David Yan

The first week of the 2013 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) at PokerStars is behind us, and 21 of the 44 events on the schedule are in the books. Two of the SCOOP events (both two-day affairs) replaced the PokerStars Sunday Million and Sunday Warm-Up again this week, but there were still several major events on the slate.

PokerStars Supernova Elite VIP member David “MissOracle” Yan was among Sunday's biggest winners. Yan won the PokerStars Sunday 500 to collect $75,000 after agreeing to a four-way deal at the final table. Other notables scooping big paydays at PokerStars were Steve "betrthanphil" Tripp, Paul "Paolo69" Foltyn, TJ "1BigAceHole" Ulmer, and Jonas "Telefonkiosk" Lindlof.

Over at Full Tilt Poker, "wptchamp9" emerged as the winner of the $350K Guarantee after besting a tough final table that included online superstars Scott "SCTrojans08" Freeman, Griffin "Flush_Entity" Benger and Nick "PureCash25" Rampone. Meanwhile, "tuviejareda" took down the Sunday Brawl for $40,000. Adam "The Squee" Sherman and recent Sunday Million winner Nick "gbmantis" Niergarth also made the Sunday Brawl final table.

Here's a look at the results from the Sunday major tournaments:
