Weekend Review: Viking8844 pillages Sunday Million while APPT ends in Macau
A brief look at all the major stories from this past weekend on PokerStars.
The weekend highlight
-- Viking8844 wins the Sunday Million earning $178,000
-- Jian Guo Sun wins the APPT Main Event in Macau
Big results from the weekend
A pretty big weekend for PokerStars as the Sunday Million returned after three weekends of SCOOP, and the Asia Pacific Poker Tour event in Macau came to a close, both featuring big prize pools.
The former was won by Viking8844 at a final table which, as Martin Harris reported, contained some fearsome opposition.
Meanwhile nearly a week of coverage from Macau tells the story of Juan Guo Sun's win in the APPT. Our reporting team of Howard Swains and Brad Kain told the full story each day, culminating in the final table report, which you can read here.
Here are those two results in full.
