PokerStars weekend review 8-12-12

ps_news_thn.jpgAn epic weekend has just passed. Not only did London 2012 set a Olympics personal best but the @PokerStars Twitter account almost broke the 100,000 follower barrier (it's really close) and NURLAN81 of Kazakhstan took the top prize of $244,979.24, which amounts to around 37 years of the average annual salary in the Turkic state according to our hastily cobbled together calculations. BrynKenney wasn't far behind in 7th ($25,721.85).


And, of course, there were all the usual big field tournaments playing out across the weekend with Switzerland and Poland taking the major honours:

Sunday Million: BeN-Cls surges to the finish, banks $191k
Sunday Warm-Up: Poland takes home the gold, surud claims $88K
And you can see all of the big weekend tournament results here

And it's not too late to get involved in our #PS100K celebrations.
