Once the king of high-stakes online poker, Lodden returned to form Sunday, chopping the $215 Sunday Warm-Up on PokerStars three-handed after getting past a 4,807-player field that also included a final table appearance by Isaac “westmenloAA” Baron.

In the end, however, the Norwegian was forced to settle for third and a $119,600 score as J4d3dr4g0n ($122,112.76) went on to book the win beating Philipoune ($100,000) heads-up.

The PokerStars Sunday Million remained the Internet's biggest event Sunday with 8,630 players creating a massive $1,726,000 prize pool.

Paul “paulgees81” Volpe collected the title and $253,894.60 first-place prize without the benefit of a chop, beating ser svensson ($185,545) heads-up and leaving grayzee1 to take $129,450 in third-place money.
