Sunday Sale ran last week and was won by the United Kingdom’s Charlie “chazcombes” Combes who walked away with $17,000 for his $55 investment!

An hour later, at 7:30 p.m. CEST, the $15,000 Sunday Sale Monsoon shuffles up and deals. $15,000 is guaranteed for a $27.50 buy-in. If this week’s tournament follows in last week’s footsteps, you can expect a top prize in the region of $4,454 which was won by Sweden’s “MakanHolm”.

Lastly, the $20,000 Sunday Sale Whale is available to enter for $160 instead of the usual $320. This tournament always attracts some superb players, one of which, “Weeman235”, took down the August 2 edition for $6,141.
