PokerStars Sunday tournament results (8-2-09)

ps_news_thn.jpgI haven't been able to find a calendar that shows this specifically, but I'm fairly certain we are smack dab in the middle of the dog days of summer.

If you're not familiar with the dog days (a concept that goes back to the Romans), it is that time in the northern hemisphere's summer during which we experience the hottest days, and, if you're to believe the old timers, you'll almost certainly drown if you go swimming. Fortunately, there's something else to do on these hot August weekend. Specifically, you can win a ton of money playing on PokerStars.

Not even 12 hours ago, Russia's Sosnoviy managed to edge out his countryman and the rest of the world in the PokerStars Sunday Million. Sosnoviy beat out nearly 8,000 other players to win more than $236,000. For a full recap, check out Jen Newell's 8-2-09 Sunday Million report.

Just a few hours before than, vluff (in a decidedly cooler Canada) took down the Sunday Warm-Up. That tourney, which saw Team PokerStars Pro Maria Mayrinck make a run for the final table, was worth more than $134,000 to vluff. You can see the whole story on David Aydt's 8-2-09 Sunday Warm-Up report.

Congratulations to all of this week's big winners. And remember WCOOP starts one month from today!
