No deals for PokerStars Sunday events

The Spoils of War

It's not often that all the major events on Sunday at PokerStars finish without some sort of deal being made, but that was the case this week as each of them played out to the very end. The big winner was SAM66, who won more than $200,000 for taking down the Sunday Million.

More than 8,000 players turned out for the Sunday Million this week, with 1,233 of them earning money from the event. The top two players earned a six-figure cash.

SAM66 topped them all to take home $209,571.60. It came down to the Swiss player versus Shantaram, from France, in heads-up play.

On the final hand Shantaram went all-in with T 9 against SAM66's A 6. Facing a 7-1 chip deficit, Shantaram needed to win this race, but when the board came 5 3 3 6 J, he was out, pocketing more than $140,000 for second place.

The final table played out as follows:
