BIG WINS FOR BONOMO AND VAN ZADELHOFF
Just as it does every week, the High Roller Club (HRC) produced some high-profile winners over the weekend.
Justin "ZeeJustin" Bonomo
Justin Bonomo was the biggest HRC winner across Saturday and Sunday, taking down the coveted $2,100 Sunday HR title for $53,673. Bonomo -- poker's all-time leading money winner ($44 million live) -- defeated Austria's "WATnlos" heads-up, having already outlasted a tough final table including Andras "probirs" Nemeth, Kristen "krissyb24" Bicknell, and Sami "Lrslzk" Kelopuro.
Steven van Zadelhoff: the Dutch Viking
Just behind Bonomo's score was 2017 World Championship of Online Poker Main Event champion Steven van Zadelhoff, who emerged victorious in the $1,050 Sunday Warm-Up for $53,445. That finale included Sweden's "Greenstone25" and the UK's Chris "NigDawG" Brammer, and ended with van Zadelhoff beating Uruguay's "kofi89" heads-up.

Not gonna lie... pretty proud of this one! 😎😋 Still down a ton on these, but at least it feels like the work i'm doing is creating some momentum.
There is a saying about heat and a kitchen, and i'm still not sure if it's smart to go for the varience, but it feels good :) pic.twitter.com/JJqmgi5ffM
ROMANIA'S "CoriACE777" WINS SUNDAY MILLION FOR $99K
The Sunday Million continues to pull in big numbers, creating huge value for just a $109 buy-in. Yesterday saw 11,559 runners build a $1.15 million prizepool, with $117,570 reserved for the champ.
However, for the first time since the buy-in dropped from $215 to $109, this Sunday saw a deal made. Romania's "CoriACE777" would ultimately take it down for $99,888 following a three-handed deal with Poland's "koyotus" (2nd - $76,066) and Brazil's "DIFINI" (3rd - $88,839).
SECOND STEPS: STRATEGY TIPS FOR MONOPOLY
Sunday is the time of the week many of us get together with friends and family for dinner, drinks, conversation, and certainly in some competitive households, a game.
That's why we thought it would be the perfect time to drop some Monopoly knowledge on you.
It's not going to make you any more popular with your family, but if you're going to play Monopoly, you might as well play it better. PokerStars Blog's Howard Swains took a look at some strategy tips to help you raise your game.
