PokerStars.com, Full-Tilt players see dollar signs at Sunday events

With this rate of growth, PokerStars.com may want to consider changing the name of its weekly guarantee to the Sunday Two Million. Yesterday's event drew 7,600 entrants for a new record prize pool of $1.5 million.

SwedisRotKuk was the beneficiary of the well-fed prize pool, earning $187,504 after making a deal with miamihans at this week's PokerStars.com Sunday Million.

But if he hadn't agreed to the arrangement, the Swedish champion would have made off with $215,222.

With the final table down to heads-up and miamihans out-chipped 2-to-1, the players broke to make a deal. They settled on a by-the-chips payout that gave $187,504 to SwedisRotKuk and $136,092 to miamihans, with $30,000 left for the champion as per PokerStars.com rules.

The final table results are as follows:

6th 20princemild $33,580
7th Eskil $23,659

Full Tilt Poker's $400,000 guaranteed event also soared above its promised payday, with 2,473 entrants boosting the prize pool to $494,600.

No deals were brokered at this tournament however, as eventual champion imgrinding came to the final table with a gigantic chip lead.

After crippling runner-up im_the_dirt minutes into heads-up action, imgrinding finished him off for a $90,734 prize.

The final table results are as follows:
