A look at all the results on PokerStars this weekend.
Weekend highlights on PokerStars
* The Sunday Million returns as the big event of the weekend won this week by pejacpoker
* Down to six at Eureka Hamburg
It was back to normal this week in the Sunday Million. No more WCOOP special editions or high roller events to steal the limelight. Like that feeling you have when relatives finally pack up and go home after staying at your place for a couple of weeks, everything is back to how it was, just as we like it.
Pejacpoker was the player making the most of that transition, topping a field of 5,137 to earn a first prize of $146,000. As Kristin Bihr reported, the money involved can go from life improving to life changing very fast. The full result is below.

Eureka Hamburg reaches final table
They're down to six in the Eureka Hamburg Main Event, and as Howard Swains reports no one player has much room for manoeuvre. What six short stacks will mean when play resumes today is hard to say, except that it should be interesting. It'll start with Erik Scheidt doing his best to hang on to his chip lead.
