Scott Clements, BigRiskky, wins the PokerStars Sunday Millions.

Scott Clements is running hot at the poker tables these days - and by these days, we mean the last 14 months. The latest win on his resume is the PokerStars Sunday Million.

Known as BigRiskky on the poker site, Scott Clements took on the PokerStars Sunday Million Dec. 16 and came out on top for a $165,552.01 win. His online success matches the live tournament success he's been having.

He first got some notice in the poker world when he won a World Series of Poker bracelet in 2006. He followed that up with a World Poker Tour win as well in October 2006.

This year has been just as successful for Clements as he added another WSOP bracelet to his collection while cashing in five events at the 2007 WSOP. Plus, he won the WPT North American Poker Championships in October.

His online win received some kudos from other online players including Shannon Shorr, who also took part in the event and cashed in 28th place.
