PokerStars Sunday tournament results (2-22-09)
Is this month nearly at its end?
With only 28 days to its name, February is one of those months where the big Last Sunday of the Month seems to come around a lot faster than normal.
And so, on just the 22nd day of the month, we saw the big end-of-month action, including the normal Sunday Million, Sunday Warm-Up, the Turbo Takedown, and the the Battle of the Planets Triple Shootout.
Biggest honors (and money) of the day went to cmyworth who banked more than $212,000 in the Sunday Million. When that much money is at stake, it's pretty common to see people cut deals at the final table. Apparently cmyworth decided to make good on his name and took first place outright.

If it's the last Sunday of the month, that means we have the 5,000-FPP PokerStars Turbo Takedown to enjoy. The final six players in that event decided to lock in their big wins early and cut a deal that gave all of them something to tell their friends about on Monday. In the end, out of 11,205 players, annanoplay took the top spot for a post-deal payout of $70,457.26.
