This was a good weekend for a lot of poker players, especially at PokerStars where one of the biggest tournaments ever was on. This was the PokerStars Sunday Million Special, one of the events of the PokerStars ‘Guinness World Record’ year-end spectacular. The PokerStars Sunday Million was worth $2.5 million with PokerStars’ increased guarantee, but with an amazing 16,260 participants, the prize pool in that tournament was $3,252,000. The winner, Ip_SakiSaki took home a hefty prize of more than $331,378.80.  Despite the big action at PokerStars, there was a good turnout for the tournaments at Full Tilt as well, and in the Full Tilt $75,000 Guarantee, jochee took home a prize of $138,276, his biggest win so far. The Bodog $100,000 Guarantee was not held this Sunday.
