While watching the Super Bowl last night and trying to figure out how I took the wrong side of almost every bet (I correctly picked who would take the first timeout), I checked my Twitter feed to see David Aydt's status updates blowing up about "Liv Boeree"-this and "Liv Boeree"-that. After making sure he wasn't deep in the Captain Morgan again, I determined that Team PokerStars Pro Liv Boeree was doing something of note.
Turns out, Boeree decided to go deep and win the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up yesterday. She won nearly $150,000 after defeating James "mig.com" Mackey heads-up for the title (Sorry, James, but, go Tigers anyway). Aydt managed to get the full story written up in this piece: Liv Boeree defeats Mackey heads-up for Sunday Warm-Up title and $147K.
Other news? Sure there was. Marin06 won nearly a quarter-million bucks in the Sunday Million, and our old buddy Shane "Shaniac" Schleger won th $109 rebuy. Quite a weekend, Super Bowl or not.
If you'd like to check in on everybody else who booked big wins this weekend, have a look at our 2-6-11 PokerStars Sunday tournament results.
Congrats to Liv, Marin06, Shane, and all of the other big winners from the weekend. Seeya next week.
