Sunday Briefing


  • Jon "luckyfish89" Clark won more than $99,000 by finishing as runner-up in this week's Sunday Million at PokerStars.

Jon “luckyfish89” Clark was among the big winners online this weekend thanks to being the runner-up in the PokerStars Sunday Million.

It was one of the smaller Sunday Million tournaments of late, with “only” 5,003 entries processed, which meant the $1 million guarantee was exceeded by a mere $600. Three British players managed to navigate their way to the final table, “I am 8” was the first of them to fall, their run ending in a sixth-place finish worth $24,240.53.

Next of the Brits to bust was “Cr00kedF00t” in fourth-place for $49,221.61, with Clark falling at the final hurdle, his runner-up finish added a cool $99,946.53 to his lifetime online winnings, which now exceed $750,000.

While Clark was on his way to a superb tournament score, “Palmero92” was wrapping up a victory in the $215 Sunday Warm-Up, a win worth $46,542.56 after a four-way chip; Carl “swansfc_CJ” Johns finished in ninth-place in the same tournament for $4,436.81.
