Kanit, Roca Roll to Massive Victories in Sunday Million, Warm-Up

Kanit heat is real.

His feet are soaked but his cuffs are bone dry and everything's coming up Mustapha Kanit these days.

The growing legend of Italy's Mustapha Kanit continues to, err, grow as he added yet another impressive, iconic tournament win to his resume over the weekend.

The box ticked this time? The PokerStars Sunday Million, the biggest weekly tournament online and a veritable gauntlet to navigate through over an epic day.

No big deal for Kanit, though, as he weaved through this week's 5,717-player field to claim $177,229.79 and his first Sunday Million title.

For most poker players it would be the culmination of a lifelong dream to win the Million but for Kanit it's barely even a blip on the radar.

In the last 10 months alone he has three outright High Roller titles worth almost $2.5m. He's Italy's all-time live money leader and most recently was the #1 pick in the Global Poker League draft.

As if that isn't enough, his signature moustache is also notably spectacular. Full results from the last Sunday Million final table before next week's $10m 10th Anniversary edition:

Roca Scoops Sunday Warm-Up

Kanit wasn't the only notable name to knock off a major Sunday title this week.

2014 Spirit of Poker Most Inspiring Player nominee Mayu "marroca5" Roca also put another nice feather in his cap with a win in the Sunday Warm-Up.
