Sunday Million

When a Sunday wrap-up begins like this, you can't help but want to read it.

"Sometimes the avatars say it all. Thx4urm0n3y, sporting the angry orange visage of Donald Trump, crushed his heads-up opponent tomc1s, bearing an image of a tiny grey kitten peering at us from inside a container of Pringles."

That was Kristin Bihr's lede from last night's Sunday Million. You can read her full report here: Sunday Million: thx4urm0n3y rolls over final table en route to $145k win.

Here's how the final table players finished up.
