Noted pro Joe “planetearf” Serock highlighted a busy day of tournaments by winning the Full Tilt Sunday Brawl for over $100k.

Serock, who cashed four times in the 2010 WSOP, outlasted 2,578 players and then beat a tough final table that included Tommy "blanks plz" Wesley and John "eliterestla" Russo to take down this week's Brawl title.

The young online pro capped his night off by beating psfishfat heads-up to secure the $105,032 first place prize.

In other Full Tilt Sunday news the $750k Guaranteed once again had a small overlay, which made the tournament even more lucrative to the 3,443 players who entered.

Leopold "pojai" Chow was the ultimate victor taking down $90,811 for his efforts.

Over on PokerStars the Sunday Million was easily the biggest tournament of the day. The event drew 8,190 to create a prizepool of $1.6 million.

Online player Peetoon grabbed the biggest chunk of the prizepool by taking down first place for $232,362.

The PokerStars Sunday 500 was perhaps the most intriguing tournament from a pro's point of view as Faraz "The-Toilet 0" Jaka, David "Cairns1987" Cairns and Jeff "jeff710" Hakim all made the final table.

In the end it was Dylan "Pokerl)evil" Horton who took top honors for $87,400.

Finally over on UB it was the final day of UBOC5, which meant it was time for the $1,050 buy-in, $1 million guaranteed main event.

The event drew 1,032 players and Peter "APATHY123" Jetten was perhaps the most recognizable pro to go deep.

The Canadian made it all the way to the final table before he was finally ousted in fifth place for $56,244.

First place would eventually go to online player CHAZ_MAN_C who took down $230,455 for his efforts in the event.
