Full Tilt's Sunday Mulligan took center stage on another busy Sunday in online poker, producing a star-studded final table.

The $216 event drew a healthy crowd of 1,142 players creating a $228,400 prize pool and while WISHIGOTFPPS secured the victory and $51,390.00 first prize, he had to beat World Poker Tour Player of the Year Faraz “The- Toilet 0" Jaka to do it.

Add in online legend and notable backer Cliff “JohnnyBax” Josephy doing a little of his own work by picking up $14,275.00 for fifth and this final table may have had more star appeal than any other on the net Sunday.

In the meantime, Mark "dipthrong" Herm, an online pro with over $3 million in web-based earnings who plays under the name "shipp itt" on PokerStars, took down the day's biggest score.

He managed to outlast a field of 7,661 to book a $229,833.60 win in the PokerStars Sunday Million.

And while fellow online star Jon "apestyles" Van Fleet came close to victory in the $215 Sunday 2nd Chance on PokerStars, he had to settle for a runner-up finish to Setherson2, who took the title and $48,668.80.

A three-way deal left close to three six-figure scores on the table in PokerStars' $215 Sunday Warm-Up.

Spain's el_rage took $120,194.97 and the honor of victory there while upay4mytreez and diphazz both earned over $90k.

Meanwhile, back on Full Tilt Poker, the $750,000 Guarantee had a near six-figure overlay as just 3,272 got in on the action.

In the end, -FrederickJame- walked away with the win and $132,787.50.

Finally, the UB $200K Guaranteed drew just 880, creating a $24,000 overlay. When all was said and done, LIFE_DONK proved perhaps he isn't one, booking the win and $45,700 score.
