There was plenty of action on offer on PokerStars this weekend, with the Bounty Builder Series playing through its 96th event. Here’s an update from Saturday and Sunday, including the Sunday Million results.


TODAY’S TOP STORIES

Sebastian “p0cket00” Sikorski becomes first double winner:
While most of us were relaxing, Canada’s Sebastian “p0cket00” Sikorski was hard at work on Friday night. It paid off big time, as he became the Bounty Builder Series’ first double champ.

Sikorski overcame a 1,964-strong field in #068: $109 Turbo to win $23,519 in total (including bounties). Add that to the $67,228 he already won with victory in #029 (a $1,050 NLHE event) and that makes it a very successful series indeed.

Huge spin-up for UK’s “isaacbarker”:
We saw yet another amazing satellite story over the weekend. The UK’s “isaacbarker” took down #082 ($55 NLHE) for $17,529 on Saturday night, having qualified for just $18.75.

The tournament had 2,722 total entries, creating a $136,100 prize pool.

The high rollers were online in force on Sunday, with 147 of the game’s best taking part in #089, A $5,200 NLHE High Roller. After nine hours and 11 minutes of play, it was the Netherlands’ “pm_marke” who emerged victorious, banking $180,062 for the largest individual prize of the weekend.

He overcame a tough final table which included Russian phenom “hello_totti”, high stakes cash game beast Wiktor “Iimitless” Malinowski, two-time SCOOP Main Event winner Gianluca “tankanza” Speranza, the red-hot Sami “lrslzk” Kelopuro, and UK crusher Michael “mczhang” Zhang, who we spoke to at EPT Barcelona back in August.
