LITHUANIA'S "benasg" WINS SUNDAY MILLION FOR $129K
The $109 Milly's $1M guaranteed prize pool was smashed once again yesterday. A total of 13,228 entries generated $1.32M in prizes, and after almost 15 hours of play it was Lithuania's "benasg" who was the last player standing.
Taking it down with no deal, "benasg" banked $129,213 while runner-up "Barkieboy NL" won $93,762. PokerStars Ambassadors Liv Boeree and Igor Kurganov both made the money, finishing 542nd and 1,338 respectively.
EPT BARCELONA AND EPT OPEN MADRID ANNOUNCED
PokerStars made an exciting announcement over the weekend, revealing two new live stops in Spain for 2019.
EPT Barcelona returns to Casino Barcelona from August 20 - September 1, but before that we'll be heading to the capital for the EPT Open Madrid. The brand new stop kicks off at Casino Gran Madrid on June 22 and will run for nine days, marking PokerStars' first EPT event in the Spanish capital since EPT Grand Final Madrid in 2011. The full schedule will include a €1,100 buy-in Main Event.
Players can qualify online for both events at PokerStars.com, PokerStars.es and PokerStars.fr in the coming months.
