OMGRubCasco wins the Sunday Million

Sunday's grind was going steadily for Uruguay's OMGRubCasco. He was plodding along in the Sunday Million, hovering around an average stack for nine-plus hours. But then something changed: the heater was well and truly switched on.

OMGRubCasco made the final table - which included Ryan "newguy89" McEathron - before eliminating six players on his way towards a Sunday Million title and a huge score worth $135,232.10.

Canada's shaundmaster finished second for $94,901.70, while McEathron would ultimately bow out in third for $66,599.

Common Cents Series kicks off with $0.01 $100K Gtd opener

We also saw the Common Cents Series get going on Sunday, with a huge $100K guaranteed event kicking things off. The buy-in for that one? Just one cent.

Congratulations then to Denykz of the Ukraine, who outlasted 72,479 runners to win $5,109.20, with no deal made. That's 510,920 times his investment. Quite a spin up.
