A solid Dan “djk123” Kelly performance highlighted another intense Sunday of tournament poker yesterday.

Kelly, who has won two WCOOP bracelets, outlasted 4,682 players to make the final table of the PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up.

Kelly ultimately fell short heads-up to FIGARO10 but did secure a hefty consolation prize of $109,300 for second place. FIGARO10 took the $147,187 first place prize.

Meanwhile the biggest tournament of the day - the PokerStarstars Sunday Million - drew 9,371 players to create a prizepool of $1.8 million.

Unknown online player tony6733 was the biggest winner of the day with a $267,640 first place finish in the Sunday Million. It was one of the rare instances of the Sunday Million that did not involve a chop.

If Rousso had made the final table she would have had to contend with the likes of David "dpeters17" Peters and Darryll "df1986" Fish who finished fourth and seventh respectively. raphou took top honors for $92,565.

Over on Full Tilt Poker the $750k guaranteed belonged to BOOP BOOP NEB who, after a chop with Sebago2811 heads-up, took down $113,270.
