Weekend highlights

* Nelson 'FeCoNiCuZn' Maccini wins the Sunday Million for $166,377
* m8675309a does the same in the Sunday warm-up

Round up of latest results

Australian FeCoNiCuZn took honours in the Sunday Million last night, topping a field of 5,866 runners to a substantial $166,377 first prize. FeCoNiCuZn had the momentum with about three tables remaining, which he kept throughout most of the final table. As Pauly McGuire reported, it was only heads up that his lead was challenged, wrestling the lead back from runner-up königkunde.

In the Warm-Up a five way deal brought things to a close, with m8675309a taking the biggest share worth more than $58,000. Chris "ImDaNuts" Oliver would finish fourth, which you can read in David Aydt's report. The full results from each event are below.
