It has been a busy few weeks for all of the live tournament players out there recently but the weekend is always the turn of the online players to have a chance at some serious money. The PokerStars Sunday schedule once again brought many tournaments culminating in the two largest in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up and Sunday Million.
We will take you through each of those events where you will be happy to see that a British player won the latter of those tournaments.
The first of the two big Sunday Tournaments at PokerStars was that of the Sunday Warm-Up which attracted 3,289 players all looking to enjoy a big score on the weekend. 495 of those would earn a share of the $657,800 prize pool which easily broke the $500k guarantee.
Once the event was whittled down to the final table of nine it was “GOGOGOGO#1” that was leading the chip counts with a total of 8,048,569. He was looking good for the title and even made it to heads up against “emran86” with that lead.
However, that lead lasted just a single hand during heads up and he never managed to get it back. The final hand saw “GOGOGOGO#1” try to bluff with an all in bet but his opponent held the 5c-6c on the board of 5h-3h-9c-2s-5d to claim the title and payout of $103,275,68.

The Sunday Million once again smashed the $1 million prize pool guarantee after a field of 7,133 players brought a true figure of $1,426,600 to be shared among the top 1,080 finishers.
The event was a very close run thing by the time the final table of nine was established with there being three players with 10 million plus. “SSSMBRFC2/C” was leading with 14,555,360 but he would eventually fall out of the event in 4th place.
Heads up saw the British player Rob “robitinnion” Tinnion take on “kalidonios” with the former having more than double the chips of his opponent in the beginning. This never changed and just eight hands into the session all of the chips were in the middle.
Tinnion was holding the Ac-Qd whilst his opponent had the Ad-8d. When the board fell it came as the 4h-2c-Ks-7h-3s and Tinnion was now the winner with a hefty payout of $213,994,70.
