BIG WINS FOR CHIMKOVITCH, MATTSON AND BUCHANAN

For Anthony "OempaLoempah" Chimkovitch it was in the High Roller Club Sunday Warm-up. The former Super Tuesday winner from Belgium won $55,545, getting past the likes of pabritz in second, Connor "blanconegro" Drinan in third, and Mustapha "lasagnaaammm" Kanit who finished sixth.

Simon "C.Darwin2" Mattsson did the same in the HRC Omania HR event, collecting the title and $12,364. That was the best of three final tables. The Swede also finished second in the HRC Sunday Cooldown for $23,968, and eighth in the HRC Sunday HR for another $9,397. That event was won by Russian player DRONCHEK ($56,673).

Former PCA runner-up Shawn "Buck21" Buchanan won the NLO8 Sunday SuperSonic. The payout for first was slightly less than the HRC, amounting to $7,005. But Buchanan had to beat Niklas "Lena900" Åstedt heads-up to win it. That didn't exactly make things any easier.

Another familiar name also featured on the results sheet.

Two-time Sunday Million winner Peter "twirlpro" Turmezy scored another win in the High Roller Club. He took down the Sunday Super Sonic 6-Max Hyper Turbo for $46,128.
