SitPro2011 wins Sunday Million
Half the prize and twice as fast. Well not quite on that second part. But the action was quick at the final table this week as Jason Kirk reported for the Blog. The eventual winner was Brazilian player SitPro2011, who logged off a short time ago with a whopping $197,162 for the win. As the result chart below showed, the top three players walked away with six figures.
