Weekend Review: A long list of winners...
The weekend is over leaving in its trail a long list of winners, some of whom are featured here.
Weekend highlights on PokerStars
• Apekatt666 of Norway wins the Sunday Million and a first prize of $100,722 after a five-way deal.
As Jason Kirk reported this week, the Sunday Million was all about the deal this weekend, a five-way one to be specific, from which the eventual winner took $100,722. That figure, as big as it is, meant for the first time in, well, a long time, the Sunday Million winner wasn't the highest earner of the weekend (more on that later) although as the results below show it was fourth placed CherryOnTop who earned the biggest chunk of the deal, which you could say was the cherry on top.

As alluded to a moment ago, it wasn't the Sunday Million winner who topped the pay-outs this weekend. Instead that went to edg40, who won the Sixth Anniversary edition of the Sunday Storm, which had a guaranteed prize pool of $1 million. That meant a first prize of $107.731.
