Melanie Weisner made fourth in Full Tilt's $200k Guarantee Rebuy this week.

The fact it was Getaway Day at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Sunday didn't stop the online majors from filling up.

But it did leave room for a few new faces to book massive scores and well-known ones to get close.

The PokerStars Sunday Million still drew 8,677 despite many from the online poker world still in the Bahamas or trying to get out.

A guarantee breaking $1,735,400 prize pool left $255,281.66 for first and Benji79 grabbed it beating Loxagos ($186,555) heads up.

Even Pendos90 booked a six-figure score in the million taking third for $130,155.

The PokerStars Sunday Warm-Up drew a healthy 4,614 making the prize pool just under $1 million. There was a chop three-handed with marlin17 ($127,568.67) winning it over, RikTee ($100,784.80) and Dr. Yuba ($100,054.70).

Meanwhile, Absolute Poker pro Matt Vengrin made a final table appearance in the PokerStars Sunday 2nd Chance, but once he busted fourth there was a chop three handed and drawgle17 held on to book a $41,176.29 score.

It was about the right time for another Full Tilt $1 Million Guarantee and it drew 1,969 players making for a juicy $1,181,400 prize pool.

Novemeber Niner John Dolan had a deep run end in 20th, but the big money was reserved for the top three.

Again there was a chop, but this left six figures for winner KiKaMo ($176,731.10), runner-up elitesrush ($136,568.30), and third place finisher TheoWalcott14 ($125,000).

Finally, Full Tilt's $200,000 Guarantee $150+$13 Rebuy saw 592 entrants, a whopping 796 total rebuys and 512 add-ons to create a $285k prize pool.

Melanie Weisner came fourth for $24,937.50 and Mohsin "chicagocards1" Charania took third for $32,062.50, but it was NatWork working up to first and a $71,250 first-place prize.
