Apparently winning the Super Tuesday tournament on PokerStars wasn’t enough for online player mypokerf because he took down the Sunday Million yesterday.

The Russian outlasted 462 players on Tuesday to win $60,000. He did one better last night by outlasting 7,004 players and taking down $210k.

It was a particularly busy Sunday for online poker with millions being awarded on sites like PokerStars, Titan Poker and 888poker.

We’ve got details on some of yesterday’s biggest tournaments below.

PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up

The second biggest tournament on Sundays, the $500k GTD Sunday Warm-Up on PokerStars, drew an impressive field of 3,468 runners.

Among the players to buy-in were Team PokerStars pros Martin Staszko, Stavros “IDOLLS” Kalfas, Richard Toth, Mickey Petersen and George Lind III.

Greek pro Kalfas made it the furthest before finally hitting the rail in 98th place for nearly $1,000.

PokerStars Sunday Million

Russian mypokerf won both the Sunday Million and Super Tuesday this week to cash for nearly $300k on PokerStars.

The 7,004 players combined to create an overall prizepool of $1.4 million. In a slightly unusual turn of events there was no chop at the final table and when mypokerf beat jonyctt heads-up, he secured the entire first place prize of $2010k.
