Weekend Review: Negreanu crushing $300K, Sunday majors get back to normal

We can't start a review of this weekend without just a quick note to say...

What the hell, Danny?

Daniel Negreanu goes into Aria yesterday to play the $300,000 Super Higher Roller Bowl in Vegas and comes out with a chip lead so big it's almost funny.

With 31 of the 47 entries left in the event headed to Day 2, the Kid has 1.6 million in chips. The next place down--a SUPER-HOT-RUNNING Jason Koon--has 900K. The average stack is 464K.

Negreanu may not have won the tournament yesterday, but he certainly won the right to say he's a chip leader by a country mile.

Now, a look at the big results from the Sunday Majors on PokerStars.

The Sunday Million

Nocz_joker won the Sunday Million now as the Sunday Majors returned to their usual schedule after SCOOP. The win was worth $172,000 to the Czech, who secured a wire to wire final table win in less than two hours. Jason Kirk had the report, which you can read here.
