PokerStars Sunday tournament results 3-8-09

ps_news_thn.jpgThis was one of those weekends that we needed a 24-hour cable news network instead of just a blog. Between the performances of Team PokerStars Pro and and the huge Sunday winners, there was more news than we even knew what to do with.

First off, huge congratulations to Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Rousso for her runner-up finish at the NBC Heads Up Poker Championship in Las Vegas (we'll have more on that in just a bit). Also, big kudos to Team PokerStars Pros Andre Akkari and Lee Nelson for final table finishes in a couple PokerStars Sunday majors. Nelson took seventh place in the $215 rebuy event yesterday. Akkari placed ninth in the $109 rebuy.

We also can't let the morning go by without congratulating PokerStars player marky_crash for making two final tables on Sunday. He took fifth in the $215 Pot Limit Omaha H/L tournament and fourth in the $215 Mixed Hold'em event. Nice work, sir.

TheGoingRate picked up more than $130,000 for a first place finish in the Sunday Million. He beat out more than 8,100 players in the victory. You can find a full final table wrap-up here: Victory and $132,081.79 was TheGoingRate for the 3/8/09 Edition of the Sunday Million.

A little bit earlier in the night, PokerStars player viksha took down a $108,000 victory in the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up. For full details on how it happened, see: viksha rolls over final table in Sunday Warm-up win
