Who won the biggest chunks of those millions? Let’s kick off the Sunday Report this week by taking a look at the biggest weekly tournament on the internet, the Sunday Million on Poker Stars.

This week saw 6,993 entrants each putting up $215 in the search for an enormous score. Unlike last week, there were no deals made, and heads-up became essentially a sit n’ go for nearly six figures. At the end of it all, jotaele1 won the tournament, and nearly $200k to go along with it.

Full Tilt Poker’s big weekly tournament, the $216 $750k Guaranteed, once again had an overlay with only 3,603 players showing up. However, there was still a great deal of money at stake, as six figures awaited the eventual winner. LagTart, also known as cashtorg on Poker Stars, was without a doubt the most decorated player at the final table, with numerous five-figure scores on Full Tilt in 2008, including a $66k cash in March. Unfortunately for him, he collected only half of that amount yesterday, falling in 5th for $31,050. Robbieoz was the winner, taking down $132,788.

For the third time this year, nordlending won the $5,200 freezeout on Poker Stars, this time winning it for $80k, as 16 of the toughest players showed up. Even more amazing is the fact that he won it not even a month ago, taking it down on May 4th for $100k.

The Sunday Warm-Up on Poker Stars has become increasingly popular over the months, attracting nicely sized fields, and lifting first place to over six-figures every week. This week was no different, of course, with 3,039 players showing up for the $215 $500k Guaranteed tournament, and creating a first place prize of $104,967. Also as usual, were some talented players showing up at the final table. S00tedj0kers and sandler1860 are two up and comers in the online tournament circuit, both posting great results this year, thus far. All_in_at420 is already known as a formidable foe, with a multitude of big final tables under his belt as well. IDOLLS was the big winner in this tournament however, besting s00tedj0kers heads-up.
