ROMANIA'S "luigy666" WINS SUNDAY MILLION FOR $108K
It took 14 hours and 14 minutes for the $109 Sunday Million to get from 10,360 entries down to just one. When all was said and done, it was Romania's "luigy666" who came out on top, banking a massive $108,192.
There was no deal made, meaning the runner-up finisher, Croatia's "QTsN€v€rF0ld", earned $77,787. The final table also included Latvia's poker@luffyD (7th - $14,947).
This isn't "luigy666"'s first taste of Sunday success, having taken down the $22 Mini Sunday Million back in March 2018 for $21,200. We'd have to look into it, but this might make "luigy666" the first player to have won both editions of the Milly. "luigy666" has now eclipsed their previous biggest score, $68,322 from a 2011 WCOOP final table.
HUGE SUNDAY FOR ANDRAS "PROBIRS" NEMETH
While the High Roller Club always shines a light on some of poker's best online players, it was Super High Roller regular Andras "probirs" Nemeth who shone brightest on Sunday.

To kick things off, Nemeth took down the prestigious $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $50,695, outlasting a formidble final table which included current world no.1 Niklas "Lena900" Åstedt (4th - $22,966), Sami "Lrslzk" Kelopuro (6th - $13,547), long-time crusher "€urop€an" (7th - $10,404), and Conor "1_conor_b_1" Beresford (8th - $7,990).
Nemeth also final tabled the $1,050 Daily Warm-Up, finishing fifth for $6,614. To cap things off, Nemeth placed second in the $2,100 Sunday Cooldown for a cool $18,059. Simon "C. Darwin2" Mattsson took that one down for $23,504.
"DAY SAVER" FOR FINTAN "easywithaces" HAND
PokerStars Ambassador Fintan "easywithaces" Hand has been on a tear of late, securing his biggest score last week. However, Sunday wasn't going so well for him.

Thankfully for Hand, his final run of the day provided some financial relief:
Nice little day saver and then some for the lads. Will be back online at just after 16.00 CET tomorrow. Love a bit of poker when you're winning. pic.twitter.com/0EscSGVQql— Fintan Hand (@EasyWithAces) March 18, 2019
