Another online poker Sunday is in the books at PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker. The two leading online poker rooms were jam-packed with players this week, and several notables were awarded big paydays across the many major events on the schedule.

The day's biggest earner was "Pr0fiteer" who received $222,300 for taking down the PokerStars Sunday Million. The player from Belarus bested a field of 7,410 to capture the elusive honor of Sunday Million champion. Also making deep runs in that tournament were Team PokerStars Pro Stavros "IDOLLS" Kalfas and Scott "BigRiskky" Clements.

Among the notables winning tournaments on Sunday were Calvin "cal42688" Anderson (PokerStars Sunday Supersonic), Ozgur "phaplap" Arda (PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up) and Dimitar "trionojnika" Yosifov (PokerStars Sunday 500). Others collecting big scores were Mike "Pipedream17" Dietrich, Randy "rh300487" Hereman, David "Betudontbet" Emmons, Chris "Big Huni" Hunichen, and Frederik "Fred_Brink" Jensen.
