The major online poker websites Poker Stars.com and Full Tilt Poker.com continued to attract large numbers to Sunday tournaments this week, generating impressive prize pools and high value prizes to the winners.
At Poker Stars, Peter "twirlpro" Turmezy took down the top prize of almost $200 000, with his heads up opponent ‘fratzl' also taking home a six-figure paycheck worth some $132 176. The Sunday Millions tourney in which they competed attracted an entry field of 8 001 players, up 246 from the week prior, and generated a prize pool of $1.6 million.
Full Tilt's $750 000 Guaranteed event also recorded increased entries with 3 668 sign-ups, but this still did not make the guarantee and FT had to put up the $16 400 balance. David "Doc Sands" Sands faced ‘andressoprano' in the heads up, winning the event to claim the $132 787 first-place prize. His opponent collected a check for $80 250 for his second placing.
