Round up of latest results
He's a former Irish Open winner, and an EPT runner-up to boot. Now Kevin "Civell" Vandersmissen is a Sunday Million winner, after his performance worth $172,918.54 at the weekend.
As Martin Harris reported, it took more than ten hours to reach the final table, but only an hour to then find a winner, with no deal making it a good day for the Belgian. Read the full report here.
Elsewhere in the Warm-Up EvnomiYa was collecting a first prize of $79,822 ahead of a field of 2,526 players. The Russian has previously reached WCOOP and Super Tuesday final tables but this time went all the way. You can read David Aydt's report of the final table here.
Lastly there was action in the real world at the Hippodrome in London where the UKIPT Super Series event was won by Dale Garrad. We covered it from the start, which you can in its entirety here. Alternatively, skip to our event wrap for the highlights.

Coming up this week
The focus this week will be on ANZPT in Melbourne for a short time, before the European Poker Tour once more takes centre stage, albeit with the Italian Poker Tour tucked in between.
The EPT arrives in Malta this week, for the second time this year. It starts with the €25k High Roller on Friday, which in turn is followed by a €5,000 Main Event and a long list of side events to suit most bank rolls.
Before that the IPT kicks off its Main Event in Malta, starting on Wednesday, to be followed during the EPT festival with an IPT High Roller. Find details of that, and the entire EPT festival in Malta, on the EPT homepage.
Before all that though the ANZPT will come to a conclusion. As we reported last week it's the last ever ANZPT event, and looks set to go out in style. Follow the action for yourself on our coverage page, with the Melbourne festival coming to a close on Tuesday.
