Chad Brown

Team PokerStars pro Chad Brown isn’t known as an online player, but that didn’t stop him from placing third in the Sunday 500 for $50,255 last night.

Brown was perhaps the most notable player to make a final table on another busy Sunday of online tournaments.

The PokerStars Sunday Million drew 9,235 to create a prize pool of $1.8 million. The biggest chunk of that prize pool went to Brazilian player Mr Brizza who beat allaces43 heads-up to take the title after the two made a deal.

Mr Brizza took $243,843 while allaces43 settled for $213,843.

TheConcept78 outlasted all 4,694 entrants in the Sunday Warm-Up to take down a $147,310 first place prize.

Meanwhile, in the Sunday 500, Brown nearly won, but couldn’t get by jkoon1985 and Marinersheep who finished one-two. jkoon1985 secured $91,305 for the first-place finish.

Brown’s last live cash game back in February in a preliminary event at the L.A. Poker Classic.

Over on Full Tilt, the MiniFTOPS concluded with its $55 main event. The tournament pulled 2,475 players creating a $965k prize pool.

The number-heavy online player “0 – 190682 – 0” won the event for $142,037.

Beyond the finale of Mini-FTOPS, Full Tilt was also hosting its monthly $1 million guarantee. A total of 2,218 players bought-in creating a $1.1 million prizepool. Jeremy “endlessj83” Menard won the event for $180,123.

deuceballz outlasted all 2,532 players in the Sunday Brawl to win $102,839.

Finally, UB featured an all-star line up at the final table of its $200k Guaranteed Tournament, including Rayan “RKRUOK” Nathan and Danny “THE_D_R_Y” Ryan. Up-and-coming Lauren “SUPERMODL” Kling also finished in 16th for $1,298.

Ryan finished in fifth for $11k, Nathan in fourth for $13,605 and unknown player SALTTHEEARTH outlasted all 1,046 players to win $46,759.
