John Dolan and Chris Moorman both had notable victories in one of the most name-heavy Sundays in recent online poker history.

Dolan, who finished sixth in the 2010 WSOP Main Event in November, outlasted 1,085 players to win the elite PokerStars Sunday 500 for $95k.

Not to be outdone, Moorman outlasted 1,402 players to win the Sunday Second Chance for $50k.

It’s been quite a week for the Brighton resident, who made a final-table appearance at the Aussie Millions this weekend.

Even the usually unknown-dominated PokerStars Sunday Million didn’t disappoint with Anthony "wwwBTHERECOM" Gregg, Justin “ZeeJustin” Bonomo, Vanessa Selbst and Ryan “daut44” Daut at the final table.

Gregg, who made the final table of the PCA in 2009, beat Daut heads-up to take down the $195k first-place prize. Thanks to a three-way deal, though, Daut won $208k for second place.

Meanwhile Full Tilt technically held the biggest online poker tournament this weekend with the $1.5 million guaranteed tournament drawing 14,409 players to create a guarantee-shattering $2.8 million prize pool.

The final table had several known pros with David “Doc Sands” Sands, Matt Vengrin and Anthony Bruno looking to cash in.

Bruno was the ultimate victor winning an astounding $439,877.

Aaron “SpanishKey” Been won the Full Tilt Sunday Brawl for $266k. Adam “Roothlus” Levy came just short of the final table finishing in 18th place.

Finally UB Poker was hosting the main event of its recent UBOC6, which meant a $1 million guaranteed tournament.

Thiago “THEDECANO” Nishjima outlasted all 1,036 entrants to add $231k to his bankroll.
