PokerStars doubles money on Sunday
Sunday is always a big day at PokerStars, but this week the poker site ramped it up even bigger by doubling the prize pools for the Sunday Million and the Sunday Warm-Up.
That meant a $2 million guaranteed prize pool for the Sunday Million and a $1 million prize pool for the Warm-Up as part of the PokerStars 2X promotion.
The significant boost to the prize pool also created a record playing field for the Sunday Million, as more than 14,000 players took part in the tournament. When all the money was counted, the Sunday Million actually offered a $2,836,200 prize pool this week, with the winner getting more than $200,000.
TimDawg888 took down the Sunday Million to take home that prize after the game played into the wee hours this morning. He received $235,350 after a three-way chop with xanja and PokerMurphy1.

The biggest beneficiary from the increased prize pool of the Sunday Warm-Up at PokerStars was Parnish. The American player earned more than $100,000 for his win on Sunday.
