PokerStars Sunday Tournament results (11-23-08)
Star-studded weekend rattles PokerStars Sunday majors
There were very few places you could be that wouldn't be considered "late" when the biggest story of the weekend happened. It was after 4am ET when two members of Team PokerStars got heads up in the PokerStars Sunday 500. Andre Akkari and Gavin Griffin went head-to-head in a tough heads-up battle. It took a pretty serious cooler to end it.
Akkari won the event for more than $90,000. Griffin's second place finish earned him a little more than $66,000.
You, like me, might have thought that would be the only big story of the weekend. We both would've been wrong. That same night, online and live phenom Danny "THE__D__RY " Ryan went and won the Sunday Million for nearly $190,000. Not only is Danny known as a great guy and great player, he was recently voted Best PokerStars Qualifier at the European Poker Tour's EPT Awards. Congrats, Danny, on a great score.
Add to that, there were nearly a couple dozen other big events going on at PokerStars. Quite a weekend, indeed.

Congratulations to all the winners. See you next week!
