Sunday Million

It was a good one this week. As Jason Kirk reported for the PokerStars Blog, it was a corker of a finale in this week’s Sunday Million between toddxxx and stormi22. They had a good long scrap to determine the winner, with toddxxx prevailing and taking a first prize of $161,777 (albeit after a three-way deal). Get the full result (and a link to the full story) below.

World Series of Poker

The Main Event plays on in Las Vegas, with the field now stripped to just three tables. That means just 27 players in with a shot of that first prize of more than $8 million.

Fuelled by coffee, and whatever else they can still stomach from the Starbucks on the walk to the Rio convention centre, our reporting team of Howard Swains and Martin Harris are still slogging away court side bring all the stories (or at least those they can see from the side-lines).

There are too many stories to list here. It’s easier if you click this link, where you’ll find our complete WSOP 2017 archive. You could do a lot worse than spending the next hour reading everything there is from this summer’s tournament. That is unless your desk is overlooked by your boss, in which case we suggest leaving it until lunch.


It is the tournament series designed for everyone, particularly those with bankrolls of the more modest kind (that goes for us too). MicroMillions started this weekend with the first of more than 100 events on the schedule.

I could cut and paste all the details from the MicroMillions homepage but it’s probably easier if you visit the page yourself. In the meantime check out results from the opening events.
