Before you head out for your New Year’s Eve celebrations, why not catch up on all the weekend’s action on PokerStars?
• Big scores for Connor Drinan and Patrick Leonard
• “erickie” wins SUNDAY MILLION for $151K
• Great Saturday for Fintan and Spraggy
• Weekly flagship winners
• Biggest Winter Series results
• All High Roller Club results
With Christmas out the way and New Year’s celebrations still to come, many of the biggest names in the game settled in for online sessions over the weekend.
That proved to be a great idea for Connor “blanconegro” Drinan, who took down one of the biggest Winter Series tournaments. Drinan outlasted a 382-player field in the $2,100 Sunday Warm-Up PKO, banking $69,830 plus an additional $60,199 in bounties.

Drinan also finished fifth in the $2,100 Sunday High Roller for $16,368.
The winner of that High Roller was Patrick Leonard, who claimed the trophy and $46,837. PokerStars Team Pro Liv Boeree also made the final table, ultimately falling in ninth for $6,554.
Leonard also had a runner-up finish in the Winter Series $530, adding $66,018 to his weekend total.

While Drinan’s $130K weekend came close, the biggest winner of the weekend was the winner of the SUNDAY MILLION.
The Netherlands’ “erickie” came out on top this week, winning $151K after outlasting the 5,597 field. That may be a massive score, but it’s not “erickie”s biggest.
Back in 2011, “erickie” won a $109 WCOOP event for $163K.
Liv Boeree wasn’t the only Team Pro battling on the virtual felt this weekend.
Fintan and Spraggy
Saturday saw big results for both Fintan Hand and Ben Spragg, the latter of which was “testing himself” on the High Roller streets. After what was no doubt a tough grind, Spraggy ended up finishing fourth in the High Roller Club $530 Daily 500 for $4,689.
Today we mixed it up with the best the High Roller Club @PokerStars had to offer. 4th place in an insanely tough field for nearly $4,700! Had so much fun testing myself against the elite and broke the viewership record on the channel. Over 5000 concurrent viewers! Thank you all! pic.twitter.com/zUjwyPAL1d

Meanwhile Hand managed to bag himself another trophy. He took down the $215 Saturday Bounty Builder.
