Weekend Review: And the award goes to...
While it would be easy to find some sort of Oscar's analogy to accompany this week's results round up, I'm not really that clever, or tuned into popular culture in any way. Suffice to say that we'll leave the dramatics to the professionals and stick to cold hard numbers in this week's Weekend Review, headlined by a win for TheFan83 in the Sunday Million. There were other winners of course, and you can find out more by reading on...

As Jason Kirk reported table side, it was 2011 when TheFan83 was last heads-up for a major PokerStars title, that being for a WCOOP title worth $206,000. Well he put that right in the early hours of this morning, taking the top share of a three way deal and a first Sunday Million title.
