The sixth edition of the PokerStars MicroMillions series added additional excitement and heat to the online poker action over the weekend. The micro buy-in tournaments brought massive fields to the 20 tournaments that took place and produced payouts as big as $30,000.

Visit Learn.PokerNews.com for the full report of the weekend's MicroMillions 6 winners.

The Sunday Majors never slow down and a handful of notables took home big scores as evidence over the weekend. Ankush "pistons87" Mandavia ran the gamut of his true range of poker skills by winning the $109 Sunday Rebuy for almost $50,000 after a four-way deal was made at the final table. Thayer "THAY3R" Rasmussen made the winner's circle also by besting a tough final table to take home the title in the Full Tilt Poker Sunday Brawl for $50,320.

Germany's Tim "blumenkind53" Ulrich holds the honor of biggest winner by locking up $180,000 after a three-way deal was made at the PokerStars Sunday Million final table. Ulrich tried to win his second career Sunday Million title but third place had his name on it and first place was claimed by "liv_hbk."
