PokerStars weekend review (5-27-12)

ps_news_thn.jpgSCOOP is gone. The LAPT main event is Punta del Este is over. The World Series has yet to get underway. This should be a time we can all take a breath and collect our thoughts. Instead, we decided to dive right back in to the PokerStars weekend majors. And why not, right? This is where all the champions of those big series really get their experience anyway.

This was the last weekend of May, which meant a ton of big stories as people looked to close strong on the month. The best story out there this weekend was Brazilian diegokeep's chance at redemption. It's barely been a few weeks since he almost won the Sunday Million but ended up finishing in the runner-up spot. This weekend, he did himself one better and notched the title.

Here are the biggest stories from the past couple of days.

  • Sunday Million: diegokeep drums up a $196k win
  • Sunday Warm-up: orange6 pounces on the final table for victory
  • Battle of the Planets: danhp134 chops up the win, Team Online's Dominguez 4th place
  • Cosita Rica captures May 27 Women's Sunday title
