Super Poker Sunday: Bogdan "Lionet" Diaconu Wins $230K in PokerStars Sunday Million

Super Poker Sunday
Share this

The 2014 World Series of Poker opens the door to the world's biggest poker festival tomorrow and many of poker's top online talents are already on their way to Las Vegas, but that doesn't mean Sunday was a quiet day at the virtual felt at PokerStars and Full tilt Poker...it was just the opposite.

Bogdan "Lionet" Diaconu scooped the biggest payday on Sunday after winning the PokerStars Sunday Million when he outlasted a field of 6,676 to claim the $203,088 top prize. Norway's "fullhouseiii," finished third in the event and notched up the honor of having reached his second Sunday Million final table in three months. Back in February he finished runner-up to Lauri "IMS DURNK" Pesonen to take home $169,598 and Sunday found him adding another $106,816 to his bankroll.

Lars "Dsavo" Bonding, Joao Mathias, Ami "UhhMee" Barer, Christian "eisenhower1" Jeppsson, Evgeny "evgen sochi" Korchagin, and Jim "reelhugefish" Gilbert, were among the notables who managed big wins on Sunday with Gilbert making two major final tables at PokerStars.

The results from the Sunday Majors on PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, and WSOP.com:
