Sunday Briefing

Another Sunday grind has passed. The PokerStars Sunday Million was back to a $1 million guarantee but the premier weekly event enjoyed another boosted field. Jose Carlos "TryToExploit" Garcia earned the top prize of the week taking down $230,707 after a heads-up chop in a rare star-studded Sunday Million.

The top player out of Canada this week was serial final-tablist "a$$ou" who finished runner-up in the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $59,723. "S_Dot11" shipped the Full Tilt Super Sized Sunday for $39,624, "SubtleBadger" came 3rd in the Full Tilt $250K GTD for $26,182, Michael "mossified" Skomac final-tabled the Sunday Million busting 8th for $19,993.60, and "R&O--UL" final-tabled the Sunday Supersonic earning $17,571.44 for 5th.
