money_hunte wins Sunday Million

As Jason Kirk put it in this weekend's Sunday Million report, "the typical journey for a short-stacked player at a Sunday Million final table ends almost as soon as it begins". Well, this weekend things were a little different.

Which is exactly what money_hunte proved, going from the short stack to this week's Sunday Million winner after a five-way deal that netted him nearly $92,000. You can see the full result, and click through to read the final table report, below.

"In the last seven days, James survived surgery and Joe coped with cupping, so the boys are on hand to break down hands from the latest episode of #PSCMonteCarlo (now available to watch at channel4.com/poker in the UK & Ireland, and on PokerStars.tv in the rest of the world). They also discuss the book 'He Played For His Wife And Other Stories', a collection of poker-themed tales from writers such as Jennifer Tilly, James McManus and Patrick Marber. Barny Boatman also contributed a story, and is this week's guest. He talks about writing 'Drawing Dead', and his long, distinguished career as a poker player and ambassador.

"Finally, regular #PokerStarsTV viewer James Martin (aka: Undersea Monkey) competes for prizes by answering questions about 'The West Wing' in 'Superfan vs Stapes'. Please don't forget to rate, review and subscribe to #PokerInTheEars."
