Dario Minieri makes mark at PokerStars

Dario Minieri
PokerStars events are paying off big for Dario Minieri.

January has been a big month for Dario Minieri at PokerStars. He ended 2007 with wins in two events in the poker site's big Sunday lineup, and he's topped it off with two weeks in a row of taking down events.

This week, Dario Minieri came out on top of the PokerStars $5,200 Freezeout on Sunday. He received $100,000 for the win.

The $5,200 Freezeout takes place each week as a part of PokerStars' big Sunday tournament lineup. The event has a 20-player max and only the winner gets to walk away with any cash.

On Jan. 20, Minieri also registered a win in another of PokerStars' Sunday tournaments. This time it was the High-Stakes Showdown for a $20,000 win.


The Showdown is a heads-up series that costs $10,000+$300 to buy into. Minieri has cashed in the event in the past as well.

Minieri's win this week was just a drop in the bucket compared to what the major tournaments at PokerStars handed out to winners Jan. 27.
