Just two months after finishing fourth in the Sunday Brawl on Full Tilt, Danny "THE_D_RY" Ryan went on to win the whole thing on another busy Sunday online.

Because it drew a whopping 2,818 players, the Sunday Brawl win represented a six-figure score for Ryan, who has several deep finishes on the European Poker Tour, over $500k in live tournament earnings and is no stranger to big scores online, having previously won the PokerStars Sunday Million.

But while Ryan grabbed $114,410.80 for his efforts, the day's biggest score was reserved for the player who finished second in the day's biggest event.

The PokerStars Sunday Million drew a crowd of 8,603 creating a $1,720,600 prize pool. Thanks to a five-way chop when he had the chip lead, xxndavisxx walked away with $167,775.38 in prize money.

A player by the name of kixelsyd went on to beat xxndavisxx heads-up, collect the title and $30k set aside for the eventual winner, but the $160,215.83 he earned still amounted to just second place money.

Joining Ryan in the ranks of online poker stars making noise this Sunday was Jonathan "MONSTER_DONG" Karamalikis.

The Aussie online pro, who made the final table of the Aussie Millions $100k High Roller this past January, added $64,812.50 to his already more than $1 million in career online tournament earnings with a second-place finish in the PokerStars Sunday 500.

Squee451 beat Karamalikis heads-up to take the title and $89,493.10.

Over on Full Tilt, the big money on the day went to a player named at0247, who took down the $750k Guaranteed for $135,549.48.

Meanwhile, JSHARK4 took the $200k Guaranteed on UB, booking a $46,625.04 score.
