Keven Stammen

The live tournament circuit was booming on Sunday with many top online players either in Montreal for the World Poker Tour or in Monaco for the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino EPT Grand Final. However, action on the virtual felts was busy as ever with PokerStars holding its usual slate of Sunday Majors and Full Tilt Poker offering its massive $1 Million Guaranteed MiniFTOPS Main Event.

Some big-name players made deep runs in the PokerStars Sunday Million this week. High-stakes regulars Keven "Stammdogg" Stammen and Tobias "PokerNoob999" Reinkemeier headlined the final table, and Stammen went on to chop the tournament heads up to collect a $178,791 payday. "Neeeeek" eventually defeated Stammen for the title and $200,000 prize.

Others collecting big scores on Sunday were Sebastian "p00cket00" Sikorski, Jason "NovaSky" Koon, James "croll103" Carroll, Thayer "THAY3R" Rasmussen, and William "Altrum Altus" Reynolds.
