Weekend highlights on PokerStars
• Admiral19793 wins the Sunday Million and a first prize of $153,203
It was all aboard another Sunday Million yesterday, this week won by Admiral19793 who must surely now be deserving of a promotion to Admiral of the Fleet (19793).
As Kristen Bihr reported for the PokerStars Blog, this one was a battle between two big stacks, that of the Admiral's and German player GrekoGreg. With no deal in place it went to the wire, as you can read here.
