PokerStars weekend review (02-04-13)
It's been some Monday, let alone weekend, on PokerStars. This morning saw three players pocket more than $800,000 in the 7th Anniversary Sunday Million which pulled together a prize pool of close to $10,000,000. On top of that we've had the not-so-small matter of the 95 billionth hand dropping $122,030 onto a table of nine micro-stakes players!
Read on to get the skinny on the weekend's action.
* Following a three-way deal benislovas pipped British player David 'sexygee' Gent to the 7th Anniversary Sunday Million title and the $140,000 that had been set aside for the winner. Gent picked up $836,321.83 while third-place finisher Kasra84 pocketed $813,370. The $215 buy-in pulled in a field of 49,287 to create a prize pool of $9,857,400.
