“WarleyBruno” WINS SUNDAY MILLION FOR $145K
The weekend’s biggest winner unsurprisingly came from the week’s biggest tournament: the $215 SUNDAY MILLION.
It was Brazil’s Warley Bruno “WarleyBruno” Galvão who overcame the 5,369 field to take it down outright for $145,086. This is his second SUNDAY MILLION final table of 2018, having finished eighth back in July for $13K.
Christian “eisenhower1” Jeppsson
Victory wouldn’t be easy for Galvão though, as he found himself heads-up versus Swedish crusher Christian “eisenhower1” Jeppsson. The former no.1 online player in the world banked $101,814 for his runner-up finish.
JAIME STAPLES FINISHES THIRD IN SUNDAY WARM-UP ($18K)
Sunday’s session went superb for Team PokerStars Online’s Jaime Staples, who would finish third in the $215 Sunday Warm-Up for $18,235.88. The #UltimateSweat Twitch star celebrated the victory by purchasing a piece of art (one which Spraggy found rather questionable):

The Warm-Up had 1,087 entries, creating a $217,400 prize pool. The trophy would go to China’s ice931128, who also collected $35,275 for the win.
BIG BOUNTY BUILDER WINS FOR “patasss” & “CrazyLissy”
The popular Bounty Builder series continued throughout the weekend. The biggest bounty victory came in the $2,100 NLHE [8-Max, Sunday High Roller SE], which was won by Argentina’s “patasss” for $81,914 plus $63,632 in bounties.
Russia’s “CrazyLissy” came out on top in the $530 NLHE [High Roller SE] for $64,151 plus $48,081. Interestingly, “CrazyLissy” found themselves three-handed with two of the world’s best online players: Sweden’s Niklas “Lena900” Åstedt and Simon “C Darwin2” Mattsson. The former would finish second for $45,728 plus $12,746, while the latter banked $32,596 plus $9,776.

MONEYMAKER TOUR BALTIMORE STOP WRAPS UP
Nitis Udornpim will be heading to the Bahamas come January, but instead of his regular $86 local tournaments, he’ll be playing the $25,000 PokerStars Players Championship.
Funny thing is, Udornpim didn’t even win the latest leg of the Moneymaker tour. But thanks to some nifty deal making, he’s the one with the Platinum Pass.
200 PLATINUM PASSES AWARDED
PokerStars has now handed out an incredible 200 Platinum Passes worth $30,000 each so far. Congratulations to the winners so far!
