ezynow00 wins Sunday Million
There's some inspiration to be had from this week's Sunday Million winner. As Jason Kirk reported, ezynow99's results up to now have shown a gradual improvement on his previous best result. That culminated last night with a Sunday Million win for a first prize of $144,000.
A story of hard work and a career defining win, which you can read about here.

The 2017 ACOP Main Event gets started today in Macau, but it's the conclusion of the Super High Roller that takes centre stage.
When play began earlier today Timothy Adams led an all-star final table line-up that included Steve O'Dwyer, Dietrich Fast, Jason Koon, Daniel Dvoress, Bryn Kenney and others. There's been plenty of play since then, and you can find live updates through to a winner on the PokerStars Blog.
That gets the week started on PokerStars. If we missed anything email us at email@example.com, or tweet us @PokerStarsBlog.
