Weekend Review: A win for lazrom on pleasingly vanilla weekend
Relax everybody. Sunday has returned to normal. As we wrote on Friday, this weekend just gone was a return to normality, as SCOOP ended and the summer approached. Life was simple again. A big weekend on poker culminating with the Majors on Sunday.
And so it went. The sun came up, the Sunday Million began, the sun went down, and lazrom, from Sweden, logged off in the early hours of Monday with a first prize of $151,210.51 after a three way chop. Kristin Bihr has the full story, which you can read here.
Prior to that was the Sunday Warm-Up. As David Aydt reported, the summer is a time when distractions in the Nevada desert keep a lot of players off line. Yet they still come in their thousands. This week it was Dr_Drey15 earning top spot and a first prize of $79,000.
Box scores for both events are below.

Elsewhere there was plenty going on. Daragh "Daragh999" Davey got a result in the Sunday Kickoff, winning that for $20,758. Russian player vovtroy was in winning form again, picking up a modest $1,028 in the weekly Badugi, while xx23xx won the Women's Sunday for $2,150. The biggest winner from outside the two majors was wizowizo, the username of super star Ole Schemion, who won the Sunday 500. That was worth more than $64,000 to the German. That'll buy a lot of balloons.

Congratulations to all of this weekend's winners, with commiserations who woke up this morning still ruing how things didn't go as well as planned. Take heart in the fact that there is always a new fresh weekend just a few days away.
In the meantime good luck at the tables this week.
