The Sunday Briefing: Jonas Mackoff at it Again

The Sunday Briefing

Another Sunday grind has passed. Yesterday’s Sunday Funday was full of opportunities for players to enter the spotlight as FTOPS XXV, the Sunday Million, and a huge overlay were up for grabs.

A technical mishap proved to be very expensive for PokerStars on Sunday. The very popular Sunday Warm-Up, which generally has three hours of late registration, closed upon launch with only 1240 entries causing Stars to fork out almost$240,000 in overlay. Germany’s “KeyserMM” took down the title and the $85,000 first place prize.

The top finish from the Great White North came from “insanocut” who finished second in the PokerStars Sunday Million after a four-way chop, earning $163,000. Canada also saw success on Full Tilt, who are hosting FTOPS XXV, as four players final-tabled Event 16. Jonas “donut604” Mackoff shipped the top prize of $117,785 after a heads-up chop.

Here's a full look at the results from the Sunday Majors on PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker:
