Famous online grinder George “Jorj95” Lind III highlighted busy day of Sunday tournaments yesterday.

All the major tournaments were firing with the PokerStars Sunday Million, Warm-Up and even the big iPoker $200k easily eclipsing their guarantees.

The day also saw some deep runs from noted pros Shane “shaniac” Schleger, Martin Staszko, Alex Kravchenko and Chris “ImDaNuts” Oliver.

We’ve got the scoop on the biggest tournaments of the day:

Adrienne “talonchick” Rowsome, Shane “shaniac” Schleger and Juan Pastor would all make the money but noted online grinder George “Jorj95” Lind would go one step further and make the final table.

Lind is famous for his impressive Sit & Go abilities on PokerStars and even made SuperNova Elite in just over two months in 2008.

This weekend Lind was playing for the first time since setting up his PokerStars account in Canada.

Lind didn’t last long at the final table, as he busted in ninth place, but he did pick up $12,040 for his efforts. It was Lind’s first appearance at the Sunday Million final table.
