Sunday Poker Sunday: Majors scored by Griffin Benger and Michael Tureniec in Bahamas

Super Poker Sunday
Share this

Michael Tureniec and Griffin Benger hit the virtual felt in the Bahamas instead of the beach at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure this month. The $10,000 Main Event and the $25,000 High Roller sent the two pros out the door to win back their buy-ins and then some on Super Poker Sunday. Tureniec won the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up and took home more than $106,000 after a deal was made heads-up and Benger scooped the PokerStars Sunday 500!

Wade "ricestud" Townsend — PokerStars $109 Sunday Rebuy; Alexander "Aleseed" Sidorin — PokerStars Sunday 2nd Chance; and Ben "jenbizzle" Jones — PokerStars Sunday Supersonic, took home first-place prize money. "Epiphany77" won $201,711 after a three-handed deal was made at the PokerStars Sunday Million final table. Epiphany77 ended the event with a runner-up finish to "D_DIGGLER99" who took home $189,044 for a first-place finish.
