Weekend highlights on PokerStars
* Sebastian Malec wins the EPT Barcelona Main Event after qualifying for €27
*Matt "VegasDietz" Dietrich wins the Sunday Million after a four-way deal
The Sunday Million might not have been the main headline for the week, but this weej's winner Matt "VegasDietz" Dietrich might feel otherwise. As Kristin Bihr reported for the PokerStars Blog, Dietrich arrived at the final table with 13 big blinds, but turned that into a first prize of $122,000 after a four way deal. It makes for essential reading.
Here's the full result.

There's not much I can add here to the extensive coverage from Barcelona this past two weeks, which only ended in the early hours of this morning. Suffice to say the last ever EPT Barcelona (before the PokerStars Championship comes into being) provided all the stories we'd hoped for, and a winner in Sebastian Malecwho won't be forgotten any time soon.
