Once again, another monstrous day of Sunday Majors is in the books, with a new tournament on Poker Stars, the return of the Turbo Takedown, more dominance from perhaps the best player online, and on top of all of that, one of the greatest Sunday performances, ever.

Let’s kick it off with the biggest tournament of the week. The final Sunday Million of a month used to be either $530, or $1050 at the end of the month, depending on which month it took place in. However, that has been done way with, and will always be a $215 event. Poker Stars has added a $530, 250k event to replace that, and we’ll get to that in a bit. The story of this final table had to be KtheKing. Not only did he take third in this, garnering over $90k with the chop, but he final table three other tournaments on Poker Stars yesterday, all extremely formidable, with stiff competition in each. He final tabled both of the $100 rebuys yesterday, taking 7th in the afternoon, and 2nd in the evening, for about $35k between those. How much more could he do? How about taking 8th in the new $530 250k for $12k. Simply amazing performance by KtheKing, final tabling some of the toughest tournaments online, period. However, that’s not to take anything away from rythman, or tapatapa, as both players took away six figure scores after the three-way chop, and after outlasting the field of 6,745 players. $30k was left on the table after the chop, which rythman came away with.

1. rythman: $137,254
2. tapatapa: $139,726
3. KtheKing: $90,758
4. Hasuwisp: $56,658

Speaking of the $530 250k, we’re going to touch on that next. Poker Stars has just recently implemented this, and long-term details are not known, as of yet. But, it did kick off with a huge bang yesterday, bringing out 1,074 players, and creating a tough table. Some notable players were there, such as kingsofcards, and of course KtheKing, making yet another final table, as previously mentioned. Final tabling alongside of him was Rizen, who was also present at his evening $100 rebuy final table. Unfortunately, none of these players were able to come away with the biggest score, as just1cool and HoldemKy5 made a deal heads-up that left both with comparable scores.

SN8WMAN and mattyv, better known as Plattsburgh, were the toughest competition at the final table. Mattyv mustered the best finish, coming up just short, but still coming away with $80,250.

The $5.2k freezeout on Poker Stars only attracted 13 players this week. However, it was won outright by one of the best players online, if not the world, in Issac “westmenloAA” Baron, for an astounding $65k. Issac continues to prove why he is so highly regarded online, amassing big score after big score.

David “Bakes” Baker has been on a roll for the past year, constantly hitting it big, cashing big in 100 rebuys, and high stakes freezeouts across several sites. He’s known as WhooooKidd on Poker Stars, and  comes as no surprise that he cashed in big, in the $215 500k guaranteed, Sunday Warm-Up on Poker Stars. He took a chop three-handed, guaranteeing himself a solid cash.
