Khan nearly rains down another win at PokerStars

Hevad Khan

Usually the big news from Sunday is the winner of the PokerStars Sunday Million, but occasionally it's one of the site's other major Sunday events that takes center stage. This week it was the Sunday Warm-Up, as Hevad Khan nearly took it down for another win.

Kahn, who is better known as RaiNKhAN, won a Sunday Warm-Up earlier this year and came within inches of winning another this past Sunday. He came in in second place to earn $58,000.

The winner of the event was Canadian ellgringo, who pocketed more than $80,000. The final table of the Sunday Warm-Up played out as follows:

The big winner of the day on Sunday was still the person who took down the Sunday Million, however. After a three-way deal, it was the_R3aLde4L, from the United States who had the win.
