PokerStars players don’t take a break. That much is clear.
If there was ever a time to do it, it would be after the two and half weeks of the World Championship of Online Poker. After 45 events and marathon nights, we all would’ve understood if everybody just took a weekend to rest. Instead, we saw another big weekend of action in some of the world’s biggest weekly tournaments.
Early action saw another Team PokerStars Pro making it deep in a big event. Alex Gomes, one of everybody’s favorite Brazilians, made it to the final table of the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up, prompting another round of “Vamoooooooooo” screams from the rail. In the end, he couldn’t quite make it to the end and finished in eighth place.
Top honors in the Sunday Warm-Up went to KenT351 who picked up more than $100,000 for the victory. David Aydt has the story here: KenT351 locks up a win, Team PokerStars Pro Gomes 8th.
Just a little bit later in the night, the Sunday Million came back from its WCOOP hiatus and crowned its latest champion. More than 7,500 people showed up for the big one and eventually handed top money–$189,233–to nomaddman.

This weekend also hosted the end-of-month Battle of the Planets Triple Shootout. This month’s biggest honors go to the awesomely named “so awful” out of Amsterdam. For a full report on his win, check out David Aydt’s report so awful, anything but….
As always, there were a couple dozen other huge tournaments with big winners. For a full look at the this week’s big results check out the 9-27-09 PokerStars Sunday Tournament results page.
We’ll always keep you updated with the latest online action, but be sure keep your eyes here over the next week and half. The biggest ever EPT London kicks off in just a couple of days. Even we longtime PokerStars blog correspondents barely know what to expect, so it should be interesting.
Good luck to all of this week’s winners.Back to Top
