Despite a busy live tournament month, what with the EPT London and now the WSOP Europe, the action online was still as strong as ever at PokerStars for their big two weekly events. We will let you in on what happened with a brief look at both events and revealing who took home some big scores.
PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up
The first event we will be discussing from PokerStars yesterday is the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up, the second largest event at the site. It brought in 3,515 players creating a prize pool of $703,000 that again beat the $500,000 guarantee and meant that 540 players would be taking home a profit on their buy-in.
Once the final table of nine was reached, it was “gena1987vx” that held the lead after amassing a huge 10,034,956 chips, leaving a gap of around three million to the next closest player. However within two eliminations it was “Farzinem” that has climbed to the top of the tree.
He eventually finished in fourth though before the remaining three players of “smurfen22”, “OverTheTop43”, and “BitterAce12” came to an agreement regarding a deal. They locked up $82,821.80, $85,600.85 and $72,196.85 respectively and agreed to play out for the remaining $10,000.
After a brief display once the deal was made it was “smurfen22” that came out on top and took home a total of $92,821.80.

PokerStars Sunday Million
The largest weekly poker tournament found anywhere online is this PokerStars Sunday Million, with this week’s edition again attracting a huge field that contained many notable pros. Among the 7,243 players which created a prize pool of $1,448,600 were PokerStars Team Pros Jake Cody, Vanessa Rousso, George Danzer, Johnny Lodden, Eugene Katchalov and Adrienne Rowsome.
In fact none of them could make the final table with Rowsome coming the closest after finishing in 43rd. When that final table was made it was “keyhell” sitting the prettiest with 15,421,291 in chips but he could manage a 4th place finish in the end.
