Posted at 18:00 2012-11-06 by Mickey Doft

For the third time, PokerStars offered several of the Sunday Majors twice as part of its Double Vision Sunday promotion. The result? Eight players earned six-figure scores, led by the $219,425.24 that "Akademnuk" earned for winning the Sunday Million. Joao "Joao M." Marcelo Andrade, Kevin "flopped6810" Sharp, and Max "$kill Game" Weinberg were among the other six-figure tournament winners yesterday. Also victorious on Sunday were Alexander "RedIceRap" Gerlach and Pat "obiedman" O'Brien.

$200+$158,027$1,605,400

Felipe "mojave14" Ramos (11th - $8,588.89) and Adam "Roothlus" Levy (27th - $3,531.88) made deep runs in the Sunday Million, each making the final three tables. A heads-up deal at the end guaranteed each player about $200,000 with $20,000 still left to play for. "Akademnuk" and "Kabira" didn't waste much time, getting the chips into the middle in a standard race. "Kabira," the shorter stack, looked to hold with {5-Spades}{5-Clubs} against the {A-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} of "Akademnuk," but the board ran out {A-Spades}{2-Spades}{2-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} to lock up the victory for "Akademnuk."
