Mike McDonald

Mike “Timex” McDonald secured his biggest online PokerStars cash yesterday, shipping the $109 Sunday Rebuy for $56,813. Casey “bigdogpckt5s’ Jarzabek took down two titles earning just under $25,000 with victories in a $51 Hyper Turbo on PokerStars and The Big Ben on Full Tilt Poker.

Canada’s biggest cashes of the day came from “mikael0117” and “AB_Poker_12” who both made the Sunday Million final table. A six-way chop was accepted and “AB_Poker_12” busted 6th for $105,000, more than double the $49,000 that 6th place was originally scheduled to be paid. “mikael0117,” who was the shortest stack when the deal was made, finished second for $101,804.

PokerStars SuperNova “NastyMinder” was the biggest winner of the day courtesy of the six-way chop in the Sunday Million.
