* tzeskobar wins the Sunday Million
* Wins for Peters and Geshkenbein bring the ACOP festival to a close


Sunday Million

We came close to history being made in the Sunday Million this weekend. As Kristin Bihr reported, only ten people in the history of the event have won it twice, and as the denouement approached in the early hours of Monday morning Bernardo "bedias" Diaz held hopes of being the eleventh. But tzeskobar ruined that, denying Dias at the heads-up stage. Not that tzeskobar will lose much sleep over it, picking up $149,645 for the win (Dias's consolation was $105,014).

Here's the full result:

It seemed everything happened this weekend at ACOP. The festival came to a close with results coming from every direction. The winner's photos looked eerily familiar too.

You can catch up on all the updates from our live coverage on the Blog by clicking here. But the highlights from the weekend were undoubted the win for Vladimir Geshkenbein in the Main Event and for David Peters in the High Roller, two results which wrapped up a long and eventful festival.

That wraps up another weekend of results and news on PokerStars. As always send your questions and comments to us on Twitter: @PokerStarsBlog.
