Obviously cured of the World Series of Poker hangover, droves of players returned to the virtual felt Sunday making for a rather big day in online poker.

Being the last Sunday of July, PokerStars did its best to draw the masses by offering up a guaranteed $1.5 million prize pool for The Sunday Million. And with 8,319 entrants creating a $1,663,800 prize pool, no overlay was necessary.

Most of the biggest names in the online game however were shut out of the big money in Sunday's largest event as BarneyR2005 went on to take the title and $244,749.39 first-place prize, defeating B Buddy heads up.

Both B Buddy ($178,858.50) and third-place finisher nenita02 ($124,785.00) managed to pull six figures out of The Million and well-known pro Ricky Fohrenbach took 4th for $89k.

Six-figures were also the order of the day for highlandfox, who took down the Sunday Brawl on Full Tilt and added $104,951 to his bankroll.

And while the always entertaining Luke "_FullFlush1_" Schwartz made a deep run all the way to 14th, gaucho2121 came out on top of the 3,381-player field in Tilt's $750k Guaranteed to book a $132,787.50 win.

The PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up drew 4,265 players and despite a threat from the feared Isaac "westmenloAA" Baron (19th), BigFlopper01 booked the $120k win by defeating LVSEO ($113,193.14) heads-up.

Finally, UB's $200K Guaranteed drew 1,082 players with THE MOB RULES besting them all to take the $48,322.12 first-place prize.
