Sunday Million

Are things now returning to normal after two months of poker in Las Vegas? They just might be, and the first signs of that came this weekend, when 6,073 players entered the Sunday Million to create a prize pool in excess of $1.2 million.

As Martin Harris reported, it took a heads up battle of more than two hours before eightndeuce wrapped things up against chess87. But that effort was worth more than $162,000 to the Canadian.

Here's that result in full.

MicroMillions12

Meanwhile MicroMillions continues, with 17 new winners since we signed off on Friday. The biggest of those was Event #34, a hold'em re-buy tournament, won by babaroga217 of Austria, who earned $18,454. But whichever way you look at it, with prizes so high and buy-ins so small, every winner scored big.

Here's the full list of weekend MicroMillions winners:
