Mayu Roca Uribe

Things seemed relatively quiet in the online poker world on Sunday due to all of the live action around the globe, but that doesn't mean several big prizes weren't given out. The PokerStars Sunday Million title was captured by Finland's "VanDobeln" and he won $245,193.87 outright. He defeated a field of 8,173 players to take the victory.

In the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up, Dejan "dejanaceking" Divkovic continued his hot 2013 by taking second place for $81,759.60. "cmontopdeck" proved the victor for $109,712.77, and falling in third place was Jordan "JWPRODIGY" Westmorland for $57,651.00.

Mayu "marroca5" Roca won the PokerStars Sunday 500 for $78,480.40, and Melanie "Callisto 5" Weisner took home $26,932.62 for a third-place finish in the PokerStars Sunday 2nd Chance.

Probably the most epic feat of the day came from "ynarrol." He won $107,874.08 after defeating an enormous field of 109,990 players in the PokerStars Sunday Storm 2nd Anniversary. For just an $11 buy-in, that event boasted a $1 million guarantee and a first-place guarantee of $100,000.
